If you’re looking to get lost in a daydream today (you know, in between shopping for those Cyber Monday deals!), we have THE prettiest coastal wedding inspiration for you from the talented Copper + Chloe! Inspired by a trip to the west coast, Amanda dreamed up a romantic, ethereal and oh-so dreamy styled shoot at The Spring Lake Bath + Tennis Club, and we can’t get enough of these gorgeous images! With Molly Sue Photography behind the lens, every pretty detail of this al fresco beach shoot was captured perfectly. We love how effortless and light this entire day feels, and know you’ll love it, too!
From Amanda: Inspired by the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean from a trip to Malibu, California, the Spring Lake Bath + Tennis Club was the perfect venue to bring back those memories. The calm waters of the ocean on a warm but breezy Spring day had me reminiscing about that time. With the beach views being directly across from the venue, I knew that we would get the most magical shots when the sun started to set.
When I came up with the concept of an Al Fresco beachy shoot, I immediately knew that I wanted Molly from Molly Sue Photography to capture this. Her light + airy photography emulated the style + vibe that I was hoping to create. Chelsie from Flower Child Florals, who grew up on the West Coast, created the most beautiful white + organic feeling arrangements. Everything she designed from the tabletop, to the bar florals on the beach, was so romantic + effortless, which completed our overall vision + design.
So much thought + preparation was put into every single detail + piece of décor. From the hand lettered deckled edged menus with watercolor paint created by the talented Alane Gianetti from Write Pretty for me, to the pink Himalayan sea salt pouring out of a jetty inspired salt keeper. The tabletop items from Borrowed Blu were the perfect combination of blues, grays + crystal glass. The bar + lounge area, provided by Rustic Drift, reminded me of being on the calm, serene beaches of Malibu, California.
My inspiration was complete with the most beautiful gowns from our local bridal boutique. An elegant, but more formal lace gown by Miss Stella York that had buttons going all the way down the train with a classic updo, was the perfect fit for the venue. Then letting loose onto the beach by switching the hair to a fishtail braid with the most airy + flowy gown by Mikaella Bridal.
