Styled Shoots

Shades of Purple at La Jolla Cove

The inspiration for this romantic elopement overlooking the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean was formed from the Pantone colour “ultraviolet” and the colours of the beach itself. Ashley Radosav, of Ashley Nicole Events, Inc, and Joy Bijedic of Being Joy Photography, created this whimsical, yet elegant elopement on the beach featuring shades of purple with a touch of navy and gold. Real life couple Malwina and Shane gladly stepped in to help them showcase their vision.

Malwina wore a custom Alyssa Kristen bridal gown was the perfect complement to the crashing ocean waves with a simple, but sophisticated lace design. Flora Hair and Makeup transformed an already beautiful woman into a bridal beauty keeping her hair and makeup soft and natural. With her hair softly pulled away from her face the remaining curls flowed down her back. To complement the various shades of purple Shane was dressed in a thinly striped purple button-down shirt paired with a navy blue and purple diagonally striped tie and pulled together with his classic navy suit.

Keeping with west coast vibes, Wyld Blooms created a stunning larger than life bridal bouquet and table display with bold pops of purple, lush greens and a touch of pussy willow. The chairs from, Classic Party Rental, mimicked the colour of driftwood found along the sand. Shiny gold silverware sat on either side of a beautiful gold and white place setting topped with Nat Sweets edible cookie place cards staying on point with the 2018 trend. Not only were they pieces of art, but apparently they were absolutely delicious! They selected gold rather than silver for the accent colour because it brought a warmth to the setting just like the sun.

Meredith, from Studio M Creations, wanted to create a vision of elegance and luxury by designing an acrylic invitation to let the natural surroundings and the sand enhance an already beautiful invitation suite.

While they spent the majority of their time in the little-secluded cove for the more intimate portion of their wedding day, one of the most unexpected additions to the shoot was the seals at La Jolla Cove. Standing among the seals in the golden setting sun was nothing less than magical.
