#TBT Wedding - Nautical Twist

Nautical is a pretty popular theme for Outer Banks weddings but this #TBT put twist on the traditional nautical and opted for sailboats instead of anchors. They still had all the traditional nautical elements - blue & white stripes, starfish, nautical rope knots but the sailboat centerpieces were a neat addition to the theme!


Happy Planning!

#TBT No words...

There are no words to describe the beauty of this #TBT wedding, the last of September 2013. Allison & Dan are two beautiful people and the wedding they had here at the Club was just indescribable. I'll let the pictures do the talking on this one...

Happy Planning!

#TBT Here Comes the Sun

Happy #TBT - some weddings just bring back the best memories and this is one of them! The whole day during setup of this September 28th, 2013 wedding was overcast & dreary and as we headed out to the ceremony it looked to stay the same throughout. Right as the bride began her walk down the aisle though, I kid you not, the sun burst through the clouds! I couldn't believe my eyes so I snapped a photo (see below) and what beautiful pictures it made! See the professional version in Sarah Keenan Creative's blog post here - http://www.sarahkeenancreative.com/blog/the-chick-wedding-the-currituck-club-outer-banks-wedding-photography/ - Sarah is such a joy to work with and so were this bride & groom! Their love was infectious!

Happy Planning!

#TBT Soundfront with a Twist

This week's #TBT features another September 2013 wedding and a unique ceremony setup! Since our soundfront ceremony location was created in 2012, we've done all sorts of ceremony setups based on our brides' visions, but this wedding was the first (and so far the only) to ask us to face the chairs towards the live oak tree instead of the sound! Although an unusual request, it was beautiful! Most of the time we aren't happy about rain on someones wedding day but this one was an exception - the tree was hung with mason jar votives and because a rain storm had come through just before ceremony time, you could really see the candles and the romantic vibe they created! Had it been bright & sunny, the effect would have been lost! Enjoy my photos from below but also check out Amy Stanley of Style by Design's blog post - she got some great shots while setting up and has some of Coastal Shots featured too! http://sbdva.com/outer-banks-wedding-katie-mike/

Happy Planning!

#TBT Bistro Lights Galore!

One of our obsessions at The Currituck Club is Bistro Lights - although normal during the day, they transform a space in the evening! If you want your wedding to feel romantic and like a true "destination wedding" take a look at what Bistro Lights can do! This #TBT September 14th, 2013 is one of our favorite examples! I may have gone a little overboard on the pictures with this one but it was tough to narrow it down to just 7 to share!

Happy Planning!
