Brett hearts Tammy | Sanderling

Tammy and Brett were married at the Sanderling in Duck this Thursday. We've been having a bunch of rain this May in NC, and beach ceremonies make us nervous! Driving to Duck, I had my windshield wipers on the entire way! Even while Tammy was getting her hair and make-up done in the spa -it was still raining! The internet gave ceremony time a 59% chance of rain, but the couple held off calling it, and the sun came out!! Well, not necessarily the sun, but the rain went away! Not a drop the entire ceremony. It was windy, but gorgeous!

Tammy had gorgeous lace shoes! In fact, she had the lace theme throughout her wedding. Her grandmas handkerchief was safely tucked away in the top of her dress during the ceremony.


Tammy did a few last minute touch ups to her hair, making sure that it was held super tight for the strong beach wind. Mom, sis, and Tammy's niece Taylor helped her slide into the dress and add finishing touches.


Gorgeous! Tammy was beaming on the beach looking at her sugarbutt! Brett was tearing up before he even made it on the sand! These two met in high school, and have been madly in love ever since!

An (almost) always barefooted Rev. Jay Bowman performed the ceremony. Jay had everyone bow their heads and pray, Brett never took his eyes off Tammy!


After the ceremony, the couple had their sweet dog Marley joined them on the beach. She did her own thing during our pictures.


This was a very intimate wedding with only close family in attendance. The Sanderling and Sugar Snap Events put just as much care and detail into a 10 person wedding as a 200 person wedding!


Quiet couple time in the gazebo overlooking the sound.


The pavilion was gorgeous! Colors, flowers and candles! Brett and Tammy had a few moments alone before guests arrived and they could view their reception space.


Thanks so much for having us capture your day!!! ~Candace
