The wedding party rented out Clarendon Inn (the cutest little cozy inn) in Downtown Wilmington, right across the street from the reception location at the Hannah Block USO Community Center. It made taking getting ready shots and reception detail shots super easy:)
Becca & Yanic decided to have a first look before the wedding ceremony on the Riverfront in Downtown Wilmington.
Becca’s bouquet was so pretty!
Yanic & Becca were planning to get married in her parent’s yard in Burgaw, NC. Everyone had been working hard getting the place wedding-ready and it looked amazing. The only problem were the rain clouds that rolled in just before the wedding was to start. As the limos pulled in, the sprinkling slowed and guests hurried to wipe down the seats. Maybe the backup plan to marry in the church could be avoided after all. Then just as the ceremony started, so did the rain! No one was without an umbrella, so the wedding went on as planned, in the rain!
The poor bridesmaids were soaked, but it was definitely a memorable day!
Hurrying to blow-dry Becca’s dress…
Becca & Yanic did things a little differently in lots of ways, including having only bridesmaids!
The centerpieces for all the tables at the Hannah Block USO Community Center were all different floral decorated birdcages. They were so pretty and the florals were amazing! They also served the best shrimp and grits as martini style appetizers and were the best that anyone has ever had, hands down!
Becca broke out the clogging during Lynn Anderson’s version of the song Rocky Top.
I know this isn’t the best image composition wise, etc… but we thought it was cute nonetheless. When the bride’s sister started breaking it down, everyone seemed a bit shocked.
Anyone who wasn’t at the wedding want to take a guess at what song is playing during this next photo?
Hope you guys had a great time up in New York!
I also want to say THANK YOU to Erin O’neil for driving all the way from Greenville, SC to assist me with this wedding! She captured some great moments… I definitely recommend her to other photographers looking for a second shooter! Here she is in action…
And here’s a shot she got of me, sans umbrella balanced down my shirt… check out my blinding white legs!!! Ahhhh!!!
