Brent and I kicked off this year’s wedding season with this lovely duo, Sarah and Ryan. We started at Kenan Chapel where they were excitedly waiting to say their “I do’s.” Despite the chill in the air, everyone had a smile on their face and love in their hearts for Sarah and Ryan.
The reception was a quite the party as The Jangling Rhineharts played their favorite tunes. One of the best parts about this wedding was the family-like atmosphere. It honestly felt like one big family party filled with laughs, hugs and lots of love. Cheers to Sarah and Ryan and their special day!
Sarah and Ryan, looking back on your wedding, it’s plain to see how special your relationship is with one another. We hope these images whisk you back to that meaningful day and put a smile on your face!
Of course we would like to say a HUGE thank you to those who helped make this day perfect!

Brent and I recently met up with Cameron and Dave, a couple from the Raleigh area. They are getting married this summer. This duo met through a blind date, or at least that is what Cameron assumed. Shortly before Dave was scheduled to pick Cameron up for their evening out, there was a flower delivery for Cameron. The funny thing was, the flower delivery man was actually Dave in disguise (fake tattoos and all)! It wasn’t until he mentioned it at dinner later that evening that she realized what he had orchestrated. It was sneaky and sweet and the two had an amazing night of dinner, dancing and great conversation.
Brent and I had a great time with Cameron and Dave and despite the winds and very cold chill, all of us enjoyed laughs and getting to know one another. We can’t wait until their wedding!
Cameron and Dave, thanks for a wonderful afternoon! Watching you two reminded us that it’s important to be silly and have fun in everything you do. Thanks for the smiles and laughs throughout the session!
One of our favorite things we learned about Sally & Jordan during their engagement session was the story of how they got engaged. Jordan works for the Wrightsville Beach Police Department and on the night he proposed, he had a little help from one of his co-workers who stopped Sally because of a “missing” license plate. Panicked, Sally called Jordan to come to her rescue which he did, with a beautiful ring in hand. Of course, the entire event was planned by Jordan but he knew he wanted to catch Sally off guard-and he did! We are looking forward to Sally and Jordan’s big day!
Thanks to Sally and Jordan for a great afternoon! You were both troopers to brave the chilly winds and your engagement story is so fun and unique. Brent and I are glad that we will be a part of your wedding!
Sarah and Dana’s were married this past October on an amazing Saturday afternoon. Brent and I were looking forward to this wedding because we’ve known Sarah for several years. She actually works for an event design company in town, Stellar Events, who we have worked with on numerous weddings. It was exciting to see Sarah in the spotlight as the bride and she could not have looked any more beautiful! The entire day was filled with endearing words, sweet moments and fun surprises. It was truly a perfect day and I am sure it was everything Sarah and Dana wanted for their wedding.
Sarah and Dana, Brent and I cannot thank you enough for allowing us to share in your day! Your love for one another is transparent by the way you are with one another. We saw the excitement in both your eyes during your first sight, we saw the happy tears that were shed during your vows and we saw your love expressed through smiles and laughter. Thanks for letting us capture your love!
Of course we have to thank everyone who gave Sarah and Dana the wedding they dreamed about. Thanks so much!

Sara and Scott know how to have a good time wherever they are. They love riding on their beach cruisers, playing with their sweet labs and hanging out with friends. Since they feel at home on the surf and sand, we felt the beach was the best place for us to meet up for their engagement session. We had so much fun with Sara and Scott and genuinely had a good time getting to know one another!
Sara and Scott, we are looking forward to your wedding and getting to meet your family and friends. If your guests are anything thing like you two, we know it’s going to be a fun crowd!
