Through the Cathedral Doors where Macie dolled her wedding dress, Richard victoriously fist bumped with the sea breeze as he finally took her to be his queen, his companion, his wife. Their classic black and white wedding color scheme hollered simple yet elegant ambiance. I swear under the fiery sun that shone on their most romantic day, their gallery will sweep you off your feet. Feel the romance by reading through and know how everything went so well on their wedding day. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Gaston!
The Album Story
The bride and groom were engaged in Paris, France and planned a gorgeous destination wedding at the Whalehead Club in Corolla, NC.
The Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Projects
The bride and her sister designed many of the details of this wedding from the floral place cards, the gold rimmed glasses, the slippers for guests to wear as they danced at the reception, to the flowers frozen into each ice cube!
Highlights From the Ceremony and the Reception
The bride and groom hired the Original Rhondels who performed several songs that got everyone dancing! The reception tent was lit up with uplighting and the families had a ball. The best part was seeing the bride and groom dance together and the love between them. During the first dance the groom swept her off her feet for a romantic dip and kiss. We then watched them walk away in a fairy tail horse and carriage all lit up.
Favorite Part of the Day
My favorite part of the day was seeing the bride and her dad walk through the church doors with Macie’s veil blowing behind her in the wind. It was a great shot for a perfect outdoor wedding!
A Memorable Moment
When Macie and her dad were standing at the end of the aisle waiting for the pastor to announce her being given away, the groom kept jumping forward to be beside Macie. It was as if he just couldn’t contain himself; he wanted to be near her so bad. It was incredibly adorable!
