Beach Wedding Styled Shoot

This beach inspired Wedding Photo Shoot is a collaboration I was
delighted to work on with Shannon Kelley Photography in Knoxville.

Shannon was inspired by the beach to style a stylish wedding tablescape meantfor a small celebration with light green, blue and sand shades.  She wanted to include bottles, seaglass and shells. 

I styled the table with ivory linens to represent the sand and provide us with a light canva. From there I added the sea glass bottles, shells, starfishes, votive holders with the accent colors we wanted to work with. While keeping the place settingin light shades, the accent colors in the place cards, favor fans and the back of the chairs combined the beach inspiration we wanted to present.

I wanted to add a small dessert to include our beautiful ocean inspired
cake and just the right amount of sweet, a rock candy stick!
The dessert table colors are the opposite of the guest table inverting the
colors around to simulate the ocean. The ocean with it's message bottles,
rocks, shells, starfish and even pearls.

Amanda Cursaro at Baci Designer created a beautiful and delicate wedding invitation suite
as well as table numbers, menu napkin rings and place cards.

for a centerpiece variation, we also used the bottles only...take a look!
