Memorial Day Wedding Inspiration

Memorial Day brings about two thoughts: the men and women who faithfully and fearlessly have served and continue to serve our country and the opportunity to relax and spend time with loved ones.

Inspired by favorite memories of the cherished holiday, vendor fam Amy of Style by Design conceptualized a relaxed beach wedding gathering. By acknowledging our strong local military presence while also highlighting the family traditions that she holds dear to her heart, she pulled inspiration from the warmth of the natural light and the way it reflects off of the water, the organic textures of the ocean, and the sentimental and rare opportunity to sit back and be in the moment.

Right along the shores of Virginia Beach, this exclusive Tidewater and Tulle stylized shoot gives a beautifully subtle nod to Memorial Day through the lovely visuals of Macon Photography, a deliciously naked coastal cake from Patti Cakes, draping organic florals from Roost Flowers, textured sea fan-inspired stationery and furniture from Styled Decor, a flowy lace gown from Pure English Couture Bridal, a soft gray tablecloth from Distinctive Event Rentals, and the beauty stylings of Prim and Proper.

Add that all up with a handsome Navy groom in his dress uniform and his radiant bride in glowy summer light... and well, that's definitely something to celebrate this holiday.

Style by Design and Roost Flowers are Tidewater and Tulle Vendor Fam.
