This morning we shared a dreamy, foggy wedding from the Florida Panhandle and now we’re taking a trip to the opposite coast with this truly stunning seaside editorial, shared by photographer, Corbin Gurkin + wedding dress designer, Emily Riggs.
In case you haven’t heard us gush, we’re the biggest fans of Emily Riggs. Her dresses are some of the most romantic we’ve seen and we’re always excited to see what she comes up with next. She tells us, The rocky cliffs, salty mist and a rustic ocean was the perfect backdrop for our moody beach editorial. You can always count on the Oregon coast to deliver beauty and magical elements rain or shine.
Read on for more from Emily about the two gorgeous dresses featured here + get ready to fall in love with the scene stylist Rebekah Carey McNall and the rest of the team created…
The first dress is an ethereal light and airy gown with a hand beaded and embroidered overlay with a 3 layer silk underling. This gown offers so many lovely textures. The bodice also comes with a lining which is not shown.
Doesn’t it pair so beautifully with that insanely pretty bouquet by Selva Floral Design? A perfect balance of richness + earthy textures that really capture the rustic vibe of the Pacific Northwest!
The second gown is more dark and moody which is set off by the stunning rocky cliffs behind it. This gown features a dramatic V plunge bodice made from vintage french beaded lace and an Italian silk taffeta skirt with a silk charmeuse lining.
In love!! Right?! Thanks so much to Emily for sharing the beauty + check out the rest of the team who helped bring this simple, yet perfect, shoot to life…
