Nautical Lakeside Wedding Inspiration at Bewster Academy

seaside wedding ideas

Set on the shores of Lake Winnepesaukee at Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, this beautiful wedding inspiration is perfect for the preppy bride. Using a simple color palette of navy and white with polka dot accents, Mindy Rossignol of Private Weddings and Events created a nautical-theme that was carried through this lovely photo shoot from the invitations to the ring bearer attire to the dessert table.

As always, you can view more of the beautiful images Kate Preftakes Photography captured of this nautical lakeside wedding inspiration in the full gallery here.

The navy and white polka dots Sara Tejada of Inkprint Letterpress used on the amazing invitation suite and menus was mimicked on the fabric table runners and pillows used in for the tablescape. Harrington Flowers created beautiful centerpieces using white roses and hydrangeas that finished off the look.
