This week we are traveling back in time to Labor Day weekend and more importantly Anna and Mark's charming wedding! Fun fact: Anna herself is a wedding photographer out of Wilmington, NC-So...there were big shoes to fill for Amber from Six Foot Photography to produce amazing wedding photos! & Brace yourselves because these photos are absolutely stunning and we cannot wait to share them with you...
But first, let's look into the small details of this wedding that really made the day so special and one to remember! Before getting pampered with hair and makeup, the bride and her lovely bridesmaids enjoyed some time relaxing and treating themselves to fruity mimosas! We absolutely adore the matching floral robes! And even more adorable is the bride with her two little flower girls...& yes- they are twins!
While the bride and her maids were busy getting ready, the groom and his gang were having a little fun of their own! As a gift to all of his groomsmen, Mark gave each one a pair of fun and quirky dress socks! And man, do these guys know how to show-off these socks! We also loved the classy and chic look of their grey suits!
A guest book is a great way to look back and remember the people you shared a special time with on your wedding day! Traditionally, couples display a book at a station where guests can sign-in and leave personal notes! And while we think traditional guest books are great, Anna and Mark decided to add a creative spin to their guest sign-in! The wood-paneled NC outline really added a personal touch for the couple and was a unique way to remember their special day!
The bouquet toss is a time-honored tradition at many weddings! However, the tradition has more recently fallen out of favor with brides who are not enthusiastic about having their single bridesmaids and girlfriends rush the dance floor in hopes they will catch the bouquet and be the next-in-line to wed! But...Anna's enthusiasm certainly came out as she tossed back her bouquet to a hopeful single lady! It is hard not to get happy by looking at her contagious smile!
The infamous sparkler-send off is a very popular wedding trend! Not only does it allow guests to be involved in the exit of the bride & groom, but it puts them in the spotlight in a super fun way! We could not help but share this super sweet picture of Anna and Mark kissing under the lights. What a perfect way to top-off the end of the night!
& Now is the time you have all been waiting for...
These are truly some of the sweetest and most adoring photos we have seen taken here at The Bradford. Not only are they super fun and creative, but they emphasize the love this couple shares for one another in such a perfect way!
