A Colorful & Intimate Yacht Wedding in North Carolina

I have goodie for you that will hopefully make your day brighter! I love, love, love this beaut-tee-ful bright and colorful wedding that took place along the Intracoastal Waterway in North Carolina!!  The yacht, the flip flops, the DRESS- oh my!! All to die for. The couple first had a private ceremony aboard the father of the bride’s yacht and sailed for a few hours before docking where the couple was greeted with over 100 extended family & friends to party the night away. I love Lauren & Kevin Millard from KMI Photography for sending this gorgeous wedding my way!

From the oceanside bride, Missy: Brandon and I are very laid back people. My favorite place in life is sitting on the dock at Wrightsville Beach so what better place than to have our reception at the dock. Our number one priority was laid back and fun for our wedding. The men wore shorts and long sleeve button down vineyard vine shirts. The girls wore summer dresses. My dress was a short wedding gown. All outfits were complete with rainbow flip flops. We wanted it to be bright, fun, and beachy colors. We had glow in the dark necklaces, bracelets, and rings to spice up the reception once it got dark. We just wanted everyone to leave saying that it was the most fun and comfortable wedding they had ever been too. Everyone danced and loved the liquor luge. Some of our friends said they didnt even know there was a tropical storm going on outside the tent because they were having so much fun. Our ceremony was on my dad’s new 57 Selene Trawler, top speed is 8 miles per hour. Neither one of us like to have any attention on ourselves so we figured just our families on the boat for our vows would be perfect. We both love nothing more than cruising around on the boat with a drink in our hand right before sunset. We cruised around for almost 2 hours and said our vows. Then we drove back to our dock where our reception had already started. 100 friends and family were there to welcome us back and Mr. and Mrs. White.

And the pretty pics to go along with the details…
