Beaufort Hotel Wedding | Beaufort, North Carolina
Jessica and Nick’s wedding was the epitome of a family affair. Joined by their three beautiful children, the bride and groom made sure to include the kids in every step of the big day. While Jessica had a first look with her son, Nick did the same with his two daughters. The kids were all part of the ceremony and even joined in for bride and groom portraits. At the reception, Nick had a special dance with the girls and the family all joined together for the cake cutting.
The lovely couple met when Jessica was working at a restaurant. Nick used to come sit at the bar almost everyday and Jessica would give him and his buddy’s free pie since they were Marines! After being friends for a while, Jessica and Nick went on their first date accompanied by Jessica’s son.
Located in Beaufort, North Carolina, on the southernmost tip of the Outer Banks, the Beaufort Hotel sits directly on Taylor’s Creek with views of the Rachel Carson Reserve, home to over 30 wild horses. While taking portraits at sunset we even saw a few dolphins swimming in the waters nearby!
Congratulations to the entire Bowling family!
