We learned a few weeks ago that Ashley and Carter were the winners of our Outer Banks Wedding Expo Giveaway. This super cute couple won 50% off of any of our wedding packages. Since the drawing, I have had the best time getting to know this couple and their families! I asked Ashley and Carter to send me a quick shot of the two of them along with a little bio to share with our readers on who they are, how they met, etc. Well, they did just that…and, they added a fun spin on the idea.
So thank you, Ashley and Carter!! We can’t wait for the big day 🙂
Introducing the Winners!!
