The entire editorial was inspired by the idea of a handsome, shipwrecked groom eloping with a stunning mermaid. The couple sends invitations for a reception later in the year via messages in bottles, and celebrates their nuptials beachside with gorgeous, nautical details. Plates resembling the insides of oyster shells, silver fish nets, shells and a sea chest were all used to pull the look together. I just love it!
