With scenic waterfront views, Harbourtowne Resort is the perfect backdrop for your special day. Meg and Marc were a beautiful couple that got to experience the whole Harbourtowne package. Their coral-themed bayside soiree was perfect for our local getaway destination. Friends and family gathered for an emotional, yet truly enchanting experience. We were happy to be a part of it. Fortunately, Carmen Wang Photography captured every breathtaking detail. More photos can be seen of Meg and Marc’s wedding on Carmen’s blog.
“We loved the wedding for many reasons: The beautiful couple, the awesome wedding with tears, smiles and laughter, the bayside view and the friendly venue staff,” said Ms. Wang. The couple chose sunset for their bridal portrait photos when the light was warm and beautiful. This, coupled with the diversity of scenic backdrops that Harbourtowne has to offer, made this wedding shoot extra special.
We congratulate Carmen Wang Photography for an outstanding job of capturing the love and excitement between these two individuals. Best wishes to newlyweds Meg and Marc!
