Maybe your vision of a princess was never Cinderella, but Ariel. The sea calls to your inner siren. We get it. Sun-kissed shorelines with the luster of pearls dance in our heads too. That’s why when Manette Gracie’s seaside wedding fairytale inspiration dropped in our lap, we instantly gravitated toward the mermaid with her MeaMarie Bridal Atelier rhinestone encrusted gown. The rugged coastline of Anacortes, Washington, at the Walla Walla University Rosario Beach Marine Laboratory presented the most enchanting sandy setting. With B. Jones Photography behind the lens, we get to drift away into all the romance this vision creates for us dreamers and those planning their seaside nuptials. With all the natural beauty surrounding the Pacific Northwest, it’s enough to make you believe there’s something more waiting just below the surface – like a beautiful mermaid ready to leave the sea to join her love on shore.
