Elopements are near and dear to my heart. It's a little know fact that Jeffery and I eloped 9 months before our wedding in Nassau. As much as I enjoyed the celebration with our friends and family, there was something so peaceful and so...right about only having our immediate family witness our union. We walked into Duke Gardens at dusk and had a twenty minute ceremony. It was perfect for that time in our lives.
Not only is this shoot special to me because of my own history, but it's also amazing that I was able to work with some of my dearest friends in the wedding industry. Faith Teasley and Stephanie Scholl pulled together beautiful pieces for this shoot. They were inspired by oyster shells, the coastline, and the beauty of Bald Head Island. Jordan and Robyn van Dyke (and their pup) are the gorgeous models. It was great to see the beautiful Robyn in front of the camera.
Then, there is the oyster-decorated cake. I still love the subtle blue watercolor underneath the dark hues of the oysters. I'm looking forward to working on more coastal-inspired weddings in the future.
Head on over to Magnolia Rouge to read more of their thoughts for creating this gorgeous shoot.
