Kimberly & Tom’s Wrightsville Manor Wedding


We kicked off our wedding season this year with a dream wedding at Wrightsville Manor to celebrate Kimberly and Tom’s union.  Tom looked so handsome in his heirloom Kilt, handed down from his Grandfather.  Kim was a total knockout in her Lihi Hod Dress!  The couple said their vows and tied the knot by the beautiful indoor fireplace and after the ceremony the guests enjoyed the music from the amazing Folkstone String Band.  Thank you to all the amazing vendors who made this day possible:

Featured | Focus on the Coast Weddings Magazine!

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!

Tara & Stephen’s 128 South Wedding


On of the best weddings we have ever shot, EVER!, was Tara & Stephen’s.  I will never forget bursting into tears retelling their proposal story to my husband!  Just knowing how amazing and adorable the proposal was I knew that they were something special.  I fell in love with Tara and her mother at their first consult and at Tara & Stephen’s engagement session I know I was a part of something really special.  Tara poured her heart and soul into her wedding and it is so awesome that we could capture it all in both photo and video!  They were sweet enough to share some thoughts with us:

A.  You were our absolutely favorite. Tess was incredible with make-up… I mean she worked miracles!

A.  Absolutely perfect. We couldn’t have loved you guys more. Stephen and I are still in shock that we have the photos already. It is almost overwhelming because we love each and every one so much.

A.  DIYed all of the table elements, except for putting the “flowers” wording on the pot. Everything was hand written, hand stamped, hand wax sealed, firefly lights in the globes with moss, all of the flowers (except two of the head tables – the long boxes, the garland and my bouquet.) We put together all of the flowers downstairs (white) and almost all of the ones upstairs. Sprayed all of the votives gold, came up with / created & designed the guestbook with family stories

A.  Stephen’s favorite moments were our speech / toast, our first dance, and walking down the aisle together as married couple after the ceremony.

A.  Absolutely hire a day of the event coordinator. Katie kept everything on point. Make your schedule and add thirty minutes to everything that you do! Most of all – trust your gut and only do what feels right.
Tara has also shared a lot of tips and thoughts on her personal blog here:
