There's no dying it - when you book local vendors like To Have and To Hold OBX, Club Violin, and It's Royalty Salon Spa & Nails for your wedding, a day of endless magic is going to unfold. Meredith and Grant used the open grounds of Roanoke Island Festival Park be their reception backdrop, and enlisted Holiday House Weddings & Events to dress the Ocean Atlantic Event Rentals tent in seas of regal jewel tones. You won't be surprised this wedding was featured in the 2016 Outer Banks Bride Magazine after laying your eyes on this Neil GT Photography gallery!
From the Couple...
How They Met: "Meredith and Grand met in the Summer of 2010 while attending her borther, Chad's, wedding. (Grant and Chad attended law schools together in Charleston and the University of Florida, becoming good friends.) Shortly thereafter, Meredith and Grant began dating while living in different cities and at times different parts of the country. Ultimately, their respective careers brought them to Raleigh where their love for one another continued to flourish and they were engaged in 2014 while on vacation in San Francisco.
Why They Chose the Outer Banks: "Meredith grew up vacationing in Kitty Hawk every Summer. Close family, friends and neighbors from Clayton, NC own the house and her family still vacations there every Summer. Grant had never been to the Outer Banks before he and Meredith started dating. Once she introduced him to the Outer Banks, he immediately fell in love too!"
Wedding Inspiration: "We wanted a rustic, romantic feel to our wedding and especially playing up the beautiful, natural scenery and landscape surrounding us in Manteo."
Favorite Wedding Memory: "Everything was absolutely perfect and it wouldn't have been possible without the incredible team we had around us to make it happen!"
