NauticalFall Weddings
Here in SMP land, styled shoots make us happy. Especially when they happen to be as seamlessly designed as this nautical lovefest. The Flower Factory whipped all the bloomage goodies and Ainsley Rose Photography snapped behind the lens. Want to keep the pretty party going? There's sooooo much more waiting right here.

From Ainsley Rose... This elegant and whimsical seaside inspiration shoot was produced by Aly at Wild Orchid Event Management and captured by Ainsley Rose Photography. We drew inspiration from the stunning West Coast landscape of Vancouver Island. From the blue mountains to the beach outside where sea lions frequent, we wanted to reflect this beauty and serenity in every detail of the shoot. 

The venue, a beautiful 5 bedroom home (which is available to rent), perched right in Nanoose bay, is situated on an 11 acre property. The setting is something out of dream and would be an ideal place for an intimate wedding.

To create the table scape, seashells, starfish and vintage decor pieces top linen from Upright Decor. Custom navy and silver stationary by Wild Orchid Event Management add an elegant feel to the table. A bar car on the ocean's ledge is topped with Veuve champagne and flutes of hot chocolate with blue, silver and white striped and chevron straws.

The bride wore Elsa Corsi jewellery and a unique gown designed by Truvelle Bridal. The maid of honour wore an adorable custom tutu from Tulle Couture and the bridesmaid wore a long navy gown from After Five Fashion. The flowers from The Flower Factory were a focal point of the shoot. We absolutely love the whimsical flower wand with a nautical striped ribbon. Each arrangement features seashells and starfish, which blend beautifully with the soft palette of florals. The magic of this shoot is all in the details and the whimsical seaside inspiration can be felt in every element.
