Chuck & Andy – a Classic Southern Groom and Groom wedding at The Umstead Hotel in Cary NC
The Umstead Hotel & Spa was the first venue that came to mind for these two handsome grooms who wanted a classy and sophisticated wedding. Chuck and Andy tied the knot with an outdoor ceremony and candlelit reception filled with sultry sophistication, perfected by their wedding coordinator, A Southern Soiree. This sophisticated same sex wedding was the definition of class and style with an A-list team, starting with the 5 Star Umstead Hotel, and finishing with their amazing artistic photographer, Adam Chapin.
Chuck Gavazzi and Andy Pacos met at work, where they are both VPs within the same national emergency medicine management company. For nearly a year Chuck noticed Andy around the hospital. Finally, a real conversation led to a first date. When Andy toasted to “new friendships,” Chuck knew he was in for the long haul, and years later, when Andy proposed, Chuck’s reply was “Absolutely.”
