Garrett + Anna 7.5.10 | Outerbanks Wedding Photographer

Garrett and I (and our families) have been close friends for years. I pretty much consider them family. I’m so glad Garrett found Anna! Love that girl. They decided to marry during Garrett’s annual family vacation to the Outerbanks, North Carolina. We’ve been hearing about this place for years, so Jake and I were so excited when they asked us to come and photograph the event. Not only would we get to photograph their fabulous beach wedding, but we would also be able to hang out with all of them for a few days, enjoy the beach, and have ourselves a little mini vacation sans Audrey. (We love her and all, but everyone needs a little time away now and then–if only to be reminded why you love your little tyke so much!). We loved this trip (despite some travel woes which included me accidentally leaving my phone at the airport baggage claim, and our flight home being canceled due to mechanical errors), love the Quinns (and the Nettles!), and loved photographing this wedding.









The boys wanted their brother-in-law Abram to join the group shot and offered to hold him in front. I think Abram liked the idea, no?







Oh how I love these two people. Don’t they look fabulous?









I have serious photo envy for this shot that Jake captured. Isn’t is awesome?



Handsome little ring bearer












Someone nearby was setting off fireworks during their dinner (it was 4th of July weekend, afterall). How awesome is that?


Garrett’s sister-in-law Jessica made all these yummy cupcakes. Aren’t they pretty?


Looking at these photos makes me want to go back and do it all over again! Congrats Garrett and Anna. Love you guys.

    These turned out so well Meredith – beautiful. The slideshow was a great touch too…made me tear up a little. Late bishop and all. Thanks for coming – it was great to see you and Jake.
