Brad and Arianna’s wedding was already a year ago! Their first beach wedding anniversary is upon us and we’re fondly looking back at their wedding on the sand right now. They had the most lovely day. It was the perfect temperature and with a slight breeze that wasn’t enough to mess with anyone’s hair. Arianna looked stunning in her Kenneth Poole wedding gown.

One of our favorite real wedding moments from their wedding was the recessional immediately after they were pronounced husband and wife. They had to walk over the dunes and through the field of beach grass back towards their nautical wedding reception. This single little moment when Brad looks over to Ari says so much! And their bridal party trailing behind, also with looks of joy. We used this image as one of their sneak peeks way back then and haven’t lost our love for it since.

Ari and Brad infused many personal touches that made their wedding a joy to photograph. With the beach club’s white and blue striped draping from the ceiling, Ari chose navy and a bright pink as their colors. She handmade signs for the beach, she made napkin liners in blue linen. The details from their wedding were superb. Even with all that, though, the most meaningful images are usually awesome moments like this.

Happy Anniversary, you two!
