Our Destination Wedding

To say our wedding was interesting is an understatement. We planned a small ceremony and reception at The Inn on Pamlico Sound in Buxton, NC. It was supposed to be an easy 7 hour drive for all of our guests. But then Hurricane Irene hit and washed out the only road to get on to Hatteras Island. We quickly scrambled to make ferry reservations after the island was open to visitors. Now it was a nine hour drive and four hours on a ferry. Of course it rained and there were a ton of other minor problems but we just shrugged it off and had a great time!

I can't thank everyone who made the trip enough. Beth and I felt so honored that so many people sacrificed their time and braved the rain, flood, ferries and mosquitos to join us.

The calm before one of the many storms.

The Inn where we had our wedding and spent a few days was host to many local people who lost their homes and workers who came to the island to help. We found this entry in the guest book.

I love driving on the beach.
