Old Beach Elegance




Maria Martinez of Jamie Leigh events got her initial inspiration for this old beach/bohemian-themed styled shoot from a vintage photograph she stumbled upon.

“The photo itself was nothing out of the ordinary, but the color scheme is what drew me in,” she says. “The faded wood, gray skies and muted shades of blue and green really spoke to me. I knew I wanted to incorporate sea glass and driftwood, accented with varnished metal, oyster shells and some greenery.”

Martinez credits an amazing team of vendors, in addition to her hard work, for bringing her overall vision to life. Tidal Bay Collections was able to create custom napkin holders, which also served as name cards for each place setting, and the perfect driftwood Mr. & Mrs. sign. Cereus Art and Fluttering Flowers assembled an ideal centerpiece and helped place the final beach-y touches on the dinner and dessert tables, which were dressed with gorgeous linens from Waterford Event Rentals. Of course, we can’t miss the stunning Privée gown worn by model, Morgan.

“I’m still swooning over Tara’s shots of her,” says Martinez. “I could go on and on, but I really think the pictures speak for themselves.”
