Congratulations to Dia & Joe!  They were married over the Memorial Day weekend in the type of celebration that I absolutely adore:  a relaxed and intimate gathering with beloved friends and family, plus good food and drink!  After a quick First Look in The Glass Box, D&J exchanged vows in front of their 34 closest friends and family members in The Stockroom at 230 below.  I loved the setting and history of the site with the exposed beams, brick walls, and the huge wall of windows which framed Dia & Joe when they were pronounced husband and wife.  This celebration was a perfect reflection of D&J’s relaxed and genuine personalities, and I feel so lucky that they invited me to photograph it for them!  Congratulations, newlyweds!

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.
