“The glistening waves, the colored skies, and the wind that shifts the sands…these iconic ocean elements have drawn lovers into each others’ arms for all time. For those who hear the call of the sea, there is nothing more poetic than beginning their days as husband and wife on the shoreline. This inspirational shoot elevates and celebrates intimate oceanfront weddings by harnessing the vibrant and romantic color palette and patterns naturally present at the waters edge in beautiful metals, elegant flowing fabrics, and lush florals. We chose copper, coral, and pink to reflect the sunset, balanced with deep blue and gray tones to reflect the sea. Textiles that dance in the wind, and greenery that mimics the movement of kelp in the depths of the ocean. Ocean City, Maryland is a destination for New York and Pennsylvania residents, thousands of whom plan their weddings at the Inlet. This inspiration was designed to fuel new ideas for those designing their spring/summer weddings on beachfronts just like this.” ~ Manda Weaver

Feature: Baltimore Bride

Mindy and Ashley had the distinct pleasure of making over the little ladies and gents at Caroline's Cupcakery. Check out some of the behind the scene pics. Spending the morning with tot-sized models was certainly different from our everyday bride. With goldfish and juice in hand, the little models loved sitting in our chairs and getting dolled up for their spread inBaltimore Bride Magazine.
