Taking place at the beautiful Bald Head Island, this beach inspired wedding captured by Keepsake Memories Photography is filled with some lovely details. Using subtle beach-inspired accents, the soft blue and white color palette with touches of aqua is perfect!
The bride, Rebecca, is here to give us some insight into her planning:
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
For the wedding planning I used Wedding Wire to keep track of all of my guests. It enabled me to keep track of RSVP’s, gifts received and thank you letters that were sent out. I was also able to track what meals each of my guests chose and I was also able to place them in a seating arrangement through the website. It was my go to organizational tool that I recommend to every bride and it’s free! On my wedding day I made a point to make a timeline for all the attendants so that everyone knew where to be and at what time. Even still I relied heavily on Shauna Harris, the event planner at the Bald Head Island Club. I cannot say enough good things about this amazing planner. And last, but not least my bridesmaids kept me sane and calm leading up to the ceremony.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
The most important factor for us when we were choosing a venue, was whether it felt “right” to us. My husband and I have a very laid back personality and I personally love to smile. When I stepped onto Bald Head Island I just felt at ease and Shauna was so friendly I could not wait to work with her. She even called me her “laid back bride”.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
Our inspiration for our wedding was the beach. I was raised on the Chesapeake Bay and I have always been around the water, but we particularly love the beach. Despite our beach theme, we tried to be very careful about not making it look cheesy. We wanted that more natural rustic beach look, which we attempted to incorporate in every aspect of the wedding. We love that Bald Head had that more simplistic feel, we wanted are wedding to reflect that.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
My most favorite thing about my wedding, besides my dress was the venue. I could have not asked for a more perfect setting for the most memorable day of my life. Bald Head Island is a magical place, it’s natural beauty is breathtaking.
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
My advice for other brides, stay organized and know when to ask for help. It really cuts down on stress. Also, stand your ground. If there is something you want or a look that you choose, remember it is your day!
I love the soft blue and white color palette, don’t you?
This couple drew their inspiration from the area surrounding their venue. Are any of you getting your inspiration from where your wedding is taking place?
