A Whimsical Corolla North Carolina Elopement
It all started with a whisper.....and maybe that whisper didn't win Ginny's heart right away, but it sure did get her attention! Ginny and Nick met unexpectedly through friends in what could only be described as a romantic comedy. However, some stories need to be shared out loud by the people who lived them, so we will just say this story ended and began with "I do!".
On a perfectly beautiful summer day in July, Nick and Ginny eloped.
Wait! It began as a family vacation in Corolla, North Carolina. The couple had some time off from their busy lives at the children's hospital in Washington, DC. Ginny's family had rented a beautiful cottage on the coast. A few friends flew in to enjoy some time together......why not get married?! Within weeks, everything had been planned. A certain blonde photographer from Virginia just happened to have an opening in her busy schedule. A yoga instructor, who is also a floral designer, just happened to have time to create the most whimsical floral melange of glorious blooms and succulents any of us had ever seen.
The weather could not have been more cooperative if they had sent in a special request to Mother Nature herself. Then there was the dress. It seemed as though it had fallen from the pages of a Midsummer Night's Dream! When everything is meant to be, it all just has a way of coming together. So on that perfect summer day, Ginny and Nick stood side by side, in front of an intimate group of family and friends (and a whole bunch of loved ones via Face Time) and vowed to love and cherish one another forever. Everyone basked in the glow of love and summer sun. Even the ring bearer couldn't contain his happiness as he tiptoed between the bride and groom, danced down the aisle, and stopped from time to time to give his momma, the maid of honor, a few hugs and cuddles. After the I dos, in true Nick and Ginny style, they celebrated their vows with doughnuts and Prosecco!
Then they were off to Currituck County's historic Whalehead Club for photos. Shoes were cast aside and smiles were contagious. Laughter rippled through the salty sea air. The sun dipped low in the sky as the couple walked off hand in hand to join everyone for their first meal as husband and wife. It was a perfect ending to a perfect day. Cheers and best wishes to Ginny and Nick!
