The East Coast Bride

A Bold North Carolina Wedding by KMI Photography

By Krista

Happy Friday, East Coast Brides! We are super thrilled to bring you this amazing North Carolina wedding to kick off your weekend, captured by KMI Photography. Our favorite part, besides the gorgeous property, stunning bride and adorable cupcakes, the red flowers against the white and ivory bridesmaids dresses – truly spectacular!

From that gorgeous bride, Linda:

The ceremony and reception were held on a private 14 acre property overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway, Queen’s Point, in Wilmington, NC. The actual ceremony was held on the Point, for which the property was named. This simplistic Southern coastal home with its large oaks, decks, and private docks was a true reflection of us as a couple. I was accompanied by the “girls in white” wearing their own unique white dresses and turquoise and coral necklaces handmade by the bride. The groomsmen wore Tommy Bahama white shirts, khakis, and flip flops given by the groom. The wedding party sat on benches behind the bride and groom. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed strolling between the different food stations of chicken curry, bbq sundaes, fish pokey, ceviche, and shrimp along with Kevin’s infamous “rum bar.” Cupcakes, ranging in many flavors from pina colada to red velvet were served with milk cartons & straws. We fed each other the “bride & groom” fishes atop our cupcakes, followed with a swig out of a good ole fashion milk jug. The party began with live music and a dance floor that overlooked the waterway. We, along with their 200 guests, danced the night away under a full moon, only to break for a toast with mango rum shots. The night ended with sparklers and a breath-taking firework display over the water, as we departed by boat. The wedding party was trolleyed back to their beach houses in Wrightsville Beach. What inspired us: love for the ocean/beach/boats/outdoors (coastal living)! The look I was trying to achieve: all natural/casual, yet elegant/unique. We wanted the property to speak for itself, so did not want too many flowers/decorations. Simplistic underwater orchids, along with shells, sand, and coral decorating the tables reflected a natural yet classy theme. 

Apologies for the overuse of adjectives in the introduction…I can’t control my excitement for the red and white with pops of turquoise. So unique and absolutely deserving of them! Congratulations, Linda and Kevin!
