Hipster Ariel Marries Eric in This Fantasy Beach Wedding
Traci Hines, a real-life hipster Ariel, marries her own 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 2014 shoot (which still remains one of our favorites of all time) from the team that 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. The vision behind this shoot was to re-create the classic "tail" (pun fully intended) of The Little Mermaid, and transform Ariel (modeled by singer/designer Traci Hines) and Prince Eric (modeled by Leo Camacho), into a modern hipster wedding couple!
See the incredible wedding and get the full list of vendors ahead!
