Kristen and Nick… SUCH a fantastic couple together! We first met Kristen a few years back at her brothers wedding when we photographed for him. So last year when she called inquiring about hiring us, we were so excited! Fast forward a little over a year and their wedding day arrived! June 18 – a day filled with great expectations and lavish beauty.
The day before held barely a cloud in the sky and we were optimistic for glorious weather! But that night the clouds rolled in and we had all awoke to grey skies burdened with billions of tiny drops just waiting to unload upon the ground. By one the heavens had opened: a sprinkle at first, which kept growing and growing to full out rain for their Manteo Resort wedding. So we embraced all it’s good fortunes and rolled with nature!
The words from that famous Les Miserables song come to our minds…
“A little fall of rain can hardly hurt me now
You’re here, that’s all I need to know.
And you will keep me safe, and you will keep me close,
and rain will make the flowers grow.”
The rain offered us such vibrant spring colours and gave these lovebirds a constant reason to snuggle in close to keep warm. Just like spring rain brings summer blossoms, so today began a wonderful story of something far more beautiful – the eternal love of two people who will build a lifetime of memories and a beautiful family together. In all honesty, that rain was quite symbolic of the promises they had just made to nurture and love one another forever!
Following speeches we attempted to get some photos at the waterfront on Manteo’s dock. Check them out! It was SO WINDY we lasted but 2 minutes before calling it quits. Nice try 😉
The remainder of our night was filled with fun, dancing and a whole lot of laughter. Such a great reception!
Congratulations Nick and Kristen! We appreciate you both so much and enjoyed literally every part of your wedding day. Your friends and family are so delightful and authentic, every detail of your day was so perfectly planned out, and you two have all the right stuff for a wonderful marriage. We couldn’t be happier for you both!
A huge shout out to these talented vendors!
