I met with Nikki and Eric 4th of July weekend up in Duck to chat about their upcoming wedding. From the first meeting I just knew it was going to be a great wedding, not only because they were so friendly and laid back but because they wanted that to be the feel of their wedding. They chose to do a small wedding with immediate family on a soundside pier/gazebo in Duck that belongs to the community where Nikki’s family owns a house, followed by dinner at The Blue Point in Duck. That was the plan, and then Hurricane Irene happened! Nikki and Eric took it in stride, because most people would panic when they find out their ceremony site now looks like this:
A quick change of plans, and the ceremony was moved to The Saltaire in Duck. GREAT CHOICE! The Saltaire is beautiful, and made for a beautiful backdrop. Everything from the interior rooms to the outside was perfect. Even more perfect were Nikki and Eric, who wowed everyone with their gorgeous looks. Nikki stole the show in her vintage dress…..be still my heart! As much as I love shooting on the beach, it’s a photographers dream when you get to break out of your normal and do something a little different. The evening ended with drinks on the back lawn of The Blue Point watching the sun set over the sound, followed by dinner in the private room. Congrats on a beautiful wedding!
