Lindsay and Dan’s Real Wedding at the Coral Bay Club in Atlantic Beach

Lindsay and Dan were married at the Coral Bay Club in Atlantic Beach, NC.  Here are some of Lindsay’s thoughts about her wedding experience as well as some advice for future brides.


What surprised you about your wedding day?

I didn’t find out until the following day, but there was a downpour while we were getting ready, just before the ceremony.

What advice would you give another bride planning a wedding?

Stay relaxed and try to take in as many details and memories as possible. You blink and it will all be behind you!

Did you do an engagement session or a bridal portrait session? Why?

Engagement session-we wanted to announce our big day with a save the date.  ( To view highlights from her engagement session at the Morehead City waterfront, the Oceanana Pier, and Fort Macon, click here.)


What do you wish you had done differently on your wedding day?

Selected a different videographer or skipped it altogether.


Is there anything you’d like to share with readers about your wedding day?

It was an absolute dream come true and the memories in pictures are absolutely priceless!


Name one of your favorite images from your wedding day.

Me, my sister and matron of honor with her newborn son, Eli!!!! Also, Dan and I on the beach after the ceremony with the ocean behind us and my dress blowing in the breeze.


Lindsay was unsure if her sister would be able to make it to the wedding. Her sister’s due date was the same week as the wedding.
