Laid back weddings where the bride just goes with the flow are always welcome! A storm was rolling in down in Kitty Hawk for Nick and Jessica's wedding. It was so windy that they had to move their ceremony from the beach to inside and they didn't skip a beat. The weather held out long enough to get amazing windy beach pictures after right after the ceremony. The pictures speak for themselves!

I always love when a super personal touch is added to a wedding. Jessica's mother is no longer with us. Her dad had a necklace made using his wedding band, her mom's wedding band, and the diamond from her mom's engagement ring. He placed the necklace on Jessica's neck before she walked down the aisle to Nick. It was so touching to witness the bond Jessica and her dad have. And yes, I cried along with everyone else in the room!

Huge shout out to my partner in crime for driving down to North Carolina with me to second shoot! Heather Papineau Photography
