If you don't smile when you look at Tommy and Ariel's wedding photos you're dead inside. Ariel is one of those girls that just makes you happy. She's bright and bold, silly and kind. She is the embodiment of sunshine in this world. Tommy is blessed to have found her. Ariel too, is blessed. Tommy is a good guy! He's a walking teddy bear, almost literally! No seriously...you'll see! We're often told during our client consultations that the reception is going to be filled with dancing and so much fun and sometimes (I'll be honest, it is sort of a let down). I mean, people dance and have fun, but it's normally the same group of people that dance. Not at Tommy and Ariel's reception...which was held at the beautiful Umstead Hotel and Spa in Cary, NC. Tommy and Ariel hosted a black tie reception with an elegant and upscale dinner but their family and friends could not wait to bust a move. They were on the dance floor before dinner service was complete! It was incredible and thanks to their DJ, we really thought these people might pass out from dancing. There was four straight hours of severe thunderstorms but none of them had any idea that just outside the ballroom 50 mph winds were rushing by and thunder and lighting were crashing because they were in non stop party mode. Of course, all of this was after their beautiful ceremony at St. Micheal the Archangel Catholic Church!
We love Tommy, Ariel and their families. They were such a fun bunch and so kind to us. They hugged us and loved on January and I just like we were part of the family. There is nothing better or more satisfying to our hearts than that (other than pretty pictures). Thank you Turner and Coccairdi Families for being so beautiful (inside and out). Congratulations Tommy and Ariel!
