Ashleigh and Alberto wanted to plan a small, intimate wedding and picked one of their favorite places on earth to host it: Bald Head Island. Bald Head Island is a special place with it's gorgeous secluded beaches, forests of giant live oaks teeming with wildlife (foxes, deer, even alligators). To get there you have to leave your vehicle, ferry over, and then everyone travels around the island by golf cart - so fun, right?! It's no wonder that Ashleigh and Alberto picked this wonderful island for their wedding.
This beautiful wedding day was extra special to me because Ashleigh is my cousin! I was so excited to capture this beautiful day for her and Alberto while simultaneously celebrating with family and friends.
When I arrived to the beautiful ocean front beach home I found Ashleigh and Alberto to be completely relaxed and happy - they were clearly just excited to see each other and finally tie the knot after dating since high school!
Every detail was a labor of love by all involved. Ashleigh and her talented mother and sisters made the wedding favors and signage, Ashleigh's mom Darlene (who is a talented cake artist) made their amazing beach-inspired three-tier wedding cake, as well as designed their gorgeous floral arrangements and bouquets with flowers from A Southern Season.
