Wedding Wednesday: The Rawson Wedding

The Rawson Wedding | May 12, 2018 | Photography by: Matt Lusk Photography

In the summer of 2007, Nicole Fenner and Zachary Rawson met as camp counselors at Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing. They remained friends for two years and have been together ever since. It was a day before they left for a trip to Spain, standing in their apartment surrounded by flowers, champagne and their dog Henry, that Zach proposed. 

The wedding turned into a week-long celebration on the Outer Banks as many of their friends and family rented homes so they could spend the week enjoying the beach. The couple chose a color scheme of blush, cream, French blue and gold, and instead of table numbers, they used the names of places they’d traveled together like Istanbul, Venice, Rome, Madrid, Provence and more. For the food, they wanted to blend tastes of the South, like BBQ pulled pork sliders and pecan-crusted chicken, with food from the coast, like Carolina crab cakes and shrimp cocktail. They also had a dessert bar with Duck Donuts, fruit tarts and carrot cake, complete with “his” and “hers” cocktails: an Old Fashioned and a Mojito. It was an amazing opportunity to have everyone in one place, and they loved every minute.
