When you think of California you think about that beautiful coastline, and that itself was the inspiration behind this intimate styled shoot we designed. The scenery played a part in making this day as gorgeous as it looks, and it really was a beautiful day with the sea sparkling and the light shining just right on our beautiful couple. We used the serene soft colors of the beach as the color palette, and although we shot this in the Fall of 2015, the colors ended up going really well with the beautiful ethereal Pantone colors of the year… There was so much talent behind this shoot and we love how it turned out, we are so excited to finally share it with you and thrilled to have it featured on Style Me Pretty today as well. Keep scrolling and reading for all the stunning photos and details.

We are still swooning over this absolutely gorgeous bouquet created by Milieu Florals. The colors and textures were so stunning and we loved how they were a nod to the coastline. Plus, any time we get to have protea in a bouquet we are happy!!
We are in love with this ethereal Sarah Seven dress from The Dress Theory and the soft pretty hair and makeup by Erica of 1011 makeup. That dress captured blowing in the light winds near the sea… just wow…
On to the pretty paper goods… Prim and Pixie designed this stunning seaside inspired suite with soft grays and light pinks, calligraphy by Yours Truly Calligraphy and even wrapped with some pretty vintage ribbon for that extra special detail. We loved the mixture of textures and the water color aspect to it all, really reminded us of the ocean and all it’s beauty.
The Mrs. Box is always the perfect touch for any bride’s rings and these Love Tatum rings would be such a beautiful alternative to a boho bride… Plus, how perfect are her other sea inspired jewels for you beach brides?!
There are those pretty jewels on our pretty bride… How about this peacock chair from Found Rentals? We had Milieu Florals adorn it with some of her magic just to jazz it up a bit… It’s the prettiest piece for some before ceremony portraits.
And can we talk about these shoes?? Ya… BHLDN you just get us….
Now for the sweetheart table… We really adore how this one turned out. We started with the most beautiful (and heaviest) glass and driftwood base table from Found Rentals, which was absolutely perfect for this beach shoot, right?! On top we used borrowed BLU’s pretty Russel Wright plates in sea foam and an amazing mixture of white and gold glassware and flatware. The Duo Studio created the light wood Mr & Mrs for our lovely couple and Milieu Florals did another knock your socks off floral arrangement.
No wedding, or event for that matter, is complete without the desserts and these ones with the rocky beach backdrop are just gorgeous. The cake from Susie Cakes was adorned with florals and spare rocks we picked up along the shore and those delightful watercolor macarons were made by Le Mignon Macaron. Everything was placed on a teal vintage table from Found Rentals and we used the brass and glass cake stands from borrowed BLU for presentation.
