In keeping with our “seriously, let’s update the blog more often” agreement, here’s another fantastic fall wedding. You’d never know from the photos that this was anytime but summer – Steve and Kym were married on the sand in Atlantic Beach, NC, and the sun was still as bright and beautiful as it was in July. The wedding was shortly after Hurricane Ophelia’s surprise visit to the coast, so their original ceremony location – the pier at the Sheraton – and reception ballroom were destroyed, and due to be torn down the week after their scheduled wedding. Instead, the Sheraton opened a smaller, intimate room near the sand that somehow survived the worst of the storm, and the ceremony moved right onto the beach. In a good humor that was typical of their entire relationship, Kym even asked me to include the ruined pier in some shots, just to remind the two of them that what mattered went on as planned: their commitment to each other, and the celebration with their friends and family.
So! In these pics, watch for some fantastic Chuck Taylors, worn by the whole wedding party and personalized with the date; Rebecca, doing a little dress lacing (yep, we do it all!); a first look session at Fort Macon that was just gorgeous; Kym’s tribute to her dad, a conch shell that she passed to her mom; a last walk along the shore before the sun went down; and so much more. Thanks, friends, for including us in your amazing weekend!
