Merry and Trae celebrated their vows on a beautiful sunny day overlooking the Atlantic Ocean surrounded by their family and friends. For the couple, the Outer Banks has always been a family destination. Since their family owns a house here, they found themselves visiting quite often. Merry’s sister Megan even got married at Sanderling Resort in 2012. Although at the same location, each wedding was different and magically unique.
Following the ceremony, guests began making their way back to the Soundside Pavilion for cocktail hour and the reception. Bells & Whistles designed a breathtaking tree surrounded by blush and coral florals. Ribbons hung from the tree tied to the escort cards for the guests. The Pavilion was full of a gorgeous mixture of pastel colors, complimenting the coastal themed bridesmaids dresses perfectly. A local OBX favorite band, The Crowd, had the guests on the dance floor all night long! Thanks to Andrew & Tianna Photography for capturing the beauty and magic of Merry and Trae’s special day!
