Today’s gorgeous real wedding brought to us by Eric Boneske Photography (Wilmington, NC) is brimming with lush florals and sweet moments! Here’s Eric to tell us more:

Danielle and Jason were a great couple to work with. Danielle was very laid back throughout the planning process but always had a clear vision for the day that she wanted.  Florals were a priority to her and I knew that Jeff with Design Perfection would be able to bring her vision to life.  Along with great flowers we were able to rent a bar set up as well as some specialty tables to use throughout the design.

See more after the cut!


Danielle liked the mix of white linens with the dark wood stained tables in the garden. Jason had very specific thoughts on the menu he wanted to serve and the music he wanted to play and they were both huge hits with their guests. Jason met with the catering company and knew that having fresh shucked oysters on site for his guests would be a huge it and he was correct.

Oysters were shucked as guests arrived for cocktail hour from “fisherman” in waders!  For dinner there was plenty of food including chicken and waffles, paella and pulled pork.  Jason wanted his guests to have a unique experience so we backed the cooker up to the edge of the tent with the whole pig continuing to cook as guests watched.

Guests got on the dance floor when the first song started and they did not leave until the last song ended.  All of their guests were excited to celebrate with Jason and Danielle and they could have partied another 4 hours if they were allowed!

Some of my favorite details of the day included the ceremony site with the intercoastal waterway in the background, the Nantucket tent accessorized with wooden chandeliers, and the small details like the wooden table numbers and the personalized thank you tags that were tied to each napkin.  This couple couldn’t have had a more perfect day.

Congratulations to the happy couple and thank you, Eric, for sharing! For more information about Eric Boneske Photo, please visit his WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile.
