It's time to dive in to Southern Wedding Sunday and it's only fair to kick things off with this nautical wedding from our friend and Charleston Wedding Vendor Dana Cubbage! I'm quite certain it will have you daydreaming about the coast...and Sue's stunning gown! Thanks to Dana for sharing all the dets...
"Sue + Brian chose beautiful Beaufort, North Carolina for their destination wedding and it was the perfect place for them to celebrate their marriage with family + friends. In town early to get comfortable and relax before the big day, Sue + Brian had plenty of time to spend with everyone who traveled into town to celebrate with them. From sailing trips to beach days to a casual BBQ rehearsal dinner on the water, together with their friends + family, Sue + Brian had a week to remember leading up to their big day.
Rain threatened the area, but Mother Nature was surely looking out for them, as there was not a drop of rain on their wedding day. Everything about their day spoke to their amazing relationships with their family + friends. Sue's sister did everyone's hair + makeup as well as made custom necklaces for all of the bridesmaids. Brian's father acted as Best Man, while both of Sue's sisters served as bridesmaids. The relationship between them all was incredible to watch and so much fun to document
Sue's stunning Pronovias wedding gown stole the show and the bridesmaids looked amazing in their navy Monique Lhuillier dresses. Beautiful yellow + white flowers complimented the day's decor and the venue was simply decorated in navy, yellow + white hues. Their ceremony took place in a beautiful old church in Beaufort, which was filled with such charm. After the ceremony, the family + bridal party rode around town on a trolley for photos. It was a really fun time and everyone was thrilled to celebrate Sue + Brian's marriage!
Tear-inducing toasts, emotional parent dances, and the cutting of the cake - which was made by Sue's mom! - all helped round out this family-inspired celebration. It was a beautiful day that proved you don't have to spend a million bucks on decor and frills in order to have an amazing wedding. Family, friends, and genuine love reigned supreme for Sue + Brian, and I'm truly honored to have been chosen to document all of that for them!
