Friday the 13th was anything but unlucky for newlyweds Kris and Sara Smith, married on Hatteras Island in Buxton, N.C. on the evening of April 13th. The new Mr. and Mrs. Kris and Sara Smith exchanged vows in the presence of family and friends, against a breathtaking backdrop of a sun setting with hues of orange and red sky over the ocean’s horizon.
A Memorable Reception
Their picture-perfect ceremony was followed by an incredible and memorable reception, beginning with poolside dinner at the beach house. This Outer Banks reception area was beautifully decorated, complete with floral arrangements, a luxurious dessert table, and beautiful lighting. To combat the crisp spring air, a natural wood-fire provided plenty of warmth as guests cozied up in front of the fireplace throughout the evening.
Coastal DJ & Video provided their OBX DJ services, introducing the entire wedding party into the reception in dramatic fashion! Following dinner, father of the bride, Peter Petch, opened up the traditional toast-time, with a touching tribute to his daughter and new son-in-law. Matron of Honor Jennifer Tolle and Best Man Dustin Martin followed with stirring toasts of their own.
And Fun To Go Around!
Following the traditional cake-cutting, Kris and Sara kicked off open-dance time with the Cupid Shuffle. Shortly after, they invited all of their guests to join them… and join in they did! Nearly every guest present began a long chain along the pool to join in the celebration! This crowd really knew how to celebrate, with non-stop shaking and boogying until the close of the evening! One of the most unforgettable moments of the evening occurred when an over-exuberant Best Man, Dustin Martin, took an accidental plunge into a chilly pool. Being a good sport, Dustin actually swam a few laps before climbing out and heading for the beach-house for a change of clothes!
Later, parents of the bride, Pater and Ruth, shared a special dance dedicated in their honor and their upcoming 40th wedding anniversary! The evening was truly unforgettable, with non-stop, high-energy dance tunes throughout the evening! Coastal DJ & Video was honored to be able to be a part of Kris and Sara’s most special day in Buxton, NC, on April 13th, 2012!
