Jessica & Jason traveled all the way from Albuquerque, New Mexico to get married on the sandy shores of North Topsail Beach, NC. It couldn’t have been a more perfect backyard beach wedding! After their seaside ceremony, they headed back to their beautiful beach rental house for the best backyard wedding reception you’ve ever seen! Their day was full of billowy beach clouds, true love, close family & friends, a delicious seafood dinner and coral & peach tones with pops of aqua! It was the perfect color scheme for a beach wedding!
There day was also filled with something near & dear to my heart….awesome DIY projects! And when I say awesome…I mean….awesome! Jessica’s dress was made by her mom (how cool is it to wear a wedding dress your mom made??!!!??!..and a beautiful one at that!!!!) Their stunning turquoise sugar seaglass cake was made by the groom’s mother, and they were married by the groom’s dad!!! The bridesmaids gathered together to make all the wedding decor & signage. And the bar, the selfie station, and even the dance floor were all DIY!!! They even made their own music….yep…they had a live band. Captain Ivory, out of Nashville, traveled down to the beach to add to the fun of the day. I mean…y’all…you really couldn’t have asked for a more meaningful & memorable day!!! (Side note…I am a big fan of DIY wedding projects, because you put your heart & soul into them and it only helps to make your wedding day more special. Here are some tips for any of my DIY brides out there!)
Spunky & Fun! That is how I would describe Jessica & Jason! And their personalities echoed through out their day! From first meeting Jessica while she was getting her DIY boho inspired wedding dress on, to tequila shots at the end of the night by sunset…..this was an awesome wedding to be a part of and my heart was filled with joy to capture it for them! Hugs to both of you!!!!
