My Best Friend Is Married & I Brought A Camera | Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina

The title says it all! My best friend, Eric, met the love of his life, Sam, while going through training in the military. He is in the Army Reserves and she's a full time Army girl. He's the first one out of our circle of close friends to get hitched so this was pretty important for all of us. It wasn't just about Eric and Sam, that was a pretty important part, but it was also about all of us getting together for one amazing weekend at Ocean Isle Beach in North Carolina. Of course I brought my camera with to capture all of the hilarious moments from the weekend. It was so much fun I can't stop laughing as I look back over the images. There's nothing like getting all of your best friends and family members together to party and celebrate for a few days. We forgot all about work and our normal responsibilities and we just loved every moment we had. That's what a wedding should be! Forget all about the details and the formalities. There's only one reason in my book to have a wedding, and it's to be surrounded by the people you love and care about. That's what I wanted to capture just the people and the moments that brought us all together. Here's a recap of the most ridiculous weekend of 2011!

We finished off the wedding day with a shot of the moon rising as the sun set.
