You can say what you want about weddings, but today, it’s going to be all about the modern and colorful beach boho style in a destination setting! This amazing morning beach destination styled wedding shoot is full of beautiful eye candy! Everything from the colors of the flowers to the gorgeous décor is an exciting contrast to the lovely blue ocean, sky, and sand. The gold on the cake and the trendy style just proves that going boho can still be chic, elegant, and oh-so-romantic. The parachute dress, bomber jacket, and kimono pillows were created by Eco-designer Deborah Lindquist that intertwines with the bohemian theme and just adds to the simple sophistication of the overall style. The hair and makeup were designed to give our African American bride an enhanced and natural look. Thanks to Raelyn Elizabeth Photography, for showcasing this lovely styled shoot.
We’re All About the Details!
Deborah Lindquist is a eco-conscious clothing, accessories, and home decorative accessories designer. The gown she created for the bride is a gown made of a vintage parachute. Light as a feather, it is a unique but also very practical gown for a beach wedding. They got splashed by waves, windblown, and covered in sand but the gown dried in a flash and looked perfect throughout the day. The windy beach day was perfect for creating a dramatic flair with the long full train flying.
The gold vintage kimono fabric bomber jacket is a perfect addition to the gown as the temperatures chill later in the day. The vintage kimono pillows accent the relaxation area on the sand atop a natural jute rug.
Take this Advice
Be personal in your approach to your wedding. This beach wedding is simple but dramatic, romantic and colorful. The overall effect is effortless and uniquely creative. Weddings can be done all kinds of ways, from the most planned, extravagant event to an elopement. The important thing is that it reflects the personality of the couple and that its fun. I truly think that fun is an important part of a wedding. The couple should be relaxed, happy, and have a good time. And of course a fabulous dress is important. I’m happy to help with that. ~Deborah Lindquist/Wedding Designer
