Get the Look: Modern Nautical

I just loved the modern take on a nautical theme we shared earlier today and thought it would be fun to create a sweet Get the Look based of that shoot. I loved the whale details we included as well as that gorgeous lace dress (at a steal for just $130!) and a pretty rope belt in white + gold that would be a perfect touch for your dress or your bridesmaids. Hope you love this look as much as us!

Mint + Turquoise Nautical Wedding Inspiration

chalkboard anchor

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.

Modern Fall Nature Center Wedding: Molly + Zack

ampersand sign

Molly + Zack’s modern fall wedding was filled with a fun mix of rustic + geometric design elements and a pretty autumn color palette – layered neutrals with mustard + green accents. They were really able to capture the feeling of fall with fun details like white + green pumpkins scattered throughout the ceremony + reception areas, and wait until you see the super cute bridesmaid’s bouquets, created by Morning Sun. Each gal carried a different bunch of seasonal blooms + foliage – so perfect for a fall wedding! Here’s more from Molly about their wedding’s inspiration + design:

Our inspiration was the outdoor surroundings of our venue. We wanted the decor to be modern with soft accents of our natural color scheme. My mom helped with the majority of the décor because she and I are both really into design + art. I am a fine arts major, so creating stuff for the wedding was important to me. Zack + I met at a coffee shop and are coffee fanatics, so we added personal touches by incorporating coffee into the decor. I dyed coffee filters for the hanging garlands and we gave out coffee that Zack roasted as favors.

Big thanks to Jenny Haas for the beautiful photography and congrats to Molly + Zack!

The tent + the deck had hanging sculptures which were made of coffee filters that I dyed and strung with fishing line. I got three different sizes of filters and various shades of fabric dye to match our overall color scheme…

My advice for those planning now is to get as much done as you can early on. We didn't have to rush too much and it was a lot less stressful. Also, I picked a florist whose taste matched mine and I just let her do her thing. It turned out amazing.
