A small, sunrise ceremony on the beach with friends and family... sounds beautiful, doesn't it? It was. Sarah & Brad exchanged vows at sunrise on the beach in North Ocean City over the weekend. The bride's bouquet matched the colors of the rising sun and the morning sky.
The bridal bouquet contained 30+ stems of various tulips, coral charm peonies, bright yellow ranunculus and veronica plumes. Her bouquet was wrapped in ivory ribbon and accented with a silver brooch.
Without a traditional bridal party, the couple chose to have each of the women present hold a small posy of 10 tulips with a few stems of sword fern. They were lovely and I loved this gesture... The perfect way to honor every loved one present at a small ceremony.
The groom & the fathers wore boutonnieres of greenery, fringe tulips, and ivory spray roses.
The centerpieces were my absolute favorite! They were full of movement and texture and complimented the setting nicely. The breakfast reception was held at Lighthouse Sound Restaurant. The head table centerpiece included a Hawaiian protea, stock, tulips, ranunculus, solidago & roses.
Two arrangements were placed next to the couple's ocean blue wedding cake. Look at how those yellow parrot tulips opened! Stunning.
Congratulations, Sarah & Brad! I wish you a lifetime of happiness and joy!
p.s. JoAnn, it was a pleasure working with you and your family! And thank you for sharing several of these photos with me. Melissa, thank you for sending photos over from the reception at Lighthouse Sound.
