Real Wedding: From Sunset to Starlight

bride and groom on the beach by Rach Lea Photography

A totally gorgeous St. Simons Island wedding featuring a ceremony overlooking the ocean at sunset? Now you’re talking! But that isn’t the only detail about this stunner documented by Rach Lea Photography that captivated us — it also had a fabulous peacock theme and stylish use of color. Bride Natalie is a Savannah, Georgia native and groom, Mark, calls a northern state home, but they easily found middle ground and settled on hosting their day at the coastal venue, Villa de Sueños. And we’re so glad that they did because the oceanside backdrop worked perfectly to bring their celebration to life, especially when paired with elements personally picked by the couple. The peacock-inspired palette and the vibrant florals designed by Josh Grotheer undoubtedly were the best of those details… the hues seemed to blend right in with the colors that marked the sky right as the sun was setting and the festivities began. Holding their nuptials later in the day also had another perk — it allowed them to top off their day with a jaw-dropping reception under the stars. Beautiful, from beginning to end!
