This Chicago beachfront elopement is just so dreamy. Photographer Kerri Carlquist and Rustique Swan found the perfect sunset backdrop for Elena and Daniel to say I Do, with teal ocean waves crashed under a pink and blue sky. Elena wore one of our favorites from Flora and Lane, with a stunning lace bodice, low back and dramatic train, perfect for dancing! KS Stylist and . Murphy’s Beauty Law made sure she looked just like a boho beach goddess.
Elena danced around barefoot before grabbing her most colorful accessory, a magical bouquet by Aysel Cristian Floral Atelier that pulled all of the colors around them into a wonderful and unique floral arrangement. And those same flowers decorated the trendy ceremony space. When it came time for vows, these newlyweds had the cutest books from Ink, Love and Paper. Our favorite detail was the little ribbon tied to bind each one, adding a pop of color and tying these special books into the rest of the elopement decor.
After the ceremony, the couple shared a pink champagne cheers and took a tasty bite of their Spencer Trygve cake. Our favorite table top details were the dusty pink roses and sea glass place cards by Florals & Flourishes. If you’re having a beach wedding, ditch the tented paper for these beauties!
Enjoy this Pinterest-worthy inspiration as much as we did!! Happy Engaged Life! XOXO
