It’s easy to day dream about sunny summer weddings and celebrations in the middle of Maine winters but sometimes a cold day on the beach towards the end of winter is the prefect backdrop for something fabulous! Inspired by a single image that Brea McDonald had been holding onto Brea, Sara O’Brien and I came together to create a romantic, melancholy and moody scene depicting a setting that seemed as if it was washed onto shore. It was a true collaboration and half the fun was sitting around my dining room table with Brea and Sara developing our design direction! The collection of found objets, vintage treasures, barn board table top over ivory burlap, oh so fantastic invites, place cards, and vow booklets by Sara, soft and romantic flowers accented by seaweed, and a gorgeous dress from Occasions Bridal of Portsmouth, NH all came together on the perfect grey -blue day on the beach.
The day was captured on film by the very cool and adventurous Meg Simone…love a girl who’s not afraid to get her boots wet! Check out the video here!
The shoot was even published by the always inspirational Well Wed magazine – whoo-hoo!
