This weekend was a whirlwind, ya’ll! We kicked off the weekend a little early by driving down to Corolla, North Carolina Thursday night for Ashley & Scott’s destination wedding on Friday! Tony and I woke up early Friday morning to drive on the Carolina shores because there, you can drive your 4×4 on the beach!! We watched the sunrise and enjoyed the beautiful weather before heading to Ashley & Scott’s beach home that the bridal party was staying at.
From our first Facetime date with Ashley, we knew that they were 100% a Costola Couple and we just HAD to photograph their destination wedding! We ended up talking about our dogs for more than half of the conversation but that’s just because Ashley get’s the dog-mom obsession!
You have to see this amazing wedding though. Ashley did ALL of the coordination and decor herself with the help of her bridal party! From the laser cut out name place cards, to the candlelit reception, she thought of every little detail! Not to mention, their wedding party was HILARIOUS! Great friends and family always make the wedding a perfect day! We even got to ride in a HUGE Hummer to the sound to catch the sunset!
A huge thank you to the following friends who made this destination wedding a dream come true for Ashley & Scott!
