Jessica and Jessie wanted a simple southern wedding that was attended by their closest friends and family, and on the day of their wedding they had perfect weather for their ceremony and reception at the Virginia Cliffe Inn.
Carrying a bouquet of dark purple and white flowers and dressed beautifully in a white gown with a small train and accessorized simply with a veil, Jessica joined her husband to be outside to exchange vows in a short ceremony in front of their family and friends. Each had two bridesmaids or groomsmen on their side, smiling happily for the couple. The bridesmaids wore a deep purple that matched Jessica's flowers, and the groomsmen wore traditional black suits with deep purple vests and ties to match the bridesmaids dresses.
Hints of the color Jessica and Jessie had chosen for their wedding could also be found around the reception, including deep purple candles and on their four tiered cake and individual cupcakes with whipped purple frosting.
Before the reception, we had time to get some great photos outside of the Virginia Cliffe Inn and the surrounding gardens. It was so easy working with Jessica and Jessie to capture the joy and love of the day, each reflected in not only their faces but in the ones of friends and family present as well.
Following the reception the newlyweds had a romantic send-off with sparklers that dazzled in the night sky and created a beautiful way for the couple to exit from their exciting and love-filled day.
Congratulations Jessica and Jessie!

Picked up a new Mudd Love Bracelet today. Why? Because each purchase of these #americanmade products helps to provide clean drinking water to children and adults in #Africa. And it's a #cute little reminder for my customers to #smile during their photo s

Amanda and James are a fun loving couple and on their wedding day, touches of their playfulness could be found everywhere. Amanda chose a beautiful flower patterned wedding dress with a small, scooping train with a small rhinestone belt accent, but it were her bright pink Converse high tops that stole the show. The floral bouquets were multi-colored and the bridesmaids all wore orange dresses that were all styled differently for every girl.
The first of April was a little chilly by the ocean for photos, but the couple happily dealt with the temperature as we took photos with a sunset as the backdrop, the wind sweeping the reeds in the sand only adding to the stunning detail.
Kings Creek Marina provided a great location for other photos earlier in the day, and the couple enjoyed a bright and sunny day at the waters edge taking photos with their wedding party, all laughing and smiling. The bright blue of the marina's exterior only added to the photos with a pop of color against Amanda's white dress and James' grey suit.
At the reception, touches that represented Amanda and James could be found all over, from a little Lego diorama featuring the couple outside of a house, to a large J + A that was done with differently colored Lego pieces as well. Even their cake featured an adorable Lego bride and groom, and had orange colored Lego pieces made of fondant circling the cake. There was even a fantastic sundae bar for guests to partake in before taking to the dance floor and joining the newlyweds as they danced the night away with their wedding party.
Congratulations Amanda and James!
