Chic Beach Wedding at Sanderling Resort
This romantic and nautical beach wedding features a nod to classic beach detailing like coral and sandalwoods.
With a dreamy beach backdrop, photographer Genevieve Stewart Photography captured not only the loving couple, but the gorgeous light as it touched the wedding pavilion at Sanderling Resort. This chic beach wedding held on the Outer Banks was designed to perfection with coral, succulents, sandalwood and blush arrangements, and we've got all the beachy details sitting right here.

From Sanderling Resort... When you look back on all the brides you've be able to send down the aisle, the ones you have poured your heart out into pleasing, the ones you have stayed up countless nights striving for the perfect timeline- even these pale in comparison to the absolutely divine bride we had the honor of marrying at our resort. A true Carrie, she could have walked right off of the streets in NYC with Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte. Can we start by saying... that bouquet -- the simple perfection it was with her dress would have pleased the highest of wedding gods. The one detail that completed the ensemble was the immaculate Christian Dior shoes we were swooning over. In addition to Comanche's wedding rings, she wore her mother's vintage dinner ring, which was an extremely special detail to her. The groom wore his Green Bay Packers cuff links for a little luck. We were blessed with the most romantic light for their couple shots immediately following their ceremony, and the shots Genevieve Stewart got was able to capture blew us away. The reception was a champagne haven, their favorite. Blush sequined linens with rustic wooden tables, dotted with lush air plants, soft pink blooms, and creamy white coral pieces. After this crowd gave new meaning to "dancing the night away," the newly weds arranged to have a late night bacon bar for their guests to munch on before the after party.

From the Bride...  As for the ceremony itself - we were aiming for an "intimate" wedding of 80 people, the majority traveling from NY, CA and WI (even England) - with an estimated 90% of our guests visiting the Outer Banks for the very first time. We were very excited to introduce/share this beautiful location with everyone. In lieu of a traditional wedding party (quite simply, it was too difficult to choose from a number of close friends) we opted to have our parents not only walk us down the aisle but stand up with us, as our good friend Antony Ainsworth officiated our marriage ceremony. One of our favorite moments of the reception was the enthusiastic reaction [understatement!] to our rolling out the Bacon Bar towards the end of the evening. As if the Sanderling Chefs and wedding cake [Melissa Gregory] had not already exceeded our expectations, there was a mad rush to the table overflowing with pork products - both sweet and savory. Our friends and family are still talking about it!
