When I think of a beach house wedding, Katie & Mike’s wedding is what comes to mind! They threw an epic wedding bash last Spring at the Beach King event home in Nags Head and despite the windy weather that day, it was perfect!
The ladies took over the top level of the house to use as their getting ready space where the Glimmer team glammed them all up! Once everyone was ready, Island Limo shuttled the guys and then all the girls to the Bodie Island Lighthouse for Katie & Mike’s amazing first look. After some wedding party photos on the lighthouse grounds, everyone came back and we had their wedding ceremony on the beach! A wee bit breezy but still beautiful! Tony Joseph of I Do OBX Weddings officiated for the couple while Jeremy Russell played acoustic and sang for the processional & recessional!
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the Beach King backyard around the pool. Camp Cocktail was serving up craft cocktails and brews for everyone while some friends played music for everyone to enjoy.
Post-cocktail hour, guests were invited into the tent for the rest of the evening’s festivities. Flower Girls OBX transformed the tent space into a boho tropical wonderland, complete with palms & pineapples! The bamboo chairs and the sandy colored linens really completed the look. I also loved the amazing ceiling installation by Renee Landry Events! She hung boho wooden lanterns over the dance floor and it was just the cherry on top of this whole look! All the rentals were via Ocean Atlantic Event Rentals!
Mulligans catered the buffet dinner and a friend of the couple’s DJ’ed the reception – it was a PARTY! Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Katie & Mike brought with them some of their favorite cakes from back home in Maryland, Smith Island Cake! Guests enjoyed both that and Duck Donuts.
Of course I loved all the Pineapple details – on the tables, at the bar cart by the ceremony path – but one of my favorites were the pineapple shaped cookies for each guest that were ordered directly from Hawaii! So cute!
Natalie Heim Photography captured the day and you can see all the beautiful images below! Tim Barker of Barker Picture Company caught the whole day on video as well! Enjoy Katie & Mike’s highlight video as well!
