From the Couple...

How He Asked: "On our second day in Ireland, we were driving to the Cliffs of Moher on our way to Killarney. With be behind the wheel, I made a few unplanned detours having no idea there was a plan once we arrived at the Cliffs. We we finally arrived, Ricky started asking at ton of questions - "Where's the best view? What side is the best? Where should we go first?" We finally chose the right side to walk up right, which is where you get the best views of the Cliffs. At the top, we stopped and asked someone (Ricky had already chosen!) to take our photo. Before I could put it all together, Ricky was down on one knee with a ring made for my mother from my grandmother's wedding band asking me to marry him!" 

Why They Chose the Outer Banks: "I grew up going down tot the Outer Banks for family vacations and it has always been a special place to me. When Ricky and I started planning our wedding, we knew we wanted a location that was laid-back and welcoming, yet still elegant and refined. The Sanderling was the perfect balance." 

Wedding Inspiration: "I really wanted an 'elegant beach' wedding! We chose a combination of pink, navy and silver for our color palette and I just loved how it all came together! Not only did our wedding party wear navy, but we used navy for our tablecloths paired with sequin runners, creating a very dramatic, formal look. Our flowers were incredible! The contrast between high and low, light and bright was amazing. My bouquet was large, yet soft and romantic. We wrapped the steam in lace from my grandmother's wedding dress and pinned it with a diamond horseshoe - an Irish tradition."  

Favorite Wedding Memory: "We wanted all of our guests to feel like they were on vacation, and for them to truly feel like they were a part of our entire weekend. It meant so much to have so many of our family and friends travel to be with us during our special occasion. We started the wedding events Thursday evening with a welcome happy hour, Friday we had golf with the groom and beach yoga with the bride with the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner that night. After the wedding on Saturday, we concluded the weekend with my parents hosted a farewell brunch on Sunday!"
