We’re All About the Details!
The Golden Sands
The beach was the perfect place for Nicole and Kevin’s wedding. Ever since the couple started dating, Ocean City, Maryland was their home away from home. Every summer and every chance they had, they would pack up and head south for a few days of fun in the sun, so when Kevin popped the question to Nicole, there was no other venue for them than Ocean City, Maryland.
The Color Palette
The color palette for their day was purple and bright teal, a perfect complement to the couples fun, outgoing style. Instead of just table numbers, the couple decided to name the tables after their favorite Ocean City restaurants, hotels and bars.
The Nautical Cake
The cake table was a sweet loving girls dream! The cake topper for a set of beach chairs and the cake was surrounded by so many cupcakes! The sugary sweet delicious scent from the cake table was sweetly intoxicating!
The bride and her girl squad of drop dead gorgeous bridesmaids all rocked some form of hair jewelry that came from the sea. Nicole had a dazzling starfish anchoring her perfect updo and accenting her veil.
About the Photographer
Hi everyone! I’m Tracie Smith a national wedding and lifestyle portrait photographer serving the East Coast and the Gulf Coast. I’m a Maryland girl born and bred, but love took me to New Orleans. I work with couples from all over the world and help them through this wild and crazy wedding planning process. I’m right a home shooting by the water, I grew up boating, fishing and spending as much free time as possible by the water. As a wedding professional I found that beachfront weddings are my favorite to shoot and I get so excited when a couple tells me their venue is on the water. My goal is to enhance your wedding day and help give you the experience you’ve dreamed of. From helping devise timelines to bustling dresses or last minute driving couples from their reception so they can see their fur baby as soon as possible, I do it. I believe in serving couples and families and going over and above what is required of a wedding photographer. My wedding day collections start at $1,600.00 and all of my current pricing is found on my website. Shoot me a message through my website to book your beachfront wedding today.
