Thanksgiving in NC

I can't believe it's already come and gone, but we had a blast on our trip to NC. Most of our time was spent visiting and eating, eating A LOT! Aside from some rain the first day we got there we really lucked out with the weather. It was nice and chilly, but sunny most of the days.
We took our engagement pictures on Friday evening, and the setting couldn't have been more gorgeous. It great meeting our photographer and having this time together. I can't wait to see how the photos come out--this was what the sky looked like that evening:
After taking our pictures we headed to Alex's grandmothers house for an Oyster Roast, so much fun!

On Saturday morning we woke well before the sun rose, to go duck hunting. It sounded like a good idea the night before, but let's just say this is one thing I can check off my bucket list and won't mind not doing again (at least at the crack of dawn). But, it made for some really great pics since it was so beautiful out there!

Until next time Wilmington...
