From the photographer: “Kara and Eddie are two of the most fun, full-of-life, smart, and funniest couples we have the honor of working with. They are also head over heels in love and completely smitten with each other. From the moment, we as photographers, met them and heard there super fun and cute love story as well as the details they had planned for their wedding day, we knew we had to work with them.”Mr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. Adams
How they met: “Eddie was looking around on a friend’s Facebook page one day and seen Kara in a photo that his friend had posted. He knew then he had to meet her…Kara on the other was not sold on the idea that he was her type. After finally meeting at a get together at a mutual friend’s home, the two knew there was a spark.”Mr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. Adams
The proposal: “As time passed, the Kara and Eddie fell in love. It was then, Eddie was ready to pop the question! He purchased the perfect ring and like any excited groom-to-be would do, he started planning the perfect way to propose. Only the day he bought the ring, Kara called him on the way home from work and told him she had a bad day at work. As she walked in the door from work that evening, there was Eddie down on one knee. Of course, she said yes!”Mr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. Adams

“Eddie played college football however he did not play for his all time favorite team, the UNC Tarheels. Kara and Eddie decided to incorporate Eddie’s love for the Tarheels into their wedding reception location and decor. Their reception at The Blue Zone at Kenan Stadium on the UNC Chapel-Hill campus featured amazing views and access to the stadium. Forgoing a standard guest book at the reception, guest took turns signing messages on a Carolina Tarheels jersey and their names on a basketball. Standard table numbers were replaced past UNC Tarheel players and their jersey number and their cake was a 3D model of The Old Well, the cherished symbol of the University of North Carolina. The biggest surprise of the night was something that Kara and Eddie had been planning for their guest for over a year. During the garter removal when all the guest were focused on the couple, the beloved mascot of the Tarheels, Ramses, arrived! The joy on Kara & Eddie’s face as they saw the excitement of their guest was priceless.  Eddie then placed the garter on, what else but a Carolina football, and Ramses hiked the ball to him in which he threw to the single fellows. Guest were able to dance, pose for photos in the photo booth and more with their favorite mascot! The evening ended with a sparkler exit but not before each guest was able to pick up a mix CD of songs from Kara & Eddie’s relationship together as well as doggy treats for any guest with pups at & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. Adams
“This wedding was one to remember. Not only with tons of details, surprises and a fun couple but because of the love that is so undeniable between Kara & Eddie. When a man chooses to forget all plans to make a over the top proposal to see the love of his life smile and a bride creates an entire reception around her Groom’s favorite team, you know that the couple is simply meant to be.”Mr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. AdamsMr. & Mrs. Adams
