SIMPLY WED: Natalie & Reid

I am so excited to share this wedding with you guys for a few reasons! First, this wedding was probably our most DIY, handmade and green wedding we have had! The bridal party arrived in Beaufort, SC a week before the wedding to start prepping for Natalie & Reid's big day. All of the decor was found at local thrift stores, and nothing was brought in since it was a destination wedding. They used fabric, doilies, and an old book to make the most adorable handmade decorations I have ever seen! I think my favorite had to be the cake topper made out of ripped out pages of a book. The bridal party even did all of the floral arrangements, bouquets, and floral crown while in town. The wedding was catered by Thrive and was entirely vegan. Two friends of the couple made the partially/mostly vegan cake the day of the wedding. I loved how it turned out! And it was absolutely delicious!!! The ceremony took place at Fort Fremont in the woods and was truly magical. The couple read heartfelt vows to each other that were enough to make Layla and I both tear up. I think one of my favorite parts of their wedding day was how after the couple walked out of the ceremony they just took off and went on a stroll down to the beach! Afterwards, the reception took place at Charles Street Gallery in Beaufort where their were handmade decorations everywhere! I absolutely loved it!! It was very sweet because the owners gifted the bride and groom with a painting from their gallery. I am sure the bride and groom will treasure that for a long time! Also, read more about their wedding on Pierogi Picnic, one of Natalie's bridesmaids' blogs! 

The second reason why this is a special wedding for me to share is because I actually took all of the photographs seen below. Natalie & Reid didn't want a professional photographer but there were plenty of people snapping images for the couple. I tried to capture every last detail of their big day because I was loving all the DIY and handmade details! I have to say that I never truly appreciated the work a photographer does as much as I do now... it was very fun but not easy in the least bit!!! Anyway, I hope you enjoy!!! And congratulations to Natalie & Reid!
