Kyle & Paige Chapin | 4.28.18
Wedding jitters are a real thing.
And at the Chapin wedding, hubby was so excited he accidentally said “I do” before the officiant could finish his sentence. But to be fair, the two were split for nine months while Kyle was deployed to Guantanamo Bay with the United States Coast Guard.
“It was so sweet, emotional, and filled with laughter because we are both goof balls,” says Paige Chapin. “Seeing Kyle’s face as I walked down the aisle and knowing that I was finally marrying my best friend [was one of my favorite memories].”
In 2017, after Kyle returned from deployment in February, the two spent March 22 hiking Linville Falls, where Kyle got down on one knee and proposed with his grandmother’s ring.
Paige wanted their wedding to reflect more of her North Carolina roots while Kyle wanted them to reflect his Florida ones, so the two agreed to compromise and planned a rustic coastal themed wedding. Held at the Neuse Breeze in Havelock, North Carolina, the day included a beautiful flower arch with chandelier that they stood under during the ceremony, and oyster shells with guests names on each table during the reception instead of place cards. Their color scheme included blush pink with cameo gold with navy.
The two were wed on Saturday, April, 28, 2018 in front of roughly 100 people. And throughout their special day, there were other sweet details, too.
“I also have a very talented friend who handmade our unity rope and board for our unity ceremony. That’s hanging in our house now and I love it!” Paige explains. “The dance with my Dad was to “Landslide” and even though he’s a terrible singer, he sang to me as we danced. It was just a really sweet moment.”
Paige wore a Justin Alexander gown from their Sincerity Collection, and the two honeymooned in Italy.
