event inspiration {seaside serenity}

I have said it before, but there is really something so romantic and relaxing about ocean side events--the lapping of the waves on the shore to the sun beautifully sinking into the horizon. I love when events in this setting are casual and feature subdued shades of the surroundings--pale ocean blue, sandy browns and soft sunset inspired peaches.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

So pretty, I was just at a wedding that used similar, seashell-esq tones. All of the bridesmaids wore different colored and textured dresses, although all in creamy pastels, it was definitely romantic

i definetly like the muted beaches better than the tropical ones. My favorites are oregon beaches in the fall. Its just cold and cozy and beautiful.
