A quiet and romantic beachside elopement sounds very appealing in this crazy world. North Carolina wedding photographer LINDLEY BATTLE captured this sweet shoot at the Outer Banks venue of CELEBRATION COTTAGE in North Carolina. Captured on both film and digital photography, this is the perfect inspiration for a couple who are hoping for a simple yet elegant wedding day during the year of small weddings and elopements. Styled by KNOT A SECOND THOUGHT, it incorporates natural, organic elements from the surrounding environment like dried beach grass and palm fronds to create a romantic feel that flows cohesively with the wild and unique beach landscape. The bride wears a gorgeous BHLDN gown with the sweetest swiss dot overlay.

Just because you're having a small wedding doesn't mean you can't incorporate beautiful details. Go to town on your accessories, splash out on the dream pair of shoes, and why shouldn't you still have gorgeous paper goods! Wedding calligrapher PRETTY WRITTEN THINGS hand wrote their vows out which is always such a beautiful keepsake to have.
