We are wild for purple… amethyst, plum, and violet… and of course we’re always delighted when a wedding album sweeps us away to the beach! Marie and Nate’s wedding in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina was a blend of the two: gorgeous color and sweet East Coast scenery. This Outer Banks wedding, photographed by Echard Wheeler, was beachy & intimate, with the perfect amount of casual elegance.
Marie brought elegance to the beach by wearing this classic Justin Alexander gown. The bridesmaids, who flew in from all over the country, looked so pretty in plum-colored Alfred Sung dresses. For the ceremony, the focus was on the vows and the amazing coastal setting.
This adorable couple met in Rocket Club in high school, and kept in touch throughout the years. After many years of talking and many moves around the country, Nate finally asked Marie on a date- they were married three years later!
Marie and Nate love the Outer Banks, and made it the highlight of the day. After a beachfront ceremony, the reception was just steps away, indoors at the Pier House. They also really wanted to support local businesses, so they opted for saltwater taffy favors from Forbes Candies, florals from Bells and Whistles, and a menu of local seafood. The cake from Argyle’s brought the beach theme inside.
Their special day began with a little drizzle, but ended up with sunshine and a warm breeze. As evening came, indoor lanterns made the reception glow…
With the vibrant florals, amazing venue, and an adorably happy couple- this wedding was just filled with our favorite things! <3
