What do you get when you a bride from a really large Italian family marries a groom from a really large Italian family? One reeeeeeaaaally large Italian celebration…..filled with a lot of family, a lot of happy tears, a lot of belly laughs and a lot of hugs. In other words, you get Valerie & Matt’s Carolina Inn wedding!

I don’t think Valerie and Matt’s day could have been any more perfect. Or inspiring. From the way they look at each other to those smiles they smile at each other. From the amazing relationship they share with their families to the most touching homily I may have ever witnessed at a wedding. The tears flowed freely from the family and friends gathered to witness them promise to love each other, to always remember what matters most in marriage and to always put the other first.

Valerie and Matt…Thank you for having me as a part of your day. Thank you for allowing me to witness the love you share – with each other and with all those around you. The way you love is inspiring. Thank you for trusting me with the memories of your day. I am honored to have documented it for you. Much love… OXOX ~ R

Carolina-Inn-Wedding_Valerie-Matt0050 Carolina-Inn-Wedding_Valerie-Matt0052I absolutely adored these very sweet parent dances. Valerie danced with her dad and then they invited all the fathers and daughters to join them…and then Matt and his mom did the same with the mothers and sons.  Carolina-Inn-Wedding_Valerie-Matt0053 Carolina-Inn-Wedding_Valerie-Matt0061 Carolina-Inn-Wedding_Valerie-Matt0062 Carolina-Inn-Wedding_Valerie-Matt0063 Carolina-Inn-Wedding_Valerie-Matt0065

I think it’s safe to say these folks had a good time on the dance floor. From the YMCA to the Conga line…and everything in between….Randy kept the party hopping! Carolina-Inn-Wedding_Valerie-Matt0068 Carolina-Inn-Wedding_Valerie-Matt0066 Carolina-Inn-Wedding_Valerie-Matt0070
