Beach Weddings

This could quite possibly be our most favorite From Inspiration to Reality shoot of all time. I know we say that a lot but does it get any better than beach done so very right? The color palette? Beyond. The perfectly edited and not over done details? Spot on. The dreamy light? Perfection. Photographed by Millie, Rachel and Rebecca of Millie Holloman Photography, with design and styling by Jennifer Rose-Sandy of Salt Harbor Designs, this is going to blow your mind with oodles of seaside goodness. Can't wait? Take a look at the full gallery – we won't tell anyone you cheated.

From Jennifer Rose-Sandy of Salt Harbor Designs:

For event vendors who are located near the ocean, the beach can be both a wonderful blessing and a terrible curse. We are all so sick of starfish and sand dollars that we hope to never see them again, and we cringe when someone says "beach-themed" reception. For a long time, I have tried desperately to resist the beach and the ocean in my designs. Yet, I do truly love the sea and all that surrounds it, and it is, in fact, what originally brought me to Wilmington to begin with. So I decided with this inspiration shoot to return home and embrace the place in which I live and work.

Don't go anywhere. We have so much more to share and you won't want to miss a single detail. It's THAT good.
