The day started off with heavy rain showers. Doug headed to the guys house in the Tuckahoe neighborhood of Duck,NC. I met up with the bride and bridesmaids at the event home in Kill Devil Hills. Despite the wet weather everyones spirits were high.

As we neared the end of photographing everyone getting ready the rain stopped. We were able to get the ceremony in before it started to drizzle again. We also got some family portraits in on the beach before the rain got heavy again. We took some pictures in the cabana with the bridal party and as we finished them up we got another break in the rain. We were able to sneak out to the beach again to get some gorgeous romantic photos with Sydney and Stefan.

The rain stopped at the beginning of the reception and the planners were able to set up the tables and chairs for the reception. The rest of the night was perfect and beautiful. The couple ended the night jumping in the pool with their bridal party!

Not all weddings work the way we want them to. Sometimes there is rain, or heat, wind, or some other problem that adds difficulty to our day. It is what you do with it that makes your day good or bad. We worked with Stefani and Craig this spring for their wedding. Despite the rain, their day was absolutely perfect! They may not have had sunshine but the happiness from the couple and their friends and family made up for the rain. I am so glad we got to work with this couple on such a wonderful, special and perfect day!

Eric and Ashley had a beautiful summer wedding. They were married on the beaches of Kitty Hawk next to the Kitty Hawk Pierhouse- Hilton Garden Inn. Doug and I make an awesome photography team! Doug was able to work with the groom and his men while I was able to have fun photographing the ladies. Most of the portraits were done before the ceremony allowing the couple to get to the party after just a few more romantic pictures. Doug covered cocktail hour while I spent more time with Eric and Ashley. Everyone was so fun to work with from the couple to their friends and family and all the vendors.

We were a part of Ashlyn and Nicks intimate wedding off of the Chicahauk beach access in Southern Shores, NC. We had a wonderful morning wedding. We were so thankful for the clouds that kept the ceremony and portraits nice and cool. We were also thankful that the rain had past. The sun did come out towards the end and it wound up being a gorgeous day!

It was the perfect day. We started our day with a first look of the bride and groom on the docks by the salon. Stephen got to see his stunning bride before the big day went into full swing. As I took pictures of the bride and groom with their bridal party and some romantic pictures on the dock Doug was able to get some beautiful images of the reception and ceremony site. It is always good to make sure that everything is already set up before your photographer arrives. This is so important if you want pictures of the room as well as the tables and details. It is also important that the ceremony site be set up  before guests start arriving if want to make sure your photographer gets this important shot.
After the portraits the bridal party freshens up while we headed to the ceremony site to get pictures of the guests arriving. After the ceremony we headed to the beach for family photos and a few more bridal party and romantic shots while Doug photographed the cocktail hour details and guests. After our session on the beach we walked over to a little dock to the south of the Sanderling where our couple and bridal party boarded a boat to get to the gazebo on the sound side. It allowed the bride and groom to enter from the sound side into the pavilion for their introductions.The rest of the night was topped off with great food, fun and a lot of dancing!

Our bride shared some information about their special day. See what she wrote.

I am from Pittsburgh, PA and Stephen is from Topsail Island, NC.  We are currently living in Alexandria, Va.
Stephen works for PEPCO Electrical Company and I work for the federal government.
We met at a local establishment in San Francisco where we used to live.  Stephen asked me to marry him on top of the Marin Headlands overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge near where we lived.  It is a beautiful view of the city.
We chose the Outer Banks for our wedding because Stephen is from North Carolina and loves the beach and I visited the Outer Banks a few years back and really enjoyed it there.
Our colors were tan, violet, mint, and yellow. I got my dress at a small dress boutique in Walnut Creek, CA.
My favorite part of the day was seeing how happy my parents were and spending time with friends and family.
It was easy to plan a destination wedding.  The hardest part was the hotel and sleep accommodations for guests.  Destination weddings can get very pricey and you typically need to book rooms in advance which most people don’t like to do.
The best part of a destination wedding is that I got to be at the beach for an entire week.  The wedding goes by so fast, so it was great to get a beach house with my bridesmaids and spend time with them before and after the wedding.
I also took pictures with the bridal party and had a “first look” before the wedding which I liked because it helped move things along between the wedding and reception.  Our dinner service was served early which I also think is important because it allows more time for dancing.  It was also very convenient that you could just walk from the ceremony to the reception.
I wouldn’t have changed anything about our wedding day.
Dana & Stephen
