Navy & Red Nautical Wedding

When I designed my “Heads Over Heels” wedding stationary collection, I wasn’t thinking “Nautical”; but in hindsight, I think my Navy Blue color version is well-suited for a Nautical wedding theme. The pin striping reminds me of seersucker suiting and the script font and graphic elements have curves that are reminiscent of moving water. My inspiration for this collage was a bayside preppy wedding in navy & red, inspired by this quote from Brides Magazine, “Getting married by the sea? Celebrate in nautical style with a patriotic palette and lots of preppy accents.”

Nautical Wedding

Whether you’re saying “I do” in New England or the West Indies, this nautical wedding collage can provide inspiration to any seafaring couple. When I decided to do some hand-painting for this wedding stationary, it made perfect sense to paint water with watercolors. I tried to capture the gentle rolling of ocean waters.

Blue Ombre Beach Wedding

I love how popular ombré (a gradual change from one color or shade into the next) has become, and I especially love it for use in wedding design. It add so much dimension to your chosen color palette. Why use just one blue when you can use every shade in the Caribbean Sea. Floating in the ocean is my favorite place to be, so I designed this beach wedding stationary to feel like it’s underwater —  like you’re looking up at the surface seeing the light shine through.

Aqua & Navy Blue Beach Wedding

Here’s another Blue Destination Wedding / Beach Wedding Inspiration Collage for my “Rolling Waves” Wedding Stationary. I found too many great photos not to share them all, so here’s the 2nd Blue Beach Wedding Collage (which also has some peach accents). Click here to view the other beach wedding collage. My favorite pic in this group is the underwater “Trash the Dress” kiss pic, so romantic!
