Nautical, Enchanting Rehoboth Beach Wedding

When trying to describe the vibe of this Rehoboth Beach wedding & this gorgeous bride, “fairy garden beach princess” is what comes to mind. Melinda & Ted blended coastal, nautical vibes with beautiful blush florals and gold accents to marry two different yet gorgeous wedding themes.

Nautical Details

There were lots of beachy details woven into different parts of this Rehoboth Beach wedding. After all, the wedding was on on a private beach!!

Melinda’s bouquet featured a starfish centerpiece. The bridesmaids wore beaded “barefoot sandals” with coastal charms instead of shoes to go with their flowy, blush-colored dresses. And instead of your typical wedding suit, the groom & groomsmen wore loose, white linen outfits.

At the reception, the white and pink marble cake included crushed sea glass (!!!!) as garnish. In addition, the party favors (a tube of bubbles for the grand exit) were displayed in a container filled with sand and seashells.

Enchanting Florals

If you only attended the reception, you’d never know this was a beach wedding!! Two tents flanked a central dance floor, all of which were filled with draped greenery, hanging woven lanterns, twinkle lights and hanging floral centerpieces with pampas grass. Gorgeous pink and white floral, greenery and pampas grass centerpieces graced every table in the reception, and gold accents could be found in the centerpiece stands, table numbers, plates and utensils.

Party Hard, But Make It Disney

Y’all, this group knew how to PARTY!!! The reception was an absolute blast and featured an outfit change by the bride before the group headed out to the after party!! Even though this crowd threw down, Melinda & Ted were able to include plenty of Disney songs and moments throughout the big day.

Melinda walked down the aisle to a Disney song. The couple’s first dance also featured a Disney song, which ended with Ted spinning Melinda around like a legit princess! Finally, while the bubble exit wasn’t exactly a direct Disney reference, the moment felt like it was a textbook happy ending to a Disney movie!!

"Exceeded all my expectations"

Making my dream wedding come true!
Gabriella was hired by my (now) husband, as a surprise photographer for our proposal. She was phenomenal and we hired her for our wedding as well! Her energy and vision for our wedding photos captured every moment and emotion. She was amazing in every way. Her attention to detail and knowing what was important to me on my big day was awesome - she went the extra mile. I would 10/10 recommend her to any one wanting to capture beautiful moments in life - for their engagement, wedding, and more.

"She went the extra mile."

- Megan W.

Hiring Gabriella was one of the best decisions that we made during our wedding planning. From our very first conversation, Gabriella was warm & bubbly. She radiates positive energy that I knew that we needed for our big day. Gabriella has a vigorous work ethic and eye for detail. Her ability to transform any setting is pure magic. We enjoyed working with her throughout the planning process and are absolutely thrilled with our engagement and wedding photos (which she had edited and back to us in less than one month!).

"One of the best decisions"
