Windswept Bridal Editorial on the Beach

Wedding Design

Beach weddings often take up space in my daydreams, and they just as often happen to look awfully similar to today’s shoot from Michelle Roller Photography, Sandcastle Celebrations, and Eden Floral Design. The entire scene was put together with a palette of grays, blues, and metallic accents in gold and brass, keeping everything perfectly tied to the waterside theme.

From the photographer, Michelle Roller Photography: It all started with a gown. A stunning hand stitched bridal gown from Russia created by Milamira Bridal. This beautiful windswept inspiration shoot was a collaboration of talented vendors. Michelle Roller Photography captured all the sensational details. Janet Tacy of Sandcastle Celebrations utilized an array of natural elements to create a stunning backdrop that showcased the windswept inspiration. Drawing from a palette of soft grays and blues with brass and gold accents, the stylist sought to capture the natural beauty of California’s central coast.

A billowing canopy structure constructed with birch branches echoed the sails of a sailboat. A dining table set with gold rim china and glass ware from Italy nestled elegantly within this natural structure. The napkins and cheese cloth table runner were dip dyed to reflect the ombre colors of the sea. Vintage trunks, wooden crates and lanterns anchored these stylistic elements. The floral designs created by Eden Floral utilized both native plants and conventionally grown florals. A vintage brass urn used for the centerpiece showcased the delicate florals. The bridal bouquet accented the exquisite fabric of the bridal gown. The torn and trailing fabric tied to the bouquet complemented the gown. Paper Cake Events created a gorgeous cake that of reflected the waves of the sea. Edible gold foil was used to decorate both the cake and the delicious French macaroons. The invitation suite created by Morningside Paper Studio utilized a stunning mix of watercolors and gold foil. The suite perfectly captured every element of the inspiration. What started as a beautiful hand-made gown coalesced into an exciting bridal inspiration shoot showcasing many talented vendors from California’s Central Coast.

Jewel Tone Inspired Shoot

Wedding Design

We’re always up for anything in a jewel tone color palette, and this beautiful shoot has them in spades. Inspired after a trip to London, Alexis June Weddings and Kaitlin Agulto Weddings put together a weddingscape with wonderful favor ideas, an eye-catching bouquet arrangement, and a positively dreamy wedding dress from BHLDN in an untraditional beige tone.

From the planner, Kaitlin Agulto Weddings: Brandi from Alexis June Weddings and I have been ogling jewel tone colors for months now and are so beyond thrilled that all of the tiniest of details finally came to life! When we had the opportunity to partner with Crossing Vineyards and Winery, we knew we had a perfect chance to show another side of a vineyard wedding. And in doing so, we found inspiration in Brandi’s recent trip to London and all the beautiful emeralds, rubies, plums and reds that she saw while she was there. We didn’t want to lose touch with our location though, so by bringing in elements like the blooming grape vines and gorgeous stemless wine glasses with hand-painted calligraphy by Vanessa (VCalligraphy) as well as wine flavored lollipops (Luxe Lollipops) for favors, there was no way anyone could forget where we were!

The florals for this shoot were absolutely fabulous! I challenged Susan (Ye Olde Yardley Florist) to conjure something up that captured a multitude of our jewel tone colors and was so unique I wouldn’t even know what half of the flowers were called. And, let me tell you, she was successful. With an incredible garden of her own, she pulled in some gorgeous blooms for us, creating a centerpiece and bridal bouquet full of color and texture. She also designed the arch standing on the venue’s property to look so natural that you thought it was just growing in the garden and yet still full of vibrant colors.

What is a London jewel tone inspired shoot without some vintage though, am I right? When I found this dress at BHLDN I didn’t even think twice. It was elegant (AND BEIGE!) and the beading was so detailed I couldn’t even control my excitement in the store (limited, of course, to only one happy dance!). And what would a gorgeous barn table (Fox and Finch Vintage Rentals) be without some vintage China, gold flatware and the perfect plum ombre stemware? Paired with Charlene’s (kraze4paper) “Mr.” and “Mrs.” wine glass charms and Stephanie’s (Rustic Homemade) table number, our table was complete! Growing up with friends who can bake is something extraordinary. Ashley Baker (Ashley Bake Me a Cake), who specializes in stunning deliciousness, designed a beautiful set of naked cakes for us with accents of pink and white frosting and topped off with a gold “cheers” cake topper (Emily Steffen). As you can probably tell, to me it’s the details that make the difference. I searched high and low for unique items that could add to this jewel tone inspired shoot and I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge that without them, this shoot wouldn’t be complete.
