There are so many things that come to mind with the words “nautical” and “DIY”, but none truly live up to them like today’s lovefest. Tara and Chris are ultimate sweethearts and everything about their wedding details was stunning! Complete with boy band dances, delicious cake, and touches of anchors and starfish elements, this wedding stands out as one great inspiration for those couples who love the beach and every detail about it! Some of the standout details were her wedding rings from the Blue Nile, her beaded sandals from Etsy Shop Fancy Feets, an infinity bracelet that Chris gave her and the most memorable item was the charm she had custom made from Designs by Chastity on Etsy. Her beautiful bouquet was from Pocket Full of Posies which is one of the most amazing florists in their area! Chris’ wedding ring came from Kay Jewelers, his suit from Men’s Warehouse, and his custom-made cufflinks from Breadwinners on Etsy. Since they were having a nautical beach wedding, they wanted to incorporate starfish, anchors, and seashells as much as possible. They did such an amazing job pulling together this theme. It continued through the ceremony to the reception. The place cards, the centerpieces, even their themed cake from Bake Works! I could babble all day long about all those cute, little details but I’ll let these gorgeous photos by Bokeh Love Photography do the talking. Enjoy!

I highly recommend that your wedding be true to who you are. Let the wind blow in your hair, get married on a beach, have a themed cake, go ahead and have fun and dance the night away, and do not forget to indulge in a snack at the end of the night! It’s your party, and you should definitely select key items that you want, and make it your own. Whether it’s doing everything DIY, or buying custom items through Etsy, or making sure there are things present that just speak to you and your fiance. Just don’t forget to have fun and enjoy! ~Lauren Adams/Photographer
