Several simple details combined for this illustrious styled shoot at Jockey Ridge State Park in North Carolina’s infamous Outer Banks. Real-life couple Kasey and Jonathan set out to mesmerize as they stood atop the largest sand dune on the east coast, with plenty of colorful and organic touches at their helm. A handmade invitation suite is the perfect starting point with its touches of green and gold and characteristic simple but charming design.
The emerald and gold highlights continue in the eye-popping vintage sapphire ring, which certainly brought the colorful inspiration to the bride’s style.
The location is much too wild and open for dainty flowers. A bouquet of white king protea, lisianthus, sea oats, tillandsias, plume reed, thistle, white lilac, and eucalyptus complemented the sand dune with its hearty texture and natural understated color.
With her hair in a statement braid to the side and the hem of her dress in her hands, Kasey explores and traverses the sand dune. Her gown is a simple silhouette with a flowing skirt and incorporates a statement embellished green belt around the waist.
Her makeup is warm and highlights her chestnut-colored eyes and brunette locks.
Her husband, Jonathan looks stoic and timeless in a white shirt with an open collar and a gray vest, complete with gray pants.
They come together as the wind rushes past them, sending the ribbons of her bouquet flying.
With a canvas of natural tones, even their subtle and classic attire looks rich and alluring up on the sand dune.
The bride grabs a wreath made from silver dollar eucalyptus.
Inscribed on a small banner reads “fide et amore,” which in Latin means “fidelity and love” – the touchstone to any successful union. The incorporation of this simple greenery is exquisite.
This whimsical and unique styled shoot came together with the fusion of just few thoughtful touches. From a shade of green to the tallest sand dune they could find, this couple turned a quiet location into whirlwind of romance.
