Cape Hatteras Wedding | Monica & Josh

This Cape Hatteras Wedding holds a special place in my heart- because it’s my little sister’s wedding!

Growing up, I never really thought about marriage…didn’t have my dream wedding planned out, never played bride and groom dress up, and really never even entertained the idea of ever being married.  Which in turn means I NEVER thought about the fact that my little sister would someday get married too.  Well this past fall, that day came and I was lucky to play the roles of Maid of Honor, Wedding Coordinator, Florist, Graphic Designer, Makeup Artist, and Photographer.  Oh!  And I was 5 months pregnant.  I’m not even kidding…she’s lucky I love her!

Monica and Josh have been dating for yearssss…they even have a daughter together, my beautiful niece Lilliana, named after our great grandmother (my daughter is named after our grandmother–we like tradition!).  Josh is a great father and his level-headed easy-going personality perfectly balance out my sister’s goofy sense of humor and OCD cleanliness (we Moses kids are all freaks.)  We were happy to finally add him to the family!  Here are some pictures from their big day this past September.

Me doing her makeup…and putting on her shoes.

Monica all dressed with her beachy bouquet.


The groom/groomsmen and bride/bridesmaids…attempting to make a bouquet heart (fail.)


The ceremony set-up with an amazing driftwood arch my parents made!!


My dad walking my sister down the aisle.


My brother, my parents and niece, and me and my niece.


Our whole family…minus my husband who was helping disassemble everything so we didn’t get in trouble for leaving stuff on the beach!


The escort cards, displayed on an barn door that I saved from a slave house that was being torn down (no lie).


The head table centerpieces were wood boxes made from our fence that blew down in one of the hurricanes.


The second centerpiece was a metal lantern, sea fan coral, and driftwood trio.  Cookies bakes and decorated by my mom!


The cake and another shot of the bouquet.


And finally some portraits of the Knights!
