Our Wedding

282897

We planned a "week-long" celebration for our wedding. My wife and I rented several houses in the Salvo/OBX area for our family & friends. We would barbeque each night at a different house, and by the time our wedding day came everyone knew each other and were good friends. (Which eliminates the "introductions" at the reception.) We truly had a great time, and will always remember it. Many of our family and friends fell in love with the Outer Banks, and have already made return trips for vacation! Our beach front ceremony took place at the border of Salvo and the National Park Service drive-on beach. The beach wedding permit process was easy, but relatively expensive for a piece of paper granting "permission". We were very lucky with the weather, as it was overcast with light rain all day - finally clearing just an hour before the ceremony. Be mindful of the potential for wind, heat, & humidity during the summer! As I said, we were extremely lucky considering it was an August wedding!

Colleen was fantastic! She worked with us to create a wonderful portfolio of pictures that our friends and family are still talking about, over a year later! Colleen was personable, always reachable - if we had a question, professional, and truly captured the "spirit" of our beach wedding. My wife and I 100% recommend Collen Freye Photography!

Forrest Paddock from the Salty Gourmet was great! The food was amazing and everyone had a great time. We were able to personalize the menu, and Forrest did a fantastic job!
