Yo ho, yo ho, a Pirate’s wedding for me! With the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise in theaters this weekend, I thought now would be the perfect time to showcase some romantic Pirates inspired wedding inspiration.
This styled Pirates of the Caribbean wedding shoot is the result of a few Los Angeles wedding vendors coming together to create some magic. Raelyn of Raelyn Elizabeth Photography, Tiffany of Baldwin Bridal and Events, and Stacy of Sylver Weddings and Events brought this vision to life. “My team and I are big fans of all things Disney and fairy tales AND all things wedding! We are a group of wedding vendors who love to create inspiration for off-beat, Disney-loving brides and grooms. When we first heard there would be another Pirates of the Caribbean movie coming out this year, we knew we HAD to create a wedding shoot inspired by all things Pirates.”
The vendor team chose Coronado Island in San Diego, CA for their ceremony location. Obviously a beach wedding is necessary for a Pirates theme. The gorgeous sail backdrop was created by Craft Menagerie on Etsy.
The stunning bridal gown was custom created by designer Deborah Lindquist. “I’m an eco conscious designer and work with a combination of vintage, organic, and sustainable materials. Aly’s two piece gown is created from vintage lace and organic linen, with contrast burgundy and black ruffles at the hem of a bias skirt with a train. For the evening as the day gets chilly, she’s wearing a reincarnated cashmere shrug with ruffles at the bottom of the 3/4 sleeve. Shrugs are a perfect choice to keep the chill away but keep your arms free for all the hugs. For the jewelry I took the “more is more” point of view. The Victorian Bat created 2 custom necklaces with a pirate reference that we layered together. One is a velvet choker, one a longer necklace. The big chunky topaz and quartz rings worn by both bride and groom were designed and provided by Safia Day Jewelry. Opulent and pirate-like. For Cole’s wedding look, The Costume House in North Hollywood came to the rescue. Cole is wearing a vintage olive toned Georgian Coat from the 1700s. Together with the wool sash also from the Costume House mixed together with current era shirt and pant, the pirate reference is clear but creatively modern.”
The reception spot is The Tipsy Crow in San Diego. The dark wood and opulent details reminded the team of the original Club 33 at Disneyland.
There are so many details to love here, from the invitation suite with the wax seal to the tablescape with red and purple florals to the pearls and jewels decorating the cake. Everything about this Pirates of the Caribbean wedding is so gorgeous and elegant!
Be sure to also watch the beautiful video by Take on Me Productions! “Decades of Hollywood films, movie trailers, and music videos influenced us to produce a video that is engaging, storytelling, emotional, and memorable. We incorporated a number of touches from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, including dramatic camera movement, wide cinematic shots, following the action, and most importantly the chemistry between the characters (in this case our couple).”
