Navy & Yellow Wedding

FILED IN: Weddings

Joe & Sofie’s Elegant Navy & Yellow Wedding – Getting Ready

Sofie and her fabulous bridesmaids and mom got ready at The Padre Hotel and it provided us with some gorgeous light to get those detail shots that I love!!  Sophie’s gown, from The Little White Dress was so elegant and fit her beautifully.  She even thought to order extra sparkle buttons that are on the back to use on her shoes and in her hair!  I love it when brides think of such sweet and beautiful details to truly make their wedding extra special and provide that little touch of meaning 🙂  We had the super-talented Michelle from F.L.Y. Cosmetics create gorgeous wedding day makeup for everyone!   The beautiful bouquets and flower decor were provided by Uniquely Chic Florist. It was such an amazingly calm, fun and beautiful wedding and I feel so grateful to have captured Joe & Sofie’s special day!  A huge thank you goes out to Casey Hardy for second shooting, to my assistant Rachel for helping out with all the extra stuff and logistics, to Renee for opening up the Junior League to us and to Sofie and Joe’s wonderful family and friends!

Also, can I just say that I’m in love with the navy and yellow wedding theme Sofie chose!  What a beautiful color combination that just really worked.  The navy bridesmaid dresses were gorgeous and fit each girl beautfully…and you know I got photos of the stunning blue heels Sofie wore and the gold heels the bridesmaids wore!  Here are my favorites from the ladies getting ready and enjoying some before the ceremony photos!  Stay tuned for more of their wedding (and shots of Joe/ceremony/full wedding party) on Wednesday’s blog!

    I’ve never come across this colour combination before for a wedding but it’s very effective and bold.

    These wedding photographs are absolutely stunning. That dress is my dream wedding dress, do you by any chance know what designer or where it is from. Thanks!

    Hi Megan. Her dress is a Romona Keveza Legends, style L858. She had buttons added to it, which were not apart of the original dress. Congratulations and good luck planning your wedding!

    I just happened across this wedding and was wondering if you could tell me the designer/style of the brides dress. I’m looking for something stunningly simple like that!
