Last Spring, I had the ultimate privilege to stand next to my oldest childhood friend and watch her marry her best friend and soul-mate. Drawing inspiration from all things nautical, this DIY wedding was relaxed, perfectly executed, and entirely sentimental. Their wedding was the ultimate celebration of love, filled with close family and friends, incredible food, and non-stop dancing – all captured perfectly by Emily Delamater Photography. I am beyond honored to share Jess and Tom’s nautical inspired DIY wedding with y’all today!
The Couple: Jessica and Tom
The Wedding: Laudholm Farm at Wells Reserve, Wells, Maine
The Inspiration: Since Tom and I are from different cities – we knew that our wedding would include travel for at least some of our guests. Instead of asking half the party to travel – we asked everyone to! Tom and I got married in Wells, Maine close to Ogunquit where Tom’s parents have a beach house. The inspiration for the theme and decor was a combination of laid back New England and nautical.
The Couple Recommends: Honestly – we were so lucky! All of our vendors were super. Our guests raved about the food and that our band kept guests on their feet until the venue was literally kicking us out! I would HIGHLY recommend all of our vendors.
