Laura & Dave hosted their New Bern, NC Wedding at the Abiliena Plantation. It’s a beautiful location nestled back in trees and overlooking the water. Much like Outer Banks Weddings, when you book Abiliena you’ve got it for a week, which includes the house on property. Laura, Dave, and several members of their bridal party enjoyed a few days of relaxation and fun leading up to the wedding – it also makes things super handy for wedding prep and setup. Mother nature brought us a little surprise and as the rain started to fall we made the quick decision to move the ceremony under the pavilion. Laura & Dave opted to do as many ahead of time as we could fit in, so we were able to cover quite a bit. As luck would have it, at the end of the ceremony the rain stopped and we were able to get their formals out in the open and in front of the water!
Dave is in the Air Force, and they had about 3 weeks after the wedding before they would be moving to England for his Duty Station. Laura said she felt blessed to have finished work a couple of weeks early, and be able to use that time to spend visiting all of their friends and family before heading off. They’re not all settled in England, and after…oh a month?…they finally received all of their belongings!
