We love Libby McGowan Photography. Sure, we kind of say that about every photographer we meet. But Libby is that person you can talk to, confide in, laugh with until you’re weak in the belly and your problems disappear. And her photography rocks, too, and that doesn’t hurt a thing. Today’s Duck, North Carolina wedding makes us nostalgic for the ocean breeze, the Outer Banks, and salt water taffy. And it reminds us of everything we love about coastal weddings… and there’s plenty to love, y’all.
We are crushing on this intimate Folly Beach wedding. From the abundance of florals in pink, coral, blue, and lavender hues, to the oceanfront ceremony location and wedding cake decorated with adorable edible seashells… And some of our favorite Charleston wedding vendors helped to make this coastal wedding such a success, like Carolina Photosmith and Charleston Florist.
The gorgeousness just keeps coming in today, and we aren’t ones to say “no” to a little wedding day puppy love. This coastal North Carolina wedding is ethereal, dreamy, heavenly… just wonderful. We love weddings in the South because they can be so diverse. We truly believe that no two brides are the same, and every wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event designed to dedicate yourself, body and soul, to the person you love so much.
I am so thrilled to finally share this wedding. We’re working hard to make The Lovely Find something besides just another wedding blog — we’ve all seen them, and we know what they look like! We’re taking the time to step back, really appreciate the photography, and listen to the love stories… Chelsea’s wedding at the oceanfront is something so sweet to us, because we’re just honored to share it with y’all. We asked Chelsea what she loved most about weddings in the South, and this is what she wrote. Isn’t it the greatest thing ever?
“weddings in the South are relaxed, and draw from natural elements, while still being elegant and beautiful. They lend to a sense of sophistication without trying too hard, which I love…
