Karis + Doug | May 24, 2017
Karis and Doug met when Doug was her property manager and a relationship blossomed over several incidents with her washing machine. Depending on who you ask the washing machine kept breaking / Karis kept breaking it! After a romantic proposal in their new home together, it was no surprise that their Charlotte wedding was going to be filled with incredibly sweet and personal moments. Their ceremony was nothing short of stunning, and two very special guests took a trip down the aisle as well: their dogs!
Karis’ and Doug’s reception was unique in so many ways. For starters, their first dance as husband and wife started off just as you would expect – but about halfway through the music skipped. Guests looked around to see if a possible music malfunction was to blame, but instead discovered the whole thing was planned! The familiar chorus of Uptown Funk came thundering out of the speakers as Karis and Doug broke out into a choreographed dance. Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances soon followed, where Doug and his mom also tricked the guests by busting out the Hokey Pokey halfway through their dance (if you didn’t guess from the colors, Doug is a huge Virginia Tech fan!). It was clear that these fun and funky twists to wedding traditions were well received by all.
As the night continued, the newlyweds went to cut the cake, except instead of cake – they had an amazing array of pies for guests to try. After everyone had their share of pie, the dance party continued late into the night with guests decked out in glow sticks from head to toe! It was the perfect day for such a sweet and unique couple.
Congratulations the new Mr. and Mrs. Roper!
