These first photos from a June wedding at The Wild Horse House in North Carolina is so wonderful to showcase during our summer wedding photos compilation. Kristi with Kristi Midgette Photography captured these shots that we simply love. Here is a little of what Kristi had to say about the wedding and couple:
“This wedding was all about glamour and elegance. To reach the ceremony everyone had to drive 4X4 vehicles on the beach to the house. Corova is know for it’s wild horses that have been on the beaches for centuries. The wild horses roamed the beaches and even came up for some pictures with the bride and groom. The ceremony was situated right on the deck overlooking the beach next to the rolling waves. The focal point of the ceremony was a grand drift wood arch which the bride and groom stood under.The reception took place on the deck of the beachfront mansion called The Wild Horse. The tables were all decorated with navy blue and white and dripped with crystals and lots of gold. In lieu of favors the couple donated to the adoption of an octopus through World Wildlife Fund.”
Summer weddings do not have to just be at the beach… you can have a gorgeous summer wedding anywhere you choose! Here are some other summer wedding photos we love… and we know you will too!
Love these colorful flowers… great colors for a fun outdoor summer wedding!
A gorgeous sunset overlooking the water.
We just love the colors that are in this photo. From the bright blue truck, to the bright flowers, and the rustic feel of it all… it is an awesome photo to try and recreate in your own way for a summer wedding.
Are you having an outdoor wedding? This flower headpiece would be awesome!
It does tend to get a bit warm in most parts of the country during the summer months. Keep your guests cool with a nice fan they can use during the ceremony or reception.
What is a outdoor wedding in the summer without some fun games to play?
The summer is hot and while alcoholic drinks are fun at most weddings, make sure you have some delicious, non-alcoholic drinks that everyone can enjoy. Just remember, especially if your wedding is outdoors, your guests will be thirsty!
