June 12th was a magical day for Rachel and Pembroke's gorgeous coastal wedding. Thankful that the summer rain subsided just in time for their 5pm ceremony so we could get some golden hour shots that highlighted both the beauty of the sweetest couple and the beauty of their romantic venue on a family friend's private property in Wilmington, NC. Rachel and Pembroke met while in college at Chapel Hill and were actually supposed to get married this weekend last year, but because of Covid-19 pandemic, they opted to postpone a year so they could have all their loved ones there. It was WORTH. THE. WAIT! They also opted for a short 'n sweet ceremony that was orchestrated by their dear friend so it made the wedding that much more personalized. Rachel looked EXQUISITE in her gown and honestly, she was the most laid back bride of 2021. She was barefoot the entire night, which goes to tell you that she's too cool for anyone... except Pembroke of course.
So incredibly thankful to you two for including Sydney and I in the most special day of your life. Here's a gallery of sneak peeks that highlights a few random moments of the day... including some MAGICAL drone shots from Sydney. She whipped out her drone at the last minute when it stopped raining and it really made for some incredible scenic shots. It really is a game changer when you can have two perspectives. Pssst....Engaged couples, if you hire us, you can get drone footage of your wedding too!
More photos to come after wedding edits are complete— in the meantime, hope these sneak peeks will tide you over. Sending love to the Nash's.
