Anthro-Inspired Beach Wedding by Allie Lindsey Photography


This submission had me at Antro-inspired. Then I laid my eyes on these dreamy images by the ever-so-sweet Allie Lindsay and I fell completely head over heels in love with this wedding. I have to say, an older version of myself would be fairly impressed with my new appreciation for a colour palette involving any sort of green hue. It's surprisingly refreshing and pretty when used in all the right spots at a wedding. And that's exactly how Stephanie and Kenny made their 10-10-10 wedding so flipping gorg; by infusing the perfect pops of green into their big day. Those flirty Jim Hjelm bridesmaids frocks, the unique hydrangea and orchid bouquets by RSVP floral and of course that head over heels in love and simply adorable bride and groom; well what's there not to love about this wedding? 


A little leopard peakaboo under your drool-worthy Rosa Clara gown? Yes please thank you very much.



How amazing are the shots of the newlyweds on the beach? Canvas-worthy for sure right? And as for the Anthro-inspired details, Stephanie made sure to infuse as much Anthro-goodness as possible into the celebration. From the vintage inspired wreath holder around her bouquet, the little manzella trees with seashells on a string where guests could write a message to the bride and groom, the handcrafted faux photo booth with a backdrop made of old burlap and a frame painted around it and the little custom made eyeglasses and mustache props? You got it. All. Handmade.


From the bride: "It all started at the same high school; a senior and a freshmen typing away to each other on AIM. Kenny went off to college and I continued in high school then three years later our best friends reunited us and the rest is history. Long distances from Vegas to So Cal, Virginia to North Carolina and then at last together back to So Cal in 2007. Three years of grower closer and then the proposal led to an amazing wedding at La Jolla Shores, a gorgeous day on 10-10-10. It wasn't easy making it to the wedding as planning was full of stressful times. Finding the venue, the perfect day and all the perfect vendors was quite the process. Until we found Allie who not only was our perfect photographer but became a good friend and my life savior when it came to wedding planning.

Allie has all the perfect characteristics of a phenomenal photographer and helped make our day unimaginable. I first spoke with Allie on the phone and from that instant I knew we were a perfect fit. Kenny and I then met with Allie for our engagement session which was a blast. She made our session so comfortable, fun and unforgettable. From then on, we considered Allie a good friend and came to find out she grew up in Fallbrook just as we did and knew all the same people! After our engagement pictures came my bridal shower and I couldn't help but invite her as I felt so close to Allie, I loved her company and loved her fun personality. Who knew that our wedding photographer would soon be a good friend. Every time I find myself talking about Allie I will not brag any less than 30 minutes about her as I truly cannot say enough about her amazing work, personality and drive. Thank you Allie for leaving us with memories that will forever put a smile on our faces."

I love the idea of turning seaside details like star fish into rustic chic prettiness by adding a fun fabric flower and ribbon. It's amazing how simple things like that can add such a punch! Love every little bit!
