With Memorial Day just around the corner and days spent at the beach on the horizon, we gear up for some serious shoreline fun including gorgeous beach weddings. While Memorial day marks the beginning of summer in our minds, it is at heart about honoring our military. Fusing together a dreamy beach wedding with military flavor, a talented group of Virginia wedding vendors came together to craft a styled shoot with the most perfect of subtle red white and blue undertones photographed by Macon Photography! Working with the sea in mind, the team opted to highlight more refined details found in the ocean from stark white corals to unique & eye catching sea fans. Forgoing the often overused beach themed items, event designer Style by Design selected elements that playful evoked a sea like world from the steely blue table linen from Distinctive Event Rentals & ghost chairs from Styled Decor to barnacle style bowls filled to the brim with berries. Floral designer Roost Flowers did a stellar job putting together floral arrangements that showcased a few choice blooms while working with diverse wide leaf greens to emulate the feel of seaweed swaying in the water. Perhaps the piece to this alluring beach wedding I covet most however, is perfection in the form of the blackberry naked cake by Patti Cakes adorned with the most amazing of sea fans. There is a polish to this shoot as a whole, something that I hope serves as a blueprint to future beach weddings with the quiet grace that is the sea.
