A Bold and Colorful Wedding at Croatan Beach in Virginia Beach, Virginia

Amanda Williams (36 and a choreographer) and Jason Beery (36 and a project manager) wanted their wedding to be a festive celebration on the water. "I've always dreamed of a beach wedding, simple, barefoot and in the sand," Amanda says. "I also wanted a bright, cheery theme that would look great outside on the beach." Amanda and Jason got married in front of the ocean at Croatan Beach in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and they chose a fun color palette of hot pink and canary yellow to contrast with the natural surroundings. The wedding party, which included Amanda and Jason's children, dressed in the vibrant wedding colors. The bridesmaids wore bright yellow sundresses and the groomsmen wore hot pink polo shirts. All the girls in the wedding party carried bouquets of hot pink and yellow roses. Amanda wore a strapless high-low wedding dress and Jason dressed in a white linen shirt and khaki pants to match her beachy look. The couple were married in a sand-unity ceremony that was perfect for their oceanside marriage. Afterward, Amanda and Jason treated their guests to a candy bar that consisted of hot pink and yellow sweets. Mary Alice Photography was there to capture the day.
