Austin + Margaret | The Surf Club Wedding

Filed in: Weddings

This wedding holds a special place in my heart! My sister Amber is really good friends with Margaret and was a bridesmaid in the wedding! I was super excited when Margaret and Austin decided to have us photograph their wedding! Margaret and Austins love story takes them back to 1999 where they met on a fishing pier. Margaret became “hooked” in college when they started dating and they have been not only been fishing partners, but best friends ever since. I hope y’all enjoy this sweet Wrightsville Beach wedding! Oh and did I mention her details are gold and blush….my absolute favorite!
