Mint + Turquoise Nautical Wedding Inspiration

The idea for today’s super fun styled shoot, designed by Confetti & Co. and photographed by George Weiss III, was to create a fresh take on nautical by using it as inspiration for a rad, nautical-themed bridesmaid party! The team wanted to update the expected color palette, veering away from the traditional nautical navies + blues, and instead incorporating brighter, punchier shades of mint + turquoise. They were sure to infuse the setting with lots of great maritime textures – like wood, slate + rope. And how cute is their cheeky catch phrase “whale you be my bridesmaid”?! Just love it! This shoot is sure to inspire you lovelies who are thinking of throwing a party to ask your bridesmaids to be by your side for your big day!

The nautical-inspired cake, by Whipped Bakeshop, is so lovely! I’m crazy about the gold rope detailing + anchor topper.
