This perfectly peach soiree from Natalie Franke is Southern charm to a T, with a fresh nautical vibe mixed in. The bridesmaids donning Donna Morgan pop beautifully against the stunning Bride, while whole peaches stuck with glittered flags top place settings and gilded crabs make an appearance. Oh, and when you head to the gallery, make sure to start with this blue-tied fellow. Isn’t he the cutest?
From Natalie Franke…A Nautical Wedding inspired with Southern Charm + Chesapeake Living! The bride and groom took a vintage getaway car away from the ceremony to a marina where they zipped into their reception by boat! The tables at the reception were adorned with shimmer, peaches, and little golden crabs! The florals were an organic mix of soft corals, creams, and pinks! Everything about this wedding was spectacular!
No matter how hard I try, there are no words that could adequately express how incredible Kim and Andrew’s Wedding was! Rarely do you see two people so unconditionally and unequivocally in love. At any given moment throughout the day, if you looked for the bride and groom, you could expect to see Kim laughing and Andrew looking at his gorgeous wife with the biggest smile.
One of my favorite moments of their wedding, immediately after the ceremony, was when Kim surprised Andrew with a convertible ride to the docks! When we arrived at the Marina, there was a vintage boat waiting to escort the couple into their reception! It was such a sweet gesture and an amazing moment for the couple to relax together before the festivities got underway!

I’ve not yet had the chance to visit Bald Head Island. But after being entranced by this magical shoot from Rachel Red Photography and Kickstand Events, I’m thinking that adding it this secluded destination to my travel wish list might be a good idea. A bit of romance, glitz and glam fits so well with the pristine beachy backdrop of the Bald Head Island Club. Explore the gallery for even more!
From Rachel Red Photography…Some of the best wedding vendors in the Wilmington area collaborated on a romantic, fine art inspired shoot for Bald Head Island Club and their potential clients. The colors were picked directly from the decor at the Club. We went with a slightly bohemian hairstyle with braids for the bride and bridesmaid to keep things casual for the Bald Head Island feel. One of my favorite things about the island is that it is a golf cart only island. There are no cars allowed. It was important that we took a few photos with the Rolls Royce golf cart that can be rented for the wedding day instead of a getaway car. A vintage engagement ring and blueberry accents were among some of the favorite details. Jaimie designed the look with the help of Rachel Red Photography. Jaimie was also the bride model in the photos!

This adorable duo had a BIG bridal party, and I love it. I’m a more the merrier kind of gal, and the bigger the bridal party means more blooms too! Posh Floral decked out the ten pretty in pink cowgirl-booted bridesmaids with darling bouquets, the handsome groomsmen in charming boutonnieres and the flower girl in a sweet floral crown. Not to mention, even more floral goodness at the reception—see it all in the gallery from Stephanie Brazzle!
From Posh Floral…Leslie (McCombs) and Ivan Roussev met at Southern Methodist University, Ivan is from Bulgaria (and his step-father is French), Leslie is a true Texas girl, the wedding was a Texas chic with old world European. The ceremony was at Perkins Chapel on the SMU campus to tie together where the two met. Park City Club brought the different cultures together perfectly. Valerie and Valerie Wedding and Events designed the cheese/fruit/bread display, floral, and all the sweet accents (wine cork guest “book”, table numbers, etc.) to make it just lovely. Posh Floral brought in white and pink florals to match with the blush bridesmaids’ dresses, and gave the wedding and reception a soft and beautiful feel. Panini Bakery created the bride and groom cakes, including a special Gluten Free cake for the bride, and a birthday cake for her aunt! The Wonders rocked the house of 300 attendees, and kept everyone dancing! Everything was brought together and executed by Brittany Timmerman Events.
