Anchors Away – Wedding Inspiration by Kate Murray Photography


I always have a favorite Inspiration shoot of the year and this was it!  I put my heart and soul in everything I do but there is always one that stands out to me.  There is always one that goes beyond my expectations. Sometimes magic…just happens!  And the funny thing is, things were going wrong that day.  There were some last minute color changes, my linens didn’t come in on time and I was late because I literally chased the UPS delivery truck down the street for our linens.  Nothing out of the ordinary in a wedding planners life but, still a little hectic!  Then, these extraordinary wedding professionals all came together to showcase their work and everything was suddenly seamless. The gown, the jewelry, the flowers and this stunning head piece… ah, perfection.  And it doesn’t hurt that our couple is GORGEOUS, too.

The flowers are ridiculous and Sugarfield really knows how to do it up!  She played off our color palette and the result is amazing. The ambiance in this room is so stunning and the venue was perfect for this yacht club soiree. This happens to be one of my favorite venues ever.  I got married there myself.  🙂

Ten Twenty Nine Designs totally nailed it!  This stationary is the perfect addition to our nautical theme.  Amber really goes above and beyond.  Oh my, and this cake!  I can’t even. Everything about this shoot is radiant and we are swooning over here at PPB.  I know you are too.

The table setting just came together in the most lovely way.  I love playing with color and I was so excited to work with this incredible group of wedding professionals who feel the same way.  Kate’s eye for detail is truly amazing and she captured the day perfectly showing so much breathtaking beauty.


Obviously I am bias, but it turned out more beautiful that I could imagine and I hope to see it in other publications. It has already been featured in one of our favorite local wedding magazines.  If you missed it, see the full layout in Wedding Essentials here.
