Chelsea & Stephen found me through BAO Events for their May 5, 2012 wedding. After a lot of scheduling, we finally met up this winter for their engagement shoot- just in time for the wedding right around the corner. Their friends and family travelled from near and far to Knots Landing at Ocean Isle beach for the May festivities and everyone was ready for a good time!
Chelsea was a super relaxed bride, taking care of her own make-up while she let Andre Patnode take care of her amazing and full-of-detail hair…gorgeous! We spent the morning photographing Chelsea & all of her bridesmaids & before we knew it, it was GO TIME- good thing her blackberry reminded her it was “time to get married” (see photo). Her dress from Mecklenburg Bridal was simply stunning- and it had pockets- I love, love, love a dress with pockets! The groomsmen were in perfect beach wedding dress, the weather was a perfect temperature with a slight breeze, and the vows went off with laughter and a few tears. The love between these two is extremely obvious, and very real. To see them interact really made me smile.
The guests danced the night away with tunes from Scott Shaw & they noshed on cupcakes from Kristy Neubauer of 2 Chics and a Cake before exiting with a sparkler send off. Many congratulations to them both!
