Words are hard to describe the incredible, fun, and just purely AMAZING day that was Alli and Jesse’s wedding day in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. I’ve been photographing weddings a long time now, but I will never get over the feeling I get when I leave a day like this one. These two were just OVERJOYED to be near each other, let alone make it official for the rest of their lives. The morning quite literally started out with a waterspout (which to me is just a fancy word for a tornado over the ocean) directly outside the beach house where they would be hosting their wedding just a few hours later, and then ended with the most stunning sunshine day, a beautiful sunset, and the most fun dance party. Not to mention, they even jumped into the pool in their wedding attire at the end of the reception, and then like 90% of their guests followed suit. I left wet, happy, and in awe. What an epic day. What an incredible couple. I’m so lucky to be just one small part of days like this one.
