Driftwood and Sea Glass
Love was overflowing at this beautiful Connecticut wedding. Guests were in tears the moment the beautiful bride stepped down the aisle.
The couple took inspiration from the seaside town of Mystic where the wedding took place. Instead of a literal nautical interpretation of the theme, the couple opted for a muted storm-at-sea look, which paired seamlessly with their venue.
The ceremony took place on the rolling hills of the lovely Inn at Mystic, overlooking a river while cranes flew overhead. A beautiful archway acted as the backdrop to an emotional and joyful vow exchange.
Sea glass, sailors knots, and driftwood decorated the tables, along with big pots of phalaenopsis orchids, thistles, and air plants. Starfish held escort cards to lead guests to their tables, and guests could sign an oar that now hangs in the couple's home.
"Working with Cat was a breath of fresh air! As someone who doesn't always have an "eye" for things, Cat came to the rescue with a thoughtful and creative approach to my vision for our wedding.
Cat helped us take nautical to a whole new level by invoking stormy sea colors, mussel shell colors, and shades of blues, greys, light greens, and sand colors that would give the illusion of the ocean. We found sea glass glass spray to help give bottles a more weathered look, and used drift wood to help keep the theme more natural and earthy.
Cat worked closely with me on choosing stationary that matched the new theme, and advised me on wording, color choices, fonts, and details I would never have even thought of! She helped me create a Pinterest vision board, and that was critical to help explain my vision of flowers, candles, and overall vision to the florist and venue manager.
The day was absolutely beautiful and I can't thank Cat enough for helping bring the best of our ocean theme to life, and providing advice on wedding etiquette and recommendations for a smooth, stress free wedding day!" - Alex, the Bride
