Festival Park Wedding

So honored to have one of my weddings featured in the Outer Banks Wedding Association Magazine and on their blog.
 

Moving away from the traditional beach wedding, Sarah and Jonathan planned a wedding near the shores of the Roanoke Sound at the Roanoke Island Festival Park. From the red, white, and blue tablescapes to the groomsmen’s ensembles, they embraced an Americana theme for their July 5 wedding. Our talented vendors like Matt Lusk Photography, Bells & Whistles, and It’s Royalty Salon, Spa & Nails helped make this wedding feature in our 2015 Outer Banks Bride Magazine utterly breathtaking.

Sarah and Jonathan’s Story:

Wedding Date: July 5, 2014

Color Palette: Red, White and Blue

How He Asked: After 10 years of dating, Jonathan still managed to completely surprise Sarah with the proposal. While they were out crabbing they came upon the third crab pot, which unlike the two before did not have any crabs. Instead there was a waterproof box (which had been zip-tied shut for extra safety!) that held Sarah’s engagement ring! Jonathan’s dad and brother had planted the crab pot before they had ventured out, and Jonathan had hand painted the buoy with their engagement date and their initials.

Favorite Wedding Memories: Something these two will never forget about their wedding was the first named tropical storm of 2014 almost ruining their plans. With lots of prayers, Hurricane Arthur thankfully hit the early morning of July Fourth and had moved off-shore by that afternoon. “It turned out better than we could have imagined, and it’s true what they say: the date after a hurricane is the most beautiful day!,” recalls Sarah and Jonathan.

Advice For Future Couples Tying The Knot: “The best piece of advice I can offer is to have a wedding planner, especially for destination weddings,” recalls Sarah. “Beth made everything so easy, took care of all the details, and was always there when we needed her! Her vendor recommendations were spot-on, and we wouldn’t have change a thing!”
