nautical inspired wedding fashion

Fashion: Sail Away With Me

A nautical wedding theme is nothing new, but with its renewed popularity, we partnered with some fabulous vendors and creative minds to put a modern spin on this American classic. Blues and whites combine with pops of fuchsia and shades of gold to make this one head-turning event. The stunning Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, California set the scene for our seaside destination wedding inspiration.

From the colors of the sea to the beautiful details, every part of this photo shoot gets it right. And who doesn’t love a little French Bulldog to sweeten the deal?

Going for a theme is always a fun idea, but when it’s a little cliché, that’s when it feels dated.
