Nick & Lora | July 6, 2013

30 Aug

Lora & Nick #3(Blog) Who says the ceremony Lora & Nick #2(Blog)has to come first? By scheduling their ceremony after dinner this couple maximized time with their guests and enjoyed a cool, crowd free wedding on one of the busiest beach weekends of the year. Around 7:30pm, guests were invited down to the beach while the bride and groom slipped away for a quick wardrobe change. Lora, escorted by her brother, carried a bouquet made of shells she and Nick found on various beach vacations during their courtship. Lora & Nick #1(Blog)At the end of the aisle Nick waited nervously for a first look at his bride in her dress. Following the first kiss, the couple and their guests continued the celebration at the Oceanic with champagne and wedding cake. It was truly a unique and memorable wedding for a fun and creative couple.

Jenna & James(Blog)Jenna & James#3(Blog)How do you have a romantic oceanfront ceremony on one of the busiest beach weekends of the year? Opt for a 9:00am wedding and have the beach virtually to yourself. Jenna’s extended family have been vacationing in Carolina Beach almost every July for the past 60 years and she is kin to the owners of Blackburn Brothers Seafood, one of the best fresh fish markets on the east coast. Therefore it seemed only natural that she would choose to get Jenna & James #2(Blog) married on Carolina Beach during the annual family vacation. This fun loving couple kept us smiling all morning long, with sweet exchanges throughout the ceremony and a dramatic dip following the first kiss.

Tammy & Roy | July 5, 2013

Tammy & Roy(Blog)Tammy & Roy 2(Blog)The sun was out in full force for Tammy and Roy’s 12pm wedding so guests took full advantage of our bottle water and parasols (complementary with every outdoor package). It is always fun to set-up in front of a beach house where the wedding party is staying. We usually have a few family members come down to observe the process and share stories about the bride and groom or tell us about their own wedding. The sweetest part of this ceremony was certainly the processional. The bride and groom shared a tender “first look”, Tammy gazing down from the top of the stairs Tammy & Roy 3(Blog)and Roy looking up from the pavilion, but instead of Roy waiting for his bride to arrive, he met her in the middle of the the aisle and they walked together. As a tribute to her late father, the bride placed a cheery picture of her dad in a beach chair frame on the sand ceremony table.
