Pacific Northwest Wedding Inspiration. Like an erstwhile passage from a beloved romance novel, this styled shoot at Cannon Beach, Ore., is remarkably soul-stirring. From the bride’s gentle blush lace gown and her deep red hair, to the moody skies and predictable weather, this shoot captures the essence of the Pacific Northwest but in a way that leaves us breathless at its beauty.
The invitation suite uses the location as its central design feature, with depictions of the beach painted lightly in blue watercolor. A maroon envelope, hand-lettered invitation, and a vintage-inspired postcard round out the eclectic collection.
The blooms cater to a spectrum of both light and dark hues. From pink roses, to berries and eucalyptus, the finished product is an emotional balance of hearty and heart-warming flowers.
The bride embraces the damp surf and lets the breeze carry her. Underneath the light pink veil is the red-haired bride who dons a rosy pout.
Her look is utterly ethereal. The graceful movement of the blush pink skirt is highlighted by the bride’s trot along the shore.
A beautiful blue vow book is a wonderful touch and unique accessory to be cherished for years to come.
The detail of the bridal gown is impeccable. Delicate pink lace covers the bodice and high neckline for a truly romantic style.
The bride displays her unique bouquet, which bursts with dark plum leaves, berries, greenery and pink roses. It’s tied with light blue and purple ribbons that dances with the breeze.
The jagged contrast of the beach in the background is the perfect way to highlight the softness of the bride's overall look.
The gown's back is exquisite with its sheer lace fabric and clean row of satin buttons.
The colors of the day were pink and gray. The bride's pink look is complementary to the beach's natural gray tones, evoking quiet elegance and allure.
While most find contempt in gray skies and chilly air on a wedding day, the beauty of Cannon Beach is undeniable in this styled shoot. The graceful gentility of the bride in a lace gown, paired with romantic florals and details, outfit this location in a most beguiling way.
