The gorgeous photos are from Marisa and Tim of Peterson Design & Photography. The couple had married the day before at Disneyland but wanted more photos that combined their two loves - Disney and Harry Potter. Their shoot took place at Victoria Beach in Laguna Beach and since they had a Tangled theme wedding this location was perfect. This beach features an old Victorian lighthouse type structure that was built in 1926 and contains a spiral staircase with access to the beach. Are you ready for lots of stunning photography inspiration?

The scene was set with an elegant beach picnic that combined books, vintage luggage (for the trip to Hogwarts of course!), macarons with quiddich goals, and potion bottles. Paper flowers were made from Harry Potter book pages and there was a laser cut golden snitch. The newlyweds even had their own wands from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and champagne exclusively from Walt Disney World. All the hand painted details were inspired by the ocean setting and the soft color palette of the day after session.

Under the Sea Wedding Inspiration : The Little Mermaid Gets Married

Today's styled shoot from Tab McCausland Photography is absolutely beautiful. Her idea behind the shoot is so fun - what would it be like if the Little Mermaid got married. And, that gorgeous brooch bouquet? The idea behind that was that the mermaid would have all her trinkets together in a bouquet instead of flowers so it could go, well, under the sea. I LOVE IT!
