Nautical Wedding Ideas

Today we’re officially in love with the water. Our next feature showcases a ton of nautical wedding ideas from Libelle Photography for your nautical engagement and your wedding.

Inspired by the 40’s Milledgeville, GA located right on lake Sinclair. Inspiration for this shoot came obviously from the 40’s especially by Alfred Eisenstaedt’s famous photograph of a sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square on Aug. 14, 1945. The Libelle Girls just love the young playful passion in this photograph and of course the nautical and 40’s clothing. You can see the entire shoot by clicking here.

The first part shows the couple meeting at a casual fun summer brunch on the lake. The blue and red décor with many seashells, anchors, and little paper boats is a great inspiration for a wedding theme, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or engagement party. Most of the items are hand crafted and really easy DIY projects. Items that were used are: lots of spray paint, corals and anchors, rope, sand, shells, and many red and blue hand folded paper boats for the red velvet cake and cupcakes. Also the red napkins were folded as boats. The mini bottles filled with sand from the event’s location were the favors, and the menu also matched the decoration.

We have to say that the hanging wheel is a brilliant decor addition to any nautical themed event. Way cute … right? See the entire shoot by clicking here.
