Stephanie + Chuck 9.17.11

Stephanie and Chuck’s wedding was so sweet and special right from the start.  They were so candid with how they met (on Match.com!), their admiring love story, and of course, the romantic way Chuck proposed to Stephanie (which easily could have come from a Nicholas Sparks novel). 
All of Stephanie’s wedding festivities took place at the Chef’s Palette in Cary, NC.  The restaurant has the perfect setup to accomodate a ceremony, cocktail hour, and a reception for 120 guests!  Kathie Clark and her staff really know their stuff!  They were fantastic!   Plus the food was amaing too!  If you’re ever near the Stonebridge Shopping Center in Cary, check out Chef’s Palette. 
The impressive cupcake tower was courtesy of Sweet Bri’s.  Brianna did an amazing job not only with the biggest cupcake display ever, but the cupcakes themselves were soooo good!  My favorit was the chocolate cupcake with mocha frosting (it had little specks of ground espresso beans in it). 
Photos were take by Terrence Williams, thank you for sharing with us!!

In remembrance of loved ones.
no one wanted the party to end!
Luckily for these guys, Stephanie and Chuck had planned an intimate after-party at their (brand new!) home following the reception.  🙂  There was lots of food, drinks, cupcakes, live music, and games to entertain the little ones.  I heard the after-party went well into the wee-late hours.  😉
Stephanie and Chuck – thank you both for sharing your wedding with me!  I wish you and your new family un-ending joyfulness and blessings.  Salute!
