Lighthouse Bridal Inspiration | Newport, Oregon

May 20, 2017

For those who know me, it’s no secret that the Oregon Coast is my favorite place in the world. I’m constantly making excuses to go there, and I’m always looking for opportunities to photograph there. The beauty of its rocky and ever changing landscape is mesmerizing to me, and I recently felt drawn to create something in honor of that. My goal for this editorial was to embody and capture the soft, wild elegance of the Oregon Coast. The color palette was born out of the bold, rich, and deep colors that can be found on the most tempestuous days at the coast, and I was inspired to create a unique take on an ocean themed editorial. I was also drawn to and influenced by the sentiment and romance behind this quote: “When he kisses her, storms rise beneath her skin. For she is the ocean, and he, her moon.” – Author Unknown.

I reached out to a few amazing local vendors, and with their help, we brought my vision for this editorial to life. Every aspect and detail was guided by our desire to emulate the mood, romance, and untamed beauty that can be found on the coast.Sewell Sweets designed an incredible cake inspired by stormy ocean skies and crashing waves. Brenna Burnett Designs created gorgeous floral arrangements embodying the coast’s untamed, yet elegant beauty. The ring, provided by Susie Saltzman, represented the constant refining of the landscape as the waves come and go. Anna Campbell’s delicate bridal dress, provided by Brides for a Cause, was a perfect compliment to the smooth and strong lighthouse and rock covered beach. The table settings provided by Something Borrowed PDX, linens from Party Crush Studio, and paper creations by Off the Vine Calligraphy + Design were the finishing touches that brought everything together. Each member of our team did an incredible job bringing this idea to life, and it was truly a privilege to be able to work with such talented vendors!
