A bride, a beach, and a giant floral arch: that’s all Ashley Steffens needed to inspire a whimsical, romantic photoshoot during her vacation to the Outer Banks of North Carolina! Planned on a whim with only 3 wedding professionals and 1 model, this intimate shoot puts the spotlight on excellent craftsmanship in florals, fashion, and photography.
Ashley tells us: Although I hadn’t seen the exact location yet, when I was planning I knew I wanted to capture something that reflected the gorgeous colors of the sunset glimmering on the ocean water. This beach is located in the middle of nowhere in the Outer Banks, stunning with its huge dunes and magnificent sunsets full of inspiration.
Let’s have a look at how it all came together, with photos by Ashley Steffens Photography:
Dream scenario, right here!
Bells and Whistles Wedding & Event Design let no creative rock go unturned with an array of floral designs! This circle arch is the stuff of dreams, but we’re just as smitten with the bride’s cuff, headpiece, and cascading bouquet!
Erin Foley of RCB Fashion is the designer behind the bride’s ethereal gown — the perfect choice for a beachy wedding.
Sooo pretty!! And we’re loving these dresses for a beachy, boho look:
That sunset! The water! All of it! Such lovely, lovely work by this talented team. Perfect inspiration for a bridal shoot before or even after the wedding, right? Thanks to Ashley for allowing us to share!
