Love sets sail with nautical wedding ideas in this serene styled shoot at Lake Champlain in Vermont. Escape to a bright, sunny day with the crisp palette of navy, blue, and lemon yellow at The Aurora House planned and designed by VT Enchanted Events and photographer Paul Reynolds. It's a preppy take on chevron stripes, anchors and fresh florals by Creative Muse Floral Design. Spend a little extra time noticing the special touches like the messages in a bottle at each place setting which add a touch of whimsical detailing.

Clean Lines and Simple Patterns

With the word "classic" in mind this team of vendors capitalized on clean lines and simple patterns with just the right touch of whimsical detailing bringing this shoot to life. A vintage inspired swimsuit was the perfect addition to the playful side of the shoot captured along side the docked seaplane that also served as a quick ride to the marina for the couple making more magical moments. The timeless lines of the Watters' Wtoo gown from Fiori Bridal Boutique boasted an asymmetrical neckline for a casual coastal look, while the groom sported a bow tie paired with a button down shirt dotted with tiny anchors for an unexpected nautical infusion into the fashion styling.

Anchors Away
