Dana, her sister and her mom drove a couple hours in from Wilmington for our bridal shoot – and she showed up READY. She looked beautiful, of course, but she was also very much herself, easygoing, fun, adventurous – all traits that I saw even more of when I spent their wonderful (!!) wedding day with them in Atlantic Beach, but more on that later…. :)

This was Dana’s mom’s favorite :)

And Dana’s dad’s favorites…

A beautiful floral compliment to the sleek updo…

This one looked amazing as a 20×30 at the wedding…

A different feel…

We popped into Healing Waters Day Spa to get this one… They were quite kind to let us in, considering there were five of us meandering about on our photographic adventure (our talented Rachel Garrison joined us for the fun of it) – I assured them it wouldn’t be an every day activity but I’ve been wanting to play with that pearlesque blue.

Will post photographs from the beautiful wedding at The Coral Bay Club soon!
