Bohemian Nautical Wedding Inspiration

nautical beach wedding inspiration

This whole concept for this lovely beach shoot started when Rachel from Lace and Likes moved back to California from Oregon. She just couldn’t get enough of the beach and was inspired to create some gorgeous inspiration for other brides who love the beach – with a touch of Bohemian details! Imagining that the bride + groom were shipwrecked, they then create a wedding ceremony on their own private island. So dreamy! Rope was Rachel’s biggest material inspiration and she used it as much as possible in the design. Driftwood, bangles, flowy fabrics, amber glass, long mermaid hair, boots, feathers and twine all inspired Rachel to create today’s inspiration with a “shipwrecked, nautical, boho” vibe. Big thanks to Swoon by Katie for the photos!
