Raleigh, NC | Red & Navy Fall Barn Wedding
"Rewind to the summer of 2014. God was at work bringing Angela and Steven to Camp Oak Hill. Angela grew up spending her summers at COH and was eager to go back to camp as a counselor. Steven, on the other hand, had worked two summers at COH and had recently graduated from college. After returning to Raleigh, Steven hadn’t yet secured a full-time job when he ran into Michael Orr, the camp director, while shopping at Target. Michael explained they needed more counselors and Steven could continue to apply and interview while on staff. Steven joined the staff just days before staff training began. Their first memory together is at staff training. Angela and Steven were paired up in a “speed dating” ice-breaker game. Steven began answering the question for their round when Angela interrupted him to say "I can't hear you, I am gonna need you to speak up.” They would continue to date long-distance while Angela finished her undergraduate degree at UNC Asheville. They shared many great memories of hiking through the Blue Ridge Mountains and eating at Asheville’s many great restaurants. Angela graduated and was accepted into the Occupational Therapy school at Winston Salem State. This allowed Angela and Steven to spend more time together and grow closer than they had ever been. Eventually this led to a breezy November afternoon where Steven decided to act on a feeling he had felt since the first day they met..."
Fast forward to their wedding day on a chilly November afternoon. The cozy barn welcomed all their loving friends and family from all over the world! The bridesmaids looked stunning in their red dresses against the Carlee Farm fall forest and the groomsmen complimented in their classic navy. The day was full of music, dancing, and fun. My favorite memory was when a fuse blew and the music abruptly stopped. Someone started clapping and someone else made up the catchy beat saying "no music" *clap clap clap* "no music". Soon, the whole dance floor caught on to the chant and a limbo contest promptly formed! It was so fun! Camp people are the best. That was just the perfect example of a framily coming together to lift everyone else up and to see the bright side no matter what happens.
It was so nice being back in North Carolina, and it was equally as nice having a wedding full of Latinos who knew how to throw the best party :D I'm so grateful for these two new friends! Drew and I so loved being a part of their celebration, and we truly did feel part of their day, because that's the kind of loving, thoughtful, generous people A+S are <3
