If there’s one storyline that rings true for a coastal wedding, it’s the legacy of ‘home’ paired with a never-ending love for seafood! Today’s Cape Cod wedding inspiration is sure to satisfy any seaside appetite…with a big topping of luxury.
For this particular editorial, we wanted to showcase both coastal living and the bounty that exists right on the shoreline. Liesl Claire Photography shares: As a team, we kept the scale of the shoot ‘micro,’ to reflect the times and how people are able to celebrate safely at home, while keeping things creative, beautiful + luxurious. We found inspiration in the architecture of the covered porch, and the shingled charm of the back patio to anchor the intimate moments of this gathering.
Covid-19 forced many couples to reimagine their home as a wedding venue. Surprisingly, at home weddings are all the rage now! They can be intimate, more meaningful and, as seen in today’s Cape Cod wedding inspiration, luxurious as hell! With planning, design + styling by Daylynn Designs, this editorial has all the romance you’d want from the Atlantic shores. It’s shucking adorable!
Cape Cod Wedding by the Sea
With a luxe focus on the florals, Soul Flora flowers transformed both the ceremony + reception space. As seen in this inspo, beautiful, fresh flowers are never far away. A massive, asymmetrical arch sets the focal point of the ceremony, while a floral installation of foraged greenery floats above the intimate reception table.
Coastal babes are fashionable babes, too! Our bride rocks two stunning looks from Boston-based bridal shop, Lelite Bridal. As can be seen, she’s an Atlantic siren in an Ines Di Santo gown – complete with a billowing skirt + detachable sleeves. The movement of the gown is beautiful in the breeze. It creates a lovely stir with the backdrop of the sands.
It just wouldn’t be a Cape Cod wedding without a raw bar! With this in mind, fresh, local-caught oysters and littleneck clams are on display at a custom raw bar. There’s nothing like the freshest seafood being served to make your guests feel truly special.
Like we said, shucking adorable.
Intimate Seaside Reception with a Touch of Luxe
In essence, it’s the most magical intimate wedding table setting. Luxury truly meets Cape Cod wedding inspiration here with refined design elements from the glassware, lighting, chairs + linens. Tabletop rentals from Daylynn Designs, and furniture from True North Rentals.
Cue the late night looks! This bride stuns in a Marchesa Notte off-the-shoulder gown. Organza petals speak to our hearts. What better accents a fashion-forward bride than a classic black suit? Our groom is in suiting from 9 Tailors.
Certainly, lots of love, plenty of sentimentality, and gorgeous home-based details can be woven throughout a seaside wedding like this!
