North Carolina wedding photographer MCSWEEN PHOTOGRAPHY have a thing for the Carolina Coast and we are onboard with this love affair - how can you not when it looks like this? This husband and wife team tell us, "We one hundred percent love the North Carolina Mountains. But there is something about the South Carolina Coast that is oh so wonderful. We made our way to Hilton Head a few months ago to participate in this gorgeous Sailboat Wedding Editorial. We climbed aboard a gorgeous sailboat at Harbour Town Pier on the Island. VAGABOND CRUISE did an amazing job helping everyone feel welcome and comfortable. Once we got out onto the water the crew put up the sails. It was magnificent! When those sails go up it makes you feel so small. One of the best feelings in my opinion! Like standing under El Capitan in Yosemite."

Can you imagine how special it would be to hold your wedding out at sea in such a magical setting? With many weddings right now having to keep things small this is the perfect pivot from a large celebration! Add in an intimate picnic and you have the perfect setting for a superbly romantic celebration.
