From the rock dinnerware decor to the seashell-adorned fishnet veil, this wedding inspiration shoot adds rustic, bohemian flair to the picturesque Outer Banks backdrop. Wedding planner Hannah Hildebrandt Events used a neutral blue and ivory color palette for a look that's both calm and chic. “For true Coastal souls, the earthy wood and organic feel of different ocean blue tones can speak volumes," Amanda from Amanda Hedgepeth Photography says—who gorgeously captured all the details of the day below!
