Carol & Chuck #7 Carol & Chuck #4 (Blog)A cautionary tale for brides considering entrusting young ring bearers with wedding rings; think twice before you do. At four years old, Cole is the second of two little boys we’ve had lose rings in the sand. As guests stood with backs to the wedding party watching the bride walk down the stairs the groomsmen discretely alerted a few guests sitting in the front about the missing a ring.

Carol & Chuck #5 (Blog)The ceremony continued as planned with the bride blissfully unaware of the issue at hand as a few guests and several bystanders sifted through sand on their hands and knees retracing Cole’s path back to the stairs. When it came time to exchange rings the officiant motioned for the bride and groom to lean in and calmly explained we were missing one ring.

Carol & Chuck #3 (Blog)After reassuring the bride we would find it after the ceremony Carol nodded in agreement and the best man handed over his own ring. When the ceremony ended one of the guests flagged down a man with a metal detector to aid in the search. Unfortunately when rings fall in the sand they almost always go under making them extremely difficult to locate.

With the band safely in hand she raised her arm high in the air and announced the search was over. Everyone cheered as she made her way down the aisle and handed over the ring.

After thanking her mother-in-law profusely, the overjoyed bride turned to her new husband for the second ring exchange of the day.  Carol and Chuck are such a sweet couple.  I’m so glad this story has a happy ending!Carol & Chuck (Blog)

IMG_0442blogMeredith and Doug introduced me to a new vendorIMG_0395 which I think is worth mentioning to any bride considering a Topsail Beach wedding. The St. Regis Resort offers condo style one, two and three bedroom suites with many amenities. On the very top of the center building is The Atlantis Restaurant, an ocean front venue which lends itself well to wedding receptions. You can actually see IMG_0402-blogBest of all, even at high tide there is plenty of beachfront (which is not the case at many other locations on Topsail Island).
