Seaside Wedding

Inspiration: Driftwood Beach and Monticello

Siren and sailor. We are completely seduced by this driftwood inspiration shoot by Emily Katharine of The Ganeys. It looks as though our Monticello gown has walked right out of the sea. The draped chiffon gown's washed silk and organic texture embodying the currents and waves themselves. With every detail perfected, from the abalone table runner to the delicate coral cake topper, and that sun-bleached bouquet, this seaside love story is one for the ages.

Inspiration: Kyanite by Chris Isham

This seaside shoot evokes fascinating narrative possibilities. We are not sure if we prefer imagining this bride as a sea sprite or a castaway. What we are sure of is that our Kyanite dress is choice in this beautifully marooned wedding atmosphere. With the easy jersey fabric and gorgeous draped cowl back this gown looks, and moves, like the waves. We wouldn't mind being shipwrecked here...maybe just for the weekend.
