Brittony & Cody
The Flyway Lodge Wedding
April 21st, 2018
I can’t hardly wait to show you this beautiful Flyway Lodge Wedding! TRUE STORY: When I first recieved her inquiry email, I had to do a double take! Brittony’s inquiry had read that her wedding to Cody would take place at The Flyway Lodge in Knotts Island, North Carolina – out near the Outer Banks. I had to pinch myself! I absolutely LOVE what I do…and to be able to photograph a wedding near the coast, especially at a GORGEOUS venue like the Flyway Lodge…needless to say, I was SUPER excited!!
It wasn’t until meeting them that I was even more excited to get to photograph their very first day of marriage even more!! …being by the coast was just a bonus! 🙂 Brittony and Cody had been together for a little over 4 years and love going to the beach, especially the Outer Banks! So it was fitting that a wedding near the Outer Banks would be the best plan for their wedding!
Brittony and Cody are two of the nicest people! Brittony such a sweetheart and absolutely beautiful! (Y’all just wait ’til you see her! She’s breathtaking!!) She also just so happens to be a police officer, so she’s got beauty and a badge! 🙂 When we first arrived to the rehearsal dinner on Friday night before the wedding, Cody walked up to us and gave me the biggest hug! He thanked us for being there and even called me “ma’am” over and over! I quickly corrected him, but I think it just goes to show you how sweet and respectful they are!
Their wedding day was just as sweet as they were! It was also a huge testament of how much they are loved by their families and friends. I don’t think I ever saw either of Brittony or Cody’s Mama’s NOT working! They were always working, setting out decorations, hanging something, or this that and the other! They worked so hard to give Brittony and Cody such a special day and it was truly such a sweet sight to see two families come together to pull off such a wonderful wedding! Speaking of which, the venue The Flyway Lodge even belonged to a friend of the family’s! So when I say that their families AND friends were a HUGE part of the wedding day…I mean it!! 🙂
I can’t wait for you to see their incredible wedding day at The Flyway Lodge! It’s truly such a beautiful wedding and I can’t wait for you to see it! Enjoy!
This painting was in the room of the bridal suite and I took it down to shoot details. I thought that it would be neat to include in a detail picture or two, paying homage to the fact that Flyway Lodge is an old duck hunting lodge. I didn’t think I’d love it as much as I do, but it’s definitely a favorite of mine! Isn’t it funny how sometimes some of the craziest ideas are the things you’ll love!?! Time for Brittony to get ready! Her Mama sewed one of her police patches into her dress! I love little details like that! First Look with her sweet Daddy! His reaction was priceless!! Brittony’s bouquet had a little yellow daffodil in it in honor and memory of her Grandpa! This flower girl was the CUTEST! She had so much fun spinning around like a Princess! It was fun to watch her take in all of the aspects of the wedding day! She was loving it!! One of these days, she’ll be the BRIDE! 🙂
Cody reading his vows for a little moment before the ceremony. The paper his vows were written on got wet sometime throughout the day so all of the ink was smeared! I’m surprised he could read them! The ceremony took place right on the sound. It was absolutely breathtaking and so peaceful! CELEBRATE the new MR. & MRS. TUCKER! HOORAY! LOVED these shots! They were SO much fun! Ahh! This dock was a little on the unsteady side…but I’m SO GLAD we took some portraits by the water! Cody and Brittony LOVE to fish, so I thought being by the water (especially on a dock…) was fitting!! This reception space was GORGEOUS! The building was built in the 1920’s and was used for sheep and horses! How cool! I love venues with lots of cool history! THAT. CAKE. Ring Bearer Paxton got ahold of the mic! Cheers to Mr. & Mrs.!!
The bouquet and garter toss catchers are actually getting married in June 2018! It was destiny!!! A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Brittony and Cody! It was such an honor to document your wedding day and your very first day as husband and wife! Believe me, it only gets BETTER from here! Congrats you guys! Love y’all!
