Hornblower California Wedding Inspiration.
Every single detail about this styled shoot aboard a Hornblower Cruise in California teems with romance. From the sophisticated color palette to the unique place settings and acrylic signage, there was not a single element untouched, curating an inventive, modern, and moving twist on the cruise ship wedding.
The invitation suite boasts a unique design with delicate notes of femininity. The clear acrylic map for guests is a neat, novel idea.
The flowers throughout this shoot boast a quality worthy of a Shakespearean romance with their moody burgundy and purple tones, as well as feminine lavender and lush greenery. The bride’s bouquet is tied with a ribbon styled with texture – a notable quality the team incorporates throughout the shoot.
The bride experiences this event in a blush beaded dream of a gown. The V-neck stunner features intricate detail and a flattering silhouette. She goes sans veil and simply lets the breeze capture the wispy tendrils of her hair.
The groom sports a classic black tuxedo with a black bow tie and white button down shirt. Together, they make a timeless pair.
With the Golden Gate Bridge in their midst, the couple hold hands as the captain directs the ceremony. Standing between two beautiful floral arrangements and a railing bedecked in greenery, the bride and groom are all smiles.
The bride looks picture-perfect standing next to a vintage velvet sofa. Its jeweled-hue pairs impressively with the collection of colors in her bouquet.
The styled shoot truly captures the level of romance afforded a couple who marry aboard a ship, watching the sunset and sailing through the water.
The acrylic menu signage is a truly impressive original idea that makes an impact.
Velvet and gauze linens, marble details, crystals, rose gold flatware, and a unique collection of china are just the start to the reception space. Modern silver chairs add a contemporary flair to the celebration.
The couple toast one another in front of the head table that’s outfitted with rose-colored linens, as well.
The cake is presented on an antique trunk outside near the same velvet sofa from earlier in the day. The marbled creation drips with white ganache and overflows with garnishes such as cherries, macaroons, blueberries, flowers and more.
Much like their marriage, the couple are at the wheel, ready to take on life’s journey together.
They are privy to a slow sunset out over the water, where the light fades into the horizon and the shadows grow darker with every minute – and yet, they have each other.
It’s difficult to conceive the amount of romance included in this styled wedding shoot near the San Francisco Bay. It takes the wedding cruise and elevates the elegance and sophistication to new heights. What promises to be an memorable experience transforms into a truly amazing day and night on the water.
