Nautical Romance, The Annisquam Yacht Club

Liz & Scott, October 12, 2014, The Annisquam Yacht Club, Annisquam 

Liz and Scott were married on the back deck of the Annisquam Yacht Club on an absolutely gorgeous October evening.  One thing that I love so much about autumn weddings is that the sun starts to set a little earlier in the afternoon, making a sunset ceremony truly possible!  You can see in their photos that the light was really magical for these two.  You really couldn’t ask for a more beautiful New England backdrop than the Annisquam harbor.  There are many old wooden sailboats moored here, which look especially amazing on a fall afternoon like Liz and Scott’s wedding day.

The bridesmaids wore different styles of light chiffon dresses in a dusky light blue color.  The yellows and whites that we chose for the bouquets really popped against the dresses!  Liz didn’t want a typical “fall” color palette for her wedding and I think the outcome was really special. We used monochromatic yellow roses, dusty miller, white roses and white hydrangea in the bouquets.  I loved this combination because it was simple and sweet, but with tons of texture and visual interest.  I hand tied the handles of the bouquets in burlap and lace, which really added to the layers of texture and made the colorful, yellow flowers stand out.

After the ceremony, all the girls placed their bouquets in clear glass vases on their dining tables.  This is an excellent way to repurpose flowers and continue to enjoy the bouquets throughout the evening.  Liz and Scott created many other Nautical details for the reception, which added to the decor.  I love when brides and grooms get very involved in the decor aspect of their wedding!

The Annisquam Yacht club is such a great venue, there is so much character and scenery in the venue and it’s surroundings, it just needs a little bit of dressing up, it doesn’t need to be completely transformed in order to make it feel special.  The deck overlooking the water, where Liz and Scott had their ceremony, can also be use for cocktails, and even dancing!

I think their photos by Flavio D Photography really capture the details so beautifully!
