Romance Ahoy! Check out this Charming Nautical Themed Wedding Styled Shoot

An oceanfront nautical theme wedding styled shoot navigates maritime elements into one lovely day by the sea!

We love seashells by the seashore and when you add in two people in love with their love for the ocean you get a truly nautical affair. Sophia and Rado met on a cruise line where they both worked, fell in love and traveled the world together so this real couple's styled shoot had to reflect their love of the sea. With natural elements of seashells and sea life with globes and colored glass, this wedding styled shoot has these two ocean lovers floating away in a vessel of love like the fabled Owl and the Pussycat!

Beautiful moody blue ocean wedding styled shoot brings mermaid style to life

A long time ago when Taryn Nagy Holland, lead photographer of Great Woodland Photography, was getting married, she discovered the Shack at Windansea in La Jolla and knew the location just begged to be properly styled and photographed. This Moody Ocean wedding styled shoot is a beautiful reflection of the subtle colors and energies of the ocean at La Jolla and of some beautiful wedding decor and elements brought together by one talented team! 

Each participant in this shoot wrote a little bit of their vision into creating this moody ocean shoot's style:

Cherished Rentals - The muted colors of the Terrain Collection from Cherished Rentals was an easy choice for this seaside tablescape. Each setting was adorned with intricate vintage silverware and chargers, then paired with an eclectic mix of mid-century glassware.

Sweet Emma Lou - Sweet Emma Lou cooked up a dark chocolate semi naked cake adorned with beautiful florals and edible gold leaf. In addition, we created a intimate cake table set up with the help of amazing rentals with a macrame backdrop.

Black Lotus Design - Black Lotus Design provided the bridal bouquet, boutonniere, table centerpieces, arch flowers, garlands, flowers for the cake display and custom-dyed ocean-inspired azure ombre textiles.

Dapper Vintage Rentals - Dapper Vintage Rentals providing speciality vintage rentals in San Diego, CA for weddings, soirees, photoshoots and events. Husband & Wife team, Josh & Maheli founded Dapper after planning their own wedding and giving it that vintage touch. Dapper vintage rentals provided unique chairs for the table setting set-up, mint blue settle for the lounge, and cake display table.

TheMINTERY, founded by Angela Fowler, is a creative studio specializing in event styling + furniture revival - creating, building, and refurbishing personalized pieces to bring out the unique face of each project. She constructed a 12' arch from found branches courtesy of a local ranch in Alpine, refurbished and styled the Queen Anne table used in the tablescape and created the bride's shell crown.

Made by Meer - Nikki Meer, owner of Made by Meer, created a watercolor invitation suite with a blue wash to mimic the ocean. She hand painted place cards and a table number to match. A wooden "Cheers" sign adorned the cake table and a fabric love quote was painted for the bride and groom to hold.

Beautiful, contemporary white Military wedding wows at MoCA La Jolla

There's nothing quite like a modern white wedding and what better place to have one than overlooking the ocean at the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla ?

Meredith and Allen first met in flight school when they were becoming military pilots. Allen was swimming a mile for his survival training and Meredith was counting laps for him. Meredith’s friend Liz totally embarrassed her by telling her friends in Allen’s class that Meredith though he was cute. Luckily, Allen thought Meredith was pretty cute as well and the rest is history.... Allen proposed to Meredith on the beach in Del Mar after dining at the beautiful Jake’s restaurant for dinner. They watched the sunset and when the crowds started to disperse, he thought the time was right and got down on one knee and proposed. Their beautiful white wedding was perfect. They exchanged vows at the All Hallows Catholic Church on top of Soledad mountain which overlooks La Jolla. Guests then met up at the stunning Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla for a unique wedding experience surrounded by contemporary art exhibitions and the beautiful styling of Madmade Designs, with delicious food from local favorite Giuseppe’s Catering.
