Atlantic Beach, NC showed off last weekend in all its beauty for Nicole & Aarron’s Wedding at the Celebration Cottage! It was a pleasure to work with Knot a Second Thought Event Planning and Tilley’s Photography to help make this wedding day awesome! Here is a sneak peek of some of the video I captured and I can’t wait to share the full highlight video soon!
Molly’s was the recipient of a bridal session giveaway that we offered at a bridal event last year. This is such an example of how everything happens for a reason! I remember offering the session and wondering who the bride would be. When Molly won the session, she was actually only a month away from her wedding day, but she hadn’t already had a bridal session, so we chatted about her session and then a few months went by. She was ready for her bridal session and I finally got to spend the best afternoon with her and her sweet mother, hearing all about her and her new husband and her family. The best part was that it had rained really hard on her wedding day, so there wasn’t an opportunity to capture a bridal portrait on her wedding day! Talk about “meant to be!” Molly was so happy to have some lovely photos of her in her wedding dress and to add theses photos with her wedding photos, to be cherished forever! Thank you Molly for a great day!
Huzzah! Today we are revealing our updated website and sharing one of our most favorite shoots to date! A vintage boardwalk styled shoot at the Pearl and the Petal in Carolina Beach. The team at Focus on the Coast Weddings were amazing to work with. Their positive vibes and attention to detail were a breath of fresh air! Rebecca Hoeckele from Honeysuckle Events was the visionary for this shoot and I am so impressed with how well she executed every detail and also added joy to the day. I am sure any bride who books Honeysuckle Events will love working with Rebecca! Many of the pieces were provided by Martha My Dear Rentals. Martha’s pieces are so timeless and elegant and I love how versatile they are for any style of wedding and shoot. The Pearl and the Petal’s owner Desi was also the talented florist. We were in love with the colors of the bouquet and flowers on the cart. They added a vibrancy without overwhelming the pastels of the decor. The fun cake was designed by the oh so talented Creative Cake Design by Tammy Hodge. Tammy has been #1 in our books for always having the most tasty and beautiful cakes! Our wonderful models Lexi and Tyler were a dream to work with. Lexi’s dress is from Camille’s of Wilmington and it is one of my favorite dresses ever! It’s vintage lines felt so fresh and clean with the unique lace patterns. Lexi was amazing to work with. She is so talented and beautiful and I am so happy to have her as the new cover model for our website and wedding magazine for our brides (we will be blogging more about this next week). Britt Sharenow’s of Meraki Beauty, Hair and Makeup talent blew me away! Lexi has long hair and the way that Britt pinned it up you would never have known! The hair and make up was absolute perfection and I am honored to work with such talented vendors! A lot of heart and soul went into this shoot and I am so proud of how the images came out! I would love to hear your thoughts, so leave me a comment and let me know your favorite! Also, be sure to keep any eye out around Wilmington for the Focus on the Coast Wedding Magazine! It’s gorgeous!
