You may remember David and Blair from their winter engagement session this past December. Well, just a few short months later, here we are celebrating their wedding day! If there was an award for most relaxed and ‘in the moment’ wedding couple, Dave and Blair would win! Their day began and ended at the stunning grounds of Beach Grove Golf & Country Club. Blair arrived that morning, bright eyed and ready to get the party started. Her best friend, Kelly, was there that morning to help with all the fine details, and buttoned Blair into that gorgeous Maggie Sottero gown. Dave was looking mighty dapper in his Jack Victor tux from 67 Richmond and couldn’t wait to see his bride.
Dave and Blair decided on a secret first look, so we gathered in a private room to capture the special moment before their ceremony (see the delightful photos below). You could see the genuine excitement and joy on their faces. We lead the soon to be bride and groom outside for some portraits under the freshly bloomed trees and across the road to the golf course.
Although it was calling for rain that morning, the sun came out just in time for the formal portraits and outdoor ceremony. What a gift! Pastor Linda, a long-time friend of the bride, did a lovely job facilitating the intimate service. Soon after the guests headed inside for a cocktail hour and enjoyed the soothing sounds of Walter Senko and band, that was put together by the music loving bride.
David and Blair envisioned an elegant, yet rustic reception space and their vision came to life with the help of Jen, at Elegance by Design. The space was decorated with simple and fresh greenery provided by Rainbow Flowers and hand drawn chalkboard art by Rustic Charms. After an incredible meal, guests enjoyed delicious goodies provided from Shelby’s Sweet Shoppe who followed the elegant and rustic vibe to a T. Their day came together beautifully, just like they did as a couple, so well suited for one another.
Blair and David, you pulled it off! What an incredible day to be a part of. Thank you for choosing us to capture your engagement and wedding photos! We hope you love the photos, and that they transport you back to all of the feelings you felt that day. God bless you both!

“Our wedding day was so smooth and relaxed with Arica and Josh. You can immediately tell they truly love their profession and want to do the best job for their clients. A ton of thought goes into every one of their photos and it is displayed in their excitement after every shot they take. They are true artists and we are so blessed to have had the opportunity to work with them and also call them our ‘friends’.” – Blair & David
