Carlie & Phil | Jennette’s Pier Wedding | Glam & Lace

I was so honored to be a part of Carlie & Phil’s Jennette’s Pier wedding in Nags Head, North Carolina. These two, let me tell you.. The most adorable people you will ever meet… and their families (OMG!) PRECIOUS! They met me at the 2012 Outer Banks Wedding Expo and we clicked right from the start! The couple was very smart to plan their wedding early on as they had an all star team for their wedding.

Well,   I always say, “better late than never” and I am sure sticking to that saying as I plug away with blog post after blog post this week.  You see… after going through a business name change, trying to fix all of the little kinks with websites, emails,  etc etc, and still continue to run a successful business.. ahemmm… I have put aside what I am truly passionate about other than the weddings.  I love to write! If you don’t already know, I am a story teller.  I absolutely cannot give only a 2 minute synopsis on any given topic.. call it a curse, a gift, whatever… but it just is super impossible for me to do.

Ok, back to the real reason I started this post in the first place… I cannot tell you how much this couple truly touched my heart.  They were absolutely the epitome of perfect in every single way.  From their marathons they do as a couple to their love for hockey (or should I say rival love for hockey because I actually think that they liked opposing teams… but it was sure funny and cute watching them argue).   Lets just put it lightly and say that this is the couple for books.  They will be together forever! Long live Carlie and Phil in their journey of life (yes, real cheesy but you get the picture.. Need I say more?).

We kind of had a feeling that the weather forecast was going to be hit or miss on their wedding day.. and despite the change to move the ceremony indoors, It was still absolutely beautiful. Jennette’s Pier is a perfect location to have a wedding indoors because the ocean is still the backdrop for the ceremony.  Reverend Jay Bowman did a fabulous job with their ceremony and really told their story in the best way possible. Rev.  Jay  is such a great guy and must I say (and I may be biased), but he really is one of the best wedding officiants on the beach!  Holiday House Weddings and Events did a fantastic job with the decor for the ceremony and reception.  Carlie and Phil chose to have a rustic beach wedding with driftwood Elements for their ceremony.  Kim and Wes designed the most perfect driftwood arbor for the ceremony and with touches of pearls here and there to add a classy feel to the rustic event.  Carlie chose a color palette of corals, creams, and whites for her wedding colors.  I was so impressed with Carlie’s family as her dad and Phil actually made many of the elements for the wedding ceremony and reception.  They built benches for the ceremony, all of the table numbers,  card box, corn hole boards etc.. You name it and they probably built it! Everything was amazing!  Going back to Holiday House Weddings.. The reception decor was amazing.  Centerpieces were large trumpet vases with explosions of baby’s breath, candle light, and pearl accents (tying in the classic elements).  Ocean Atlantic Rentals provided all of the linens and the Dance floor.. They are always fabulous and provide terrific service to all of our brides.  Black Pelican catering provided amazing food and service to our clients! Their all time favorite appetizer is the Crab Rangoon… you will have to try it!!!  Carlie & Phil chose Just Desserts to create their cake and it did not disappoint! Melinda with Just Desserts is truly a talented individual and always provides a quality product that not only is pleasing to the eye, but it is scrumptious too!  Cafe Lachine provided delicious pies and various desserts for their dessert bar and the guests were treated to an array of yumminess for the the evening!   Daniel Pullen Photography are always amazing to work with and definitely did not disappoint with this wedding! Daniel and Kate are two extremely talented individuals and I always get excited when I know a couple has chosen them for their big day!  It cannot go without saying how beautiful everyone looked on the big day! A huge thanks to Amber and her team with Bombshells Studio! They made all the girls look fabulous on the big day!!  You could tell how much fun everyone had as they danced the night away to the music provided by DJ Bruce of I Do Entertainment..  Bruce does not disappoint at any wedding and we always enjoy working with him!
