Holiday Inn Styled Shoot – Oceanside Virginia Beach by Jamie Leigh Events

When I received an email from Jamie Leigh’s adorable representative Jennifer I almost fell out of my chair.   YES I would be totally honored to be a part of a styled shoot with Jamie and her team!  How exciting!   I have been really excited to share these images, and as we say bye bye to summer I figured it would bring back some sweet memories!    I loved every minute, even the challenging hotel room light.

Below is a re-cap of Jamie’s blog write up.  You can find that link here.  Be sure to also check out the other shoot by the amazing Tara Liebeck!

Thank you a million times to our photographer, Elizabeth Henson. These pictures are just to die for! Your work is absolutely stunning and we are so thankful you were able to be a part of our shoot!! This particular style shoot was a different concept for the JLE girls as we showcased a hotel ballroom venue at the Holiday Inn Oceanside. This ballroom is the perfect space for a more intimate wedding of around 75-100, and has an amazing view of the ocean for all of your wedding guests to enjoy! Our theme of “Under the Sea” was chosen based on a few factors. Most importantly we wanted to stay away from the “typical” nautical beach look and instead bring to life ideas that most brides would never think of!

The hotel carpet has multiple shades of green, so we decided to utilize the greens in our color scheme in addition to a bold turquoise, soft coral, and of course all things glitter and gold!  huge thank you to Waterford Event Rentals for the gorgeous linens…..these were absolutely perfect!

Fluttering Flowers did an amazing job with the table centerpieces. They used coral rose buds with dark greenery to create an understated yet elegant arrangement to compliment the vibrant tablecloths. And we can’t forget the amazing ombre stationary set provided by April with PaperDolls Designs, the menu cards were just adorable and helped bring everything together at each place setting! Our bride is wearing a gorgeous mermaid style wedding gown provided by Privee Bride of Ghent in Norfolk. Go check them out, you will not be dissapointed!
