30 Sep Laken + Tyler | Holden Beach, NC Beach Wedding
Taken and Tyler’s wedding was one of the sweetest, most intimate, and joyful celebrations. These two became fast friends and it was such an honor to be a part of their Holden Beach wedding. Seriously, Laken and I forgot that we actually had never met one another until that day.
Rather than a wedding back home, they decided to have their closest friends and family join them on the beach in North Carolina. I asked Laken why they chose Holden Beach and she told me that she and her mom drove down the coast and this little spot just spoke to her. WHAT A DREAM!
Lake’s dad built the most beautiful arbor on the beach and guests gathered round as Laken walked from the beach house to her dad in the most beautiful dress. I could not get over how beautiful the sleeves were on that dress! The water was coming in from all sides (literally— they had to move the arbor a few times and the waves were inching forward the whole ceremony), but that didn’t seem to phase anyone. Tyler’s face as Laken walked down the aisle brought tears to just about everyone’s eyes (including mine). These two said ‘I do’ through a few tears and laughs and we spent some time just the three of us at sunset on the beach. It was magical.
When I asked them both what their favorite part of the day, their response was my favorite. They said it was simply having all of their closest friends and family around them. It was looking at all of their guests gather around them on the beach, and having them there to celebrate their big day. These two are the real deal, folks.
