Designed with sparkling chandeliers, a view of the water, and bold blooms by Bells & Whistles, Erika and Andrew's wedding was the perfect fit for our 2015 Outer Banks Bride Magazine! From The Elizabethan Gardens ceremony to a reception at The Pavilion at Pirate's Cove, this Carolina native and Outer Banks vacationer hosted a wedding packed with celebrations of love, family and friends. Coastal Shots Photography captured every breathtaking moment, and we cannot wait to share a few of our favorites with you!
Erika and Andrew's Story:
How He Asked: Andrew popped the question while he and Erika were driving through a Christmas light show at the local zoo. With a stunning ring placed on her finger, Erika said, "Yes!" Their magical evening as an engaged couple ended with bottle feeding a baby tiger, and a photo-op with Santa Clause.
Favorite Wedding Memories: Erika and Andrew loved how their entire day was perfectly imperfect. From Erika forgetting to bring down her veil and stopping midway down the aisle to do so, to Granddaddy Lone Legs climbing up her dress during the ceremony, they would not change a single aspect of their wedding day!
Advice For Future Couples Tying The Knot: "Don't stress the small things," advises Erika. "At the end of the day, you'll be married to the love of your life surrounded by your closest family and friends. That, in and of itself is a fairy tale."
