Last month was a whirlwind, we shot three weddings in three different states within eight days! It was a fun time for Nick and I traveling cross country and working with some great people. I have been super excited to share this wedding, Congrats Karen and Tony! When Karen and I started talking last year about their small elopement wedding at Holden Beach, I couldn’t wait for the day to arrive. Karen has a knack for decorating and style, I loved the vintage and coastal elements she included in their wedding day. I am now a believer that everyone should rent a beach house, pack it full with friends and family, and have a low key ceremony. It was a fun day and trip for everyone! Who doesn’t love the beach!?
The night before the wedding we met Karen and Tony out at the old nostalgic pier in Holden Beach for some fun pre-wedding pictures. We started the wedding day at the beach house where Karen, Tony, and all their family and friends were staying. Yes, it was a huge beach house! This location was at the very end of the coast on Holden Beach. The beaches were long, it felt like a mile out to the shoreline. The area was very private and almost deserted that time of the year. It was the perfect location for a low key ceremony. The whole day was chill, it was the calmest wedding I have ever photographed. The party got ready while some of the family prepared the shrimp boil for dinner that night. Karen and Tony said their vows on the beach while the sunset below the horizon. It was beautiful and something I hope they will remember for the rest of their lives.
After the ceremony, the family and new Mr & Mrs Vick hung out at the beach house and reminisced on old memories. The party didn’t stop there, we also photographed their reception at Camp Bob White back home in Knob Noster, Missouri. Many thanks to both families who allowed us to feel like one of your own for this special trip and thank you Karen & Tony for allowing us to document this adventure! So happy for you guys! xoxo
