Enchanting Sea Oasis Bridal Inspiration - Rachel Haylie Photography - smitten-mag.com_0531

This enchanting inspiration takes place on a hidden beach on the Oregon coast.  The light and airy film images, thoughtful styling, and pale neutral hues are perfect for a dreamy summer wedding.  The illusion back of the dress is sexy and romantic.  Setting the table on the rocks is the perfect modern picnic elopement, but if you rather have tables of guests, these are gorgeous ideas to bring the salty air tabletop.  A bare wood table is a must with gauzy runner woven among the succulents, driftwood, and occasional seashell.  Complete the look with white flowers and gray green foliage.  Keep it elegant and save the cabana stripes for the honeymoon.
