Aleasha & Chris got married in October at Saint Thomas Preservation Hall in downtown Wilmington, NC. When we were doing their engagement session last winter, we discovered that Aleasha and I were both from towns in Ohio that were only about 30 minutes apart. And we BOTH relocated to Wilmington and live here now. I LOVE IT.
Their wedding day was full of the perfect fall decor – sparkly maroon tablecloths and gorgeous greenery and glowing pumpkins. Their friends were so much fun to hang out with all night and they gave some great speeches – one of which knocked Chris to the floor in laughter. The dancing was….. well, it was one of those kinds of nights where the dance floor was so packed the entire night that I’d constantly be sandwiched between all these dancing fools. It was a blast. Aleasha & Chris treated me more like a guest than the hired help, and I’m so grateful to them for making my job so much fun. I don’t usually have drinks when I’m working weddings but Aleasha would make sure that I had a drink in my hand the entire reception, and who am I to tell a bride no!?!? The best part about their drinks though, was that they actually made and bottled their own wine, and it was delicious! She included SO MANY local businesses on their wedding day, too, including late night soft pretzels from Crofton’s Pretzels. This is one of those weddings that I wish we could relive over and over. Wishing you two a lifetime of dance parties and laughter just like your wedding day.
