Dennis Wedding at Ft. Fisher
It was a beautiful June 15th wedding out at the Fort Fisher Historic site. Congratulations to the wonderful couple. The day started out great with plenty of sun. I started the day off shooting the groom and groomsmen out by the trees there at the historic site. Although it was a very bright day that day we were able to capture some great images.
After we finished up with the groomsmen photos we headed out to the Air Force Recreation area at Fort Fisher where the couple were staying to get some preparation shots. I have never been there before, but it seems great place to stay if you are in the military.
Everyone is now ready for the special moment. It is the time these two and many others in their lives have been waiting for. The ceremony was held under the trees at historic site. It was a nice decorated area with music.
I will say some of the fun things I loved about this wedding was the butterfly release and conch shell release by their minister, Shannon Mackay of Circle of Love Ceremonies. Here are some images of the gorgeous ceremony.
After the crowd leaves it is time to focus on the couple and their bridal party and get the chance to take some wonderful portraits. We started off at the historic site out by the rocks, and then moved into the tree area. The problem with the tree area is that is a heavy shadowed area, but I believe it all worked out. We then left the historic site and moved our way to the Courtyard Marriott at Carolina Beach.
After all the portraits were done it was time to join the party at the Courtyard Marriot at Carolina Beach. It was my first time shooting there, and it was a great location for weddings in the Carolina Beach area. Some of the highlights I enjoyed at this wedding was their desert layout. It was very creative. A friend of mine attended the wedding and she made an awesome Green Bay Packers theme cake. Throughout the night it was a great time with great music provided by Just Right DJ. To all the people involved thank you and congratulations to the beautiful couple.
