“As long as I can remember brightly color beach homes have been a favorite of mine. My husband and I always drive through beach towns and day dream about which color we would own… So I am sure you can understand why I was over the moon about shooting Sally and Matt’s wedding in Cape Charles. The venue was beyond words, so quaint, elegant and truly one of a kind. Their wedding embodied what I can only call beach chic. As soon as I showed up to the beach house I was greeted by gorgeous girls all so full of excitement! Sally had the most stunning Swiss Dot tulle dress and sparkly Kate Spade heals to match. Her groom complimented her so elegantly in a light blue seersucker suit with a pink bow tie. My absolute favorite part of their wedding was the love that surrounded them and being able to capture those moments! I had never met their family and friends but could tell by their genuine looks of happiness for Sally and Matt, that they had surrounded themselves with the best people to help start their new lives together!” – Jen Harvey Photography
“I have so many unforgettable memories but one of my most favorite moments was walking down the aisle with my Dad knowing that Matt was waiting for me at the end. Being surrounded by all of our favorite people in the world and having them all there to share in such a special moment with us is definitely a feeling I will never forget. It was was a “once in a lifetime” moment that I will always treasure.
..We got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest and Etsy! I think my favorite DIY project for the wedding was making the favor bags for our candy bar. I bought gold and white chevron paper bags and then had a personalized rubber stamp made with our monogram on it. I hand stamped over 200+ bags. I was very glad that the candy bar at the wedding was such a huge success!
..The best advice I received was to stop every so often on your big day and really take it all in – seriously! It all goes by SO fast and it can get a bit overwhelming. The moments I remember most vividly are the ones that I stopped, took a breath and took a mental note of. Also, don’t sweat the small stuff. Something will probably go wrong on your wedding day – but try to shake it off and remember what the day is truly all about. Try to enjoy every second with your new husband!!!” – Sally, the bride
