Taylor + Richard: A Rustic Red Beach Wedding by Keepsake Memories Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

There’s something so warm and inviting about a Fall wedding, don’t you think? Today we’re smitten with Taylor and Richard’s October North Carolina nuptials, particularly because of the creative red centerpieces and the fact that the bride made her fascinator herself. Special thanks to Keepsake Memories Photography for sending over the photos! We think they capture the unique oceanside ceremony perfectly.

Taylor and Richard originally met as waitstaff at Clawson’s, her parent’s Beaufort restaurant, but it took a while for them to come together romantically. “He always piqued my interest because he was very quiet, but had a great sense of humor,” remembers the bride. Five months into planning their Fall 2012 wedding, they found out they were pregnant with son Cooper and due in March of the same year. He came around just in time to be the adorable best man at the wedding!

“I wanted to create a warm, inviting environment dotted with bright jewel tones in seasonally appropriate colors with an organic, semi-casual feel,” says the bride. Event Coordinator Roger Carter pulled off the bride’s vision perfectly, and Taylor couldn’t recommend working with a planner more.  “Wedding planners might seem expensive, but it was one of the best moves we made,” she says. “Roger took care of everything, from finding the details to running the minute-by-minute on the day of. My family, wedding party, and myself were stress-free, and that in itself was worth the cost.”

The couple danced to “Warm Love” by Van Morrison as their first song, and handed out caramel-dipped apples as favors at the end of the night. Thanks again to Keepsake Memories for sharing the day with us! Want to see another atypical beach wedding?
