amy-chris-3-blogIt’s easy to become all consumed with trivial details in the quest for a perfect wedding day.  Yes getting married is a huge deal and it should be a wonderful experience.  However, what makes it perfect isn’t food and flowers, but special people and fleeting moments.  The ability to be present and really appreciate that shared time with loved ones is what makes the wedding experience truly spectacular.  However, it’s a hard thing to do and I am always surprised when I see it happen.

The days leading up to this wedding were amy-chris-2-blogfilled with love as this bride and groom stocked every bedroom at the ocean front house with special treats for honored guests.  Handmade signs denoting each couple’s room framed the doors.  About an hour before the ceremony was set to begin the groom headed to the living room greeting his guests with warm hugs and a cold beers.  We started a bit late due to a slight mishap with the cake, but some creative friends rallied to the occasion to the sweet sound of the bride’s praises.  Cocktail hour was also a bit delayed due to extended well wishes and extra photo time will all attendees, but the bride and groom didn’t seem to mind.  After all, how often are you surround by so many special people in your life?

Monica & Chanze | April 12, 2014

Monica & Chanze #1(Blog) Ah the beach house wedding! Certainly one of the best venues for coastal brides looking to get married on Topsail, Oak Island, Ocean Isle or Holden Beach. Providing a fun alternative to the traditional reception hall, beach house weddings Monica & Chanze #3( Blog) have become increasing popular over the past few years as more and more brides search out destination locations where everyone travels.

Monica’s pick, Pirates Playground (105 Bay Court) is fast becoming a favorite. This was our third wedding at the Bay Court access and I can certainly see why it’s so popular. Aside from being huge (9BR/8BA) with easy access to the beach, this house has spacious rooftop deck perfect for a sunset reception. The couple opted for a 3pm wedding so they would have plenty of time to finish all their Monica & Chance #2 (Blog)beach pictures and not miss a minute of that beautiful roof top sunset.

Most memorable moment of the ceremony certainly had to be the “Rice Krispy Send Off.” Following the bride’s recessional, guests were given cups of the dry cereal and instructed to form two lines, one on either side of the aisle. Cheers and laughter could be heard down the beach as guests showered the couple with Rice Krispies.

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.

Brenna & Alex (Blog)Brenna & Alex 2 (Blog)Brenna and Alex selected a public access at Surf City Beach (near Tiffany’s Motel) for their seaside nuptials. Brenna & & Alex (Blog)It was a beautiful location, but definitely a tide sensitive area. In order to accommodate the couple’s 120+ guests and keep everyone dry, we opted for longer rows arranged in a semicircle. The layout worked really well and definitely looked cool from the top of the stairs.
One of the most memorable moments of the wedding was the sand ceremony. As the bride and groom poured their separate sands into the common vase (symbolizing the joining of their two separate lives into one) the maid of honor and best man played guitars and sang A Thousand Years by Christina Perry. It was such a sweet moment and certainly something the bride and groom will remember for many years to come.

IMG_0442blogMeredith and Doug introduced me to a new vendorIMG_0395 which I think is worth mentioning to any bride considering a Topsail Beach wedding. The St. Regis Resort offers condo style one, two and three bedroom suites with many amenities. On the very top of the center building is The Atlantis Restaurant, an ocean front venue which lends itself well to wedding receptions. You can actually see IMG_0402-blogBest of all, even at high tide there is plenty of beachfront (which is not the case at many other locations on Topsail Island).

Leslie & Andy | September 23, 2012

The site for Leslie and Andy nuptials was in front of one of the most amazing beach houses I’ve ever seen.  The wedding was followed by  a poolside reception courtesy of Kickstand Events and included an illuminated dance floor constructed over the pool.  Everything about this wedding was incredible but what made it extra special was the history that the couple shared.


Shortly after being diagnosed with a critical illness Andy proposed to his bride and told Reverend Lowe that when he recovered he wanted Lowe to officiate the wedding.  Two years later, a healthy Andy got his wish.

This wedding was a beautiful celebration for so many reasons.
