Destination Wedding on the Outer Banks

We met Brittany and Jennifer at the Sanderling wedding Expo and have been looking forward to their fall wedding at the Sanderling Resort in Duck, NC.

The girls, and their girls, were getting ready in different rooms at the resort. They kept all of their outfit details a secret from each other.  Britt and Jen each had different looks for their pre-getting ready and their bridesmaids had different robes.

We tried a little jumping on the bed, but one fell off and, fortunately, did not bump their head.  Although, Brittany and Jen are both nurses in DC and most of the guests and bridal party are all nurses as well.

Brittany had a sweet tear streaming down as she watched her bride walk down the aisle. We had done a private first look earlier to settle Jennifer's nerves a little.

Brittany has the best laugh! It's a full, hearty laugh that lights up her whole face!

Most of Jen's family is Irish and took the long journey to the Outer Banks of NC. The couple incorporated a lot of Irish traditions into their wedding, vows and speeches. The couple tied the knot after exchanging rings, before their kiss.

We have a nor'easter brewing off the Atlantic, making the ocean rough, and the wind strong. It was nice to have the ceremony over the dunes to block the wind. Jennifer's dad surprised them with a bagpiper to play during cocktail hour. It was a nice accompaniment to the Irish accents floating around.

The couple and I, braved the storm and had a private beach to ourselves for a few portraits. Jen in her mermaid dress, and Brittany's whipping around in the wind.

Jen and Brittany danced  the night away to a live band, Six Stylz.  Matt, from the band, also played during the ceremony on the lawn.

We love getting to know a couple through their speeches. Brittany and Jen's family and friends did a great job at giving everyone a little snippet of their relationship and love.

The Sanderling has some of the best sunsets in the whole world. Even when it is overcast and cloudy, those colors shine through.
