A Foundation for the Carolinas Wedding | Charlotte Wedding Photographer

I have so so many good stories from this day. We’ve been working with Nora + Dan for about a year while they planned their wedding so through engagement photos and lots of planning meetings, we’ve gotten to know them– and their senses of humor. While I was putting this blog together, I was actually laughing out loud at several of these photos reliving some of the moments.

From the moment we walked in to Nora’s hotel room that day, we heard the bridesmaids and her guessing just what kind of shenanigans Dan might try to pull during the day. He’d already hinted that there might be something funny coming, BUT no one had any clue what that might be. Dan is just an all around hilarious guy and teamed up with his twin brother, you just never know what is going to happen. HOWEVER, it turns out that the funniest moment of the day was completely unscripted because that’s just who Dan is– he’s hilarious and just really, really loves Nora.

Nora + Dan decided to write their own vows and each came prepared with several note cards to the ceremony. After Nora read hers, Dan began. As he completely seriously declared his love for Nora, he would throw the notecard on the floor—which got funnier with each card. If you want to see it, scroll down to the ceremony–even the officiant is cracking up. We loved it. It was so completely Nora + Dan.

I had a really good time going through these photos to make the blog post because you can see so much happiness. It was truly so much fun to see Nora + Dan and watch their families interact. We wish you guys so much happiness in the years to come!
