From Millie Holloman PhotographyEvery January, wedding professionals in Wilmington, NC gather together to host a wedding expo like no other–Courtyards and Cobblestones. The professionals are grouped into teams and assigned a wedding venue. They work together to design and create a mock wedding reception complete with all of the essentials of a real wedding day. The photos here are a collection of images from one of the teams, headed up by Salt Harbor Designs and Millie Holloman Photography. They decided to stage not only the space, but also an engagement session, wedding day couple, and inspiration shoot ahead of time. Videographer, Green Hope Productions, also joined in to shoot an inspiration video. The result became a collection of details inspired by autumn and copper, bluegrass music, and the architecture of downtown Wilmington.

From Robyn Van Dyke PhotographyKelly & Andrew’s wedding day overflowed with love and laughter as these college sweethearts said “I do” at their beautiful Alma Mater. Kelly looked absolutely stunning in her gorgeous tulle gown and radiated with grace and beauty and I loved the mint bridesmaids dresses with pops of pink and succulents in the bouquets! After they were officially announced Mr. & Mrs., they celebrated the night away at The Cookery, a beautiful restaurant in downtown Durham, where there were so many amazing details (including custom chalk art!) and beautiful southern blooms that softened the modern exposed brick and metal accents of the venue perfectly for an unforgettable, beautiful celebration!

Blue + Metallic Wedding Inspiration Shoot

When you gather together Live View StudiosMichelle Wright EventsFive Dot DesignAmy Lynne OriginalsLea Ann Belter Bridal and an ENTIRE team of talented vendors, gorgeous things are bound to follow. Inspired by Ed Sheeran’s wildly romantic song, “Thinking Out Loud” they dreamt up a shoot with calligraphy backdrops, metallic accents, floral cascades- you name it. We couldn’t possibly cover each moment of pretty, so please, please carve out time for the full gallery right here.

From Live View StudiosWe were inspired by romantic nights, with stars twinkling above as lovers wrap themselves in each others arms. They look up at the inky deep blue sky, with a million stars glowing like candles. As the night gets late and cooler, there is the promise of a rosy hued dawn soon to appear. Gazing into each others eyes, and reminded of a favorite song, she whispers “kiss me under the light of a thousand stars”.

From this setting, event designer Michelle Wright drew a color palette of mixed blues, grey, and twinkling candles set in an array of metallic elements to bring to life this elegant wedding inspiration. The varied blue colors, from the bridesmaids Jenny Yoo dress combined with a stunning blue pear shaped necklace, to the sprawling table centerpiece with assorted blue candles, and the ring box from France with dark blue velvet underneath a dazzling light blue stone – all contributed different shades of blue. Everything was set against a primarily white background for a glamorous and elegant effect. Sparkling white pears on the table added dimension to the glittering tablescape. The cake incorporated the lyrics from the Ed Sheeran song (Thinking Out Loud), with metallic accents and hand lettering, draped with a beautiful floral cascade. The Camille dress from Lea Ann Belter added both elegance and organic beauty with it’s beautiful french alencon lace details, and sweeping silk organza overskirt. The simple and elegant letterpress stationary with it’s silver lined envelope echoed the aesthetic of the overall inspiration. Inspired by the romance of the song lyrics, the ceremony backdrop is their elegantly lettered wedding vows.

From Graham Terhune… Surrounded by lush, southern countryside, Hope and Zach’s storybook wedding was punctuated by the sound of geese skimming across a sun-struck pond. The Oaks at Salem in Apex provided the ideal, picturesque backdrop for this elegant bride and her uniformed groom as they exchanged their vows under a Carolina blue sky. 

A romantic palette of blush, champagne, ivory and gold carried the vintage glamour theme from the bouquets and décor at the ceremony to the lovely centerpiece ensembles at the reception. The perfect contrasts to the soft floral hues were the deep forest green bridesmaids’ dresses and the dapper military dress uniforms of the groomsmen and ushers. Next to the bride’s stunning Maggie Sottero gown, the ultimate crowd-pleaser was the flower girl dresses which were encrusted in Swarovski crystals and blush ostrich feathers.

The one hundred and fifty guests enjoyed a buffet dinner followed by a decadent chocolate stout wedding cake dessert. The laughter and champagne flowed into the night as guests danced and celebrated the new Mr. and Mrs. The couple was chauffeured from the venue in a white Excalibur while guests waved sparklers for a truly radiant ending to their charmingly beautiful wedding day.

A Coastal North Carolina Engagement Session at Fort Fisher

Note to self: When looking for the perfect e-sesh outfit, look no further than this AH-mazing white Sabo Skirt and top! This simple engagement session shot by Melissa DeLorme Photography is absolutely timeless, which is exactly what the bride-to-be wanted. You can see more romantic moments here!


From Melissa DeLorme PhotographyChristine and Matt’s coastal North Carolina engagement session was a dream to photograph. We traveled down to Fort Fisher, to the exact spot where Matt proposed to Christine, to soak up every ounce of light. From her two piece dress to the romantic spread on the beach, I instantly fell in love with these two beautiful people. The way Christine fit perfectly into Matt’s arms and the way they were completely comfortable with each other in front of the camera made me squeal with excitement as we captured some of my favorite engagement photos to date.

From The Bride…We wanted our engagement photos to be timeless, in a location that will always have a special place in our hearts. Fort Fisher is not only beautiful, but holds countless memories for us…a walk on the rocks during our first date and the spot where Matt proposed just two years later. We couldn’t be happier with the result; the lighting was perfect, the photos are so romantic and Melissa truly captured our love for each other. After the session, we drove straight home, got in our pajamas and ordered a large pizza!
