Wedding Story: Jennifer and Allen

The rains and the winds kept coming that weekend... the plans might have changed several different times but the outcome was the same= a beautiful wedding and a fabulous celebration to follow! Jennifer and Allen got married at the Dolphin Ridge Club at Emerald Isle, NC. The rains and the winds prevented the ceremony from being on the beach, but everything still ended up being gorgeous.

Jennifer always knows how to bring the sass :)

One of the only requests Jennifer had was to see Allen without
"seeing" him before the ceremony...

My second-shooter for the day, Jennifer (yes, two Jennifers one day), got the other shot that the bride Jennifer requested-- Allen's face when he lays eyes on her walking down the aisle. Great catch Jenn!

After the ceremony there was a break in the rains so we changed
around the schedule a bit and ran to the beach to grab a few shots!

While the rains and winds begin to blow harder, the party turned up a notch...

In a shower of petals, Jennifer and Allen headed off to Raleigh to catch a plan just a few hours later to head off to their tropical honeymoon!

Jennifer and Allen: What a gorgeous day you had! Photographer Jennifer and I had the best time running around in the rain with you two and all your wonderful friends and family-- Hope the honeymoon afforded you plenty of sunshine on the beach :)

Oh. My. Word. Those pictures are amazing. The one of them "seeing" each other without seeing each other before the wedding is absolutely spectacular. Simply stunning as always, Ashley & David. & the night ones are gorgeous too. I cannot WAIT for our wedding. One year! :D
