Pink Wilmington Wedding: Erin + Scott

It was love at first sight when Erin and Scott met each other on a connecting flight between two airports (yes, true story!) They now live in Colorado and, while there are plenty of picturesque settings in the mountains, Erin wanted to wed back home — near the beach. Erin and Scott were married at the beautiful Brooklyn Arts Center in historic downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. We are so delighted to share their story as it unfolded, thanks to their photographer Photos by Kristopher. You’ll love their pretty pink, green, and white color palette, vintage inspired touches throughout (the wildflower seed packets are a favorite!) and their romantic aisle, which was decorated with pink petals and soft candlelight in blue jars. Enjoy!
