Cape Cod Style Lime Green and Blue Nautical Wedding

Ahoy! There’s just something about a lime green and blue nautical wedding that instantly draws me in, especially when it’s done right! One of my dear college friends Michelle just got engaged at a lighthouse a few weeks ago and has set a date for July next year up in Tiburon, CA. I envision her wedding to be inspired by this one!!
I’ve been obsessed with this wedding ever since I had the opportunity to submit it to The Knot Southern California last year, and its currently on newsstands now! What I love most about this nautical Hampton and Cape Cod inspired wedding style style is how classic and not to overly done with the starfish, sand, and obvious sea inspired elements!
The wedding was held at the bride’s family vacation home on Balboa Island in Newport Beach, which they have owned for over a century, so much history there! With a dream team of Joyful Weddings and Events, JL Designs, Meg Perotti, and Sweet and Saucy Shop this wedding was exquisitely brought to life!!

Each bridesmaid carried a different green theme flower in a celery or lime tone. The maid of honor had a combination of the different florals

Ring bearers held a grapewood log accented with white peonies in lieu of a standard pillow

The cocktail hour was made up of wood lounge furniture and all white florals in glass footed vases, double tulips, ranunculas and sweet peas

The bride had just finished school to be a licensed sommelier so their favors were custom bottles of wine!
