Amy and Vincent’s Nautical Nuptials

Amy and Vincent’s wedding was picture-perfect with nautical nuptials. The inspiration behind their big day? From the bride: “We suppose you could say our inspiration was simply us, our relationship, and our lives (if that makes sense). We did not have any super specific themes, focuses, or intents, on purpose, except for being by the water. The beach is our “happy place”, and it was important to us that our wedding be connected to that. One theme that did emerge involved the anchor. When choosing our invitations, we really wanted something very simple, and after reviewing so many options, this was the one we came back to.” 

Amy and Vincent’s nautical nuptials took place in Isle of Palms, South Carolina, at the Citadel Beach House. Both from New York City, most of their wedding was DIY. The bride’s mother lives in Charleston and helped with a lot of it! The DIY bouquets and centerpieces were a huge part of the décor. Sweetgrass baskets were scattered about, as was appropriate for the wedding destination and perfect for the Charleston chews laid out for guests. One of the most special pieces of the wedding was the surfboard. Amy’s mother had the piece custom-made with a centerpiece that can be rotated. The surfboard had dual purposes. It was brought inside after the ceremony as a guest book.
