Shuggies | Renee Landry Events

Love and Monster Trucks


Same Sex Couple engagement session.

We had so much fun with this couple!  We met at Dennis Anderson’s Digger’s Dungeon.  It’s the Grave Digger Monster Truck site in Currituck County, for a fun engagement session with Renee Landry Events.

We love the “I eat glitter for breakfast” shirts!  A nice juxtaposition to the monster trucks and all over dirt of the race track.

Sanctuary Vineyards Wedding | Outlaw hearts Cori

Vineyard Wedding on the OBX


We have known Cori and Outlaw for years and are over the moon for them as they have now officially said, ‘I do!”!

The couple were married this weekend at Sanctuary Vineyards in Jarvisburg, NC.  Renee Landry Events used pinks and gold glitter to glam up the place in a country chic style that worked perfectly in the vineyard.  We did a first look, where Outlaw sat in a swanky chair and was presented with a sassybuns book Cori had made for him months ago in secret!

After that, it was straight to the Vineyard for the ceremony.  The bridal party arrived in pure Currituck style, as they were driven in by tractor hayride!



Cameron, the couple’s daughter and Lucy their pup, waited to walk down the aisle together. We love the look on Cam’s face as she watches her tiny cousins go down the aisle in a John Deere tractor!






The winery was just stunning! We are such huge fans of uplighting around the room.



The couple’s dog, Lucy, loved getting in on the action. While Cori and Outlaw were dancing, she wandered around trying to get mom and dad’s attention!

Mega fun dip on their first dance! The reception was catered by Kelly’s Restaurant in Nags Head.  The Dj had everyone up and learning the ‘superman’, and the ‘nae nae’!


The Captain Entertainment provided the gorgeous LOVE letters out on the farm.



We love Lucy popping her head in the ‘O’! She was such a great doggy on her parents wedding day!

Congrats you two lovebirds! We are so happy to be able to be there and witness and document your love story!

Outer Banks Festival

A crab pot throwing contest which the men and women enjoyed – a 50 yard throw was the winner!!  This game was much harder than it looked as you had to spin around at least 3 times before launching the awkward crab pot, which meant you were rather dizzy!

Kids played in the stomped grapes-
