Just because you’re planning a destination wedding doesn’t mean you have to for-go all the details you’d incorporate if you were tying the knot at home. It’s easier than ever to find amazing creatives just about anywhere who’d be thrilled to bring your dream day to life. Enter Purple Meadows Events and Design + Roots & Stems. These gals were inspired by the idyllic coastal town of Laguna Beach + wanted to stage a beachside affair that would satisfy any couple traveling in from afar to celebrate their nuptials. And lucky for us Anokiart Photography was there to capture every last detail for all eyes to see. Here’s a bit more about the setting from Debra of Purple Meadows:
Our mixed colors of corals, blues and peaches was influenced by the earthy tones of the ocean, sunset and and sandy beach. We wanted to create a unique ceremony backdrop so we bought an old canoe shelf, repurposed it and painted it with soft colors of coral and cream. We added canoe paddles and our creative partner Root and Stems added her unique floral touches to create a unique ceremony altar that we set on the beach which looked terrific against the Laguna sunset.
What a great floral headpiece + dress – just loving the back!
Driftwood + florals = a match made in heaven!
Thanks so much to the following creatives for sending this one our way! We’re totally thinking about skipping off to the beach after seeing this shoot! Who’s with us?!
