Carefree Ocean Inspired Wedding On The East Coast

Carefree Ocean Inspired Wedding On The East Coast

Romance by the Sea, beauty in wild, carefree abundance, this is what this next wedding sponsored by Big Fake Weddings was based around. Some of life's most beautiful moments are candid and spontaneous so when this real-life couple renewed their vows at Cape Cod's The West End the whole day felt exciting and off the cuff. But trust us, it was anything but. 

Keep scrolling to hear more about this couple and the alternative style bridal show that is Big Fake Wedding! And don't miss out on any of the beautiful moments captured by Flavio D PhotographyLa Boutique Photography & Makeup Artistry, and Mercedes Baker Photography in our full gallery.

The Couple

They were both working seasonal jobs at a summer resort where Justin was the tennis pro and Mandee was a recreation manager. He accidentally hit her with a tennis ball and it was love at first..err..bounce?! They went their separate ways only to reconnect on Cape Cod a couple of years later. It only seemed appropriate that they have their wedding at that same resort - only steps away from their first meeting. We are so excited to celebrate these two tonight at The Big Fake Wedding Cape Cod!

From Big Fake Wedding

This Bride and Groom have gathered those dearest to them for a spontaneous cliffside ceremony. Surrounded by historic castles, guests feel like they’ve entered a different place and time. The event designs are based on the stark contrast of the crashing waves against the dark rock formations. Vendors let the colors found in nature (moss, sea blue, and stone) drive their decisions. 

This bride is free of jewels, sequins, and adornment. Her gown is a visual continuation of the sea surrounding her. She is daring enough to take her wedding to new heights but care-free enough not to worry with big, elaborate details.
