Such a fun day as their Chapel Hill wedding photographer. Their day was beautiful and perfect and uniquely them. For being middle of the summer in Chapel Hill, it could have been so hot. But they had a lovely cloud cover that kept the temperature to a bearable hot…which if you’re at all familiar with North Carolina summers, bearable hot is very, very welcome in the summer.

I’m so behind in blogging and slowly but surely catching up. Even though this is from the summer, it’s fun to re-experience the day again. Blogging later allows me to hold on to weddings longer and relive the moments all over again.

Like the star of their day: their sweet little pup, aka the cutest ring bearer ever. Adorned in a tiny dog tux, he ran down the stairs of The Forest Theater in Chapel Hill so excited to see his parents at the bottom. It was the cutest thing ever. His tiny little stride, the way he was so excited, and that adorable tux. Just wait until you see his pictures!

Melanie and Ian, thanks for having me there as your Chapel Hill wedding photographer. I hope these photos always make you smile and remind you of how happy you guys were on that beautiful July day. Congratulations on your happily ever after! Give that sweet pup a hug and a dog treat from me!
