When I decided to move from Ohio, I had one thing I knew I needed in my next home: a beach. There is nothing quite like the salty ocean air and crashing waves at sunrise. And when I moved to Savannah I hit the jackpot. Not only are we less then 30 minutes from Tybee Island, we are close to dozens of white sandy shores up and down the coast. Over the years we have made friends with vendors in different cities, and when we attended the Cultivate retreat we met Caroline of Ivey Weddings and Events. Based in Pensacola FL, she had a vision of doing a sunrise bridal portrait on the beach. After showing her our blue gown by Rebecca Schoneveld, she was in love! The gown looked perfect with the light golds and pinks of the ocean sunrise. Sometimes an ivory or white gown can blend in with the sand at beach weddings, so we love when a bride goes bold with some color. And doesn't blue just photograph so stunning?! The gown looks more blue in person, but in photographs it is subtle enough to be bridal, but unique. We are loving the mix of film and digital from Ais Portraits. She also photographed the shoot that we blogged about Tuesday!
"I will always love you, like the ocean loves the shoreline. In gentle wakes, in violent waves, in rising tides from sinking moons. I will always love you and though I may recede, I will always, always come back to you. "
