Say hello to Bayside Bride – the sweetest place to find real weddings, ideas, and DIY projects all catering to brides with a passion for seaside sunsets and nautical bliss!
We’ve asked the ladies behind Bayside Bride—Natalie, Krista, and Sarah—to tell us a little bit more about themselves.
We love all things nautical. We swoon over raised sails and a Chesapeake sunset. We believe the anchor is a symbol of hope and a compass should always point in the direction of the one you love.
We’re the Editors of Bayside Bride!
