What fantastic time it has been getting to know Christina and Carlo over the past year as we photographed many events leading up to their wedding. The engagement session in Downtown Durham was amazing. They were up for anything – including climbing up on top of an old truck in their nice clothes to get “the” shot.
Their wedding was nothing short of amazing. We had the most perfect of early fall NC days – the weather, the light, zero humidity and then to top it all off the party to end all parties. I will fully admit I DID do a little dancing in between the periods of time the camera was on at my face and I will also admit I was grooving even when it was.
The celebration of their marriage was just that – a LONG overdue celebration for these two and their families to unite in marriage.
This part of the post is the preparations and the ceremony – You will see there were far too many fantastic moments of this wedding to leave out of this blog. You simply MUST see all the gorgeous that was Christina & Carlo’s wedding day!
The bride and groom requested a special message to be included with their blog posts.
“Thank you to all of our family and friends, who joined us on our special day. Your love and support is matchless and so appreciated. We love you all! And, a special thank you to all of our vendors, who helped make our celebration so amazing and memorable.” – Christina & Carlo
