Doug & his son, Caleb.
How beautiful is this venue? If you're looking for a place for your wedding, Carolina Barn Weddings & Events is a really beautiful place! The owner, Ms. Kay, is great to work with!
Clara's mom's wedding dress & a note that she wrote to her.
There was a different quote on each table
We loved Clara's hair style!
"Something blue" The heart was cut from one of her dad's old shirts with a note written on it from him to Clara.
I thought this was the cutest thing... a lot of times throughout the day, Clara would look at Doug & then put her head down & smile like she couldn't believe this day was really here!
That moment of realizing that you walked down the aisle as a single person & out the aisle with the one you love the most. Together. As husband & wife.
I love these next few photos. Totally un-posed. Just two people, & their first moments as a married couple.
Family photos in front of a lake? Yes please!
You have to love trying to get posed photos of a fellow with such personality! :)
We really did get some of his sweet side too! :)
Have I mentioned the way these two look at each other?
Admiring her dress!
When I asked for one word that would describe them as a couple, Clara said, Epic. Yes, epic is exactly how I'd describe them during their couple photos!
"Life with you makes perfect sense. You're my best friend."
Clara: "We truly love being with each other and everyday things are fun just because we're doing them together."
Two people who worked together, became friends, each left that job, kept in touch, became best friends, & fell in love.
While taking these last two, Doug was off to the side watching. We'll just say that he seemed to approve of these pictures very much! :)
Cute cake topper for the win! :)
Clara & Doug had an anniversary dance. All the married couples got on the floor & then were asked to sit down if they had been married less than 24 hours, 5 years, 10 years, etc.
Clara's parents, her grandparents in the back, & Doug's parents.
Clara's grandparents had been married the longest & gave advice to Doug & Clara when the dance was over.
"A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you."
"Forever... Every day... You & Me."
