Stephanie & Jason

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

I am so excited to share some gorgeous photos with you from last weekend’s wedding.  Stephanie and Jason came down from Tennessee with their precious families for a very sweet and intimate celebration.  Kate Crafton, photographer extrodannaire and her second shooter (and rockstar in her own right) Anna Bonick of Hullabaloo Design were off the charts amazing.  Ladies, are you listening?  Kate and Anna will travel down to our breathtaking beaches (or anywhere else, I am sure) and shoot your wedding, and then you can have drop-dead-gorgeous photos like this of your very own!

Stephanie wanted a vintage feel with some modern touches to go along with the beach house where the reception was being held.  The house is a 100 year old Victorian home that has been moved from another town to sit and overlook the sugar white sands of Inlet Beach.  The owners have lovingly refurbished the home and added some beautiful modern touches to its otherwise vintage appearance.

With a small ceremony like Stephanie and Jason’s, I like to do something that feels cozy, like place the chairs in a circle.  The guests sat family style at long mahogany tables, decorated with a variety of white flowers and groupings of turquoise vases and containers, along with lots of candlelight, accented by vintage silver pieces.  The Bride contributed a beautiful collection of vintage crocheted doilies that served as the perfect runner for the tables.

While the steel drums played, guests dined under cafe lighting with lots of love, laughter and memories.  Stay tuned for more details.  Until then, enjoy this little slideshow Kate put together!
