Hide and Beau Seek: Marina & Swiss Dots

When you live by the water, you have to take advantage of it! When picking our next spot for our Hide and Beau Seek minishoot, we wanted something coastal, but something different then the beach or dock. So we chose a marina! Surrounded by a gorgeous sunset and endless boats and water, the Isle of Hope Marina was the perfect fit. We wanted to create a few looks with our dress, so we brought some of our favorite accessories with us! For the gown we chose a swiss dot a line gown by Ti Adora, that is oh so feminine and soft, and so perfect for a water side wedding. Keep scrolling to see how we styled this Ti Adora gown! A huge thank you to our dear friend Wendy at Apt B Photography for always wanting to take these adventures with us! 

For the next look we added one of our favorite accessories: A flower crown. Well in this case, greenery! We foraged local greenery and ferns to create a unique and wild piece for our model. We also added a lace cap sleeve topper by Ti Adora, to give a second look to the gown. We love mixing textures, so mixing the lace with the swiss dot is a huge yes in our book! 

For our last look we added a cashmere shrug, since it gets chilly at night! (Even though it's been so warm lately!) This shrug by Adele Amelia is so soft and cozy, and she can customize as needed! We also had McKenzie of McKenzie Does Calligraphy make a sign, with one of my favorite E.E Cummings poem. 

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
