Styled Shoot: Nautical Dream

Alabama Weddings Magazine is known for its incredible styled shoots produced by some of Alabama’s best creative minds each year. Now we are so excited to begin sharing submitted styled shoots from across the state to continue inspiring brides throughout the year. Every so often, a group of talented vendors will come together with an idea that they want to create, get a game plan, and go make it happen. These styled shoots featured on the AWM Blog represent the fruition of their collaborations and we are always amazed to see what other vendors in the state are producing between crazy wedding schedules and their own personal lives.

The first styled shoot submission we are thrilled to be sharing today comes to us from Dragonfly Photography and a team of South Alabama wedding pros, including shoot coordinator and stylist, Weddings and Events by Jenna Laine.  “This styled wedding shoot took place along the deep blue waters of Orange Beach, located in South Alabama,” said Jenna. “The sugary white sands of Orange Beach are a popular location for Southern weddings, so with this shoot we wanted to inspire readers by creating a beautiful, classic beach wedding with an unexpected twist.”

We adore the abundance of texture in the floral designs and flowing gowns perfect for catching the winds off the ocean. The soft tones mixed with the navy nautical stripes gives that perfect balance of feminine and masculine elements. Every detail works together perfectly to elevate the look of a beach wedding to something extremely chic and glamourous without missing the relaxed feel that makes a wedding on the coast so special. All of this is an absolute dream with the lovely natural light streaming though the room. It has us ready to stop what we’re doing immediately and escape to the beach for a weekend!
