Real Inspiration: Emily & Kurt

A picturesque seaside wedding.  Emily and Kurt were wed at St. Martha's Episcopal Church in Bethany Beach, DE.  The church is adorable, built in the 1940s, the quintessential beach chapel. 

Their photographer, Carolyn Watson, captured the couple's joy with impeccable detail.


 Emily's bouquet and wedding flowers came from Bethany Florist, located in Bethany Beach, DE.


Emily's dress is a one of a kind design by Adele Wechsler.
Wechsler is a "pioneer in echo couture bridal wear," featuring organic luxury fabrics, vegetable dyes, and a green emphasis.  Catch her latest designs at Rizik's of Washington, D.C., April 28 - May 2. 

Take a look at Emily's pink satin shoes!  A pop of color ties the color scheme together and adds some whimsy to traditional wedding attire.

The maids wore Jenny Yoo eastern shantung dress in pastis pink.  The girls had a choice of three styles from Jenny Yoo's collection.  Non-matching bridesmaids dresses are becoming more popular.  Typically the dresses have one unifying theme, usually color scheme.   It's a great way for girls to get to wear what they want and are most comfortable in, so they can enjoy themselves!

The groomsmen wore ties with a starfish print by Alynn.

Kurt's ring is from TKO in Bethany Beach, DE.  Alice Klein, local jeweler and  wedding guest, made Kurt's ring.  Klein also made Emily's father's wedding ring, years ago.  Emily's rings are eternity bands from O'Neals Antiques of Laurel, DE.

Emily's engagement ring is also from O'Neals Antiques.

Emily and Kurt celebrated at their reception at The Clubhouse at Bayside at Bethany Lakes in nearby Ocean View, DE.  Guests enjoyed ice cold beers from white metal tubs.  Bottle openers were tied to the handles with white grosgrain ribbon.  Notice the little bows!

Three tiers of truffles and scattered sea glass continue the theme of simple seaside luxury.  You can get these bonbons at Nourish in Rehobeth Beach, DE.

The three tier cake was made by Emily's friend, Cheryl Crowe, of Lewes, DE.

Fresh flower toppers add romance to a wedding cake.  Emily's cake topper matched her bouquet with a pink bow made of icing.  As a safety note, always be sure that flowers are non-toxic and safe around food before adding them.



Although unintentional, Emily was glad to see her girlfriends arrive dressed in pink (Emily's favorite color), black, and white.
