In the heart of winter, I am thinking back on photo sessions from the past year (and my lack of blogging them)… and one of the first was an early Spring wedding at an oceanfront beach house Nags Head NC. It ended up being very chilly and so incredibly windy that the the ocean waves crashed so far in that there was hardly a beach to stand on at all. There was a threat of rain and so with that and the blustery weather, Nick and Nicky decided to get married right on the oceanfront deck of their Nags Head beach house rental. They took the weather in stride though and the excitement was contagious. I think it really says something about a relationship and a person’s character when you are able to let something like inclement weather just slide off your back. The couples main focus was vowing a life together along with a newly formed family… just as it should be. Although it was windy (a typical Outer Banks experience) the rain held off and it was a beautiful wedding.
Nick and Nicky were so obviously in love and the groom was overcome with emotion just before the ceremony. He had happy tears in anticipation of spending the rest of his life with his lovely bride. And capturing emotion? That makes for a very happy photographer.
Nick has a bit of a traditionalist in him and didn’t want to see his bride before the wedding, so the couple opted for a “first touch” as opposed to a “first look.” It was touching to document them sharing an intimate moment while holding hands around the corner of the beach house. Nick was misty eyed again and you could just tell the depth of his love for his bride.
After the ceremony it started to sprinkle rain and we took some quick portraits of the couple on the beach. I’m glad we were able to get a few images of them in front of the gorgeous ocean! I think that the ocean is beautiful on any given day…it just has different moods. I’m honored that I was able to be part of such a special day. Congrats to Nick and Nicky! (soon to be happy 1st anniversary!)
The bride left this review on my facebook page: “You are amazing, our photos are gorgeous!! thanks for making our day memorable!! ”
Thanks for the glowing review Nicky! Hope to see you and your beautiful family when you are on your next vacation in the Outer Banks of North Carolina!
