My team and I are big fans of all things Disney/fairytale 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. We all have been living and breathing everything pirate and my spotify playlist has been playing pirate music on loop for the last month or so.
Deborah, our incredible clothing designer, offered our bride a modern yet beautiful pirate inspired on a non traditional, black and off white wedding gown.
We held the wedding ceremony on the iconic island of Coronado beach, in Southern California. Craft Menagerie our custom crafter, created our gorgeous sail that was used for a non traditional ceremony arch. Baldwin Bridal and Events planned, designed and styled our stunning sweetheart table, cocktail bar, and reception decor to create a dark and edgy pirate ambiance.
The reception was taken place at The Tipsy Crow’s upstairs lounge in San Diego, California. Baldwin Bridal and Events selected this venue because it reminds her of Disney’s original dark inspired ‘bachelor’s pad’, Club 33. With red velvet curtains, black leather chairs, old fireplaces and many gold fixtures, it was the perfect blend of everything pirate and Disney. Sylver Weddings and Events put the details together for the cake table and stationary display. The cake was created by Charly’s Cakes, and the stationery and seating chart were created by Boxed Wedding Invitations.
We have noticed with all of the millennial brides and grooms who grew up watching Disney fairytale wedding animations now seeing the live action remakes, we are seeing a new trend of off- beat brides and grooms who dream of creating their own fairytale romance in their weddings.
“With our creative imagination and a little magic we help create your fairytale dream wedding a reality”
