Oh you guys this fall wedding season is literally in full swing and it’s going to be amazing! However I can’t think of a more beautiful way to have finished out the summer wedding season then shooting Heather + Ryan’s mint beach wedding at Courtyard Marriott in Carolina Beach, NC! How we managed to have no rain after a consistent forecast of an 80% chance of rain, I’ll never know. But I can say that there wasn’t a person in attendance or vendor that wasn’t sad that it didn’t rain! LOL
Heather + Ryan are one of the most sweetest and happiest couples that I have worked with! There wasn’t a time throughout the day that they weren’t smiling, laughing and loving on others. This was their special day, yet they made sure that their friends and family were having the best time. The one special guest in attendance though was their sweet furbaby Bruce! I loved how he laid in the living room and watched as Heather got dressed. He made his very own grand debut when he walked down the aisle with his very own matching bowtie. Everyone giggled when Heather and Ryan shared about the love that they have for their “first child”. And if you thought the newlyweds had the sweetest ceremony recessionals, let me just tell you that it was made perfect when Bruce ran after them, leaping and rolling around in Ryan’s arms! It was the cutest thing ever!
After we spent a little time on the beach for their romantic portraits we headed back to join the party! And what a party it was! It was one of the most happening receptions this year! Everyone was having the best time dancing around the oh so popular go-pro. I just loved watching Heather and Ryan as they danced with the flower girl and every other little one that made it out to the dance floor. My most favorite part of the reception is when they danced along with their parents and grandparents. As I watched Heather’s grandparents dance I couldn’t help but think about my own grandparents and how much my granny loved to dance! It was at our weddings that she would have her chance to get out there. So what a blessing it was to witness that on Heather and Ryan’s day!
Thank you Heather + Ryan for choosing me to be apart of your wedding day! May you have many wonderful and happy years together!
