A great nautical theme is close to our hearts. We do hale from the Bay State after all but this photo shoot is out to prove that decor isn’t limited to just stripes and anchors. Instead this group of talents, including Hello Love Events, EightTreeStreet, Laura Hooper Calligraphy and Terri Baskin Photography whipped up bold pattern, elegant calligraphy and a good dose of pink to go along with that navy and white.

From Hello Love EventsAfter rebranding my business with a combination of my favorite colors – navy blue, coral, and gold, I knew I had to create an inspirational wedding styled shoot to complement it. I have always had a soft spot for nautical themes and have always wanted the opportunity to showcase my ideas of ways to bring my love for weddings together with a nautical inspiration, which is all the rave this year!

First, I had to find the perfect venue to complement my vision. When a fellow wedding professional recommended Harbour View events in Woodbridge, Virginia and I finally had a chance to tour the space, I was instantly sold. The warm weather with a gentle breeze, the docks full of lovely boats both small and large, the cozy marina surrounded by lush gardens. This shoot includes some amazing touches including a breathtaking navy sequin tablecloth from Candy Crush Shop, some seriously floral pretty from EightTreeStreet and nautical calligraphy by the infamously talented Laura Hooper Calligraphy. Our hair/makeup artist for the shoot – Enlightened Styles – really outdid herself with the models’ hairstyles. I requested some pretty braided styles and some sort of way to incorporate a nautical touch to the ladies. She created an insane nautical bow out of some simple navy ribbon that I had left over from the shoot. Are you kidding me?! Amazing. The bride’s dress? The bow? Crazy beautiful!
