The GORGEOUS hair and makeup was by Jaimi at Fiore Beauty. She is my go-to girl if you want to look picture perfect – plus she is just the sweetest! Really can’t recommend Jaimi more. Pretty bohemian headpiece by the lovely Lo of Lo Boheme. I also just love the Vera Wang gowns Tam from Stylish Silhouette selected for our bride and the great jewelry selections.

Playing off the shipwrecked theme, treasure chests + old rusty crowns appeared throughout the event.

Melody from Sweet and Saucy Shop created a mint green cake with nautical rope textures. She also loved the idea of the bride and groom each having their own mini cake – which I adore also! Such a perfect idea if you and you both love cake, but love different flavors. :)

Vintage milk shipping crates that looked as if they had washed upon the shore were turned onto their sides and filled with messages in a bottle. Each bottle had the name of the guest tied around it and inside was a map leading the guest to their table with a warm ‘we treasure your friendship’ message, hand written by calligrapher Laura Hooper.
