They share same faith, their officiant had the most beautiful words for their ceremony and it made it for a special one. The most loving touch: James wore his grandaddy's wedding ring.


The Reception:

After formal portraits on site and a little champagne toast, everyone headed to the Beaufort Hotel in Beaufort, NC where one of the banquet rooms was ready for them to celebrate a brunch after their wedding.


Before leaving them to celebrate with loved ones, I sneaked the newlyweds out to the canopy trees on Front Street, by the boat ramps and took a few romantic portraits, sweet Allie wanted a more organic feel for these... So, shoes off she said and so it was, followed by laughs and love!


Before our good byes, a little bottle of Rufino Rose for Allie + James to help them celebrate a bit more later on!


I love my couples... They deserve the best, what better than bubbly???
