As always you are going to find uhh-amazing weddings like Gillian and William's nautical themed celebration. Filled with all things nautical,  touches of stripes, anchors, nautical stars, knots, shells, and even code flags.

They put a fun spin on escort cards, by letterpressing them with a rope design and making custom pins to display them upon entry to the reception tent. You can find out how to DIY this project (all it takes is pins, charms, and some glue), as well as a few others like adding stripes to your look, using rope as décor, and rubber stamping your favors so they're the perfect fit for any waterfront fete. See more of their story here.
