A little rain didn't dampen anyone's spirits as Abigail and Chris married in a beautiful ceremony at First Presbyterian Church of Charlotte and moved to Myers Park Country Club to celebrate.
Some people may have thought they were seeing double as both Chris, with brothers Brandon and Barry, and Abigail, with sisters Dorothy and Sallie, have twin siblings. The day was a wonderful family event with five grandparents on hand as well as numerous other family members and friends.
I knew the everything would run smoothly with Dina Berg Blazek and her team handling the planning duties. Karen Lockhart Litton and the staff at Myers Park Country Club helped make the evening memorable. And as always, Jay at In Bloom created amazing floral displays.
And a special thanks to my good friend, the talented Richard Israel, who graciously came along to work with me as our company photographer Laura Mueller was away on a trip to Spain.
Congratulations Abigail and Chris!
