Today’s lakeside nautical wedding inspiration, is so airy and romantic! It has us dreaming of warm summer days.
Nautical style no longer means the preppy, blue and white stripes of the Hampton’s, or overused boating décor. Instead, as the water laps up on the sandy beach of Lake Tippecanoe, we are transported to a time of elegance, whimsy, and an era that left us with treasures to be found today in modern times.The couple, Hannah and Tommy, embodied the look of vintage glamour. Hannah’s simple A-line gown was embellished at the bodice with lace and crystal beading, providing the perfect hint of sparkle. Tommy’s look is classic; a white, button dress shirt styled with black suspenders and pants. The couple was ready to celebrate into the night with their guests beside the lake.Nautical meets vintage romance with a lace covered table scene on the sandy shore, transforming this beach into sophisticated glamour. Traditional coastal elements mixed with chic, mismatched china settings give them each new life and license to provide a new elegance and image to the term nautical. Accented with subtle waves and adorned with a gold anchor, the two-tiered fondant covered cake further accentuates the theme. Its simplicity can be appreciated juxtapose to the vintage elements styled on the table, such as the green kitchen scale and cake plates. Hand painted signage and calligraphy helped anchor the nautical nods. Watercolor place cards balanced the vintage guest-seating table. The signs placed on the couple’s chairs playfully showcased how nautical could used in a smart twist. Looking at these pictures, we hope you are able to close your eyes, feel the warmth of the sunshine, hear the cyclical call of the lake lapping on the beach, and be transported to the long days of summer where Midwest love blooms brightest. – Megan Renee Photography
