There are a thousand reasons to love the Summer. The cool sand, ocean blues and warm rays of the sun are good for the soul. A few months ago our team started dreaming of some Summer wedding inspiration by the seaside. Here’s a little more about the inspiration behind this concept of the shoot:
When I think of Summer the first thing that comes to mind is the ocean. Perhaps its because I grew up minutes away from the shore. Regardless, I’ve always been enthralled by the dichotomy between chaos and calm of the sea. It is both fierce and gentle in an ethereally and haunting way. It evokes a beautiful sense of longing for the unknown and intangible. The ocean has always moved my soul deeply. I knew it would be beautiful to merge my love of the sea and wedding inspiration. When I found the dream-like coast of Fort Pickens, I knew it would be the perfect backdrop. Our model is a ballet dancer, beautifully using her talent for capturing emotion through movement. It is as if her love is out at sea and she waits for him. Looking out upon the waves fill her with both immense longing and peace. Our floral and paper designs pulled everything together in perfect simplicity. The watercolor on the paper suite wonderfully mimics the lull of the tides. Again, the model’s attire reiterated simplistic beauty and the organic-feeling tiara added just the right amount of elegance. We hope you feel as we do when looking at these images.
I’m honored to have this shoot featured on Wedding Sparrow today as well!
