The OBX has always been a special place for both April and Michael so it was an easy decision when it came time to plan their wedding.
The couple traveled down from Hampton, VA to the Outer Banks for their wedding. April says, “I grew up vacationing there every summer with my family, Michael grew up fishing and surfing down there every chance he got, and once we started dating, we spent a lot of time down there as well. We LOVE the beach, surfing, fishing, scuba diving, and the OBX is just so special.”
Even with the meaningful location, that wasn’t April’s most memorable part of her day. That moment belonged to her new husband. She says, “After almost 6 years of being with Michael, watching him say his vows to me with a quivering voice and misty eyes. Never thought I’d see the day where he got even the slightest bit emotional….I’ll never forget that.”
April received a practical piece of advice that worked well for her. She says, “This may sound weird, but the best piece of advice I received was making an email address specifically for the wedding. You get bombarded by so many vendors, it was such a nice thing to have a separate account for all wedding related emails!”
