Who We Are
We are Dan and Kimmy (and our little gals, Ivey & Nora) We've been married since 2010 after dating long distance - like really long distance! Kimmy lived in North Africa and Dan lived in Spartanburg and we managed to continue to fall in love for the two years we were apart. We love Jesus, our sassy gals, cooking together, all things MAC, traveling together, photography, and of course, coffee! We also have the best dog ever, NOLA who was named after Kimmy's love for all things New Orleans.
and FINALLY After two long years apart, we're MARRIED!!
We were married on December 11, 2010 at Walker Hall, a beautiful event hall on the campus of the South Carolina School for the Deaf & Blind at 2:00pm. Following the short ceremony, we had a coffee and dessert bar and played board games with our friends and family. It was so much fun!!
We also had fun as the day approached. We did most of the planning and creating ourselves - including our invitations, programs, favors, and other special touches. We had a LOT of help from our family and friends though and couldn't have pulled it off without them! It made our day so much more special!
Hands down, our favorite part of the day was our "First Look". We decided to see each other before the ceremony which was perfect! We were able to catch our breath, steal a kiss or two, and pray together - which will go down forever as one of the sweetest moments of our lives! And Chris, our photographer, captured the moment so perfectly.
After a few hours of celebrating with our family and friends, we headed off for our honeymoon to Seattle, which was AMAZING!
We've added some pictures from our day to our photo gallery, so go check them out!
