I love everything about these two so I’m just going to share a few of my observations.  First of all, they are honest, authentic, down-to-earth, and considerate people.  They are completely in love with one another, which is apparent in every action, affectionate gesture, and glance that they share.  And if that wasn’t proof enough, their vows to one another were the most poetic that I have ever heard.  I wish I could remember the specifics word for word, but essentially, they both said the EXACT vows that you would want your future spouse to utter on your wedding day.  They adore, respect, and appreciate one another and I cried throughout their meaningful vows.  And as a lovely side note, Shoshana and Noah are 100% for gender equality.  Shoshana walked herself down the aisle, they both broke the glass(es) at the end of their ceremony, and all of their wedding vendors were female-owned companies (holler!).  Really, these two could not be any more awesome.  I am so happy that Shoshana and Noah found me and that they were my first ever North Carolina wedding!!  The precedent has been set, y’all.  Congratulations, S + N!!  Love you guys.

This was our first wedding of the season, and what a fantastic way to start!  Kasey and Shawn have sooooo much chemistry.  They constantly smile around one another and their eyes sparkle.  You get the sense that each one feels 100% lucky to be marrying the other.  Shawn respects and adores Kasey, and Kasey adores and respects Shawn.  It’s beautiful.  And if that wasn’t cute enough, they have adorable family members too!  Kasey’s and Shawn’s parents get along marvelously, and it was adorable to see all the meaningful moments shared between the moms, grabbing hands and/or tearing up.  And the same goes for the newlyweds’ siblings!  There were some tears on their parts too – or at least faces contorted in the effort to not cry – and it was really touching.  There was so much love, joy, and appreciation at this event.  It’s clear Kasey, Shawn, and their newly united families are going to have a great life together.  Congratulations to Kasey & Shawn and their families!
