Celebrating Summer

The idea for this unique shoot came from a love of outdoor fun and relaxation. We wanted to celebrate the special time when the weather breaks and we break out flip flops & swimsuits and stargaze around the campsite, bellies full of s’mores. 

The couple’s stationery was both playful and sophisticated with watercolor painted illustrations and copper foil accents. Amber Dominique Designs used canvas and kraft papers to highlight the rich colors, vintage line art and detailed map.

Rustic Decor You're Gunna Love - Bouquet?

The stunning bouquet and rugged boutonnière, carefully crafted by Ava Loren Designs appears to have been gracefully collected during a hike. Kamesha expertly combined a wide variety of plants in a harmonious blend of color, texture and large blooms.

Mad Hatter Vintage Rentals skillfully gathered a collection of lanterns, thermos and accessories that are reminiscent of vintage camping that created two irresistible areas to gather.

Beach We Be Camping

Being able to enjoy both beach and camping adventures is rare because they are not often in close proximity. However in the heart of Hampton Roads, Virginia lies a special place that features both; similar to the way a marriage unites two very different people. First Landing State Park is located in Virginia Beach and is the perfect backdrop to combine rustic and elegant components for a glamping wedding that will wow any adventure loving couple.

Rustic Beach Bride All Set To Camp

Our bride had an ethereal glow in her House of Maya dress Allure Dress and hair by Kelsey and makeup by Dhalia Edwards. The soft curls, lace and intricate beading on her gown created a strong contrast to the rough underbrush in the woods and the grooms casual suspenders and khaki's. Pearl jewelry, provided by ImajjE Jewelry Designs, adorned the bride in a simple and classic fashion and tied in to the pearl buttons on her dress. 

The wood farmhouse table and wood slice chargers provided a rustic backdrop to a collection of glammed up, traditional copper camping elements, including flatware and mugs. The copper coordinated with the copper foil place cards and menu accents. The sweetheart table was adorned with a lush garland swag that was sprinkled with neutral colored blooms that stood out against the greenery.
