Nancy and Keith were married October 10th at “Memory Maker” in Ocean Isle Beach. Memory Maker is one of the most beautiful beach houses I’ve ever seen. You can check it out here. It made the perfect backdrop for their special day. When I sat down with Nancy the day before her wedding she said you do know it’s going to rain right? Of course I tried saying maybe not… we’ll wait and see. Trying to give her a glimmer of hope that every weather station we looked at was wrong. Most brides would have had a complete fit that their wedding wasn’t going to happen just as they had planned out on the beach. But not Nancy. She and Keith both, were so easy going and willing to just go with the flow. The morning of her wedding I had hope that maybe just maybe the rain would hold off but by lunch time it was pouring and continued to do so most of the night. At least though, they say rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck!
Their wedding party was so much fun! You wouldn’t know that some of these shots were taken with Mr. Smitho or myself standing in the pouring rain to get it.
We had to get creative with the bridal shots and the shots of the bride and groom due to the rain. We wanted them to be unique, also wanted to show the venue and setting , and to hopefully make it so that you didn’t see all the rain.
The reception was so sweet. I have to admit I became quite misty eyed watching Nancy and her Daddy dance. It was such a precious moment when her daddy became emotional. One of my favorite pictures of the reception is the guys catching the garter. If you can zoom in on their faces. They were hilarious!
So despite the rain and all the unforeseen circumstances Nancy and Keith’s day was perfect! She was so gorgeous! I told her she looked like Katie Holmes. She and Keith were so perfect together and you couldn’t help but feel the love they shared for one another.
Congratulations on your wedding! We wish you many years of happiness!
