The hour may be early, but the golden light of morning makes a sunrise beach elopement as magical as it gets! Sarah Aaron Photography and Jessica Jenelle Events were up before dawn to put the finishing touches on this intimate and artistic intimate wedding inspiration at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, with stunning beach-inspired flowers by House of Redman and an airy off the shoulder wedding dress by Madison James! The dusty blue and airy white color scheme was inspired by the sea, sky, and sand, and organic elements from seed pods to palm fronds added a touch of nature to the stunning decor!
This dusty blue and vellum invitation suite from Stephanie Gould Calligraphy evoked the sea and sand palette of this lovely coastal shoot, with beautifully hand lettered details!
Planner Jessica Jenelle Events and floral artist House of Redman took the trend for geometric shapes and floral arches in a creative and fresh direction! The minimalist gold hoop took on an organic feel with asymmetrical arrangements of dried palm and fresh, colorful roses!

The dunes overlooking the bay became the perfect setting for an intimate sunrise reception, with Honeywood Rentals setting the scene with a rustic farm table and modern wire chairs. Golden light illuminated the airy tablescape with soft blue and white elements to echo the setting.
To create beach-inspired florals, House of Redman chose to focus on elements of Water with delphinium and blue thistle, Air with Purity Roses, Majolica spray roses, and bleached Italian ruscus, and Sand with Tuffy roses, and quicksand roses. Dried seed pods in each arrangement held blueberries for a unique textural touch!
