From the brides: We started our wedding adventure with a group called Cycle North Carolina which biked from the mountains to the beach of this beautiful state. It took us 7 days and 395 miles to reach the most exciting day of our life, our wedding day. Once we reached the finish line in Corolla, North Carolina where family and close friends waited to greet us, we all traveled to the wedding location, a beach house in Nags Head. A weekend full of love, celebration, sand, sunrises, and an ocean front view was a perfect combination for our wonderful event.
We knew from the beginning of our wedding planning we wanted an intimate setting and a unique experience. This beach house certainly did the trick. It was a perfect way to spend time with those we care about most.
The day and weather could not have been better. Love and joy was seeping out from everywhere. Our beautiful blue wedding dresses stood out amongst our guests, who were asked to wear white. The wind, with it’s gentle touch, added to the movement of positive energy and happiness that surrounded us. The celebration even continued into the next day. As all our family and friends probably would have guessed considering how we began our wedding experience, the celebration was concluded with a bicycle ride off into the world as a newlywed couple and a just married sign. You see, just because the North Carolina law currently says this same-sex love and marriage will not be recognized does not mean it is not recognized by the people who really matter to us. Love is love.
