dawn + brian // wedding . bald head island nc

As I'm sure you've all noticed, we haven't been blogging much lately, but that is certainly not for a lack of things to post! We have had a very busy spring & wedding season last fall, so now that things are finally calming down a bit we're working on catching our blog up to speed. We've got a few favorite shoots from last fall that we never got a chance to blog, so will start with Dawn & Brian's beautiful [ Bald Head Island ] wedding from last October. We had a fantastic time working with Jane Roberson, who coordinated the day flawlessly, & with the girls from [ Salt Harbor Designs ] who designed all of the day's gorgeous details. We really couldn't have asked for a better group of people to work with!

This dock out behind the house was a perfect spot for Dawn & Brian's first look photos!

The girls ducked into in the island's post office across the street from the [ Village Chapel ] while they waited for the ceremony to begin.

Unfortunately, [ Old Baldy ] was closed for another wedding happening that evening, so we weren't able to take wedding party pictures there, but we did manage to grab a couple quick shots of the bouquet next to the lighthouse.

We are so in love with these gorgeous moss-covered trees that are scattered all around the island. I don't think you could ask for a more picturesque backdrop for wedding party photos!

Dawn & Brian wanted to try to capture as much of the different scenery Bald Head has to offer in the photos as we could, so the next stop on our little trip around the island was the beach.

Seems like everywhere you go on Bald Head, there is yet another gorgeous view - the entire island is basically one big, beautiful backdrop for photographs! ;) Our final stop for photos was the Harborside Pavilion ], where we took a few last images overlooking the marsh at sunset.

And as an added bonus, you can see the [ lighthouse ] from there too!

The [ Pavilion ] was decorated from floor to ceiling (flowers & all!) by [ Salt Harbor Designs ]. They are such a talented group of girls & super nice people too!
