We are so lucky that we get to live somewhere so beautiful and get to be Outer Banks Wedding Photographers & we are over-the-hill excited to share this lovely Mediterranean Styled Shoot that took place in Nags Head, NC.
Honestly, Ryan & Rach Photography wouldn't be where it is today without the support from all of the amazing vendors & other wedding photographers that we get to work with on a daily basis and call our friends.
We are gearing up this week for the Outer Banks Wedding Expo and were so excited to see this beautiful photo shoot featured in the new Outer Banks Bride magazine. Ashley Earnhardt from Southern Hospitality Weddings & Bells and Whistles absolutely blew us out of the water with their amazing collaboration. The influence was Mediterranean meets the East Coast of North Carolina. Artichokes, Rosemary, and various yellow & purple wildflowers adorned the small wooden table that was rested beside of the water. Alicia (our bride) was the epitome of a grecian goddess & wore a gorgeous white sequined Badgley Mischka gown & Jeff (our groom) looked dapper in his fitted suit pants, suspenders, and tweed bowtie. Invites & Menus created by HLR Designs worked perfectly with Cafe Lachine's beautiful cuisine of prosciutto wrapped asparagus & brie, sesame seared tuna on cucumber, a strawberry salad with feta, and crab cakes with a corn relish. Icing on the Cakes baked an amazing "naked cake" with sprigs of rosemary to complete the mediterranean look. We think that the most amazing part of the entire shoot was the Llama named Jeff (just like the groom). Dorothy with Bells & Whistles made a greenery wreath for his neck and he looked just as dapper.
We love styled shoots and would love to collaborate with others! We feel that while keeping the creativity flowing and providing brides with new ideas, what we do drives the wedding industry!
A huge shout out again to all of the amazing wedding vendors that brought this gorgeousness to life!
