Growing up, my friends and I would play the “desert island” game on almost a daily basis. You know the one… the “what would you take if you were shipwrecked and stranded on a desert island” game? Yep. We rocked that. And even though I don’t remember any of my answers (I am guessing they were NKOTB and lip gloss-related), I can guarantee one thing. They didn’t look a thing like this breathtaking shoot from the talented Rebecca Arthurs and Opihi Love Boutique Rentals & Event Design; a shoot sooo lovely and sooo amazing, it’s giving an entirely new meaning to the word pretty. See why in the full gallery.
From Rebecca Arthurs… The Huialoha Church was the ideal location for this Shipwreck Wedding Styled Shoot. Set on the rugged coastline of Maui, the historical landmark was an epic spot for this Bride and Groom who wanted to explore the untouched beauty of the island. It’s a wonder places like this still exist.
The Bride wore a wild organic silk gown by Lindee Daniel. The natural color of the raw fibers in the dress gave the impression of sea foam crashing on the shore, while the clouds loomed out to sea like lingering pirate ships. The table design was a mix of eclectic and antique items found by Opihi Love. A vintage ship calender was re-purposed into placemats. Custom driftwood escort cards, engraved by Miss B Calligraphy, and gorgeous blooms arranged by Stephanie Shepherd adorning the table top. Across the bluff, a plush lounge area arrayed with pillows by Blue Jane Maui, beckon you to sit and stay awhile. This couple may be shipwrecked but they are certainly surviving in style!
