Lauren Werkheiser Photography recently teamed up with a group of vendors to create this lovely styled beach wedding shoot! Soft sunshine and pink details were the perfect touch!
Lauren: Ashley, the owner of Make My Day Events, and I recently teamed together to put together a beach inspired styled shoot. For the concept, we knew we wanted something slightly different than most beach weddings. Our goal was to create an atmosphere of casual elegance – not quite the barefoot or flipflop style most people think of when they hear the words beach wedding. We wanted to show brides that it is possible to have a wedding on the beach without having sea shells or star fish as the overall theme.
The shoot took place in Bethany Beach, DE and the bride changed at the Addy Sea Inn.
The dress, from Brides 2 Be, was the perfect choice for this location. The delicate lace and subtle golden hues were something a bit unexpected, as most beach brides would probably opt for a pure white dress that flows in the wind. When we saw how well the lace in the birdcage veil matched the dress, we knew we had to incorporate that, instead of a traditional veil.
One of my favorite parts about this shoot, was the twinkle light canopy that was provided by Coastal Tented Events and the farmhouse tables that sat under it. I’m sure any guest would be impressed by a bride who has these tables at her wedding – especially on the beach. Dinner under the stars, with the waves crashing in the background, would be such a romantic setting.
Hair and makeup was provided by Made Ya Look Hair Salon. We discussed the look we were going after and it could not have been more perfect. The elegant updo paired perfectly with the birdcage veil and stayed put throughout the night, even with the gusty wind.
The wedding cake, made by Sweet Disposition, is truly one of the best I have ever tasted! The bouquet, made by Blossoms Inc., included beautiful pink flowers to tie in the pink linens and the frosting on the cake. Invitations were designed by Caroline, at Pink Orchid Invitations.
All of the vendors that participated in this shoot created such a wonderful team and hopefully we all get the chance to work together again, soon!
