Bald Head Island!

PK and I had the wonderful opportunity to go to Bald Head Island for the week after our wedding. We stayed at a friend's house and enjoyed re-hashing all of the events of what seemed to be a big whirlwind of a wedding. What a needed break it was... Paul had never been, so we had so much fun exploring all parts of the island by golf cart, checking out each beach, visiting Old Baldy, and of course, relaxing.

This is my favorite picture from the week. Completely sums up the Bald Head experience.

This was the beach access ten yards from our house. These rescue stations are at each access.

We'd been on the beach for quite some time at this point.

We brought the Kayak out on this day.

House shot.

Our fun newlyweds cooler.

Waiting for me to put down the camera so he could throw me the frisbee...

Apparently, I couldn't see the flashing light on the camera to tell me when to smile.

Old Baldy. North Carolina's oldest lighthouse. Commissioned by Thomas Jefferson. Was replaced by the stronger Oak Island light. So many cool things about the history of this light.

At the top of Old Baldy. That is the BHI marina and then marshland behind me. Great kayaking there... but we were in the offseason- so not as easy to do unless you have your own boats.

Paul on his way up to the top.

After we cooked dinner, we went out exploring.

We felt good in this picture. This was the night of our first full day on BHI. We slept in, relaxed, went to the club, cooked dinner and then went exploring. At this point, Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy had arrived!

The view from the top of the house. The upstairs opened so you could look down into the living room and out from the house and see the ocean. We loved it!

Our Wedding!

Finally, I am posting some of the great pictures from the wedding. Logan Wallace was our photographer, and these are all of her photos. She was such a pleasure to work with and did an excellent job. I am starting with some pictures from the day of the wedding and the actual ceremony. The reception is below. For those of you who made it, thank you. And for those that didn't, I hope you feel a part of the fun through these snapshots.

Carolina Yacht Club, Wrightsville Beach.

Because of the gusty wind and sporadic rain, we decided to move the ceremony inside... it turned out to be gorgeous.

We weren't phased by the change of plans, and enjoyed the wedding day brunch.

Paul arriving just after I left...

My brothers doing some last minute decorating... That is Jenkins on the ladder and John supervising.

The dining area.

Kristen is sleeping off Friday night.

The hair.

Their hair.

I told my sister to play bartender while everyone arrived.

Allison arrived from Colorado a few hours before this shot. I was happy to see her!

So, are you sure you don't mind if I wear your shoes? Adam and Will looking good in pink ties.

A few words of advice.

Get this party started.

The men.

Coach's family.

Bucking Elks.

Getting a few words in before the ceremony.

Jane is cracking me up in this picture. Only head, no body.

An essential part of the process. Having a Bloody Mary much to my mother's chagrin. I wasn't going to be defeated by the white dress, or my mother for that matter... haha.

Logan was asking me to look all over the place, even down.

I put this one in here just for Tempe.

Lloyd leading us all in prayer before the service.

Walking to the aisle. This was the unofficial aisle.

The lucky ones who were sitting... this shot does not show the groundlings.

The ballroom was pretty dark, and Logan politely accepted the "no flash" rule.

What just happened?

Oh, wait! We just got married!! Let's clap for that.

Presenting Mr. and Mrs Kennedy

So here are some of the pictures from the reception. It was so hard to choose from all the pictures, so I tried to give glimpses of the events of the evening chronologically. The Holiday Band was fantastic! It will become apparent that everyone enjoyed them as you look through the photos!Mr. and Mrs.

Awaiting the first dance.

"As we sail into the mystic..."

Later, Dad busted out the Tango.

Proud parents.


Two of our most favorite people. Captains Lloyd and Cille Griffith.

A diving catch. Best picture from the night.

Taking aim.

Lindsey and Allison sporting some Wendy Perry earrings.

John getting down.

Sea Gull winds are blowing, calling me and you...

I changed into a party dress. Easier to manage when showing off our Shag.

Uncle Johnny and cousin Abbie.

The Cobb Siblings. My Aunt Catherine, Uncle Brother, and Mom.

Just bust a move.


Camp SG and SF... the first ones on the dance floor, and the last ones off.

Lee Sutton singing/playing the song he wrote for Coach... the Holiday Band backed him up.

Enjoying Lee's performance.

Coach keeping rhythm for the Holiday Band.

Chandler! In true Chandler fashion, had just arrived from her long drive from NY. The greatest part of it all is that she ended up being our chauffeur from the wedding!

Rhett showing some skills.

Its a brand new dance, its called the Cupid Shuffle...

Lydia and Allison- women that wear many hats. On this occasion, they were wedding directors.

Throw your hands up and SHOUT!

Call me, I'll explain. Another reason, I love the Holiday Band.

Wait, you mean we have to leave the party?
