Dan + Carissa…where do I begin?!

Our families grew up side-by-side, so I can honestly say that i’ve known these two for as long as I can remember! We all attended the same church, each of us having 6-8 kids, I think it’s safe to say we pretty much made up the population of RBC 😉 Each Labor Day weekend our families would go camping – favorite favorite favorite childhood memories. We attended a homeschool co-op group together + even played for the same sports teams..  So yes, we saw each other pretty often!

I’d have to say one of my favorites things about growing up with these families has been watching the way we have each matured and bloomed over the years. I have especially loved watching Dan and Carissa’s relationship blossom into something so sweet,  gentle and selfless. Their love for each other is such a precious thing and I was the happiest girl getting to experience their joy that radiated throughout their wedding day!!! Wishing you many happy years ahead! Congrats on tying the knot – Love you Kissa and Dan <3
