Ladies and gents, prepare yourselves for a stop-you-in-your-tracks kind of styled shoot, sent over to us by designer extraordinaire Beth Helmstetter. Produced by Be Inspired PR, photographed by Braedon Flynn, and flowers by Dolce Designs Studio for Destination I Do Magazine, this shoot is hands-down guaranteed to brighten up your day and get you dreaming for some sandy time in the sun!
From the event designer, Beth Helmstetter: The shoot was full of fun details, like colorful Adirondack chairs for the ceremony, vibrant pillows for dinner seating, and was inspired by a colorful, cozy beach wedding in Malibu.
The menu included grilled watermelon cubes topped with hamachi sashimi, cilantro Creme Fraiche and wasabi cotton candy, shoestring fries with Cajun remoulade, mini all-beef hot dogs with a sesame seed bun, caramelized shallots and 50-50 sauce, beach style chargrilled swordfish with fresh apricot and fennel salsa, butternut squash slaw, peach Bellini snow cone shooter, and citrus vodka and pink lemonade snow cone shooter. The welcome basket was stuffed with OneHope wine and champagne, chocolate covered pretzels, Chupa Chups Suckers, and seasalt shortbread cookies.
