If you love travelling on the whole and sailing too, this wedding editorial is sure to excite you very much! This elopement editorial was created by Emily of Lace & Brass Events and photographer April Zelenka, and it’s a sailboat elopement with all the little details sprinkled throughout: It all took place at Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands, and every bit of this celebration is influenced by the location itself.
The bride was wearing a sleek blush gown? It’s by Coralie Beatrix on Etsy, and would make for a lovely bridesmaid dress too. She was also wearing a statement necklace, some flowers in her hair and a floral posie on her arm. The groom was rocking a grey suit, a black tie and a creative boutonniere.
The goal was to incorporate elements of earth, wind, and water throughout the entire design. All of the pottery was custom made by a local artist. The beeswax candles were hand poured right on Madeline Island. The earthy tones of the dress, florals and décor match perfectly to the sea caves and cliffs of the Apostle Islands. The ceremony and dinner table were staged on the cliffs of Madeline Island overlooking Lake Superior. Kudos to Bash Calligraphy on nailing the earthy-yet-modern theme on the menus and invites.
An exquisite 57’ luxury sailboat from Superior Charters sailed the couple to Madeline Island from Bayfield, Wisconsin. The wind we see beautifully in the waves of the dress, her flowing hair and the draping fabric on the ceremony arch and dinner table. While on the sailboat the water reflections were ever-changing, especially during sunset.
