christie + ryan // wedding . wilmington nc

Christie & Ryan got married in Wilmington recently & we were so glad they asked us to be a part of their day. Christie is a bride with undeniably good taste, so we were very excited to see what beautiful details she had in store for us on the wedding day. Between Christie & her fabulous list of vendors, they didn't disappoint!

A selection of our favorite images from the big day:


Brittany O'Connor of [ Studio RK ] did such an incredible job styling Christie's hair - it was something completely unique & beautiful. Loved it!


Amazing bouquets with seriously gorgeous flower combinations by [ Fiore Fine Flowers ]. Definitely some of the prettiest bouquets we've seen in a long time. Be sure to check out Christie's [ bridal session ] that was shot in Wilmington last month for photos of her amazing dress & shoes!


The wedding was at [ St. Therese Catholic Church ] right on Wrightsville Beach.




Loved the trolley we took from the ceremony to the reception! These are a super cute option for event transportation in the Wilmington area.




We stopped at one of Christie & Ryan's favorite beach spots on Figure 8 Island. Loved these trees!

The newlyweds making their entrance into the cocktail hour on the middle lawn at [ Figure 8 Island Yacht Club ]:





The reception was held inside the main building at the yacht club. This place was decorated to the nines with beautiful florals by [ Fiore Fine Flowers ], cake by [ Nancy Hearne ] & catering by [ Figure 8 Island Yacht Club ].


Loved all the beautiful natural light coming in through the huge wall of windows overlooking the water at the pier.









This crowd couldn't wait to get their booty-shaking on! I don't know if there was a single person in attendance who didn't make it out to the dance floor at least once. Loved it - so much fun! :)





Throwing rice as the perfect end to a beautiful night:


Thanks for having us along!

brooke + adam // wedding . outer banks . duck nc

Brooke & Adam came all the way from the UK to celebrate their special day with their closest friends & family & we were so glad they asked us to be a part of it! Though we had never met in person (& hadn't even spoken over the phone due to the long distance), Brooke & Adam were such sweet, fun, down-to-earth people that they felt more like old friends than people we were meeting for the first time. :)




Brooke & Adam had by far one of the sweetest, most emotion-filled ceremonies that we have witnessed. Seriously, have you ever seen such a happy, excited couple? You can tell these two are crazy about each other. So awesome.









Brooke & Adam stuck around for some photos together on the beach after the ceremony. They are so cute together - they were just too easy to photograph!










The beautiful bride.


Loved watching the sweet interactions between Adam & his son. How adorable is this series?! And P.S. - I am in love with Gene & Adam's suits!



Brooke's sister, Briana, is a wedding planner with [ Nouvelle Weddings ] & put together the lovely details of Brooke & Adam's day with the help of [ Great Cakes ], bouquets (at top of post) by [ The Embellishers ], catering by [ Outer Banks Grocery Stockers Chef Services ], & some fantastic live music by guitarist [ Rich Barry ].









Love this one of the boys eyeing the cake. :)






Brooke & Adam finally took a moment to themselves & walked on the beach at sunset. The day could not have ended more beautifully.
