I feel like I always start the wedding post by saying how hard it was for me to pick out my favorite images from an event-packed weekend, however, I'm not sure if it's ever been more true. This past weekend was filled to the brim with moments of good times with old friends! I have included a LOT of favorite moments from the weekend below and believe me, this isn't even half of them!!
I spent the weekend celebrating the wedding of Blair Wicker and Garrett Jernigan in Manteo, NC. Both Blair and Garrett are fellow Broughton High School Alumni and it was really special for me to see my good friend Blair so happy! I met with Blair and Garrett this past August in Raleigh for some engagement photos.

The weekend started out with a bridesmaids luncheon at Pamlico Jacks in Nags Head, NC.
The talented Donna McCaskill did an incredible job on the decorations for the luncheon. Everything was perfection, from the table-settings, to the centerpieces and everything in between.
