It was such an honor to be part of Carla and Dan’s wedding day! These two are not only the most fun, lovable pair, but they are so caring with everyone around them! Ever since I met them, I could tell their love was at the center of everything about this wedding celebration!

Can you believe it rained most of the day and then it stopped a few minutes before when we were going to do their first look!? ūüôā We even had a magical rainbow come and say hi!

I was so in awe of Carla and Dan’s attitude and bubbly personality and how it was contagious to everyone around them!

Their ceremony was just as they are: sweet and honest. The officiant was a dear friend who prepared to share parts of their story, full of superheroes and fairytales pieces.

As you can see, friends and family had a fantastic time celebrating this newly married couple!  The reception was so much fun!

During their lovely reception , the Bride and Groom‚Äôs first dance was to Let’s Stay Together by Al Green, and it was the sweetest moment of the night.

The speeches everyone made were funny and thoughtful, and their guests dancing was great!

The dance was kicked off by the little ones and it was a great time for Carla and Dan to show their moves!

I am so infinitely grateful for Carla and Dan making me a part of such a beautiful day! I wish you the absolute best in your happy marriage!
