Real Virginia Wedding: Belle and Sean

If there is anything in this world that I, Tilley (your wedding blog bud), love as much as weddings it might be palm leaves. Imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon a wedding WITH palm leaves. Score.

The bride, Belle, wore a show stopping bejeweled wedding gown for her big day last May.

Her waterfall curls and white nails tell me she’s got great style ;).

Her bridesmaids wore black and they all carried tall bouquets of green, white, and blue.

I can’t even handle all the beautiful details in this photo!

With her dad by her side, Belle walked down the aisle behind Redeemer Church in Chesapeake, VA. Those ferns are a great touch!

Her groom, Sean, awaited her at the end with his groomsmen (also looking suave in black).

Soon after they were man and wife! Can we pause though and talk about how awesome that backdrop is?! It is made of pallets painted white and covered in palm leaves! Genius and so freaking glam.

Now for the cutest, most sun-kissed, trendiest couples portraits ever.

Gahhhh (insert heart eye emojis!)….

The reception also took place outside and looked so darn cool.

First off, they served Chipotle. #win.

Second, their sweetheart table was in front of the epic palm background.

Third, these string lights are perfection…

…and although I could keep going, I will end with this smorgasbord dessert table! Mic drop.

Congrats Belle and Sean! May your marriage be filled with more palm leaves and pie (just like I hope mine is lol).
