This Topsail Island engagement session is beautiful! This happy couple, Nicole and Nick, walked along the beach and dipped their toes in the water. While enjoying romantic moments along this North Carolina beach, they were photographed by Eric from Eric Boneske Photography. Sunsets, lasting impressions, and more from the bride…

Topsail Island Engagement Session

Nicole tells us, “Nick’s grandfather was a marine at camp Lejeune when he met Nick’s grandmother, a local from Wilmington. Years later Nick’s family bought a vacation home in Topsail and have been visiting since Nick was a little boy. Nick first took me to Topsail a year into our relationship and I immediately fell in love with the place. Since we have decided to get married in my hometown of Aiken, SC, we choose Topsail for our engagement session because it holds such a special place in both of our hearts. We couldn’t be more thrilled with how the photos turned out! We will cherish them and those sweet memories from that day for a lifetime! Thanks a million to Eric for capturing our love so beautifully.”

His and Hers Wood Wedding Ring Box >> POTD

Check out this his and hers wood wedding ring box. These wooden ring boxes are awesome! They’re handcrafted by Will from End Grain Wood Shoppe. Will says, “This pair of wedding ring bearer pillow boxes would be a perfect addition to a woodland wedding. Each wood ring box has been cut from a branch of Sierra Nevada reclaimed wood. The wood boxes have been oiled to enhance their natural beauty. Then His and Hers have been wood branded into the top of the wedding ring boxes.” What do you think about this photo of the day?

Don’t Let it Fall! BIG Wedding Jenga >> POTD

Don’t let it fall! This big wedding Jenga photo is terrific. This giant size tumble tower is a hit among party guests for receptions and especially a way to keep all the kids (even the big ones) having fun! The blocks were tumbling just as Tamara from Silver Thumb Photography captured the guests’ reaction. The couple Meghan and John definitely know how to throw a party!
