Wedding vibes to Rachel and Logan were truly real! They had a beautiful ceremony at Neuse Breeze in August - they were the winners of the giveaway for a free wedding, that was offered to couples who lost so much in their wedding planning due to Florence last fall...
About 100+ guests showed to celebrate their day - Logan a firefighter for Morehead City Fire Department, and Rachel were one of the many affected by one of the worst hurricanes to have hit Eastern, NC in 2018.
Seeing them - They are two people who have a zest for life and love to have fun - Plain and simple - their wedding was not short of laughs and jokes!
The groomsmen and the groom are so close, like a brotherhood... and they pick on each-other as such! It was so much fun to watch them be them!
Good friends reuniting celebrating and making memories! They sang, they danced, they raised the roof [ metaphorically speaking] Seriously good times! Wedding vendors collaborated for this give-away along with Neuse Breeze, Marianne and her team were amazing -[ We just love themand their venue so much!] They were so special in providing all the accomodations the occasion called for. Colors were ivory, and some navy's and lots of beautiful greenery with ivory roses! Among the vendors who participated: Dawn the bartender for Promised Hearts Wedding Planning & Officiating, Kim Cake, Blush Boutique, Generations Mobile DJ Service, Susan from Hair Class Hairstyling and the whole Neuse Breeze - Wedding and Event Venue staff
Our couple, exchanged love letters and these were such a great part of their day...
Rachel, wanted a first look with her dad and it was a very sweet moment... And she even had a BridesMan - Cody!
Logan and Rachel had planned for a first look... The weather had other plans, it was pouring and so their first look was experienced upstairs in the guest house and it was so extraordinary - just the two of them [ and me - photographing it] they had their solo moment after their encounter was captured - Our groom shed one or two tears...
Once the ceremony was about to start the rain stopped. - Logan still had an element of surprise when our bride walked down the aisle and up to him... We love seeing this! First dances - by the fireplace outside - Toasts by best man and Maid of honor were truly meaningful - so much history amongst friends! Catering was provided by Smithfield - It was a great shindig indeed!
No sparkler exit was planned, because instead they wanted a last dance and then have all friends sent them off to their honeymoon!
Congratulations Mr + Mrs Hardy!!!!
