Kristen & Danny's Shell Island Resort Wedding

Kristen and Danny were married at Shell Island Resort in Wrightsville Beach.  They also chose to get ready there so we took advantage of every photo opportunity, including getting the bridal parties out on the decks without letting them see each other.

First we ran from room to room to capture their wedding gifts.

Then we spent some time with each bridal party in and around the hotel.  Texting made sure that the bride and groom wouldn't see each other.

How cute are these flower girls?  The oldest was definitely leading the way.

Following the ceremony we kept everyone out on the beach to get some group shots.

Time for the reception!

I had cleared it with the bride and groom to step outside during the reception for sunset.  The best time of day for photos!

Congratulations Kristen and Danny! And special thanks to my second shooter of the day, Hayley Peters Warren of Hayley Warren Photography.  My husband had to go out of town and she was absolutely fantastic to work with!
