{Nautical Nuptials}: A Palette of Navy Blue, Slate Blue + White

June 24, 2011

{Navy Blue, Slate Blue + White}

Since Summer is officially upon us, I'm officially loving all things nautical. I think I've mentioned it before, but I was this close to having a nautical wedding. My desire for having a Fall wedding in the mountains ultimately won out in the end, but if I were allowed to plan two weddings the second one would definitely have be nautical. A friend of mine recently came to me and told me all about the upcoming wedding that she's planning on the East Coast and I immediately started rambling about navy blue, the idea of a send off by sea...oh, and lobsters! Turns out she wants a blue wedding, so I put together the board below. Notice that I did work in a lobster...I clearly have issues. I mean, what's not to love about them? I absolutely love this look. It has such a calming feel to it. {continued...}

Details We Love
Newlyweds in Love + Lighthouse Ceremony
So tell me, are you liking this nautical look as much as I am? I just love the idea of having a ceremony right on the beach, right near a lighthouse. There is something so meaningful about this idea to me. Maybe it's because lighthouses help you find your way. And perhaps I like the idea of love always being there to help you find your way. Okay, that was corny. But you get the idea right? Anyone planning a nautical wedding? I just might have to plan my very own nautical summer party during the week I go to the beach this summer. Perhaps that will satisfy my nautical fix?

PS. Have I ever mentioned that you can actually click on the color swatches above and navigate the site by color? Yep, you don't actually have to go to the 'Colors' section to do a search. If you see a color you like in a post, simply click on the color to see all of the other palettes I've done that include that color!

LOVE this - I am such a sucker for everything nautical and you just can't beat navy and white. You've managed to make it look soft and romantic though, and I love the idea of a lighthouse as a meaningful motif, which I hadn't considered before.
