Leah & Billy’s Outer Banks Wedding at Koru Beach Club in Avon was nothing short of amazing, surrounded by the most amazing group of family and friends. Custom built wedding arch, details galore, and a Taco Bar…..what more could you ask for??
Leah & Billy met through mutual friends at a bar in Downtown Raleigh. Billy proceeded to ask Leah out for six months before she finally said yes….and the rest was history! After two years of dating Billy decided to pop the question – but getting it done turned out to be quite the challenge! Despite Billy already making dinner reservations for that evening, Leah accepted an invitation for them to spend the day on the lake boating with friends. After a long day in the sun they headed home to get ready for dinner, Leah proclaiming she didn’t feel like doing her hair and would rather stay home. After dinner at The Oak they headed home, where Billy finally got down on one knee and asked Leah to marry him!
Leah & Billy love the Outer Banks, and knew the Koru Beach Club would be the perfect venue to host their OBX Wedding. Their day, and details, was nothing short of amazing!! While their bouquets and boutonnieres (as well as fabric draped ceilings) were done by Bells & Whistles, everything else was the most amazing DIY project I have ever seen. No attention to detail was spared, and it was most definitely a labor of love. Almost ever piece of their wedding decor was built by hand by Leah & Billy’s dads. From the custom built ceremony benches and arch, to the wooden boxes that held flowers for all their centerpieces. Probably the most impressive aspect were the two custom built beer taps!!
Weather here on the OBX can be fickle, and our entire drive down to Avon we had a feeling it was going to rain. Sure enough, just as we were headed out for their First Look it started to sprinkle. Leah was such a trooper and instead of turning around to head inside she kept on going…determined to tap her man on the shoulder! We managed to get in the First Look, family formals, and bridal party photos before we headed off to the venue. Mother Nature took pity on us, and managed to stay dry until we were all safely tucked away in the reception. Half way through the skies let go as they danced the night away!
