At long last we are thrilled to be finally sharing these images with you...and we don't think we could keep them under wraps for a second longer!
A while back we had the wonderful honor of styling a shoot in tropical Playa del Carmen, Mexico along with a team of incredible talent. Over two short days we organized a total of six different shoots complete with six different bridal looks to show how many different options a destination bride has. Below are the first three shoots captured on the grounds of theÂ gorgeousÂ El Taj Resort
. featuring two fantastic models who also happen to be a very cool real life couple! Take a peek at the fabulous images from Carla Ten Eyck
and scroll to the bottom for all the details!
Here are a few words from our friend and photog - extraordinaire, Carla Ten Eyck about the entire shoot and it's overall inspiration:
"Our creative team travelled to Playa del Carmen, Mexico for a fashion inspired, destination wedding shoot. Our goal was to show brides many different fashion options that are appropriate for a destination wedding. We styled our model in different looks from classic and demure to sultry and dramatic. According to stylist, Beth Chapman, âfashion choices for a destination wedding are endless, as long as the fabric of your gown is lightweight and weather appropriateâ.
As one of our locations was the Balinese inspired luxury resort, El Taj, several of our fashion looks had an exotic, Indonesian feel to them. We used bright colors inspired by the Mexican culture, landscape and architecture throughout each shoot, incorporated either through the fashion, make up, flowers or the dÃ©cor.Â Designer Ivy & Aster created a custom laser cut lace gown with a soft, blush underlay which was inspired by the delightful surroundings of Playa del Carmen."
Stay tuned to the blog because early next week we will be revealing Part II of this destination weddingÂ extravaganza!
