When Julia came in for her bridal consultation she told us she was not afraid of color, and wanted a bright and vibrant wedding. So as the saying goes, ask and you shall receive! The vibrant array of pinks, yellows, corals, oranges and greens made for the perfect beachside bouquet. Lush peonies, ranunculus, garden roses, protea, succulents and hanging pepper berry was designed into her dream bouquet.
They exchanged their vows in the gorgeous First Presbyterian Church with a grand alter arrangement front and center, and another one to greet guests as they walked into the church. Her flower girls wore matching floral crowns and held white baskets with a dainty arrangement in complementing blooms.
The bride and her eleven bridesmaids all got ready for the big day at Julias mothers house at Wrightsville beach, close to the Carolina Yacht Club where the reception was held. The beach front villa has an open and relaxed feel to match Julias laid back, and oh so sweet personality. As newlyweds, the Bride & Groom entered the reception through white double doors that were adorned with a handmade garland and fresh blooms of hydrangea, roses, marigolds and hanging amaranthus.
No beach wedding is complete without a stroll by the sea, and can we just say how perfect the sunset was to end their joyous day with warm evening glow?! We are still swooning over Julia's lush bridal bouquet. Congratulations to the Newlyweds!
