sea + sand

here's a little something-something to close out the unofficial end of summer.  with the help of my beloveds, i put together a beach-inspired photo shoot.

the setting is a couple celebrating a very special date, the day after wedding or perhaps a one year anniversary with an intimate picnic.  the tablescape, flowers and clothing have been inspired by the sea + sand.

location:  crane's beach, ipswich, massachusetts
flowers:  bouquet and centerpiece consist of snowbound dinner plate dahlias, white ball dahlias and another white decorative form dahlia, combo roses, garden snow roses, baby blue tweedia, cream lisianthus, white astilbe, white button matricaria, dusty miller, oregano and mountain mint
dress:  alice + olivia (belt is from anthrolopologie)
