In my bride's words:
"We have been extremely lucky to have so many people impact our lives - from our parents, siblings and extended family, to our closest friends - we would not be here without each and and every one of you.
Some of our best and most treasured memories together have taken place on the beautiful coast of North Carolina. We could not imagine a better place to celebrate as we embark on this next chapter of our lives together in marriage."
Our couple had to postpone their nuptials a whole year - Why? Covid!!!!
Kelly and Brad a beautiful story 12 years in the making - Kelly has a heart of gold, her career as an Oncology Nurse is fitting to her personality and loving nature. In the time that we worked together for the past 9 months, Kelly has been one of those extraordinary people ---- Then again, my brides excel at being utterly amazing - ahem....
There has not been a deadline, a detail or a story we have not shared during the planning. Kelly and Brad had me at their Rehearsal Dinner [ BLOG COMING ] the day before their wedding - and it was a perfect chance to meet all the wedding gang - her 3 sisters, their families as well as all the parents, uncles and some of their closest friends who made the day more special.
Saturday, provided the perfect weather for their wedding - We had the honor to work alongside our friends Ashlyn and JD - with 'When Two Become ONE' - I cannot wait to post their teaser video -
Preparation time before the wedding - Make up and hair at the bridal home - First look with daddy... Her grandmother's handkerchief in the bouquet - Her grandparents pictures adorned her bouquet, her color in the blush side - soft, romantic tones. Classic beauty. After the ceremony we captured our customary formals and portraits - Guests headed over to the reception area where they were greeted by tropical drinks, delicious horderves and the sounds of steel drums - A trolley took charge of all the transportation needs for the day -
After the dances, and toasts - We had a beautiful canvas at Sunset along the Winding River in Bolivia, NC - It was pure romance...
Their day, we all intimate, still a great party - lots of dancing - great food, and not cake at this wedding but Ice Cream from their favorite place in town. -
Our couple chose to have no exit, as they didn't want to leave their party site or end their time together with friends at a given time... We all agreed to have some portraits of them two enjoying their ice cream under the twinkle lights outside in the patio by themselves!
Boys before the wedding ... Enjoying the water!
