By the Sea: Fallin & Cory in Salter Path, NC

When Cory first saw Fallin at a mutual friend’s Christmas party, he says, “My breath caught — I simply had to meet her.” Two years later, the couple was engaged.

With the help of wedding planner Zena Underwood, the couple arranged a lush beachfront affair at Bluewater Vacation Rentals’ Dream Maker home.
