Nothing says “summer wedding” like a palette of coastal blues, colorful blooms, hand-dipped ice cream, and endless sailboat views. Fortunately for guests at Amy & Ben’s Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum wedding, that was exactly the scene! With both the bride and groom working as principals at schools in D.C., we wanted to incorporate some subtle nods to their careers in education—coming in the form of adorable white “clipboard” menus with the cutest little gold clips. We carried that theme into the escort display, as well, using wooden clipboards to create contrast with the white board, blue lettering and vibrant blooms. The maritime setting inspired the rest of the décor—layers of coastal blues, scalloped gold-rimmed chargers, a self-service beer boat, and a gorgeous sailcloth tent, to name a few details. The result was a relaxed and intimate celebration with perfect personalization and even more perfect weather (80 and sunny with a fabulous breeze—will we ever get that in July again?!).
