Hipster Ariel Marries Eric in This Fantasy Beach Wedding
Real-life hipster Ariel Traci Hines marries Prince Eric in this epically creative and stylish beach wedding shoot inspired by The Little Mermaid. Seriously, from the bride's dip-dyed gown to the tutu-clad bridesmaids — and don't even get me started on the shimmery tablescapes adorned with ocean-themed delicacies — this is the sort of magical big day Disney dreams are made of. Here's more about the shoot from the team who put it together:
Many children dream of their future wedding, and most of our romantic notions about love come from childhood dreaming with a cast of fairy tale characters. In the spirit of that romantic nostalgia, we are excited to share this amazing fantasy photo shoot. In the collaboration between Your Cloud Parade, (a hip online wedding marketplace), and Traci Hines (singer/designer), a hipster mermaid faux-wedding is brought to life. The vision behind this shoot was to re-create the classic "tail" (pun fully intended) of the Little Mermaid, and transform Ariel (modelled by Traci Hines) and Prince Eric (modelled by Leo Camacho), into a modern hipster wedding couple!
The magical team included shoot designer Cloud Parade's Lauren Coats, hair and makeup by 10.11 Makeup, delicious desserts by Sweet and Saucy Shop, and florist A Blooming Bud.
