We have a soft spot for Southern weddings and this light, and airy affair has a sweet calming feel we just adore. With an inspiration palette that is delicate and refined, a beautiful bride in a Mori Lee lace gown and the softest color flowers this wedding is the epitome of natural elegance.

Karysma and Christopher

Known for its gorgeous waterfront vistas and resort atmosphere, Dunes West is an excellent wedding venue with seemingly endless possibilities for the perfect day. Sunsets are especially beautiful, and that’s what our couple Karysma and Christopher were looking for!

The duo met in high school and truly had that high school romance that movies are made of. Through college and being apart while Christopher was deployed, the two have fought for each other, and their relationship and finally were able to tie the knot.

Karysma was breathtaking in her embellished lace trumpet gown and dusty blue PrettyLittleThing strapped heels. Sporting gray vests and slacks with ties to match Karysma’s shoes, Christopher, and his groomsmen were a handsome entourage as they awaited her arrival.Rows of white chairs lined a stone path leading to a beautiful, twisting oak with Spanish moss hanging above the guests.
The spot for the ceremony was rustic and oh so romantic. Exchanging their vows, Karysma and Christopher looked amazing against the natural beauty surrounding them. After a brief moment with the wedding party and a couple of handsome young gentlemen, Shannon pulled the newlyweds away for their portraits. Huge oaks and a sparkling waterfront were lovely backdrops, and we love the pale golden light of the late afternoon sun. We love the photo of the duo sharing a quick kiss by the water; it’s so sweet!

The bright and airy clubhouse was the perfect place for a semi-formal dinner with tons of charm. Tables were set up inside and out, featuring white linens and seasonal flowers in Mason jars. The rose, and dusty blue palette that Karysma chose was perfect for the atmosphere in the reception and matched the pale walls and rich wood accents beautifully. While their guests indulged in a scrumptious meal provided by the resort, the newlyweds took to the floor for their first dance. The timeless country classic “It’s Your Love” by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill was an obvious choice for the duo – it’s difficult to imagine two people more in love.
