We met Drew and Megan earlier this week for their engagement session at the Whalehead Club in Corolla, NC.  The couple chose to do a destination wedding on the Outer Banks, and planned the whole wedding from their home in Maryland.

Brooke met with the bride and all her gals at their beach cottage in Corolla, Candace went with the boys at their suite at the Sanderling Resort in Duck.

Megan had a gorgeous dress!  Beaded and flowy, perfect for a beach wedding!  All her bridesmaid had different dresses, in shades of blue.  Bombshell's had all the ladies looking fantastic!

The ceremony was set up on the event lawn. Just a dune over from the Atlantic, but a completely different look. The Flower Field decorated the ceremony site and made it feel secluded and like an enchanted woodland. Lots of wood cuttings, moss, lanterns and dream catchers to adorn the aisle and archway.

The couple wanted to have a private first look. Drew knew he was going to be an emotional mess when he saw Meg for the first time!

The couple had a sweet and funny toasts by their siblings.  Drew's brother told about one of their trips to the Outer Banks as children, where Drew named and took a frog home.  The frog was later found pinned to the wall behind a poster decades later.  Mother of the Groom had the best expression when listening to that story!

Emotional first dances for everyone! I even got teary eyed when the Mother of the Groom had her best friend read a letter because she knew she couldn't get through it.

Carolina Cupcakery had a heavenly display of assorted cupcakes and a small wedding cake for the couple to cut.  The little ones always have a hard time resisting the cupcake temptation!

We had a gorgeous sunset over the sound!  The couple had a cigar bar set out on the gazebo with pillows and lighting for guests to enjoy the beautiful September evening.
