Tess + Zack | Intimate Wedding | Emerald Isle, NC | Destination Weddings | Allie Miller Weddings.

Sunday was magical [ I love to say that for every wedding, because it is true! ]

Truth is that all details were carefully planned by bride and her planner, Krystal with A Seaside Weddings and Events. Tones used were light corals, blush pinks with accents of green and paprika [ hexadecimal color code #91504d ] it is a tone of red, you will see in the images the beautiful contrast against the coastal colors of the Crystal Coast.

Our bride wore this lovely PRESCOTT - Ivory over Chantilly lace V-neck gown with scalloped lace details wedding gown designed by Allison Webb NYC Groom wore Stockport Wool Linen Light Blue Suit tailored suit by Indochino in green with the inside liner in tropical patterns.

Tess shared a first look with dad and followed by Zack. Happy tears and big smiles shared

Zack had his brother and 2 best friends as groomsmen and Tess had her two sisters, sister in law and her best friend by her side at the altar.

Ceremony was officiated by Tess's best friend who traveled from Chicago to be there for Tess in her special day.

Her Vows:

"To the man who literally horrified me with the amount of ketchup he used on the sliders during our first date…

My lovie

You make my life happier and brighter every day. You make me smile every time you walk into a room. You love me for who I am, flaws and all and I couldn’t ask for more.

I always want to try to better than the day before and I will never stop trying to be the woman you see in me.

I promise to make my emotional health my priority and show up even when I’m not in the mood.

I promise to be accountable and not blame you or try to change you. I will encourage you to continue to grow as an individual as we work towards our mutual goals.

I want to be the kind of wife that is you partner in everything.

I promise to hold onto this day when times are tough knowing I found a man that will push me to be my absolute best. We will have good times and bad, sickness and health and we will get through it all together.

I promise to tell you I don’t care where we go out to eat but when you choose the restaurant it will always be the wrong one. And I promise that when I ask for one bite of ice cream that I really mean two.

I promise to give you honesty trust and commitment but most of all and above anything else I will love you unconditionally and I will cherish you each day until my last.

His Words:

"Wow, we’re finally here and it’s finally time. Learning with you, growing with you, cooking with you, adventuring with you, and even pouting with you.

It doesn’t matter what we’re doing, but you bring a genuine light to my life. And on rare occasions, that light may be more of a dumpster fire, but much more often, it’s a warm, cuddly, early fall camp fire.

Where it’s a tiny bit cold, but your company and companionship bring all the warmth. And with that, comes an abundance of happiness.

You are the most caring, selfless, thoughtful, and beautiful person I’ve ever met, and whereas it may have been your outer beauty that reeled me in, those characteristics are what make me more attracted to you each and every day.

No matter what comes our way, I’ll always be there to dice your onions, mince your garlic, and cook you delicious meals, please just don’t make me put the food away.

I dedicate my love, devotion, and cooking skills to you forever and ever. I can’t help but to feel so incredibly lucky and proud to be able to call you my wife.

You’re my favorite and I love you for eternity."

After the I Dos, and first kiss we had a blast capturing all the family formals after the ceremony, and then a sweet introduction for the Mr. and Mrs., followed by first dances, blessing, dinner - Sunset photos and sugar rush and dancing!

The meals were prepared by Chef Rachel Sapp with Seaside Creation Catering - Flank Steak with home-made chimichurri, golden potatoes, medley of delicious vegetables - along with fish and chicken as additional part of the entrées.
