Every couple dreams of setting up two best friends, but it doesn't usually work out as easily and magically as it did for Josh and I. As I've mentioned on this blog before, we had success setting up two very dear friends (a bridesmaid and groomsman) from our wedding almost five years ago. This past weekend Kathryn and Chris got married in Charlotte. We couldn't be more thrilled for them and had the best weekend with so many friends and family.
Get ready for lots of pics...sadly, most are iPhone pics.

Charles came Thursday and was quite the hit with the young ladies!

Sister and niece of bride
Niece and nephew of the bride. Shortly after this photo her nephew, Dylan, practiced walking down the aisle and confessed the whole way down, "I don't want to be the ring boy anymore!" He couldn't be coaxed into doing it on the big day, so he's now known as the ring bearer dropout. What a cutie!
Parents of the bride
Kathryn had a grooms cake made to represent days at Cape Lookout. Those are some of our absolute favorite memories with the couple and we look forward to going on the boat with the Hamrick family all year. Absolute perfect days!
