Kerin + Dan wedding {by kate & meredith}

Kerin and Dan are a fun loving couple with one of the sweetest yellow labs I have ever met (Hi Ruckus!) When they were here at the studio to change clothes during their engagement session, he waited patiently for Kerin outside the bathroom door… so cute… you’ll get to see him below looking dapper.  Enough about the pup and on to the wedding!  We started the day at the historic City Hall downtown….

beautiful rings!

Okay, so this is SO cool… Kerin and Dan had each other’s rings engraved and then kept the engraving secret until after the wedding when they put them on!  Dan engraved into Kerin’s ring “May the 4th be with us!” (get it? their wedding was on May 4th?!?) and Kerin had “Do Not Remove” engraved into Dan’s!  What a fun idea!

this laugh brought to you by Kerin telling us the steel drum player was going to play “kiss the girl” (from the Little Mermaid) during the ceremony and one of the bridesmaids thought she meant “I kissed a girl” by Katy Perry… that would be a different vibe for a wedding!!
