When we first got the inquiry for Madison and Ashton’s wedding day, we were so excited to see it was a destination wedding in the outer banks of North Carolina! And in one of the most precious, quieter towns of Duck. A destination wedding at the beach? Yes, please! Our first beach wedding was nothing less than perfection and a great start to our 2019 wedding season.
Their Wedding Day
From the couple getting ready with some of their closest friends, to the romantic first look shared between the bride and groom on the beach, to the sweet sentiments remembering Ashton’s father (the letters, the Baby Ruths on all the guests chairs, the speeches), to Madison’s wedding dress (that she knew was the one because she didn’t even have to have alterations!), to ending with some killer dance moves on the dance floor…we absolutely loved filming this wedding.
Although, the high winds from the weekend didn’t allow them to have their ceremony directly on the beach, like planned, they totally made the most out of it and we were still able to do that sweet first look ocean side. Seriously, Madison was the picture perfect bride for a beach wedding; that gown, that hair. So gorgeous! Ashton’s first dance with his mother started out as your typical slow dance, but about half way through, the shoes were kicked off, the sunglasses were put on, and they tore the dance floor up! Ashton’s face he made when the dj “faked” the song messing up even had us fooled. I seriously thought something had went wrong. Such a good surprise!
My favorite part? Oh my gosh, so hard to pick. But I absolutely love when we have such a genuinely, sweet couple to work with…and these two were just that. And also, the sweet card reading from Ashton to Madison.
Brett’s favorite part? I’m going to quote him directly when he said “how nice and genuine they were. It had a great family feel to it! And the sugar thing for the garter toss was funny, too!” Haha yes, way to go groomsmen!
We hope you enjoy watching their film!
