If romance is what you’re going for for your big day, you may want to pay extra close attention to today’s gorgeous wedding editorial, conceptualized and captured by Koby + Terilyn of Archetype Studio. What makes this setting come to life? Well according to Terilyn, it’s the tables draped with silk chiffon blowing in the breeze. The coral plates with mother-of-pearl and fine crystal and sterling for the place settings. Romantic florals hinting at the colors of an ocean sunset. And of course, guests would find their seats by reading the hand written calligraphy on the sails of a model tall ship!
The 1877 Tall Ship Elissa was such a gorgeous backdrop for this shoot + is the last ship left of her kind in the world! We believe there must be an amazing feeling of magic + romance when stepping aboard…
The story dreamt up by Koby + Terilyn follows a ship captain’s daughter, planning her wedding along side her childhood friend. Choosing elements that highlight her favorite memories of the ship at sea…
Take me to the ocean; Let me sail the open sea. To breathe the warm & salty air, and dream of things to be.
– Erica Billups
And the ultra-romantic blooms made the setting even dreamier. Maria Maxit went with high texture + a mix of pastel and berry tones to achieve a compelling, impactful feel.
SO much love for this little cake from Cakes by Jula!
A big thanks to the talented team below for letting us sail away with them this afternoon!
