When you mix the talents of Bells & Whistles floral and event design and the epic photography skills of Neil GT Photography, serious wedding goodness is never far behind. Factor in our resort nestled between the sound and ocean, and you have all the lovely components of an insanely stunning wedding. This destination soiree epitomized everything romantic that the Outer Banks is.

Always an easy mark for a good black and white, the moments captured and forever encased in these timeless images will be ones we continually come back to. Primping with all your girls around you is unforgettable, and should be treasured. We love the flower girl looking up to the bride she will be one day- swoon!

The scrumptious and bright florals were the perfect addition to the natural landscaping of the sand dunes with the ocean sounds permeating the air. Soft and colorful, this pink and peach palette is one of our favorites from this season.

This model-worthy couple’s shots in the sand were stellar, but who could expect any less from that ravishing Vera Wang she’s wearing? The perfect pink accent of a single bow festooned bloom for the bridesmaids sealed the look with those classy navy cocktail dresses.

Everyone has the favorite detail they obsess over in a wedding- the dress, the food (usually us), the venue… and sometimes it’s the wildly radiant decor of a white clad, floral draped, candle embellished sweetheart table. Not too far second is that escort table’s pin worthy arrangement.

Light completely seeped through the sound facing windows, making this venue the most light and  dazzling sight these eyes have ever seen.

All this wedding perfection absolutely needed this seemingly never-ending display of Carolina Cupcakery’s cupcakes, the tasting of which was one part of the planning process we would have liked to partake in.

Dancing in a private gazebo over the sound with only the setting sun to remind you of the outside world? Come on, we’re drooling here.
