A Little Mermaid Inspired Weddings – The Details!

Jessica Frey Photography, Coral & Teal wedding ideas, beach wedding ideas, nautical stationary,coral and teal wedding

A year ago, I combined my love of Disney princesses with my wedding photography to help inspire brides today who wanted to create a modern and elegant wedding inspired by elements of Fairy Tales!  After producing a Snow White, Sleeping Beauty & Beauty & the Beast weddings (and our Little Mermaid fairy tale shoot found HERE) we’ve now created an amazing nautical/beach wedding with some great touches from our favorite, The Little Mermaid!!  I didn’t want to do a ‘beach’ wedding per se and really wanted it to speak to the love story between Ariel & Eric.  I wanted to incorporate touches of Ariel’s love for humans, while also including their new world together….while also having touches of ‘the sea’!   With the help of some amazing vendors and friends, we headed to a beach in beautiful Malibu, CA – fought the crowds and set up a mini wedding!!!

I hope these details inspire you to dream big and design your wedding using modern and classy details!!  Congratulations to all you Disney brides out there – let us know what you think!!

    So, so, so pretty! I love all the details. I think you need to collect all the stationery you’ve done shoots or workshops with this year and somehow do an end of the year wrap up post with them. They’re too pretty not to be photographed again! See you tomorrow darling!

    I love this! Where did you find that pipe? I am having a Little Mermaid themed wedding and have not been able to find anything like it.

    This is a stunning wedding! All details are perfect! I don’t have any chance to have a little mermaid wedding but a ceremony of the same theme. Well done!
