You guys are going to love this ethereal elopement styled shoot from Viva L’Event and Vanessa + Thaniel Photography. The team was “inspired by the ocean – delicate and light in a way that seems too transcendent for this world, yet profoundly deep and unknown – much like the journey to finding sublime love with your mate.” The details are so gorgeous. Complementing the stunning beachside backdrop of the untamed elements were a soft, muted color palette, a gloriously chic and voluminous crop top gown, cascading untamed florals and greenery by Viva L’Event, and silk ribbon accents from Natalie Stopka. We’re especially drawn to the vintage trailer from Ida Lou Weddings—SO adorable. Lucky for us Vanessa + Thaniel we behind the lens to capture incredible shots of the details and even more beautiful shots of the couple, in love on the beach. We know you’ll love the beauty of the shoot as much as we do!
From Viva L’Event:
We loved the transitional looks throughout the day, from the bridal luncheon-ready romper (shouldn’t every bride have a bridal romper!?) to her sweet lingerie captured in an adorable vintage trailer – available for rent as a light and beautiful mobile bridal suite, and perfect accommodations for the non-traditional wedding.
Stunning hand-drawn calligraphy graced a sentimental, personalized handkerchief from the groom to his bride, the keepsake vows, invitations, elopement announcements, and a gorgeous farewell banner with the couple’s favorite quote by E.E. Cummings: “You are my sun, my moon and all my stars.” Standing hand-in-hand, encircled by a driftwood altar, serenaded by the crashing waves and lit by the setting sun, they exchanged vows in an intimate setting and became husband and wife.
