Ethereal Ocean Elopement | Styled Shoot | Wrightsville Beach, NC
We are so excited to finally share this beautiful shoot with the world, and announce that today the shoot has been featured on Grey Likes Weddings!
This ethereal elopement styled shoot was inspired by the ocean – delicate and light in a way that seems too transcendent for this world, yet profoundly deep and unknown – much like the journey to finding sublime love with your mate.
We loved the transitional looks throughout the day, from the bridal luncheon-ready romper (shouldn’t every bride have a bridal romper!?) to her sweet lingerie captured in an adorable vintage trailer – available for rent as a light and beautiful mobile bridal suite, and perfect accommodations for the non-traditional wedding.
Complementing the stunning beach-side backdrop of the untamed elements were a soft, muted color palette, a gloriously chic and voluminous crop top gown, cascading, untamed florals and greenery, and silk ribbon accents.
Stunning hand-drawn calligraphy graced a sentimental, personalized handkerchief from the groom to his bride, the keepsake vows, invitations, elopement announcements, and a gorgeous farewell banner with the couple’s favorite quote by E.E. Cummings – You are my sun, my moon and all my stars. Standing hand-in-hand, encircled by a driftwood altar, serenaded by the crashing waves and lit by the setting sun, they exchanged vows in an intimate setting and became husband and wife.
