For some brides picking the perfect beach access can be a daunting task.  With so many great locations simply narrowing it down to a specific beach can be challenging.  However, for this bride selecting a site for her seaside ceremony was the easy part. Toni & Geoffrey #3 (Blog) Before Geoffrey even proposed Toni new exactly where she wanted to say “I do.”  Hidden in the residential section of Carolina Beach near the north end is Seahorse Lane.  With only four public parking spaces, this beach access is easy to miss and does not appear logistically sound for a wedding of 40+ people, but for Toni this was the ideal location.

Her walk down the aisle would also be a walk down memory lane.  The bride and her family enjoyed many summers at this very spot swimming in the ocean and building sandcastles on the shore.  For their daughter’s big day Toni’s parents were able to secure several homes at and around this access providing ample space for parking and a fun few days for family and friends to reconnect. I have a feeling this family will continue to make memories at Seahorse Lane for years to come.

Heather & Dave #1 (Blog)Although I enjoy getting to know brides from all over the U.S., there is something extra special about the local girls, especially ones who love Access #43 as much as I do.  Local brides understand our weatherman always predicts a 30% chance of rain on Saturdays and that it rarely rains enough to ruin their ceremony.  They usually introduce me to at least one great new wedding vendor and they are typically some of the most relaxed brides we encounter on wedding day.

Heather & Dave #2 (Blog)What was so special about this wedding (aside from the local bride) was the incorporation of so many important people into the couple’s big day.  Ensuring every family member had a special seat and that all their parents, grandparents, stepparents, and step-grandparents were included in the processional was a must for this family oriented couple.  I loved the Dave’s father served as best man and his stepfather was one of the groomsmen.  I also loved that Heather had her dad give her away and her stepfather perform the ceremony.  Yes, a wedding is technically a ceremony celebrating the joining of two people, but really it’s much more than that.  This couple took to heart the crucial role friends and family play in supporting their union.  For them, celebrating these special people was an integral part of the process.
