Chris & Cari, Wisp Resort Wedding

wispweddingdeepcreekweddingphotographyarpasiphotography-130GO AHEAD,pin thisThis wedding is especially dear to my heart because Cari’s sister is one of my very best friends. We’ve known each other since kindergarten and when you know someone that long their family becomes yours. I cannot tell you how special is was for me to be able to be there for Cari’s big day. Cari is funny, independent, and loyal. She has always known who she was even from a young age. I’ve seen Cari date and honestly I don’t think any guy measured up to all she had to offer…that was, until Chris came along. Chris is kind, sweet, and caring and together they are a perfect match. I have never seen Cari as happy in her life than when she is around Chris and I don’t think I’ve ever seen Cari smile as much either. You can just tell that they are right for each other and I’m so glad that Chris continued to fight for her! They have quite the story and I will try to tell you about it throughout this blog. First, Chris and Cari met online and had a great first date. For Chris, he knew right away that Cari was the one. Chris, however, lived pretty far away and things kind of fizzled out. Time went on and Chris could not get out of his head that he had let Cari get away so he wrote her an honest and heartfelt email, explaining how he felt and asking her out to dinner. Little did Chris know that Cari’s mom had recently passed away and her condo had burned down. So this gesture was perfect timing for Cari, to have someone reach out and care for her. From there, everything came together…a proposal on top of a mountain-side in New Hampshire to a ceremony on top of a mountain-side in Maryland…these two are now married! It was such a fun weekend away for everyone to be able to just celebrate Chris and Cari! Congrats guys, hope you like the pictures!!

Cari wore her sister’s wedding dress, which was so special and something I had never seen before.  If you’d like to check out her sister’s Jamaican wedding click here.
