Justin & Ashley were troopers as they watched the rain fall on their wedding day. They really wanted photos on the beach, and lucky for us the next day called for sun. They got dressed up again, and met me at Coquina Beach for some “Day After” photos. Bless them, because it was C.O.L.D. Ashley was so smart, and after getting out of the car lifted the hem of her dress to show the leggings she had put on to help stay warm. Smart girl! We started out at the beach, and then headed across the street to the Bodie Island Lighouse. The lighthouse itself is under scaffolding, but the grounds are great for photographing.
About five shots in, Justin realized that he’d lost his wedding ring. Not kidding. We piled in the car and drove back across to the beach to look. We were ALL over that beach during pictures, and honestly, I thought the odds of finding it were super slim. Needle in a haystack anyone? I was in serious shock when after about two minutes I look up to see Justin running down the beach…..low and behold there was his ring sitting on the hard packed sand. They were truly blessed! The whole time Ashley was as calm as could be, a true testament to the type of person she is. Most brides would have been in hysterics over a lost wedding ring – after only being married for 24 hours. Wedding ring in hand back we headed back over to the lighthouse we went to finish up the session.
