Natural Enchantment by Keepsake Memories Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Becca and Sam’s wintry palette of midnight blues and charcoal grays is totally getting us in the mood for the holidays. After seven years together, the pair tied the knot in a handmade, outdoor wedding on Emerald Isle, North Carolina.  Their DIY approach involved keeping the entire event as eco-friendly as possible, utilizing natural décor, sola flower bouquets, and organic goods.  It was a magical evening of  relaxed, laid-back fun and about a million kisses (we can’t get enough of all of their kissing shots)!  Keepsake Memories was there to capture the day, including this stunning photo of the bride in front of a vintage bathtub at The Watson House.

With the help of her bridesmaids, Becca crafted the bouquets and boutonnières using Sola flowers (hand-carved from Tapioca trees), baby’s breath, grapevine, and greenery.  Becca wore a gorgeous ruffle-skirt ball gown and walked down the aisle with her parents as Sam played an acoustic version of Bron-Yr-Aur by Led Zeppelin on the guitar.  There, on the scenic grounds of the estate, the couple took their vows in a completely personalized ceremony in front of one hundred and twenty five guests.

After the ceremony, the couple took a moment alone together to revel in the joy of being married!  Then, a rustic, natural reception ensued under a tent.  Midnight blues were incorporated into the place settings, while handcrafted centerpieces of grapevine, winter berries, pinecones, and vintage lanterns adorned the tables.  The evening continued with an after party that lasted til 2am!  Read more about their sweet story just below…
