Bald Head Island Wedding Photographer
Abigail and I were lucky enough to go to Elon University together for undergrad, and she is such a sweet human being. When she met TJ her life changed for the better. No one could have put this transition into better words than her maid of honor. During her toast she explained that as soon as Abigail met TJ, she became a better person. The two of them together have the cutest traditions and quirks that make them the couple they are today. They care deeply for each other and others.
I knew this wedding was going to be a special day for so many reasons. First, Abigail and TJ had to reschedule their wedding from last fall to May of this year because of hurricanes. Bald Head Island was under water during their first wedding date! These two patiently waited for several more months to be able to share their vows with each other on the island that means so much to them and their families.
As soon as I arrived at Abigail’s beach house on the morning of her wedding day, the room was filled with joy. She had a collection of uplifting bridesmaids sharing their favorite memories of Abigail. TJ was having the same experience with his groomsmen in their own house.
When we drove to the marsh where they wanted to share their first look, everyone was full of emotion. It finally settled in that they were going to have their dream day. The exchange between Abigail and TJ as they shared their first look was precious. I’ve never seen smiles so big. I lost count of how many times they said I love you!!
The day continued to be full of emotion. This included happy tears and laughter. All the guests were interconnected and shared the same love for this couple as a whole. It was evident in so many ways, and there was no shortage of people willing to share sweet memories of Abigail and TJ.
This year has been full of weddings that have left me speechless in the best ways. Abigail and TJ had a beautiful day full of boho decorations. However, what I really took away from it wasn’t how aesthetically lovely everything was. These two have a palpable connection. You could feel the love between them. They glow in each other’s presence. You can see it in the way they look at each other. These moments are what make weddings come alive.
