A Formal Seaside Wedding at a Private Residence in Corolla, North Carolina

Talk about a formal seaside affair! Ryan Hart (29 and a lawyer) and Brian O'Neill (29 and a lawyer) wanted their wedding to combine a classy theme with the casualness of their beach location. With the help of wedding planner Rachel Moser from Glam and Lace, they definitely nailed it. The New Jersey natives exchanged vows in the penthouse of a private estate on the beach in Corolla, North Carolina. They fell in love with the amazing vistas of the ocean and dunes the moment they saw it. Florist Renee Landry Events added plenty of romance to the loft space by creating two blush pillars wrapped with peach and green florals to serve as the wedding arbor. Afterward, guests headed to the perfectly manicured lawn next to the beach for a delicious lobster dinner catered by Black Pelican. The highlight of the night was the amazing dance floor. Ryan and Brian had a custom crystal chandelier made to hang over the pool turned dance floor. Since the covering of the water was glass, they loved the way it shimmered with all the lighting.
