A Derby Wedding Stylized Shoot Inspiration: Virginia Beach VA


Welcome!!! It is our first Blog post on our official Launch day!!! We had an awesome weekend with margaritas and derby hats, along with my sister Graduating college! My sweet baby traveled like a champ on that 5.5 hour ride up to Radford (praise Jesus!) and she did amazing during the ceremony. It may have rained Saturday but it did not hold us back from watching Morgan walk across that stage, or catching the newest Kentucky derby winner.

This past weekend was one of my Absolute favorites. May is usually the time when spring arrives and it always feels like a fresh start. What better time to showcase our new website we've been working so diligently on?! The goal was to add vibrant fun colors to our site and what sport event comes to mind first? The Kentucky derby shows off fashion, colorful hats and beautiful animals like no other sport.

A year ago I started planning out this branding session with a team of Hampton Roads finest vendors. I wanted bright colors along with an equestrian touch. Growing up around horses you cant help but swoon over their beauty. One of my main goals when a bride sees my work, is that she falls in love with the vibrancy and contrast. I wanted to marry the bright eye popping colors from the Derby along with that equestrian vibe into this stylized session. Jamie Leigh events did a fantastic job matching the mint hue I love and shades of peony pink that I do adore so well! Lets be honest, mint can be a tricky color pairing with other colors. It can end up too green mint or too blue mint. She nailed it on the head!
