Erica and Mike’s Outer Banks wedding at Aqua Spa in Duck, NC was truly incredible and we’re honored to have been a part of their big day! From the moment we first spoke with Erica and Mike on Skype, we just had that feeling that they were going to be a great couple to work with. Needless to say, when we first met with them in December for their engagement pictures in the Outer Banks, they easily exceeded our expectations and we absolutely fell in love with their sweet dog, Sadie.
When their wedding day arrived, all the pieces started falling into place; one picture at a time, we (Jayson) began documenting the day as it unfolded in front of us. One aspect of the wedding day that especially stood out to us was Sadie (Erica and Mike’s sweet dog) love for Erica. Sadie never left Erica’s side during the getting ready process and looked on as Erica’s stylist and makeup artist put the final touches on her hair and makeup. Most brides would cringe at the thought of having a dog sit on their wedding dress, thankfully Erica loved the idea but it was Sadie that really ‘stretched out’ the idea. Sadly, Sadie couldn’t attend the ceremony, but she was happy to handle ‘best dog’ responsibilities back at the beach house with a bowl of food and her favorite chew toy.
Erica and Mike’s Outer Banks wedding day came and went in a flash. We’re humbled and honored to have had the opportunity to work with Erica, Mike, their incredible families, and some of the best wedding vendors in the Outer Banks of NC (be sure to see the complete list below and let them know we recommended them).
Thanks for visiting today!
