Amanda and Brad pulled off the ultimate surprise as they brought their friends to the beach and then got married! The surprise started a few months ago, when Amanda first contacted me about a small elopement. Already planning a vacation with their friends, they made the decision to get married right here on the OBX, and even more fun to not let their friends in on the secret. They did let their parents in on the secret, so they had the opportunity to fly in and be a part of their special day.
The lie was pretty funny! Amanda met up with her mom and sister to get ready and off to the beach. Their friends were under the impression Amanda was out shopping and they were picking her up on the way to dinner. They all seemed a little confused as they pulled up to the beach access only to step onto the sand and realize what was going on. It was so awesome to be a part of such an amazing surprise! The only other person in on it was the friend who married them! We spent our last few minutes on the beach for bride and groom portraits before they headed off to join up with their family and friends for dinner!
