This wedding has it all: adorable high school sweethearts, a fabulous seaside setting and an entire world of pretty styled to perfection by *21 Edenhurst. It’s basically a rustic meets nautical dream come true… and if you love to see a navy and coral color palette playing nice with mason jars and sea shells (who doesn’t?), then check out every inch of the full gallery from Ali Caudill Photography. It’s amazing.
From *21 Edenhurst… Lillian and Ricky’s wedding was one for the books. Dating as far back as the 6th grade and steady after the 10th, this was the celebration that all of their loved ones had anticipated and waited patiently for… for a long, long time. Both are about the sweetest people you’d ever want to meet, and their amazingly powerful friendship and beautiful love for each other was reflected so wonderfully in the details of their big day.
The bride chose a private rental home in Nags Head, NC which was convenient for their Northern VA guests, and also created a secondary vacation for the bride’s family who traveled from the UK to be there. The bride wanted to incorporate chevron prints in with the decor and she quickly landed on navy and coral to create a soft nautical touch. We chose twine and mason jars to incorporate her rustic vision, while also maintaining elements like seashells, beach glass, starfish and other pieces to find a balance for the location, all at a reasonable budget. The intimate setting of a private rental home allowed for many of the guests to stay overnight extending the party long after the vendors had left. We had a great time creating special touches like the starfish seating chart and the Photo Booth backdrop for the lovebirds to “sail into the sunset” together.
The night was perfect, even with the crazy winds coming off the sound. The night was all about fun and laughter with good music and plenty of Fireballs to go around. Congrats to the happy couple!

From A.J. Dunlap Photography… This adorable tented beach wedding that took place on March 29th. The bride wore a J.Crew gown, and her girls had on the most adorable teal dresses! The guys were dressed to fit a beach club in khakis and blazers. From the colorful invites, to the sparkly Kate Spade shoes, and party dress the bride wore, it was a day full of style and fun.
Their ceremony took place under a huge white tent, adorned with a chandelier and wine barrels. Instead of the traditional guest book, they had guests sign a bench for them to keep at their home after the wedding! Moving inside for the reception, it was a lovely & simple beach club set up, with our favorite detail being the pie bar in lieu of a cake.

Every heart rings true for the red, white, and blue! This couple decided not only to show off how happy they are to be with each other, but also how proud they are to be involved with the military. With the help of Ashley + David Photography, they set a scene full of red, white, and blue with cute as can be vintage Americana accents like and old film camera and bottled soda.

… It was a gorgeous day for Trish and Richard’s engagement session picnic. Richard currently serves in the military and Trish is from a military family, so they wanted to incorporate a patriotic theme into their engagement session and wedding. Keeping their ‘Vintage Americana’ theme in mind, we did our best to work in as much red, white, and blue as we could find! These two were lovely to work with though – completely natural and very much in love! :)
