Carly+Megan // A Durham, NC Wedding

We were so thrilled to finally work with Megan and Carly when we didn’t have 100+ degree fevers like the day of their engagement shoot. It’s so much easier to work when you don’t feel like you’re going to die, eh? And what two better people to kick off our wedding season than these guys! They are nice and happy and so cute together all the time that they make everything really easy, and their wedding day was a blast. The weather was great, there was tasty food and cake and gluten-free cakes, everyone was in a good mood, and some guy named Tucker at The Franklin Hotel totally swooped in and saved the day with his ability to tie a bow tie. There was even a parking spot at the Coker Arboretum for pictures, which is a rare occurrence. We take all of these things to be a sign of good luck and fortune in their marriage (you guys didn’t know that us finding a parking spot in Chapel Hill is good luck for your marriage, did you? you learn something new every day!).

Megan’s currently finishing her dissertation in Kentucky, and then they’re planning to move to Durham because they love it here, but also so that Megan and I can use each other for haircut inspiration. And also so we can pet their Corgi. And so Carly can coach me in the ways of her cross stitching knowledge. We are super excited that Carly and Megan have found each other and are married and are moving back to our city! And we send these two very lovely and wonderful people a big heartfelt congratulations and an uncomfortably long hug from us to them.
