Jil and Jim complemented their romantic beach setting with soft pastels and starfish to get that casual, light and airy by the beach feel. It was like a fairytale come true just like how they envisioned their big day is going to be, and they are sharing their beautiful gallery, shot by Christi Curtis and Stephanie Duffany, with us. Feel the breeze and sunlight as you browse through it. May your life be filled with sunshine and happiness Jil & Jim, Congratulations!
Casual Beachy – coming together as two families and becoming one. I wanted the reception to be romantic, light and airy… it was truly a fairy tale.
The Outfit Inspiration:
The Beach — Jim and I have spent a lot of time on the beach, and it is where we feel most at peace and happiest
Favorite Part of the Day:
Having all of our friends and family there with us, everyone cried because I believe we all felt the love between both families. Many came as friends, but everyone left feeling like family
The Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Projects:
My bouquet had Jim’s mother’s lace from her wedding dress around it; the sand ceremony was revamped to include our sisters and my daughter decorated the container. My personal vows to Jim were from an email I sent him right when we started dating and in the subject line it stated: my wedding vows to you… wouldn’t it be fun to dream. I read those to him, and they were as perfect on our wedding day as they were years prior.
The Highlights From The Ceremony & Reception:
Walking down the aisle and seeing Jim for the first time… We dreamt about this day but for it to finally come true was overwhelming.
What part of the ceremonies do you think was the most memorable for the bride and groom?
The actual ceremony… seeing each other for the first time and having that feeling of absolute love and joy for our future.
