Yo ho ho hooooo my goodness!! It's the Pirates of the Caribbean Wedding Styled Shoot!!

What do you get when you take a really creative team of wedding vendors and put them together with a classic tale of love and pirates?  You get an amazing and fun Pirates of the Caribbean wedding styled shoot!  It's a pirate's life for us....

Today's wedding couple wants to have fun and get creative we think this Disney inspired shoot is just the ticket to inspire you to do you! We are obsessed with the faux ship sail as backdrop!  That's just great and imaginative staging folks! Scroll down for complete credits. Bravo!! 

Photographer Raelyn Elizabeth says "My team and I are big fans of all things Disney/fairytale AND all things wedding! We are a group of wedding vendors who love to create inspiration for off-beat, Disney-loving brides and grooms. When we first heard there would be another Pirates of the Caribbean movie coming out this year, we knew we HAD to create a wedding shoot inspired by all things Pirates. We all have been living and breathing everything pirate and my spotify playlist has been playing pirate music on loop for the last month or so.

Deborah, our incredible clothing designer, offered our bride a modern yet beautiful pirate inspired on a non traditional, black and off white wedding gown.

We held the faux wedding ceremony on the iconic island of Coronado beach, in Southern California. Craft Menagerie, our custom crafter, created our gorgeous sail that was used for a non traditional ceremony arch. Baldwin Bridal and Events planned, designed and styled our stunning sweetheart table, cocktail bar, and reception decor to create a dark and edgy pirate ambiance.

The faux reception was taken place at The Tipsy Crow's upstairs lounge in San Diego, California. Baldwin Bridal and Events selected this venue because it reminds her of Disney's original dark inspired 'bachelor's pad', Club 33. With red velvet curtains, black leather chairs, old fireplaces and many gold fixtures, it was the perfect blend of everything pirate and Disney. Sylver Weddings and Events put the details together for the cake table and stationary display. The cake was created by Charly’s Cakes, and the stationery and seating chart were created by Boxed Wedding Invitations.

We have noticed with all of the millennial brides and grooms who grew up watching Disney fairytale wedding animations now seeing the live action remakes, we are seeing a new trend of off- beat brides and grooms who dream of creating their own fairytale romance in their weddings."

A sparkly, tropical, magical wedding showcases a dynamic couple's unique style

We just love it when a couple knows who they are and what they want! It sure makes their wedding celebration a day of all the things the couple is crazy about. For Felicia and Stefan it was a tropical atmosphere, great music, romantic candle lighting, their shared love of themed events, their families, and each other. Felicia chose the color palette of champagne and gold with pops of lavender, her favorite color since childhood. With added touches of sparkle in the table numbers, frames, gorgeous candle lighting everywhere, her gold heels, romantic marketing lighting throughout the tent, metallic vases and a fabulous sparkler send-off, this event at Grand Tradition Estate & Gardens captured by Brett Charles Rose Photo, was magical!

Incorporating their siblings talents was a must. Stefan's brother, a very thoughtful and profound speaker, the best man, gave the most heartfelt speech. One of the Bride's brothers, Phillip, whose charisma can capture an audience, married them and her youngest brother, a celebrated Broadway performer, serenaded them during the ceremony with "Stay With You" by John Legend and also sang as they danced to their first song as husband and wife.

Since the Groom is, in the Bride's words "an obnoxiously huge University of Miami fan", football is a huge part of their relationship. So to surprise him in a fun way and show some real team spirit, the Bride wore a garter proving her love for his team.
