Back in May, I spent a few weeks in Poland and while in Gdansk, I connected with a local wedding planner and floral designer, the talented Dorota Janicka-Kurlenda from Gdańska Pracownia Ślubów. Dorota and I hit it off immediately. We shared a vision for a styled photoshoot – a beachy, horseback, boho bridal session and Dorota wanted to incorporate a few different looks in terms of floral design. I was up for any adventure so I simply said to her, let’s make it happen! In just a few days, she rounded up an all-star team including makeup artist, Beata Fryz, a gorgeous bridal gown from Carmen’s Salon, and model/horsewoman, Zuzanna Kmiecik. We set our alarms for 0245 and met on a beach in Sopot (which is picturesque Baltic coastal town, by the way) and photographed these beauties at the 0400 sunrise. Check out our beachy sunrise session here.
After we left the beach, we headed to the horse academy, Akademia Jeździecka J.J. Darboven for part two of our styled session. This was such a rad property, combining the proprietor’s love of coffee and horses. So while the ladies were getting ready, I walked around and said hello to a few horses while sipping my cappuccino. I could definitely get used to this…
Her dress is so beautiful! What a great inspiration for a Baltic Coast Elopement, especially for brides-to-be who want to include their horse in their wedding portraits!
