After perusing this playful surf-inspired editorial guide member Michelle of Julep & Belle Photography sent our way, we’re so down to see how this inspires those of you with a beach wedding in mind. Set at The Montauk Beach House, it’s got not one, but two adorable, alternative wedding dresses from NK Bride and a laidback design with details by Vela Stories:
Isn’t this flower-adorned bridal separate the cutest ever? Check out the back:
So fun for an intimate beach wedding or elopement!
Michelle says, When putting this idea together, I wanted to show a modern take on a beach wedding leaving behind the pastels and bohemian feels and incorporating bright pops of color and outfits that had flare instead. Being buddies with the folks over at The Montauk Beach House, I got them on board to showcase their gorgeous boutique hotel as a perfect place to have an intimate wedding. I also had the opportunity to work with Montauk based, real life couple and surfers(!), Demi and Paul as our models. It was important to me to find a real couple to shoot with so their energy would come across in the photos and I think their love and light-hearted spirits really came through.
As promised, here’s dress #2. Brooklyn-based Nathalie of NK Bride creates bespoke wedding dresses that are entirely custom made, from the initial discussion to the finished product. See more of her work here.
Demi’s first look is a two piece dress adorned with flowers and a second look with a modern take on cape sleeves. Paul wore a blue Paul Smith suit which photographed beautifully. To continue with this incredible team, Jamie Dorr of Li Bridal Design created gorgeous and unique hair for Demi to rock and Cherise Lorèn did the makeup, creating a beautiful beachy glow on Demi. Demi also wore a few pieces of handmade jewelry from Hushed Commotion and Le Chic as well as blue velvet Nina shoes.Flowers By Beth in Amagansett put together the most perfect tropical bouquet of bright pink peonies and anthurium.
