Long Creek Farms Wedding Shoot

Apr 6, 2017

This outdoor shoot makes the most of the stunning North Carolina surroundings which create dreamy, sun-kissed imagery that speaks to organic romance. Taken by Marcus Anthony Photography, our beaded wedding dress glows in the natural sunlight.

Marcus Anthony has been photographing for over 5 years, starting his business in Los Angeles moving to Wilmington in the summer o 2015.

This wedding dress is a contemporary nod to the golden age. From the soft cap sleeves and gentle illusion neckline, intricate fine beading and sequin embellishment enhance the cascading soft net in a softly fluted slim shape.

Sophisticated with flair, this floor-skimming wedding dress is truly timeless.

We love the hues of this Autumnal bouquet, perfect against the reddening leaves and soft tone of our wedding dress. If you haven’t had a chance to check out Long Creek Farms and their beautiful venue yet, you’re missing out!

The use of natural light is a perfect highlight to the intricate beading of the wedding dress, while the soft net adds an ethereal feel.

While as a rule we don’t recommend lying down in your wedding dress (!) this aerial shot is truly spectacular.
