    Fripp Island Wedding

    From the minute we saw Fripp Island we knew it was the place we wanted to get married. Nicole was a dream to work with. She made the whole planning process so smooth and was so responsive. Our guests all had an amazing time and also fell in love with the Island. Everything was perfection.
