Back to reality. Bald Head Island is a little utopia. It really feels like an escape from real life with not a car in sight and everyone getting around in golf carts. There are only a few restaurants and shops on the island and everything moves at a slower pace. I can imagine that it’s a wonderful getaway for families and would be a fun summer tradition. Now, if only there was no WiFi access or cell signals…it would really be utopia!
It’s been a couple of days since I checked in so rather than give you a blow-by-blow, I’ll do photo highlights of my time on the island and of the wedding – so beautiful!
AROUND THE ISLAND
Ocean view happy hours. Cheese + crackers and wine while staring at the ocean is my idea of heaven!
Puppy overload. Three dogs and 13 people in one small house make for quite a crowd. For the record, Sullie has put herself tonight. She’s exhausted from all the playing.
Amazing weather and sunsets.
Beach time. The smile on her cute face makes my heart happy.
I love this sweet pup so much. I saw dollar signs going down the toilet as I was letting her swim and roll around in the sand after she had just been groomed but it was SO worth it!
Bridal brunch and lingerie shower on the wedding day.
Made to order omelets and crepes.
My plate – baked goods, Pineapple Chobani and a shrimp and veggie omelet. I had a crepe for dessert.
Getting the bride ready. I was with her when she chose this dress over a year ago. It was the very first one she tried on! I LOVE lace dresses.
Ceremony site at Old Baldy.
The groom waiting for his bride under Spanish moss.
College friends out in full force to celebrate.
Reunited with my long-lost suite mate from when I lived in the sorority house in college. She lives in California now!
The bride being bustled.
Shrimp and grits.
My dinner. The fish tacos were incredible!
Congratulations to my dear friend Meghan. There are not even words for how grateful I am to have her in my life. I’ve said this a million times but I will never forget Josh (the groom) telling me over a beer back in 2005 that Meghan was the girl he would marry. Seven years later and those words came true!
Father/daughter dance. So much thanks to both of the families for a wonderful wedding celebration.
