Meandering boardwalks, fans of palm and white wash buildings set the scene for this down-to-earth soiree. Although there were crowds of family and friends witnessing these love birds’ special day, Julia Wade Photography‘s photos suggest that it was just the happy couple on this gorgeous island soaking up every single second of the best day of their lives. Oh, and all the details! The butterfly hovering in some tall grass and the young couples’ bare toes in the sand make you appreciate what love is simply all about, which is to be present. So before you start your busy week, talk a walk in the gallery and remember to just breathe.


From Julia Wade Photography… If I could have created and wished for the perfect day, the perfect COUPLE, the perfect venue, and the perfect wedding.. this is it. Bald Head Island, known for its dripping southern Spanish moss, its glorious, quiet views of the ocean and its tucked away appeal (golf carts only please!) provided an exquisite and incredible day for Jacob and Kristin.

The best part of their wedding was not their incredible first look, or Kristin’s absolutely perfect Claire Pettibone gown, or even the amazing bridal party that was all smiles in their fabulous gray and purples.. It was Jacob and Kristin’s ability to savor each moment of their wedding. Their awareness of how special this day was and how they needed to breathe every minute. And they did.
