Wrightsville Beach played host to my first wedding of the season. Unfortunately I was not prepared for the weather that came with it. As a photographer your dream for an outdoor wedding has shade! And when I mean shade, I mean clouds, and not bright skies..
It was a socrechaa (in my best Bostonian voice 🙂 ) of a day! It was wicked hot, let’s just put it out there! But alas it was a Wrightsville Beach Wedding. I mean.. It’s like the Cape Cod or Hamptons of the south. It truly is a gem in North Carolina.
There was sweat, and glicising and any other cute word you can describe perspiring with! I am in the final stages of editing Sarah and James’s wedding. One thing I learned from this wedding is keep water for your guest if your doing an outdoor ceremony during these months. And also keep a shaded area designated for your guest. We definitely have to take an account grandma’s and grandpa’s out there and keeping them comfortable.
I dress in an all black Calvin Klein business dress and my husband who assist me, dresses in a black polo, and dress pants. Needless to say, we were on fire.. This was the first time I had decided to shoot without my shoes in fear of getting them ruined. And, I have to say that next time my reef sandals will be handy and I will not be walking on the beach sand again. The sand was a natural reflector to the clear blue sky that we had encountered that day. It was just absorbing every bit of heat possible.
So tips, wear your sunscreen, dress comfortably, and if you can’t… try and wear proper attire to keep you cool at least or bring the perfect H2o solution 🙂
So until I get to post about this beautiful union, here is the wedding video slideshow of this Wrightsville Beach Wedding that I got to share with the bride and groom, and a few little images in between.
