Airy blue and a hint of berry mix in this beautiful, romantic seaside elopement on our wedding blog today. We’ve seen a coastal elopement once or twice before, but we fell head over heels for this one from Keestone Events. It stands out from the crowd with and written vows in calligraphy by Letter Love Studio and a post ceremony cup of tea. The beautiful bride wore not one, but two, stunning gowns and a round cut engagement ring that gives us chills. Small details such as the groom’s floral tie and the sheen of the table linen send us over the edge. We won’t take your attention with our words any longer because all the beauty has left us breathless!

The photographer and I both have ties to Taiwan and were inspired by the beautiful coastline there. We wanted to bring that romantic mood to Dallas. I know what you are thinking – whaaat? But I kid you not, it is possible! There is a private property in Dallas where there are jagged, rocky cliffs and the bluest waters you have ever seen. That beautiful blue is all natural from the limestone on the rock.
Letter Love Studio took cues from the water and continued in that theme with delicate stationery. She used watercolor as the background, with various shades of blue from dark to light for an ombre effect. She also wrote all the lines in the romantic vows with white calligraphy, bringing an ethereal and light feeling to the shoot. It tied in nicely with the rock textures at the cliffside.
To balance out the jagged textures, we incorporated traditional arm chairs, a gold console table, and clean white plateware for a neutral look. I fell in love with the salad plates– their neat texture made it seem as if there was water in the plate. To bring all of this together, we went with romantic florals in deep red and blush tones set in a stone container for a pop of color. It was important that we showcase the unique rock surfaces, yet still maintain the soft, organic look that ties in well with the waves lapping at the beach.
Tea plays a large part in Chinese culture and we paid homage to that with an intricate teapot. There were also subtle Asian influences with the white jade chopstick holders and lacquered chopsticks.
