A garden wedding is always a good idea and when the Bride is as stylish as this one, it gets even better (I mean, just check out those earrings!). She was positively glowing and made sure to spread her style secrets to her bridesmaids, decked out in Jenny Yoo. Theo Milo captured all the looks and Light Cannon Films got in on the live action – see their clip below and all the pics in our Vault gallery right this way!

From Theo Milo… When your friends and family are willing to travel great distances in hurricane-force weather, you know you’ve built some great relationships. And their guests could back that up – there were many testimonies given in the speeches and the more intimate moments of the times that Camille and Josh put others first, made time for family, and prioritized the important relationships in their lives. Even when Camille moved to New York to pursue her acting career, and even when Josh began to pursue Camille (a worthy pursuit, if you ask us!), they never forgot their roots, and the people that got them there.
Amidst the lavish Spanish moss and live oaks of Airlie Gardens, and the understated brick walls of Bakery 105 in historic downtown Wilmington, all of those lasting friendships and family ties came together for one beautiful celebration. The gorgeous details, signage, candles, garlands, and sweet details were no less extravagant than what this occasion deserved, and provided the perfect twinkling, effervescent backdrop suitable for such a romance.

From Holeigh V Photography… Jacquelyn & Alex are originally from Kentucky but absolutely love the mountains and wanted a gorgeous overlook for their laid-back engagement session. They traveled to Blowing Rock, North Carolina on the Blue Ridge Parkway and after a short hike to the top, we were in awe of the view! The birds were flying over and her creamy dress flowed in the wind. By the time the sun began to set over the side of the mountain, the clouds came in and created a dramatic effect. Jacquelyn donned a gorgeous fitted lace maxi dress and crown from eucalyptus, her favorite greenery.
From the Bride… It’s a funny story how Alex and I first met because he actually got down one knee and proposed to me! He proclaimed that he had never met anyone like me and I was the ‘perfect’ girl for him. I had just moved back from NYC to my hometown Louisville, KY when my cousin invited me to go out with her and her friends to the bars. Once I arrived I was quickly introduced to everyone including Alex. We quickly found that we had a lot in common since we’ve both lived in New York.
As the night progress and the drinks flowed Alex actually proclaimed his love for me and proposed. I laughed off the proclamation and honestly didn’t think much more of the night or Alex afterwards. Months later I went back out with my cousin and ran into Alex. He was so embarrassed and admitted he never thought he would see me again and apologized for coming on too strong. We laughed about the night and began a friendship that would eventually turn into love.
Three months after the second meeting of Alex my father was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Devastated, I found myself turning to my new friend, Alex to lean on. We both quickly began to realize we were much more than friends. Alex was my saving grace throughout that time in my life and for that I am forever grateful. We dated for 2.5 years before we were engaged.
It was the weekend before Thanksgiving and we decided to put up and decorate our first Christmas tree together. Our mothers had given us our childhood ornaments so we were trading stories and showing off our favorites to each other. I turned away for a moment when Alex pointed to the tree and asked “What’s this one here?” I got up to the tree and it was an old wooden ornament that said “You for the rest of my life” with a diamond engagement ring tied around it. I looked at Alex and he was down on one knee. I honestly don’t remember much more after that as I was just so excited. He surprised me with having reservations at my favorite restaurant to celebrate. Once we arrived my mom and his parents were there to celebrate with us. It was the perfect night.
