Boho Summer Bride

If warm summer days and dreamy boho details speak to your wedding dreams, be prepared to swoon over this stunning Boho bridal photoshoot that we did at the magnificent Bonnet Island (Jersey Shore). Kay English Photography captured the love, details and romance of the day. It was truly one of my favorite professional days!


The day started wth the sun coming up across the Atlantic Ocean and we were all abuzz with one of the most beautiful gowns I have ever seen by Hayley Paige. It was just spectacular. Form fitting lace the color of sand on the top with a flowing skirted bottom that just seemed to sweep along the shore line. We knew this beauty of a dress needed something out of the ordinary when it came to a veil but we were concerned that a regular lace veil would be too distracting. Keeping with the whole Boho vibe, we used hemp rope and braided the head piece and glued live daisies on trailing hemp strands. The results were better than we could have even imagined.


What would any bride be without a beautiful bouquet of flowers. We love the “just gathered” look as if the couple was walking the beach before the wedding and gathered the flowers along the way. The soft Pantone palette make the whole “look” soft, calm and oh so boho romantic.


Bonnet Island, Weddings of Distinction, has a rustic, sweet chapel on their property. It was only natural to incorporate some beach and water themed decor to give it more of a boho feel. We especially love the beach worn oars we found at a flea market that framed the entrance way.

arm ocean breezes and a perfect sunset made a beach reception the perfect way to end the exciting day. Oyster shells dipped in gold acted as table seating placement cards and sea grass with tucks of brightly colored florals replaced the standard flower arrangement. Random colored bottles added a soothing watercolor feel across the table coupled with the paled blue linen napkins.


While most would not place their beautiful wedding cake in the ocean, we couldn’t resist having a little fun with a piece we fondly call “Fiona.” As if washed away at sea, vintage teapots, bottles and of course, the cake were caught in the macrame netting as almost a gift from nature.
