In honor of it being the last day of spring, I am sharing a beautiful real wedding today that showcases the breathtaking natural beauty of a North Carolina beach on a spring evening. Maria and Shane got married at Holden Beach on April 12, 2014 in front of 100 family members and friends. Lauren DeMoss Photography did an amazing job capturing the soft beauty of the day–get ready for a whole lot of gorgeous:

The colorful, preppy designs are a true Southern favorite. Today, I am celebrating Ms. Lilly’s contribution to Carolina style with a Lilly Pulitzer-inspired pink and green wedding vision.
