Colorful Summer Beachside Wedding

Residing in the Windy City in the heart of America, Aubrey and Dan decided that when it came to choosing a destination for their wedding, the warm and beachy Outer Banks was the perfect spot for their celebration away from home. With family traveling from all over the country, the two aimed to create a fun and memorable wedding that doubled as an oceanside vacation for their guests.

Captured by Natalie Heim Photography, their wedding day was as romantic as it was colorful with lush pink and coral bouquets and perfect peach shades of bridesmaid dresses. Pops of tangerine and greenery added bright pops to the energetic vibe on the coastal sands of North Carolina. Ending with paper lanterns overhead as they danced the night away, Aubrey and Dan's celebration was only made more perfect by the ones who stood by their sides.

Classic Mint and Blush Wedding

Timeless and elegant, Bailee and Lucas' mint pastel and soft pink wedding is the perfect inspiration for any springtime celebration. From the white and pink bouquets full of peonies to a wedding day rainbow sweeping the sky to the mint ruffled cake to end all ruffled cakes, everything shimmered with beautiful moments, even with a little post-ceremony rain shower!

For Bailee and Lucas, the most important thing was to remember the romance of the day and to have an absolutely rockin' reception for their guests at the Inn at Warner Hall in Gloucester. Captured by Lindsay Collette and coordinated by As You Wish Events, each detail came together so that the wedding party and guests alike could relax and have fun at one of the most exciting receptions they have ever attended! The double rainbow at the end of the day simply confirmed what Bailee and Lucas already knew: this day was the promise of many wonderful years together.

Rustic Waterside Wedding on the Eastern Shore

Kristin and Damian have been together for over a decade, so when it was time to tie the knot they knew just what they wanted for their wedding day: a memorable day with their closest loved ones on the Eastern Shore. The beautifully rustic chic, Mimosa Farm, provided the perfect backdrop for a laid back, relaxed, and beautiful celebration captured by Lundy Photography.

Lush greenery was the centerpiece of their wedding day, surrounding everything from the pecan-dappled naked cake to the beautiful birch ceremony arbor that stood near the water. The shades of green complemented lilac bridesmaid dresses and tan groomsmen suits while Kristin’s floral crown and long reception farm tables gave the whimsical vibe for the event. From a dingy boat filled with craft beer to Chesapeake Bay oysters shucked nearby, we loved the unique touches the bride and groom chose to make it a casual chic wedding that is one to remember for their next journey ahead!

Classic Black and Gold Southern Wedding

With blush and neutral tones still trending in the wedding world, Taylor and Max's classic black, gold, and white color palette definitely stands out as a chic Southern celebration underneath the stars! Kim Moody Design worked with the couple to create an elegant wedding at Westover Plantation in Charles City filled with fun details like their personalized "Fun Facts" cocktail napkins and timeless traditions like burying the bourbon!

It's hard to narrow down the things we loved most at Taylor and Max’s wedding, but the clear-topped tent adorned with twinkling bistro lights and chandelier, letterpress invitations, and their unique black and white dance floor are certainly at the top of the list! Captured by Kristine Pringle Photographers, gilded centerpieces filled with white hydrangeas were perfectly paired with gold chiavari chairs and chargers. Add in an amazing dessert bar with an all-white cake, cupcakes, and 5-layer cookies, and our only disappointment is that we could not attend to partake in the deliciousness!
