Picking a wedding dress is one of the most important decisions a bride has to make.  It is after all the most talked about and photographed item of the day.  The wedding dress often dictates the formality of an event and influences other key decisions such as flowers and decor.

The trends are ever changing and I love seeing what each girl picks to wear down the aisle.  This year’s bridal fashion has also been particularly fun for beach brides as we’ve seen a move to lighter fabrics and ever shortening hemlines.  I’m convinced the “high low” (longer in the back, shorter in the front) look splashed across cover after cover of bridal magazines is designed with the beach bride in mind.  This hemline certainly lends itself well for an easy barefoot walk through the sand.  When it’s time to head to the reception step into some chique pumps (perhaps in a fun color) and your ready to dance the night away.

Nice job Leslie.  Your dress certainly tops our list of favorites for 2016!

White doves provide a unique and memorable way to symbolize two becoming one.  Typically they perform perfectly on queue flying high above the ocean in sweet unison as a beautiful representation of eternal love.  However, even the best trained and most rehearsed do have a tendency to go rouge every now and then as was the case at this wedding.

The bride and groom loosened their grip and presented the doves for flight, but the birds had other plans.  Hopping to the ground for a closer look the snowy white doves strutted up and down the aisle in the light of the photographer’s flash for a good 90 seconds before taking flight and disappearing into the sky.
