Dreaming of a beach wedding? Today’s styled shoot from John Schnack Photography, Nicole George Event Planning & Design, Lauren Sharon Vintage Rentals, and Native Poppy has you covered. The team uses all of the beach’s natural offerings to create a ceremony and tablescape that’s utterly inspired, including a ceremony arch that we love so much, we wish we could move it right into our own homes!

From the event designer, Nicole George Event Planning & Design: I wanted to create an elegant coastal inspiration unlike typical beach styled shoots. We focused on an ethereal, modern, and clean design with raw textures, a natural color palette of cool blues and tans, and gold and brass details. It was important for us to show couples that you don’t need flowers to create a beautiful event and designing around your landscape is key. Instead, we used a lot of glass bottles, driftwood, and fishing ropes and nets to adorn our tabletop and ceremony. Sea-grass, textural lounge furniture, and draping linens softened the look. My favorite part was balancing the rich landscape with delicate, sea-themed details.

How stunning is this wood backdrop? The hanging globes and bowls wrapped in macrame add the perfect touch of whimsy for a beach wedding celebration.
