Samantha & Jason | A Corolla, NC Sound to Sea Beach Club Wedding in the Outer Banks
Samantha and Jason’s much anticipated wedding day in Corolla didn’t disappoint any of the 120+ people that travelled from all over the country to witness it. Nestled behind the Outer Banks sand dunes was an amazing 16 bedroom event house called the Sound to Sea Beach Club that felt more like a boutique hotel than an actual event home. If you’ve ever been to the OBX, you know how naturally beautiful it is but for whatever reason the ocean really showed off while we were there. The most beautiful shade of blue/green I’ve ever seen in that area! I’ve known Sam and her family for awhile now and being able to capture their big day was truly an honor.
Weather threatened all day and it rained off and on throughout but it cleared up during all the right times. The sun even made an appearance during their ceremony and gave us just enough time for portraits and cocktail hour before picking back up again. Sam & Jason, both being Hokie alumni were introduced into the reception by none other than Enter Sandman (of course?) and was follow up by a surprise flash mob organized by the bride’s mom - how amazing is that!? You can see her shocked reaction below!
It was such a stunning day made possible by a dream team of vendors and I am so honored to have been a part of their big day! And a special THANK YOU to my second shooter, Ashley Duke of Faith Photography!
I’m terrible at writing these posts so I’m just going to wrap it up and let pictures speak for themselves.
AND CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT LAST PHOTO? We dodged so much lighting and I had my gear wrapped in several trash bags because it was absolutely monsooning. When your bride wants a specific picture, you GET IT DONE. Several thunderstorm or not! ;)
*Bonus Story* Right as Jason was walking into the ceremony, I had the biggest wardrobe malfunction ever. I stepped on my jumpsuit and the strap broke leaving everything up top exposed. I panicked but luckily had my second shooter Ashley to cover while I scrambled for a backup plan. I ran over to my husband who was sitting awaiting the ceremony to begin and he along with a few guests help tie my strap just to get me through. We fixed it before I missed the girls walking down and all is well but I would be lying if I said I didn’t want to cry right then and there. C'est la vie!
