Andrea & Jerad | The Celebration Cottage | Atlantic Beach, NC | Emerald Isle Wedding Photographe

Our couples are nothing but extraordinary - I believe, that every wedding is different and all couples are different - They all share one common thing tho, LOVE! After meeting Jerad and Andrea, we just knew that little 'I-have-to-work-with-them' emotion kicked in and so it was - We planned our times for engagement session and we had the chance to spend time with both of them - Andrea is sweet and goes with the flow - Jerad, is definitely her knight in shining armor... They both share a a great affinity for similar things and are so easy going, there were no surprises that their wedding day would have been anything but fun and easy-flowing.

On their day - We started really early - The couple had planned a small and truly intimate ceremony by the altar at Saint Egberts Church in Morehead City, NC - Only in the company of their parents, sister, grooms best friend and his grandmother, who played the piano while we had nuptials were present.

After their 'I Dos' the bride headed to breakfast with the girls and then to see Lee at Morehair Salon in the waterfront area - So that hair and make up could be done... before heading to their venue to start other preparations. Our groom, headed to the beach to spend time with his groomsmen who traveled from Iowa and family before meeting Andrea at Celebration Cottage in Atlantic Beach, NC.

We spent time with groom and his groomsmen at their beach home as they got ready - It was great fun, before heading to the venue to spend time with Andrea, her mother and bridesmaids.

Needless to say, everything was perfect - Zena with Knot A Second Thought - who made sure all was perfect - it was so great to work with this amazing event coordinator - Zena and her team made sure everything was effortless and flawless, making the day for the couple the most perfect celebration as they envisioned. As it should always be! Enjoy our views from this fun wedding - We sure have loved working and getting to know Andrea and Jerad, congratulations to this loving couple and we wish them the best for their future!
