Molly+John // Merrimon-Wynne House Wedding.

We had a long distance Facetime consult with Molly and John many months ago for their wedding down here in Raleigh, NC and have been so excited to shoot their wedding ever since. They were planning from afar in Washington, D.C. and somehow managed to snag the best team of vendors, all of whom have a special place in our wedding vendor hearts. When we showed up on their wedding day and finally met Molly and John in person, we were amazed at how they immediately opened up to us. They both have great senses of humor and kept us all laughing all day, and everyone had a great time. Fun fact: this was our second wedding with a bride who has an identical twin sister, and I only confused them once initially (of course it helped that Molly put on her wedding dress shortly after I got there). John, while not having an identical twin, does have an amazing head of hair that was admired by many that day. Together with their families and DJ Randy Bennett, the dance floor was officially torn up (figuratively) and ice cream was eaten (literally) and we conquered our first Merrimon-Wynne House wedding. Congratulations to the wonderful Molly and John! Thank you for having us be a part of your day!
