Understated Organic Coastal Wedding Ideas

With a never-ending view, sandy flats, and unique sea wood shown only during low tide, this location proved itself to be a must for any bride and groom looking to focus solely on each other. The understated organic coastal wedding ideas start with a lightly gold flaked, hand brushed blue water color natural deckled paper suite with handwritten calligraphy along with the “Bride” and “Groom” agate slices created by Santina Amendola Design. A Soieblu gown in solid ivory with an off-the-shoulder style in chiffon flows beautiful in the breeze. As the groom goes with a more casual look in a white button up dress shirt with khaki dress pants. Layers of Lovely Floral Design & Décor incorporates treasures inspired by the coastal vibe. From large barnacles to area’s driftwood the organic elements provide a rustic texture and edge blending with the wispy floral such as nigella and cornflower. The table made from a rusty lobster trap was a reclaimed piece that works perfectly for the intimate setting on the sandy beach for two where the couple enjoys oyster shots as husband and wife. Unique elements like the place settings, rugs and linens tie into the comfortable setting that play against the rich textures and colors together creating those understated organic coastal wedding ideas that can be carried out into any scale.
