The Ocean Club at Atlantic Beach: Courtney + Thomas

Everyone expected the day to be filled with laughter, incredible food, great people, and good music. That's what you go to a wedding for. No one expected the weather to play a factor in the day. Unfortunately Courtney and Thomas were unable to use the beach as the location for their cocktail hour and BBQ as planned.  However we managed to take some amazing photos, despite the sand and wind whipping us in the face. I actually liked the effect the wind gave to Courtney's dress. The wind presented life and motion in the dress that made it easier to photograph. It also made the couple laugh every time it covered the bride's face. This helped to produce genuine smiles that I know they will appreciate when they look at their wedding album years to come. So I owe a big thank you to the wind for helping me show my bride and groom's playful side.
