To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.

Wedding at the Parlour at Mann's Chapel

As they stood, surrounded by their friends and family, Allen said they chose everything for their wedding intentionally. They wanted to make sure each piece would represent them well. The Tuscan theme and historic elements, the spiritual foundation and excellent food, the dancing, the wine.

But what really represented them that night was the happy faces around the room. Those who loved them well and supported their decision. Their people are the ones who make them who they are. Not only on that day but every day.

Holding back tears, a speechless Judy found herself in full agreement. They were exactly where they were supposed to be and overflowing with joy. The room cheered and everyone celebrated these two wonderful friends.

Chapel Hill was picture perfect over the weekend as well. The temperature had just dropped out of the high 90s to be a mild 70 and everything was a bright green from the rain the night before. They couldn’t have asked for a better day.

Everyone in their wedding party was also family so we simply had to add Judy’s beautiful mother to make the family formals complete. :)

Just as their new marriage was born out of their beautiful history together, the chapel was born out of so many beautiful historic elements. Old doors frames were made into mirrors, floor boards into tables and now this new family out of two previously separate ones. Abigail said she knew Allen was going to be a keeper when the pets seemed to approve of them together, and now too, all their children approved and were overjoyed to see them so happy.
