For me, the beach is my happy place. It is where I go when I need a lift, what I dream about when I’m a stress ball, and where I hope to one day retire with my beloved spouse. So I can’t tell you how excited I was when we received this stunning styled shoot from Robyn Preston Photography. It has so much to love! Beautiful couple, stunning DIY details including a non-floral brooch bouquet that makes my heart happy, and of course, the beach! They incorporated tons of seaside details into the table setting, the water color invitation suite and the bouquet. This shoot is a day at the beach for sure. Take a peek at some of this pretty!
Sydney & Grant are the sweet children of my two best friends, and even as wee ones we could see their romance brewing. The love affair was interrupted when Sydney’s family relocated to Virginia. Here in our “Beach Radiance” Shoot we imagine their little love affair continues. Sydney returns to the beaches in California to marry her childhood sweetheart.
Sydney is highly allergic to flowers so our Event Planner chose not flowers but glitter, jewels gold, and shells. The bouquet, centerpieces and cake topper were all designed to add a little sparkle to the soft beach palette of of pink, ivory, tan and turquoise. Seashells and a selection of sea urchins gave the cake an organic feeling yet glittering topper. The bouquet was hand-wired and included 6 different kinds of shells including pink murex, abalone, sea urchins and others. The seashells were paired with brooches, rings, earrings and even doorknobs that brought in both the sparkle and colors of the ocean. A piece of driftwood was used for the handle and left mostly bare to show the beauty of the natural element. This twist on the popular brooch bouquet ties the beach and the bling together and will be a beautiful keepsake for years to come.
