Surf and Sand Photo Shoot

This gorgeous, beachy shoot will make you fantasize of summer and sunshine! Inspired by Indonesian ikat prints, hints of India, Morocco, the Mediterranean, and a little bit of Hawaii. This photo shoot was featured on Wedding Chicks – Multi Cultural Beachy Wedding.
We were so excited to be a part of this colorful inspiration shoot with the uber-creative stylings by Larissa of Inviting Occasion and Jeni of Found Vintage Rentals. We also simply adore the Surf and Sand Resort, an ocean front luxury hotel in Laguna Beach. Perfectly complimenting the theme, stationary creations were provided by Paper & Thread and the striking cake by Sweet & Saucy Shop. Hair was styled by Couture Beauty, make up done by OC Make Up Artist, and the gorgeous Maggie Sottero wedding dress you see here came from The Dresser Bridal, accessories by Erin Cole and groom’s attire by Tommy Bahama. We were further delighted to see cinematography by Mission Visual, and of course, Studio EMP Inc, who beautifully captured the essence of every detail.
