Behind the Design: Nautical-Inspired Beach Wedding

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

It’s smooth sailing for today’s “Behind the Design” and beach wedding inspiration. This seafaring board features a classic navy and white color scheme as well a Wedding Program with an anchor motif. Get your beach wedding ideas on with this salt of the earth look and nautical theme. Here’s graphic designer, Rachel, to tell us about Love’s Anchor, her new modern Design Suite.

“This design suite was inspired by a nautical summer wedding, so an anchor was a must! Maybe set on a beach, by the water or even inside an upscale club: a modern design for a modern couple. Bold stripes complement the simple anchor artwork and together make quite a statement. And, if you wanted to change up the palette, this design works really well with most colors. Go with a muted color and the entire look and feel will change completely!”

Cute, Colorful Beach Engagement Photos

Categories Real Weddings

Looking for unique engagement photo ideas for your beach sesh and save the date? One unique idea–is to bring your pet! Tara and Nick took adorable engagement photos with their pup at Philippe Park in Safety Harbor, Florida. Colorful attire against dramatic skies and scenery gave this sesh from Mari Sabra Photography a modern-day, Norman Rockwell look and feel. And while the dog is clearly adorable {and well behaved!}, he never takes away from keeping Tara and Nick center stage. Enjoy!

And in case you missed it, this post offers tips on having a dog friendly wedding.
