poetic ocean-themed bridal editorial

Inspired by the poem Ocean by Benjamin Franklin Field (read it here), today’s stunning bridal inspiration shoot from Kyle John Photography truly speaks to the romance, mystery, power and beauty of the sea. The way this creative team transformed the shores of Lake Michigan into an ethereal dreamland is really quite extraordinary!

One of my favorite details in this editorial, titled sea + sand, is the rough stone mineral jewelry. It’s such a thoughtful compliment to the ocean setting and a modern twist to add to the vintage wedding dress. Along with a careful selection of earthy details, gorgeous calligraphy, and luscious floral design, sea + sand is gracefully poetic!
