Love Lost at Sea

Who doesn't love a good love story anyway? When planning our summer shoot we knew we wanted to design and capture that perfect story of love, loss, being reunited and committing to a life together.

We knew that our backdrop for this romantic story had to be the ocean. Just like love, the ocean is an integral part of life, one that is powerful but serene. The human response to the ocean has been expressed in various forms of art, literature and music, and this is our expression.

Our vision for this shoot was to capture balance in all things.

We created a soft design with hues of creams, greys and blues, a palette that connected our story to the ocean. We balanced our design details to capture movement and softness to warm the harshness of the ocean's rough waves and boulders.

Our bride was styled in two Cathy Telle gowns with beautiful accessories. Each dress created elegance in their simplistic style, the lace a-line dress's color of jade connected our bride to the cool ocean tones and our bridal dress gave soft details of lavender embroidered flowers. Her hair was simply done with wind blown waves and a touch of texture from a fishtail braid, the look completed with her soft makeup, with a hint of pink

We wanted the floral accents to look as though the bride was able to scavenge them herself from her island. Justine, of Flowers by Justine, was able to capture both movement and texture in these beautiful pieces.

The surroundings and the details helped us tell this story of connection, resilience and commitment to what we know is true love.

This August, we snuck down to coastal Rhode Island to shoot our 2017 summer concept! We’re so excited about this look that we had to share some behind the scenes shots with you. Splitting our time between Mackerel Cove Beach and Beavertail State Park in Jamestown, RI, we teamed up with the extremely talented Melanie Zacek for photography and Dmitry Gordievsky of Embark Films for videography.

Our beautiful models, Abby Lynn and Danny Deitz of Maggie Inc. Models were assisted by the wonderful glam team at Upstyle! Abby sported various looks throughout the day, including 2 stunning dresses by Cathy Telle and a veil from Bridal Heirlooms. We’re so grateful to once again have partnered with DMG Noho for our flawless jewels!

As always, working with Flowers by Justine was an incredible experience. We always fall head over heels for her wonderful floral skills! New to our list, we were honored to be able to feature these spectacular custom dinner plates by Susan Gordon Pottery!
 

We had a wonderful day and a fabulous shoot despite some rain later in the day and we couldn’t be happier with the end result! We hope you enjoy this behind the scenes sneak peek and we cannot wait to share the full concept with you in the very near future!
