Kristen + Andy are those people you meet once and you just know that if you lived in the same city, you’d be best friends. We clicked as soon as we got to know them via email, and then over coffee a year ago when they were visiting NC with Kristen’s sweet mom, planning their wedding. I was anticipating their Bald Head Island wedding along with them, and I reveled in the long emails Kristen and I would exchange when she’d fill me in on their lives and I’d share news about our business or my pregnancy. We quickly realized that filming their wedding would be capturing the marriage of two friends, and felt so lucky to be in that role.
Months later, it’s K+A’s wedding weekend and our arrival on Bald Head. In between their rehearsal and rehearsal dinner Andy + Kristen made a quick trip by our cottage to meet Pax, welcome us to the island and share some fun Ohio gifts. On THEIR big weekend, they were thinking about us. And that’s just the type of people they are. It’s why we think they are so swell!
Kristen + Andy,
Thanks for being our pals from afar, for cheering us on as our business has grown, and for sharing life with us. We are moved by the words you shared with each other on your wedding day and inspired by the way you look at each other and the respect you have for one another. Thanks for being great role models for us! And if you decide to make a move to NC, we’ll be your first best friends!
