The idea of chartering a private catamaran off the coast of Maui just might be the only thing getting us through the rest of this Thursday! And when photographer, Mirelle Carmichael, teamed up with the gals at Opihi Love Wedding & Event Design for a stunning coastal collaboration, her long time dream of shooting an editorial on a sailboat finally came true. The ladies decided to embrace the serene vibes of the sea, and used a really pretty blue, white and green palette mixed with vintage pieces and delicate fabrics.
Mirelle says, We wanted to create something ethereal…something that gave a ‘post wedding dinner sail’ vibe with muted blues and a nautical feel. And we’re so loving the vintage-inspired vignettes that are styled perfectly for an intimate celebration or bridal shoot. Check out all the loveliness below – and don’t miss the giveaway from Mirelle Carmichael + Percy Handmade at the end of the post!
A lovely ocean-inspired invite suite by Tuktu Paper Company…
Eyeing that gorge dress? It’s the “Nicolet” gown by Truvelle. So dreamy!
And we’re kinda crazy about this lace bridal cap by Percy Handmade!
Wasn’t that stunning? We won’t judge anyone for considering dropping their wedding (or vaca) plans in favor of sailing around Maui instead!
And now, for the giveaway news you’ve been waiting for! The lovely + generous Mirelle Carmichael will be giving away an engagement session in Southern California, complete with hair and makeup, and a set of bridal hair pins from Percy Handmade!
