See Ya When We're Married!

Mary: Today kicks off the start to our wedding events this weekend. Tomorrow I get to marry my best friend and partner in crime. Sunday we'll be driving down to Hatteras, NC for a weeklong getaway which we are both so excited about.

Tim: In deciding where we were going for honeymoon, of course the Greek Isles, Europe, and Machu Picchu came up (we decided the latter was more of a life list rather than honeymoon list material). Hatteras — a teeny weenie little strip on the coast of North Carolina is a place I absolutely have always loved and dreamed of living, and when I approached Mary with it she casually said "Maybe you could surf fish and catch us dinner to cook," and my response was, "THAT is one of the many reasons I am marrying you, baby!"

Oh, and we get to take this guy with us too:

Both of the images in this post were taken during our photo shoot with Tori Watson of Marvelous Things Photography. We got the proofs back this week and can't wait to share more here on the blog. If you'd like to get a peek at a few more from the session, find a slew of them right here on Tori's blog.

Keep up with 17Apart's Wedding:

P.S. We'll have limited internet access while away next week (and we're not complaining), but we've got a few posts lined up to publish throughout the week highlighting some of the details we've been prepping for the wedding — hope you enjoy and see you when we get back!

P.P.S. Tim knows his way around Hatteras like the back of his hand (and of course it's not that big), but you know us — we'd love to hear your recommendations and stories for this strip of beach from those of you who've been lucky enough to pass through!


  1. Lovely photos! Wishing you a beautiful wedding day and many happy years of marriage.

    We went to Hatteras on a family trip a long time ago. I know I loved it, but can't remember specifics. Looking forward to tons of wedding and Hatteras pics!!

  2. Have a great Wedding celebration! Basil is such a lucky guy, he gets to enjoy the festivities too!

  3. Happy Wedding.
    We ♥ Hatteras. My happy place is the National Seashore just above Avon. If Buxton Lunch is still there, that's one of our faves. We didn't make it that far south last summer to confirm.

  4. So nice that Basil will be joining you. Congratulations to all. Have a lovely time.

  5. Found your blog via Tori's site! I love following Richmond bloggers and love some of your projects. Excited to follow along more!

    And congrats! :)

  6. Oh, I hope your wedding day weather is perfect, and that you come back from your honeymoon refreshed! (We're sneaking up on 11 married years next weekend ourselves.) I've heard nothing but lovely things about Hatteras!

  7. So sweet that Basil is going with you on your honeymoon! thats so adorable! Hope you have a wonderful wedding, can't wait to see the photos

  8. Here's to decades of happiness with a few surprises along the way!
