Mary and Ben are a couple I’ve been lucky enough to get to know as I’ve made myself a new home here in Wilmington. They were one of my first couples to take a chance on me, and one of the first that I photographed here. Not only did they take me by boat to Masonboro Island for their engagement session, but they also won me over with their incredibly fun and laid back personalities. They’ve made me feel so much more like a friend than someone they simply hired to be at their wedding.

These two had a beautiful ceremony on the end of a pier at the Watermark Marina, surrounded by a bright yellow sunset, family, friends, and everyone that cares about them the most. Their reception was just a walk back down the pier, with an indoor/outdoor seating area and all the twinkle lights my little heart could hope for. The dinner was an elaborate taco bar, followed by SO MANY DONUTS. Some of my favorite wedding food ever, might I add. The drinks flowed, the dancing never stopped, and the love and laughter was everywhere. Thank you for a wonderful evening, Mary and Ben, and I can’t wait to watch your marriage grow :) now check out the highlights of their big day!!
