Nearly 2 years ago Shannon and Lee contacted us about photographing their destination wedding at the Outer Banks in NC. October 2017 seemed like lightyears away but as time does, the months flew by and last weekend we finally found ourselves meeting Shannon and Lee for the first time face to face on their wedding day!
I had known from following them that they were gorgeous and I had known from reading about them that they were completely smitten for each other. I knew their wedding day was going to be out of this world. What I didn’t know was just how much these two were going to blow me away with every element of their day from their sweet love to their jaw dropping decor to their spontaneous jump into the pool after their exit (no joke, you HAVE to scroll down to see it)!
They chose the oh so stylish Wonderous Stories house in Kill Devil Hills to host their intimate wedding and were joined by 24 of their closest friends and family who flew in to be by their side. We just melt over small wedding days! When every single guest is there because the bride and groom love them deeply, the atmosphere takes on a whole new level of intimacy. The couple can truly enjoy their special moment with each of their guests and it’s so special to witness!
Shannon left no stone unturned in planning her wedding day, either. She had the most beautiful details for us to photograph and it was SO. MUCH. FUN. Grace loves Lace anklets, a handlettered Just Married jacket (that jacket though!!) by KRorer Decor, the most unique wooden arch from Amaranth + Artifact, hand lettered signage on plexiglass (also by Krorer!), and allll of the organic, flowy florals by Honeysuckle Events.
Every ounce of this wedding day photographed like a dream and we had the most fabulous time documenting a love that began over ice-cream, was strengthened over kittens (haha!) and solidified for eternity on the sand at the Outer Banks!
Shannon and Lee, we are grateful from the bottoms of our hearts that you asked us to join with you in your perfect day and I am so excited to share a peak for you!!
