Sarah & Rob’s Calabash, NC Wedding Highlights

Calabash NC Wedding Anchored in Love_1064


Sara and Rob are just gorgeous!  I wanted to sit around and photograph them forever!  It seems like a lifetime ago we shot their engagement shoot downtown Wilmington.  There I got to know them and their sweet pup Rosie and I started counting down the days until the we could shoot their wedding.  The wedding was held in Calabash, North Carolina.  I loved the riverside view from the ceremony and the trees covered in spanish moss.  So iconically southern.

Favorite Moments:

– Fantastic Bridesmaids!  Sarah did well!  All her girls were sweet, fun and so pretty.  I loved watching them beaming at Sarah as she put on her dress.

–  The ceremony was so lovely!  I cried pretty hard when Sarah’s grandpa sang the Lord’s Prayer.  It was a true treat to hear!

– The first dance was so fancy!

– The tender and heartfelt goodbyes at the end.  It was an exit to remember!

Barrett and I considered it a true joy to be a part of your wonderful wedding!  Congratulations Sarah & Rob!

Here’s some thoughts from the bride:

My coordinator’s name is Debbie Wright. She is a friend of my mom’s and offered to help coordinate for the wedding.  She had some experience coordnating in the past but doesn’t do it professionally. I was really glad to have her on Sunday! She helped arrange our decorations with us in the morning and took over by herself after we left to go get ready and she was there to meet the caterer and florist to make sure they put our tables and flowers where they needed to go. She also helped me plan the order of events for the ceremony and reception and coordinated between everyone. It really made the day go a lot smoother. I would really recommend at least having a day of coordinator.
My caterer was Art Catering out of Shallotte. I thought the food turned out great! What I really liked about them was that they were able to provide us with all our linens, tables and chair rentals, which was great so we didn’t have to do that ourselves.
My florist was Coastal Floral Designs out of Shallotte. I thought our flowers turned our beatifully, but she was really difficult to work with. She had great vision and was great in person planning out everything, but hard to get a hold of over the phone or by email.
I used Cakes by the Sea for my cake out of Longs, SC.  I loved our cake. They were really easy to work with and we were able to go in twice to try out samples.
I used Scott Shaw Productions for our DJ. They were also super easy to work with. We only had to meet with them once in person and our DJ went out to our location on his own time to look at the reception location to see what he would need equiptment wise for the wedding.
I got my make up done by Makeup Artistry On Location– Mary Chestnut and my hair by Studio One Hair Designs. I really liked how my hair and makeup turned out and would recommend them both!
Overall, I think our wedding turned out wonderfully.  I am really glad I had a day-of coordinator and really glad we made a list of all our photos that we wanted before the wedding and took pictures before and after the ceremony. I thought that really helped us capture all the images we wanted and made the day more organized.
