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!!

“Gabriella was absolutely amazing!!! Words cannot even describe how perfect she was, but I’ll try my best. Right from the beginning, I knew she was the one. She was so caring, calming, organized, and just a genuinely happy person. She made me feel even more excited for my wedding. She was so helpful throughout the entire process right down to the big day. AND THE PICTURES - OH MY GOD. They are absolutely breathtaking and she definitely tells the story of your day in the most perfect way. She captures every precious moment while having a smile on her face the whole time she’s with you. I can’t say enough amazing things about her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have the BEST photographer for any occasion. We had such an amazing experience with Gabriella and we can’t thank her enough!”

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and we could not have asked for anyone better to capture our proposal! I had intentions of interviewing multiple photographers, but after seeing her work and talking to her over the phone, I immediately booked with her. Her passion for photography is so evident. She goes above and beyond to make your shoot about YOU. She does a great job of taking control and guiding you with poses that you will love, and her candid shots are unbelievable. She had a smile on her face the entire time and we felt like a close friend was there doing this for us. Would recommend her 100 times out of 100!

Gabriella was absolutely amazing. She made the photography session so easy and effortless. Her personality is so warm and inviting, she made us feel so so comfortable during these pictures. Gabriella went above and beyond for us and I’m so grateful my significant other found her as a photographer. I would highly recommend!

Gabriella is not only an amazing photographer, but she is an amazing person! She was incredible to work with and made everything from our engagement photos to our wedding day extremely easy. She really understands your vibe and does everything she can to help make that come true! My husband is extremely camera shy, but he was so comfortable with her and the photos were amazing!

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and needless to say she went above and beyond our expectations! She was hired by my fiancé for our surprise proposal and she did a phenomenal job at capturing every single detail of it. She made our lives easy by understanding us, our personality, the way we wanted to be captured and she did just that! From showing us every beautiful inch of Longwood gardens to telling us about different poses to capturing the beauty and essence of nature! She made my dream come true with these beautiful pictures. We spent 2 hrs with her and there was sign of rush of ending the session and it was more like whatever we felt in the moment which is what I truly enjoyed. She sent us our sneak peak pictures the day off just several hours later and needless to say not only did our jaws dropped but every single person who viewed those pics while asking who the photographer was! We proudly share her information with every member of our family and friends because she truly deserves the best❤️ Thank you Gabriella for capturing the most beautiful and intimate moments of ours and We can’t wait to work with you again!

Gabriella captured our special moments perfectly! She photographed our proposal, Holud night before the wedding, and wedding day. She was very easy to work with and always communicative and responsive. She was able to handle a 300 person wedding with ease and always got the shot. I've only seen the sneak peek from our wedding weekend but I am already in love with the pictures. She truly captured the joy and happiness of the weekend through her photos, which I will treasure forever. She is also just a genuinely kind person, which makes working with her even better :) Highly recommend.
