jami and nick | military wedding on the riverfront | wilmington nc wedding photography

Ok, we know, we already published this season’s last wedding!  But now that we’re getting time to catch our breath here at indigosilver, we wanted to go back a step and bring you this scrumptious riverfront military wedding from last month.  We previously gave you a taste of Jami and Nick’s engagement pictures; now check out their beautiful wedding!

Preparation, ceremony, and reception all took place at the Hilton Wilmington Riverside.  If you are in the planning stages of your wedding, we always recommend that the bride and groom both get ready in the same location, if possible.  This allows us to move back and forth between the guys’ and girls’ rooms and catch all the action:

Fall is an amazing time of year to get married in Wilmington!  Beautiful weather on the historic riverfront made for a picturesque backdrop for the couple’s reveal… the only thing we didn’t plan for was the thousands of runners jogging down the boardwalk for the Beach to Battleship triathlon!  Not to worry, we had a backup plan:  To bypass the runners, we snuck Nick and Jami down onto the members-only dock for this important moment.  The usual rules just don’t seem to apply when you’re wearing a white dress!

Rawr!  (Yep, I said it.)

To continue taking advantage of the GORGEOUS weather, the ceremony was held pool side, just feet from the edge of the river.

The reception was continued indoors in the ballroom, with a view of the sunset over the river behind the sweetheart table.  Jami and Nick created a great use for their engagement pictures: They had a 20″ canvas wrap on display, and right below the canvas was a guest book we custom-designed using their favorite images from the shoot.  Their custom guest book served several purposes: their guests were able to see several images from their engagement shoot. The ample white space allowed guests to write heartfelt messages instead of just names-and-dates, which will be an awesome heirloom keepsake for the couple to enjoy.  The book can now be prominently featured on their coffee table at home, allowing them to share images with their friends for years to come.
