Sidney and Kevin wanted a very private ceremony in Emerald Isle. After spending years as a child vacationing at her family’s beach home in the coastal town on the Outer Banks, she decided there was no better place for a small ceremony made just for the two of them. This private dock near their beach house offered a beautiful backdrop, including live oak trees that Sidney loved. Besides the officiant, the only people present were the required two witnesses: one was a professional photographer, and the other was a cousin who videoed the ceremony on her cell phone to share with the rest of the family later.
After the ceremony, the couple joined the rest of the immediate family at Riverside Restaurant in Swansboro. Riverside is another family favorite that provides a wide variety of food, from gourmet to comfort food. They even take reservations, which is rare in this area but important for special occasions.
Even if Covid had not been an issue when they were getting married, this couple would have chosen this intimate wedding as the perfect match for their personalities.
