Mermaid Bride

Posted on July 16, 2013 at 10:45 PM

  You knew they existed right?  We were inspired by mermaids and what one might wear for her wedding day.  We think we captured a raw and wild under the sea look...


Nothing tame and girly, everything in her bouquet had to look like it was alive and maybe locally gathered from her under the sea, garden home.    I used golden ginger beehive, shell calla lilies, sea grass, sea green fern frods and more.

Her veil is fish netting decorated in sea grass and an assortment of sea colored greens chosen for contrasting texture. We did not want it to cover her purple gills though, as we think she should be proud of the mythical ethnicity. 

Head veil and modeling by Abby, bouquet by Laurie.  Its sort of annual summer tradition, every year when Abby comes to visit Portland we save one day for a bridal design and shoot.  We were super inspired this year to make it happen and as usual we got to the end of the week and had one day to buy, create and shoot our ideas.

What do you think, did we pull it off?  Any ideas for next summer?
