Taylor and Evan's Sunday afternoon wedding at historic
Brunswick Town in Fort Anderson — Winnabow, North Carolina
This gorgeous duo was set to get married on Saturday, April 10, 2021 but a Covid pandemic had other plans so they decided to postpone it to Sunday, April 10, 2022 and it was worth. the. wait. The weather was heavenly as the sky was Carolina blue and not a cloud in the sky. Honestly, we could have used a few with the ceremony being in the middle of the afternoon but shockingly these folks did not squint—they wouldn't dare miss out on a thing even when they blinked. They were ready to treasure every moment and were loving all the sunshine!
Taylor and Evan got married at the frame of an old chapel (originally Saint Philips Church) at 1:30pm and then celebrated with a nontraditional afternoon party of good eating and drinking under a tent that was facing the water (Cape Fear River). The groom is a history buff and explained to me that Fort Anderson is a mid-19th-century Confederate fort built by major general Samuel Gibbs French during the American Civil War making it the first successful European settlement in the Cape Fear region. It was so successful that it was briefly the capital of North Carolina from 1743 to 1770 where the current governor resided. However, Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson was raided by the British troops in 1776 and never recovered. So take that fascinating history and bear it in mind as you bask in the glow of Taylor and Evan's gorgeous wedding on the grounds of this historical sanctuary.
Ps. Have to do a small business shout out to Evan and his family as they have a local oyster company called Three Little Spats Oyster Co.
