Chris + Dana | married

We have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Chris + Dana, and have been honored to be a part of documenting the legacy of each of their families. I put it in those terms because we were privileged to photograph the weddings of the groom’s sister, and also the wedding of the bride’s sister in the past few years! It was a fun day, and we had a great time re-connecting with ALL of the families!

Here are Chris + Dana, in their own words:

Where did you meet your fiancé?

We have known each other almost our whole lives. Dana moved to our neighborhood when she was 8 years old. We spent lots of time together running around with neighborhood friends. We met as adults when we were reintroduced by mutual friends around 2004.

Was it love at first sight?

We both agree that it wasn’t “love” at first sight, but there were certain qualities about each other that drew us to each other.

How would you describe your wedding day style?

Classic elegance with a vintage feel.

Dream travel destination?

Everywhere we have never been

Favorite thing about the South?

Our favorite part of the south are the people and the food.

What are two of your favorite qualities about each other?

Dana: My favorite qualities of Chris is that he is intelligent and outgoing.
Chris: Qualities of Dana that are my favorite are her honesty and her drive to be successful.
