It’s kinda rare that a golden fall landscape goes so effortlessly with the blues and whites of the ocean (best of both worlds, right?), but Emily Delamater Photography + Lindsey of L. Brook Events knew just the place: House Island in Casco Bay, Maine. Right off the coast of Portland, it’s a private 30-acre island that feels instantly like a faraway place, with the ocean on one side, the harbor on the other. Like Emily, Lindsey, and the team below imagined, it made for a beautifully understated and organic bridal scene.

Living by the ocean is one of the best things about living in Maine because we get to experience the magical and romantic qualities of the ocean in a way that few others truly understand. The salty smell in the air; the sound of waves and water rushing onto shore; a cool, crisp ocean breeze; the rich textures of the shoreline and terrain; and the intricate and lush flora of the island are all elements that inspired this shoot.

Those wedges and foraged bouquet by Watershed Floral add a little edge to this shoot, we think!

Isn’t this tablescape dreamy? They used an antique wood + mecury glass table with a handpainted runner and vintage bottles surrounded by quartz, sea salt, coral, sea glass, and shells.

Cement planters and urns filled with loose greens and herbs; tinted glass votives in varying shades of silver, green and teal; glass and metal lanterns and a wild, foraged bouquet were other design elements we included to evoke the same magical and romantic qualities as the ocean does.

Intimate Malibu wedding | Photo by Max and Friends  |  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=85514

Doesn’t this view just instantly make you feel at ease? The Malibu coast has our hearts for sure. For their wedding, Connie and Mike kept it sweet and intimate (with only eight in attendance) at a breathtaking private residence overlooking the ocean. The venue provided the dreamy Pacific backdrop + the team at Sitting in a Tree brought C + M’s Modern California vision to life.

Thanks to Max Wanger for these flawless shots:

Roses + peonies floating on by… The pool inspired much of the color play in the event design.

The contemporary details of the house kickstarted their design. Tori of Sitting in a Tree says, Since the bride and groom live on the East Coast, they really wanted a wedding that felt like the beach without being too cliché. We incorporated dark, modern, and masculine touches (Eames chairs, wood flatware, etc.) and balanced it out with a lot of colorful brights to keep it from being too serious. The venue was right on the beach and provided the perfect backdrop for them to celebrate.

1950s bridal and wedding inspiration | Photo by Christina Karst Photography | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=85496

It all started along an oak tree lined street in Jacksonville, Florida, where stylist Taylor L. Ghost + Christina Karst Photography (remember when these two teamed up for an art gallery editorial?) met up with this charming bride Katie and her real-life maid of honor Katy. They all took their favorite feminine Audrey Hepburn and Mad Men era inspirations and set out to transform them into a very darling scene…

They gathered a team of neat vendors like Becky Cardenas of The Wilding Collective who punched up the color palette with these vibrant blooms.

From Taylor:

To create the mood and design of this inspiration shoot, I looked at the essence of Audrey: her characters, the classic style she carried so well, the way she danced through life and embraced femininity with such ease. I also took into consideration post­war attitudes and ideals prevalent in the 1950’s. I asked myself and the other vendors involved, what would the Audrey Hepburn of today be like? What would sort of bride would she be? Because the shoot features both Katie and her real­life maid of honor, it was easy to embrace those questions and really turn the feminine factor up a notch!

Just a little peek at Perfect Imperfections by Jeanne‘s striking vintage pieces. They also used this mustard shade for the ring with The Mrs. Box in our gallery below.

Taylor says, The daring lens through which Christina sees the world captured every detail in such a way that one can’t help but feel lifted and happy as they gaze upon the photos. To be honest, she makes all of those around her happy like that by being such an engaged friend and photographer. Any bride would be more than lucky to include her in their special day!

Amazing work everyone!
