LaShelle & Jamil | Beach Wedding Ceremony | Bethany Beach, Delaware

Summer wedding season came and went in a flash! So, here I am gearing up for the 2018 wedding season, and finally finding some time to blog! 

Laschelle and Jamil had a romantic intimate beach wedding in June in beautiful Bethany Beach, Delaware. Weddings are scheduled after the guards are done so the beach is not packed with visitors. The evening was perfect, as the sun was starting to settle they were surrounded by close family and friends. Everyone wore white and the bride could not have been cuter! LaSchelle and I had multiple conversations in preparation for her wedding! She told me her vision for her wedding was simple and elegant. The arbor was draped in a sheer voile and we completed the arbor with a beautiful flower topper. It was just enough to give the couple their perfect spot for their I Do's and the backdrop was the ocean. Barefoot was a must to complete this upscale beach ceremony. Their beautiful beach wedding ceremony was followed by dinner at 99 Sea Level. Located on the boardwalk in Bethany Beach, Delaware they actually had their dinner on the boards as the sunset on a perfect day. With amazing views of the ocean, they can return each year to the spot where they tied the knot!

Kelly & Kevin | Beach Wedding Ceremony | Ocean City, MD

Kelly and Kevin tied the knot on the beach in Ocean City, Maryland on one of the most beautiful days in June. Not to mention one of the busiest days in June, the Alison to the Altar team set up three weddings that day! We created the most magical beach ceremony with sea-foam colored lanterns that lined the isle way complete with palm leaves and starfish. An amazing bamboo arbor with a full flower topper (that almost didn't happen due to the wind, but we anchored it down!) Kelly and Kevin's beach ceremony was absolutely perfect, a great start to what was a busy 2017 Summer wedding season!

Brooke & Justin | Beach Wedding & Wedding Reception | Cape Charles, VA

I'm not even sure where to start! This amazing experience was a few months in the making. I was approached by Sunset Beach Resort to help with a "Dream Waterfront Wedding" contest, where one lucky couple would win a free waterfront wedding! We had so many entries to pick from, but at the end it was Brooke & Justin's story that won our hearts over.

After being on a Party Bus to celebrate a friend’s birthday that ended up breaking down, Brooke & Justin became inseparable. They were engaged in October of 2016 and unfortunately, Brooke lost her father to cancer in the same month. The beginning of their engagement was not a happy one, it was hard to plan or even be happy while dealing with the loss of her father. Winning this dream wedding meant taking the stress and sadness of planning a day Brooke always dreamt of spending with her dad.

Everyone worked together to make Brooke and Justin's dream wedding come true. We create the most magical wedding ceremony over looking the beautiful Chesapeake Bay, on the beach at the Jackspot in Sunset Beach. With a wedding reception on the Jackspot's deck that we tented and turned into a wonderful fall oasis. The day was magical and we were so happy to be able to have been a part of making a couples dream wedding come true! Incredible view and a beautiful day.
