Jamie + Chris: Casual and Intimate on the Beach

A casually elegant wedding on the beach, complete with khakis, patterned bridesmaids dresses and a colorful wildflower bouquet the Bride arranged herself that morning.

Jamie and Chris were married on November 16, 2011 in Folly Beach, South Carolina, United States.

Q + A with the Bride:

How did you and Chris meet?
On Match.com.

What was your most unforgettable wedding moment?
All of the nervous energy that is built up just before walking down the aisle and then seeing Chris — it all just went away and we were in that moment, and I didn’t even realize anyone else was at the wedding, it seems like it was just the two of us.

What was the most valuable piece of advice given to you before your wedding day?
A friend told me a story about her wedding. She used lemons and obsessed over making sure all the lemons looked exactly the same, and when she was doing it realized that it didn’t really matter. When she asked people after the wedding they didn’t even remember that the lemons were there at all, so I didn’t worry about the little things.

What was the quirkiest wedding detail?
Everyone kept asking us what to wear for the wedding and our only request was no ties or suit jackets!

What’s your thriftiest trick?
We went to a farmers market the morning of the wedding and bought all the flowers for the bouquets for $25 and then made our own. I used my grandmother’s brooch to add a special touch to mine.

What was your something old?
My grandmother’s brooch for my bouquet.

Something new?
The dress.

Something borrowed?
My bracelets.

Something blue?
My earrings.

How many guests did you have?
75 guests.

What was your theme and color scheme?
A beach wedding with shades of blue.
