Nautical Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

We always love a good bit of nautical inspiration, and all the more when it comes from the incredible Alea Lovely! Alea crafted this beautiful elopement shoot inspired by sea-faring details, featuring on gorgeous boat courtesy of Victorian Gardens, who also provided the floral arrangements.

From the photographer, Alea: How great would it be to get your closest friends and family together for a private romantic nautical elopement in a intimate location and sail off for a night on the water. We used the traditional navy and white to capture the nautical feel but instead of red softened it up with blushes and soft pink pastels to make it a more elegant affair.

With nautical details of rope, paddles, wood and stripes positioned seamlessly with elegant glassware, candles and lanterns we put together a perfect intimate affair for the creative bride to do something simple but gorgeous. We didn’t want to over do it with too many details to take away from the lovely boat that accented the end of the dock where are simple ceremony could take place. Hope you’re inspired!
