Carissa and Craig | Southpointe Golf Club Wedding

“It’s just another day.  It’s just another day…” Carissa responds to me after we enter her getting ready room and I ask her how she’s feeling on her wedding day.  Obviously, it really wasn’t just another day, it was the most fantastic day of her life and she absolutely knew it, but by saying these words, she was trying to remain in a zen-like state so she could manage the utter excitement that she felt that day!  Pretty smart tactic, if you ask me.  (I actually used this tactic the week following her wedding when I was super anxious about something that I can’t even remember what… and it really helped to calm me!)

Like I said though, Carissa knew just how fantastic this day was going to be, and you could tell she couldn’t wait to speed down that aisle and marry the love of her life.  She was glowing from the start to the finish that day, and you could tell how happy Craig was, too, behind his gentle and calm demeanor. Craig truly makes Carissa’s eyes sparkle- they have from the very day she met him at the age of 16- and all of these years later, the love and romance is just as perfect and strong as it was from day one.  It is truly amazing and inspiring to hear the back story of a couple who meet at a young age, knew instantly that they would marry each other, and then experience them carry through with this promise with flying colors.  There are true soul mates in this world.  Carissa and Craig are a prime example.

Take a look to see what I mean…
