Doug and I worked with a wonderful couple this past fall at The Sanderling. I like to ask our couples how they met. They had such a wonderful story so I asked Kelly to write something up for me.

From Kelly:
Dusty and I were set up by 2 mutual friends.  My boss and one of Dusty’s co-workers thought we would hit it off. Neither one of us happened to be dating anyone at the time so they gave us each others numbers and as they say the rest is history.  After 3 years of dating  we found ourselves saying “I do” in the outer banks 🙂

The day Dusty proposed things didn’t go quite as planned, but of course I had no idea what was coming.
February 13th, 2014 we were “supposed” to head to work, Dusty was going to surprise me with roses and candles when I came home from work and pop the question.  We were then going to go out for drinks to celebrate and our families were all going to be a restaurant near our house where they were going to surprise me!!

However, mother nature had a different plan!!
The night before a huge snowstorm hit us and pretty much shut everything down for the day of the 13th.
Our families were not able to travel due to the weather, so we woke up to a beautiful winter wonderland on February 13th. Neither one of us had to go to work so we bundled up and went out to shovel for a good 2 hours.
We came in around 10 a.m. all sweaty and cold from working hard.  I decided to start baking (which I never do). He asked me to come and sit with him on the couch and said he wanted to give me my Valentine’s day gift early.
Panic set in since we had both said we were not doing gifts for Valentine’s Day!!
Every time I went in and sat down, the timer for the muffins I as baking went off.  I had to re-set it 5 times for 2 more minutes and here the poor guy was trying to ask to marry him.  Haha
Finally I sat on the couch and at the same time he reached in between the couch cushions and pulled out a little black box.  I was expecting earrings or a bracelet.
Sure enough as I opened the box he got down on one knee in front of me and asked me to marry him.
After the shock wore off we ended up spending the day snowed in, calling all of our friends and family. Our neighbors had us over for champagne and we walked in town and any friends that were able to meet us did.  It was the perfect day and I wouldn’t have changed it for anything!! Now every time it snows it reminds of the day we got engaged 🙂

Kelly & Dusty were married at Corolla Chapel by Rev. Jay Bowman. Their Cocktail hour was held on the Event Lawn & their reception took place at The Pavilion at The Sanderling in Duck, NC. The gorgeous decor and flowers were done by Dorothy Heath at Bells & Whistles. The romantic portraits were taken at Whalehead and the sunset shots were taken behind the Pavilion on the sound.

I had the pleasure of working with Heather Trentzsch from Heather Events again this year. We got to work together on such an amazingly beautiful wedding with an awesome couple. Heather was not only the planner but is a good friend with Jaclyn & Allan. I asked Heather to submit some information for our blog and she was able to provide all of this wonderful information.

Heather wrote:

I met Jaclyn & Allan on the docks of Pirate’s Cove Marina where they too, met, and fell for each other in 2009.  Jaclyn worked at Mimi’s Tiki Hut & Allan was the First Mate on the charter boat, Maruader.  We became great friends and it has been an honor to walk alongside them during their journey to be married, as they were there for my own wedding to my husband, Joey, the Best Man, in 2012.

Jaclyn and Allan Hall were married October 4, 2014 at The Pavilion at Pirate’s Cove Marina.  Both Bride and Groom were able to get ready in different homes in the beautiful Pirate’s Cove Community, which also provided Jaclyn the opportunity to depart from her Getting Ready Location on Ballast Point by boat and arrive at The Pavilion at Pirate’s Cove Marina.  Her Uncle’s vessel, “Full Circle”, was a perfect, unique entrance that wowed all of the guests.  The Vintage-Chic style of their wedding decor featuring soft pastel florals and natural greenery throughout the venue gave an organic & rustic vibe all of the guests could enjoy.  From window panes suspended from the rafters covered in Greenery, Mason Jars & Floral arrangements, to all of her individually thrifted Hurricane Oil Lamps, lace overlays, crates and Ball Jars, Jaclyn & Allan’s reception was one you could not forget.  A Cigar & Bourbon Bar was a great highlight to pair with the Richmond-based band Proverbial, who had all of the guests on the dance floor throughout the evening.  Jaclyn and Allan’s Wedding Day was filled with personal touches by family, friends, local vendors and more.

We were blessed to have worked with this couple doing their engagement photos before their big day. Andy & Liz had a gorgeous wedding at The Sanderling in Duck,NC.

Here are some words from the bride:

“Three years ago we met through friends and had an instant connection. We knew we had something special the first night that we spoke. We started talking and laughing together and have been inseparable ever since.

For my Birthday, Andy planned a vacation to Canada to see Niagara Falls and Toronto. He was nervously carrying around the ring the entire trip waiting for the perfect time to pop the question. Finally, on our last night while in Toronto he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.

Planning the wedding has been really exciting for the both of us. We both knew we wanted a beach wedding, something that could be a vacation for our family and friends. The Outer Banks is the perfect low key beach destination that we love. Our family and friends can enjoy a long weekend playing on the beach and the great activities of OBX while celebrating our wedding and our future life together. We picked the Sanderling Resort as our venue because of the beautiful ocean front setting. We are planning an intimate classic wedding in navy and various shades of pink. The ceremony will be held on the beach while the reception is on an open deck overlooking the ocean. We couldn’t be more excited to share our big day with the family and friends we love the most.
