Josie & Abner's Sweet Wedding!! JC Raultson Arboretum, Raleigh NC

"My husband and I have known each other for over 10 years. We grew up in the same cul de sac, went to the same bus stop and saw each other every day. For years, we were just friendly neighbors that would talk occasionally and wish each other happy holidays. I am the one that initiated the friendship. He was the quiet one, and still is. So I would text him to hang out and we would go do fun things together. Eventually, we became best friends as we both were dating other people. We courted for a year and one day I thought to myself...he is everything I want in a man. He's kind, giving, patient, understanding, hard working and likes to have fun with me! It didn't take long to realize we both wanted to be bound to each other for the rest of our lives. We married quietly in a civil ceremony and my mother insisted on planning this lovely ceremony and reception. I am so grateful to her for this and I am excited to celebrate this wedding with our family and friends." - Josie
