Carrie & Mel | 09.22.18
I first met Carrie & Mel at her sister’s wedding last year. Emily & Zach were married at The Mansfield Barn with an incredible team of people by their side. One of the most valuable team member’s was Carrie, she was by her sister’s side every step of the way; carrying her dress in between photos and helping in any way possible. When Carrie reached out for wedding photography (for her own day!) I was ecstatic! I felt so honored to be chosen by the same family not only once but twice. I was over the moon excited! And guess who was right there by her side the entire day, Emily. She was beyond helpful getting everyone together for family portraits, I could of hired her to be my assistant!
Even though Carrie & Mel’s wedding day was different than Emily & Zach’s big barn celebration, it suited the two of them perfectly. Waterworks Food + Drink is a stunning location for a small intimate wedding, everything was just right. The views, the natural window light, the food & the cocktails. What more do you need besides your closest family & friends!
And that’s exactly what Carrie & Mel wanted. Their closest people all in one place to celebrate together. When Carrie’s Dad pulled out his stack of note cards for his toast, I knew we were in for a treat. Not only was his speech a poem but his rhyming was ON POINT. I was so impressed. I’ll admit I was definitely laughing as hard as the guests!
Carrie & Mel, I wish you a lifetime of sunset’s together as beautiful as the one on your wedding day. Thank you for having me be a part of it. It was truly an honor!
