Beach W/out the Beach :: Styled Shoot


You've seen the "beach" wedding before. Bride and Groom casually dressed, perhaps barefoot on the sand overlooking the ocean view. Details are adorned w/ seashells and hues of blues and greens replicating the reflection of broken sea glass. It's the classic Beach Wedding. Probably one of the most "done" themes around that is timeless and never goes out of style. But what about the bride who wants a beach vibe w/out the blues and all the shells, and hey without the beach itself!

That is pretty much the conversation that arose between photog Becca Rillo and myself months ago. Not everyone loves blue. Not everyone has the ability for the picturesque seaside landscape for their nuptials. Becca basically gave me complete freedom for the concept and design as well as the day of styling. And of course - we used vintage rentals from Tasteful Treasures =) We went with purples and soft pinks for the florals and used a dusty teal as an accent with tons of wispy whites, tans, and browns. What do ya think?? Wanna have a funky beach wedding now? =)

Ok, now for the pictures!! (You can see more photos over at Becca's blog HERE) Click to enlarge (as always)
