Outer Banks July 4th Week

Sanderling Resort Wedding

Kelsey and Brett got married on July 2nd at Sanderling Resort which looked gorgeous all decorated for the upcoming holiday!

They met at the bar where Brett worked, Kelsey said she had her eyes on him for months but it wasn't until her friend went on a date with his friend that they really met and from that day forward it's history.

They had a beautiful OBX day, slightly overcast with a breeze and no rain until the reception which made the outdoor deck perfect for their first dances with all the reflections!

One guest even had on patriotic sunglasses.

They had their Outer Banks wedding on the beach at the North side of Sanderling Resort.

Sugarsnap Events did a phenomenal job on their decor, bright and beachy - the air plants were our favorites! Their invitation was so pretty, the texture, color and watercolor feel made me want to be at their wedding asap!

Kelsey's veil was oh so pretty, I can't imagine how she felt walking down the steps to the perfect waves, gentle breeze, the love of her life and all of her friends and family.  It's an amazing time to have everyone you and your husband love all together in one place. Rev. Jay Bowman led an intimate ceremony and told stories about the couple that made it seem that he had known them for years.

Someone made a perfect sandcastle that morning before they said "I Do." Love how Candace incorporated it.

Kelsey and Brett wrote their own vows which were so sweet.

The flower petals at the end were the perfect touch!

Not only do the Sanderling umbrellas make a beautiful backdrop, they helped keep all the fellas cool on the warm July day!

They had their reception inside at the Event House and their dancing outside on the deck overlooking the fire pit.  They even provided smores for everyone in the tootest bags.

Their buffet consisted of shrimp and grits, a Mac and Cheese bar, pork belly sliders, bacon, beef tenderloin, brie cheese, succotash... the list goes on and on!

And we love how Sanderling leaves a plate of their appetizers that were served at cocktail hour on the couples table so they get to sample some of all the food they worked so hard to choose!

The shower came right after dinner and just before their first dances, it was perfect timing!

Without the rain we wouldn't have had the beautimus reflections!

The fire pit is always a hit and not only for the kiddos! Guests picked up their bag of smores inside and headed outside to find a roasting stick waiting for them.
