As promised, I'm dropping in today to share a few photos from my wedding last week. All of the photos I'm sharing here were taken by the wonderful Kip Beech of Middle Child Photography.
When I got engaged back in December, I did what every girl does: I ran out and bought a stack of wedding magazines to start looking through. And almost immediately I realized that a typical sort of wedding just wasn't for us, so after a bit of chatting with our families we decided to elope instead. Since we were already planning a vacation to the tiny community of Holden Beach, we figured it would be a great elopement location too. And it was perfect for us, very quaint and quiet.
We set up a date with the officiant and photographer. We ordered our rings. I made my own boutique from vintage brooches and some craft store finds as well. And then although I bought at least 4 pretty white dresses, I settled on this lovely purple one instead at the last minute.
Our ceremony was simple and sweet followed by a round of fun photographs and a quick dip in the ocean:
I didn't have a white dress or a big ceremony or tons of guests, but for us, it was perfect :)
