Real Wedding: Samantha + David | Jessie’s Girls | Cary, NC

bride and groom smilingThere are wedding receptions that are parties. And then there are wedding receptions that are PAR-TAYS! Samantha and David’s magnificent wedding at the Umstead Hotel & Spa in Cary, NC most definitely falls into the latter category.

The couple booked the band, Jessie’s Girls, for a night of non-stop dancing. With strong male and female vocalists, killer dance moves (the band has worked with Beyonce’s choreographer!), and talented musicians, fun is practically guaranteed. Guests from young to old flocked to the dance floor and kept it packed the whole night.

Helping Samantha and David achieve their wedding dreams was an A-team of event professionals. We are especially grateful to the oh-so-talented Ginny Corbett for sharing these incredible images from the day.
