Lauren & Dan only had a couple of requests when it came to their wedding … that it be by the water and that it be nautically-inspired. Little Black Book favorites, Elizabeth & Karrie, at Posh Paperie took their thoughts and ran with it!

Add Lauren’s talented mother and Merilee at Ever After Events … and … they ended up with an elegantly designed wedding celebration that was simply fantastic!

Lots and lots of pretty … but my favorite thing? Hand-painted lanterns! (I could totally do that!)

Another fun thing? Lauren’s sister (and a friend) created chandeliers out of wine and champagne glasses. Pretty cool!

Now THIS is a sensational getaway!!

Our thanks to Merilee at Ever After Events and Garrett Photography for sharing this lovely nautical wedding with us! Congratulations to Lauren & Dan and once again … hats off to the moms behind so many of our very special weddings!!
