These photos are PROOF – achieving a wedding aesthetic as gorgeous as an island in the Mediterranean Sea, while it may seem impossible, can actually be accomplished with the right team! Whether each individual vendor is responsible for décor, food, apparel, music or flowers, they need to mesh with one another to create the total package in a way that projects the couple’s intended vibe in a cohesive way. This Mykonos inspired wedding shoot is one of my absolute favorites. It evokes the kind of complete and utter serenity only found in paradise.
Photographer Erica Melissa captured the light and airy vibe of this shoot masterfully, letting each detail speak for itself. My favorite unique element is in the bougainvillea flower adorned copper structures that were custom built. They’re just SO creative! Wat a wonderful way to suspend a burst of natural color above the altar and tables. The rustic feel throughout the setting –from the simple wooden chairs to the Persian rug aisle and DIY decor –make for a lovely, almost bohemian backdrop that supports the pops of color in the flowers, signage, and tablescapes. And my goodness, the bride is perfection from head to toe. Island Tribe is responsible for creating this sexy, yet somehow conservative dress that echoes the bohemian vibes of the venue and has her looking as sweet as that divine dessert table.
Spoiler alert: this Mediterranean wedding inspiration was actually shot at the Penthouse at Riverside Wharf in Miami Florida if you can believe it. I was so pleasantly surprised to know that ANY bride could create such a gorgeous Mediterranean inspired wedding, no matter the destination.
