A Virginia Yacht and Golf Club Wedding by Andi Grant Photography

We love this Virginia wedding captured by Andi Grant Photography, because a little rain couldn’t stop the beautiful ceremony of Shawn and Dex. Despite the cloudy skies, the purple and green color scheme of the wedding were still bold and beautiful and the bride looked stunning (love the braid in her hair)!

From the photographer, Andi Grant:

This event was a gorgeous tent wedding by the water. The groomsmen arrived on a boat, there were tons of flowers, an Excalibur was their getaway car, and the rain during their ceremony made everything even more wonderful.

A Sweet North Carolina Wedding by RJSTILLS

It’s an art when photography is used to tell a story, and in these few images I feel like I know this beautiful couple and was there for their perfect day. Simple, sweet and full of love (and style), this is a wedding that truly makes our hearts smile.

From the photographer, Rusty, of RJSTILLS:

Pete & Kristen are salt-of-the-earth souls who just make you encouraged. They effortlessly cause you to, simply put, believe in marriage. They’re easy-going and easy-living and easy to love. And they took no less than one month to get in a car packed to the brim with wedding details, travel from one coast to the other, stop a few places to camp-out and visit with dear ones in between, and wed next to the ocean in one of the more beautiful ceremonies I’ve watched.

Congratulations, Pete and Kristen!

A Handmade New Jersey wedding by Jaye Kogut Photography

It’s Monday!!! I don’t know about you, but after an extremely busy weekend, it’s nice to sit and enjoy some amazing photos (thanks Jaye Kogut Photography) of a gorgeous wedding, and this one is right down our alley. Not only is it in New Jersey, our home state, but there are also so many handmade items that make us swoon. Just look at those bridesmaids bracelets!

From the creative bride, Teresa:

My inspiration was a blue bird I saw one morning sitting on my parents deck singing the most beautiful song to its mate. I love birds because most of them keep the same mate for life. And hearing the music the blue bird sang that morning just reminded me of the beautiful music Rob and I have made since we have been together. The cameo broach I gave my sister for her MOH bouquet I found looking on Etsy and it completely just gave me the feeling on me and her when I saw it. I knew I wanted her bouquet to stand out and I thought that broach just completely read “sisters” with the cameo of the two girls next to each other with whispy flowing hair and the other girl with the bird on her shoulder. My Earrings and bracelet from LolamBridal on Etsy BUT my inspiration for the earrings and bracelet came from the strand of pearls my grandmother left when she passed. She wanted all of her grand daughters to wear the pearls on their wedding day as she wore them on hers.


Congratulations, Teresa and Rob!

Ready for some truly gorgeous images? Here’s something a little different for you, a styled shoot designed to showcase a beautiful venue in North Carolina, Brick Landing. It is hard not to find inspiration in these images, from the stunning dress and amazing bouquet to the perfect location and romantic photography.

From the photographer, Austin, at Blueberry Fusion:

We were recently contracted to help with marketing materials for a new, yet old, venue: Brick Landing. The venue has re-opened for weddings in Ocean Isle Beach and is drop-dead gorgeous! We were lucky enough to work with some very talented vendors for this bridal shoot including BAO Events, Fiore Fine Flowers, wardrobe by Coastal Knot, and hair/make-up by Katelynn Derengowski. And who’s that stunning bride? Kelsey Childers did a phenomenal job and made our life easy behind the lens!

A Wine Inspired Virginia Wedding by Katelyn James Photography

Good morning, East Coast Brides! We are thrilled to share this beautiful and classy Virginia Wedding. Captured by the talented Katelyn James Photography and inspired by wine, we love the combination of navy, pink, and turquoise, especially in the bridesmaids attire. Perfection!

From the photographer, Katelyn James:

Joe and Kathleen tie the knot in Colonial Williamsburg Virginia and they theme fit in so perfectly with their surroundings. Their whole day was “Wine Inspired”. The corks in the centerpieces, the wine barrel cake stand, the cork monograms and the customized centerpieces displaying their favorite wines and a story for each tied everything together. It was a beautiful day!!
