Romantic Tropical Haiti Wedding

We feel like the of the word organic, when referring to decor at least, should be defined as working with what nature has provided you with. We love this wedding because the design and color palette was drawn from the natural landscape in Haiti. The gorgeous combination of the colors pulled from the sand, ocean, and seashells combined with textures like ferns and succulents made for an absolutely stunning, yet understated event.

Here’s more from the bride:

I’m a photographer and about 4 years ago (whew!) I was covering a Baptism and Digo was a guest. It was a textbook eyes cross, conversation sparks, situation and whether you put it on perfect timing or pure chemistry (or both), we ended up spending the whole day together and haven’t left each other since. 
For our wedding, we chose to get married at Digo’s parents’ beautiful beach house north of the capital, where we had already shared countless amazing memories.
With such a gorgeous venue, I knew I wanted the decor to be understated, organic and romantic.
In terms of the colour palette and flower choices, we drew our inspiration from the surrounding environment using elements like seashells and succulents, bottles and colourful flowers. I was blown away by the final result. It was a perfect day filled to the brim with love.

Temperley London Florence Wedding Dress

For our final Bridal look of the week, we’re featuring the “Florence” wedding dress from one of our favorites, Temperly London. Thanks again to Camille, Bryce, Heidi, and Amy for all of these stunning features.

From Camille at The Dress Theory:

We are lucky to be surrounded by gorgeous gowns in our boutiques every day, but Temperly London’s “Florence” is a stand out. We love Florence for her luxe long sleeves and intricate lace. The eyelash edging adds to the timeless appeal, and the striking slim mermaid shape and fashion forward long sleeves make the dress quintessentially Temperley. We also adore this dress for its combination of soft romance and strong style.

Bryce captured this balance and translated the beauty and power of this gown, flawlessly. 

To compliment such a statement-making dress, we chose a classic cut-edge veil by Sara Gabriel, fresh makeup, and a romantic, soft up do. We envisioned delicate and dreamy styling to keep the focus on the beautiful bride and this exquisite gown. Amy and Heidi realized this vision and took it to the next level with their expertise.

Alice Temperley designs her gowns “with the aesthetic she believes in; elegant, feminine, ethereal, and timeless.” We think Florence perfectly embodies this aesthetic. This dress and other styles from Temperley London’s latest collection will be available in select boutiques, including The Dress Theory, starting this month. We cannot wait to see our brides in Seattle and Nashville try on this unforgettable wedding dress!
