The Outer Banks

I’ve always wondered what a destination wedding would be like. This summer, I got my answer.

My friend Chris and his fiancée Stacy chose the Outer Banks in North Carolina as their wedding destination…it was easy to see why. They invited all of their friends out for a week of fun and celebration. My friend Andrew and my younger brother Cam joined me, and we road-tripped it all the way. For me, it was a really relaxing long weekend; a great time to unwind, enjoy the peace of the ocean, and help celebrate the wonderful commitment of two friends in marriage.

From the first ride in on the back of the pickup truck, I knew this was going to be an amazing week for photos.Outer_Banks_0001_150903 Outer_Banks_0002_150903 Outer_Banks_0003_150903

Yes, there were wild horses roaming the beaches. No, they weren’t friendly, and didn’t let us pet them 🙁

My bro Cam got to crash the wedding. He arrived only knowing the groom, but he left as everyone’s friend. That guy has a unique ability to make friends fast.Outer_Banks_0010_150903

The sweet, sweet mansion we called home for the weekend.Outer_Banks_0013_150903

Meet the ring-bearer, Belle. She kept the energy levels high the entire time. Belle is a beautiful, purebred golden retriever.
