Ana and Drew couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous day to get married! Wow! It was a perfect NC day by the lake at The Barn at Woodlake Meadows. This was my first time to this venue, and I was so pleasantly surprised. What a hidden gem! I provided the mics for the ceremony while an acoustic band played the music. It couldn’t have gone better!

As the ceremony ended, the guests made their way up to the deck and the band joined them to play more acoustic tunes. I was all set up and ready at the other end of the barn. As the cocktail hour ended, I lined up the bridal party to bring them in to “Crazy in Love” by Beyonce. Ana and Drew then went right into their first day “Stay with You” by John Legend.  Next, Ana and her dad danced to “There You’ll Be” by Faith Hill, and Drew and his mother danced to “Never Alone” by Jim Brickman and Lady Antebellum. After the welcome and blessing, the food buffet opened and it looked amazing.

As dinner came to a close, it was time for a couple of toasts and the cake cutting, and then my favorite part, the dancing! These folks definitely came to party! We only stopped for a quick bouquet and garter toss. More dancing led to a big sparkler exit for the newlyweds. The perfect ending to a perfect day! Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. McVicker!
