Will hearts Nicole | Nags Head Wedding

Nicole and Will we married this weekend in South Nags Head on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. They booked their entire wedding from Ohio and had never visited the OBX before! We have such pretty beaches and tons of locations for a destination wedding, who could resist?! They rented a huge newly finished house and had close friends and family down from Ohio and even Alaska! The weather had been so rainy all week, but cleared for a few hours so they were able to have their ceremony and reception all outside.

Nicole found her perfect ring back in December at an antique store in Cleveland. Will came back and bought it in January, but then close friends got engaged and he waited until May to propose! She couldn't believe it when he had the 1920's ring of her dreams!

We love when couples bring their doggies! Nicole's two pups never left her side while she was getting ready.

The beach in October is perfect! Most of the vacationers have left and there is just a bunch of seagulls and huge waves left, ....and maybe a teeny tiny Nor'easter or so.

Will was so sweet and emotional during the ceremony! Nicole was wiping HIS tears!

Since the bride is vegetarian and the groom vegan, They enlisted rockstar Amy Huggins Gaw of Outer Banks Epicurean to chef up some delicious veggie fare! She served up spicy blackbean burgers and fig ketchup, plus many other meatless courses for their family and friends. I had to educate some Ohioans on the importance of grits, it's definitely a southern thing.
