This Southern Mansion Wedding was my first visit to one of Cape May’s oldest and historic Bed and Breakfasts. The bride and groom were planning a first look in one of the Mansion’s beautiful gardens, but Mother Nature decided to throw us a curve ball with rain. Thankfully, the porch was equally as beautiful and covered! Inside the mansion, the front room where the ceremony was held was fully decorated for Christmas and the girls had a large suite to get ready. After the first look and a few portraits, we were off the lighthouse for bridal party shots. Did I mention the rain? It was still drizzling and freezing, but Kasie and Mike’s bridal party were champs.
Love this custom robe for the bride
INC International Concepts Zitah rhinestone shoes for a little bling!
Kasie’s gown was designed by Maggie Sottero, Verina
Kasie’s garter was her Grandmother’s from the 1950’s.
The lace details were so delicate on this gown
Veil was placed by her maid of honor
In front of The Southern Mansion’s front door on their beautiful restored wood porch.
There are rocking chairs lining the porch. Kasie and Mike were able to take a few moments to enjoy their time before the ceremony.
Can you feel the love?
You would have no idea it was raining! Love that the garden area was still viewable from the porch.
Some unscripted moments
The back of this dress was so elegant and timeless. Plus I love sleeves!
This crazy bunch ran onto the ice cold sand for a few shots. When we got back to the suite, all the girls warmed their feet in the tub together!
Stealing a few kisses before the ceremony.
The front room where Kasie & Mike’s ceremony took place was decorated beautifully for Christmas, but even without the extra adornments, the decor is stunning.
This incredible cake was done by Michelle Ellis of Apron Strings Dessert Boutique
The bridesmaids prepared a parody to the Sound of Music for the bride. It was incredible!
So much love!
End the night was capped off with a sparkler exit. Congratulations, Kasie & Mike!
