Before jumping right into my column for Design Sponge, I wanted to take some time this morning to give a quick shout out to one of our lovely sponsors, Blue Door Photography. We don’t have the opportunity to feature many seaside weddings on Once Wed, so I thought the beach photo shoot below would be the perfect bit of inspiration for couples who are planning to get married by the sea…

Our main goal is very simple –  to take beautiful photos. We build relationships with our couples so we know exactly who they are, and what they are expecting on their wedding day. We love to have fun with our couples, but we also know when to step back and allow the wedding day to unfold. Our images our energetic, unobtrusive, and capture the day as it happens.

Although Blue Door is based in Savannah, GA they’ve have had the pleasure of photographing weddings from as far as Santa Barbara, CA to Rome, Italy. They really do love to travel! To see more of Blue Door’s images, check out their website and blog.

PS – The lovely ideas and styling you see above are courtesy of Savannah based event designer, Elizabeth Demos.

Mitchell Hall (of Project Runway fame) did the wardrobe styling for the photo shoot. He also designed and made the bride’s dress. The tie was purchased at Hermes at Tyson’s Corner in Northern Virginia.
