Jamie and Steve’s wedding celebration took place in Atlantic Beach, NC – where Jamie is originally from. It was an absolute honor to travel down from Charlottesville to capture the excitement amongst this super fun couple and all of their friends and family. They held an outdoor ceremony (braving gusts of wind!) and entertained their guests with a delicious Mexican buffet style dinner. How fun is that?!
A huge thank you goes to my talented friend and photographer Faith Teasley for her incredible assistance capturing their day!
From Valerie (bridesmaid and awesome florist): Jamie and Steve were engaged March of 2014, in Saint Marteen and were the first couple to book the Cottage as it was still, as the bride puts is “a pile of wood!” Luckily this couple is the laid back creative type, so the enormity of the construction project did not intimate them. They had no doubt that the space would be finished and better than they could have ever imagined!
Jamie and Steve chose a palette with shades of nude and muted pastels, with splashes of gold. These colors are so reflective of this couple’s personality: very down to earth, but filled with spark and surprise!
They met the first day Jamie moved to Baltimore from North Carolina. On this life altering day and first day in the big City, Jamie got a flat tire in the McHenry tunnel! She thought maybe that was a sign to turn around and go back home, but it’s a good thing she didn’t! Five hours later, in the midst of a torrential downpour, and after being subjected to the anxiety of holding up inner city traffic for hours, Jamie’s best friend Perry managed to get her out of the traumatizing tunnel experience. Perry did what any best friend would do next – take Jamie out for drinks! It was there that Steve sat next to the beautiful wet rat that would soon be his future wife. It’s funny how one ordinary day can unfold into a complicated challenge that may change the rest of your life.
