I+B DRESSES: Moody Storm + Sarah Seven

Having a wedding on the beach can be tricky, you have to go in knowing you can't control the weather and the elements. The ladies at Urban Poppy made use of this, and took full advantage of a story day out on Tybee Island! (They actually sought out a storm for the shoot!) Known for their gorgeous florals, they created a large, textured bouquet with pieces of driftwood and cactus, mixed with soft nude roses and peonies. Such a beautiful combination! This shoot was featured on Storyboard Weddings, so head on over there to see more pictures from this gorgeous shoot!

It may have been super windy, but that didn't stop our two friends, Savannah and Daniel, from modeling! We love that Urban Poppy chose Cascade by Sarah Seven, with it's soft cotton chiffon flows so beautifully in the wind, with her cascading pieces flowing around Savannah effortlessly. And if you are getting married on the beach, why not add a touch of the sea into your flowers? Daniel wore a boutonnière complete with a small sea shell and an air plant. (We love air plants, we just can't seem to keep them alive) 

Instead of setting up a large table, they used a smaller coffee table with pillows for guests to sit on. We love this approach for an intimate wedding, allowing guests to get closer to nature and the sea. The focus of the centerpiece was the driftwood, surrounded by lush flowers and greenery. The Georgia coast is known for their driftwood beaches, so adding this natural element is perfect!
