Ethereal Sea-Themed Editorial

Coastal inspiration is all around us in Southern California, but unlike typical beach editorials, I really wanted to focus on creating an elegant, ethereal, modern, and clean wedding design focusing on the natural surroundings of Sunset Cliffs. With the help of my creative gal pal, Lauren Sharon Vintage Rentals & Design, we styled our shoot centering on raw and soft textures, a natural color palette of cool blues and tans, and pops of metallics. It was important for us to show couples that you don't need traditional flowers to create a beautiful atmosphere and designing around your landscape is key. Instead, we used glass bottles, driftwood, fishing rope, nets, and soft textures to adorn our tabletop and ceremony location. Sea-grass, textural lounge furniture, and draping linens softened the look. My favorite part was balancing the rich and earthy landscape with delicate, sea-themed details...that type of juxtaposition is my signature style. Shout out to John Schnack Photography and the team of talented geniuses behind this concept and design (vendor credit at bottom).
