Mike & Monica met as kids, living only streets away from each other. Apparently Monica's sister thought that she would try to "hook them up" but had no idea that Monica already had a crush on Mike. As the story goes, Monica would disappear from her house for hours at a time until one day her dad drove around the neighborhood looking for her. There she was, walking the dog with Mike. The rest is... well this IS a wedding blog!... the rest is sweet history.

Monica's mom Maria helped so much with the planning of the wedding since Monica and Mike live in North Carolina. She was so organized... it made our job easy!
And Monica herself... just absolutely the sweetest!
And here is Mike, the groom! Mr. GQ himself!
He rocks the serious look...
but also has that contagious smile!

Thankfully it really didn't rain while we were doing pictures... such a blessing!
