Goodness, I don’t even know where to begin with Erin and Paul’s Vandiver Inn wedding. The day itself was absolutely beautiful- I mean, you just couldn’t have asked for a better day. But the day- the weather- the dress- the details… none of that was anything, compared to Erin and Paul together. Apart, they are kind, thoughtful & funny- but together… together they are connected in a way that is so rarely seen. I’ve witnessed hundreds of couples pledge to spend their lives together, over the years, but none quite like Erin and Paul. These two- man, the universe really knew what it was doing, when it put these two together. Perhaps it is because they are both delightfully dorky and incredibly kind; or, perhaps it is because they are both tall and unbelievably good looking? Whatever it is, I’m glad they found each other.

My favorite part of the entire day, and the moment from their wedding that I feel best embodies how much these two are meant for each other, was just moments after their first look. Prior to seeing each other, Erin and Paul seemed a bit more nervous than your average wedding bears. But then they had a moment together. They held each other, they cried, and they laughed. And right as they pulled themselves together, Paul turned to Erin and said “That’s it! We did it!!!!” It was as if the most stressful part of the wedding day, was the time they spent apart- and once they were back together, all of the stress and worry and anxieties of the day, just melted off of them, in a way I’ve never seen before.

Happy tears were flowing all day long and it was amazing to witness. Congratulations, Erin and Paul! I can’t wait to see what life brings for you!
