John & Caroline- Bald Head Island, NC

October 30, 2007

Bald Head Island is a somewhat magical place that sits between the river and the ocean off the coast of Southport, NC.  John and Caroline had all the makings of a perfect wedding day, and I had the great opportunity to photograph it all.

Like all proper beach communities, most of the houses on the island have been given clever names that usually only the owners know the inside scoop about.  This is the one where the guys were getting ready.

I still can’t figure out why I’m drawn to this image.  A year ago I would have thrown it out, but there’s something about it that interests me.  Besides, we  showed their faces in 92% of the rest of the photos.

I like color, I like sashes.

The cake had clean lines and a simple elegant design.  I haven’t seen that in a while and it was nice.

Sunset was amazing.  The actual sunset was happening off to camera right, but this was a much more interesting scene.

Bald Head Island is a Sea Turtle nesting sanctuary so there are lots of restrictions on what you can and can’t have to throw for your getaway.  No sparklers, seeds, streamers or petals are allowed, but glow sticks are in!

With the help of a guest, we had fun playing in the dark with glow sticks and the couple’s monogram.
