When Sarah first described her wedding as "like a garden party at the beach," I was SOLD!!! Then she went on to describe her vision of shades of blues and greys with touches of white and lots of greenery. Aaaaand then she said she'd be wearing her mother's wedding dress and designing all of her paper goods herself (she's a professional graphic designer!). Real talk, I was like "PICK ME PICK ME PICK ME!!!"
This wedding day was an absolute dream and I can't get over how talented Sarah is! Guys, pretty much everything you see below was designed and hand-made by the bride...like EVERYTHING! The show-stopping invitation suite, signs, menus, programs, table numbers, cake topper, and YES even the incredible oyster shell escort cards! I can't get over it!
Remember Boo Radley from their engagement session? He got to walk down the aisle!
Gosh, I really loved this First Look!
This location was a dream come true!! I LOOOVE marinas, and every time I see one I just wish I could do a photo session there. Checkbox, checked!
The other man in her life! ;)
Okay, these are too cool not to point out. Sarah & Matt wrote miniature notes to every single guest in "message in a bottle" format! I should have put something next to it to show the scale, but these are itty bitty...like less than 2 inches! Love the subtle nautical hints!
Sarah and Matt, your day was INCREDIBLE! It was truly an honor to be a part of it and I'm so happy you chose me! I can't wait to show you the rest of the photos!!! <3
