Since I am still frustrated with figuring out a ceremony location I thought I would focus today’s post on something more fun, the feel and look of the wedding.

Ben and I want our guests to feel like they are at a low key, classic east coast beach wedding. His style is very preppy and I like that look as well so I want the décor to be classic, preppy, and nautical without being gimmicky. Here are a couple pictures from my Pinterest account that help illustrate this:

1. I love the look of this all-white cake
2. I love this location and the groomsmen’s suits
3. We are thinking of putting rope around mason jars for some of the table flowers
4. This DIY board is made with canvas and glued on wooden letters then painted
5. I like the seersucker on this bouquet
6. My mom and I are thinking of making table runners like this

The Newport Beach Yacht Club (where we are likely going to have the reception) has a lot of nautical details so I want to keep the décor fairly simple and understated. Luckily I have been finding a lot of ideas from weddings online that have done this successfully. Thank you Pinterest for never leaving me longing for wedding inspiration!
