Today’s post isn’t a real wedding but real wedding inspiration for your destination wedding.  The photography and hair and makeup team of Shelby Leigh Photography and Modern Bridal Studio got together at a private residence in Chesapeake Beach, MD with a handful of vintage dresses and wanted to showcase what destination wedding beauty can look like.  To start – a black bridal gown!

Then they opted for a bit more of a boho chic look with messy waves perfect for beach wedding hair.

From there, with luggage in tow, this couple got into their vintage characters as if they were waiting for a train to take them away on their honeymoon.

What a great twist on a bun for your big day!  Up do’s keep your hair from blowing away in the wind when you’re saying I do outside or in a place with adverse weather.

Braids are also still very much on trend for weddings, whether a full braid or a tiny one along your hairline that one might almost miss.
