Moody Mermaid Wedding Style Shoot at La Jolla, WindanSea

I am so excited to share this Moody Mermaid style shoot I did a few weeks ago with some amazingly talented San Diego Vendors. I had the idea a long time ago, when I was getting married in La Jolla and discovered the Shack at WindanSea. The location just begs to be photographed. We all got our individual pieces together and made something beautiful and I am so proud!

So instead of trying to write about all the awesome things we did and how awesome they are,  I was so grateful that they all wrote a little blurb about what they did for our shoot. :) Enjoy! 



Cherished Rentals - The muted colors of the Terrain Collection from Cherished Rentals was an easy choice for this seaside tablescape. Each setting was adorned with intricate vintage silverware and chargers, then paired with an eclectic mix of mid-century glassware.  

Sweet Emma Lou - Sweet Emma Lou cooked up a dark chocolate semi naked cake adorned with beautiful florals and edible gold leaf. In addition, we created a intimate cake table set up with the help of amazing rentals with a macrame backdrop.

Black Lotus Design - Black Lotus Design provided the bridal bouquet, boutonniere, table centerpieces, arch flowers, garlands, flowers for the cake display and custom-dyed ocean-inspired azure ombre textiles. 

Dapper Vintage Rentals - Dapper Vintage Rentals providing speciality vintage rentals in San Diego, CA for weddings, soirees, photoshoots and events. Husband & Wife team, Josh & Maheli founded Dapper after planning their own wedding and giving it that vintage touch. Dapper vintage rentals provided unique chairs for the table setting set-up, mint blue settle for the lounge, and cake display table.

theMINTERY, founded by Angela Fowler, is a creative studio specializing in event styling + furniture revival - creating, building, and refurbishing personalized pieces to bring out the unique face of each project. She constructed a 12' arch from found branches courtesy of a local ranch in Alpine, refurbished and styled the Queen Anne table used in the tablescape and created the bride's shell crown.

Made by Meer - Nikki Meer, owner of Made by Meer, created a watercolor invitation suite with a blue wash to mimic the ocean. She hand painted place cards and a table number to match. A wooden "Cheers" sign adorned the cake table and a fabric love quote was painted for the bride and groom to hold.
