We almost didn’t make it to this Sunset Beach NC Wedding!! It was little over a week after Hurricane Florence rocked the North Carolina coast line, and getting south of Wilmington wasn’t an easy feat. We left at 9AM for what should be a 3 hour trip, and didn’t arrive until 3:40PM…only 20 minutes before our coverage began! We followed all the map programs and all the detours, and every time we’d get to the next turn the road would be closed. We’d turn around, have to go 20-30 minutes back in the direction we just came, only to try a different route and have to do it all over again at the next turn. It was an absolute mess.

At one point, Jennifer even called me, thanked me for trying so hard, and told me to go home. We weren’t about to miss their day though!. When we finally arrived to their venue, we knew it was worth the hardships getting there. It was one of the sweetest, best, most rewarding wedding days I’ve photographed in a long time. It was such an honor to be part of their day. I truly mean that.

Their relationship is so real and true. They kept their day intimate and very personal to them. Her son walked her down the aisle, and his sons stood by his side. They had 30 of their closest friends and family there, packed on the porch of the most beautiful beach house ever, all crying happy tears as they witnessed them say I do. I could go on and on about their day, but I think you’ll see in the pictures just what I mean.

Jennifer & Chris, you guys could have chosen anyone and you chose us as your Sunset Beach, NC Wedding photographers. That means the world. I can’t thank you enough for allowing us to be part of your day. It was such a blessing to us. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. We can’t wait to watch your marriage grow even stronger! Congratulations on your happily ever ever!

In a fun addition to my art, I decided to shoot some of their wedding on Film! The scans by Photo Vision are mixed in among the digital images below! I love how the film images handled the beachy tones.
