{Coastal Living}: A Palette of Blue, Navy Blue & Powder Blue

{Blue, Navy Blue & Powder Blue}

I don't know about anyone else, but I would really love a beach in my life right about now! If you are planning a beach wedding this year then you should check out this lovely trio. A palette of navy blue, blue and light blue was the choice of bride-to-be Heather and her fiance. It's fun and uplifting and definitely the definition of casual elegance. For Heather's wedding, she told me that the ceremony and reception would take place at her parents beach front property on Rosemary beach in Florida. I had the opportunity to spend some there last year and so I absolutely was able to invision just the look for her! {continued...}

Details We Love
Beach House Reception

In my design, I incorporated lovely floral sundresses for the ladies. Fun sandles & blue bracelets were worn by bridesmaids to incorporate that beachy casual vibe she was going for. The groomsmen wore navy blue jackets and khakis which made for a casual yet preppy look. For centerpieces, instead of using flowers..I opted to design a centerpiece with candles, seashells and river rock. This proved to be both beautiful and budget friendly. A seashell motif was incorporated on save the dates and invitations which really was fitting for this beachy elegant affair. I chose to give Heather a few 2 tier wedding cakes, instead of just one. The cakes were both charming and tasty! Guests went home with small beach towels that had the couples names embroidered onto them and a sincere thank you from the bride & groom.

Blue is so classically beautiful. And having a beach attached doesn't hurt!
