Real Wedding - Michelle and Donny in Cape Cod, Massachusetts

We love nautical themed weddings, so when we saw Michelle and Donny’s themed day we had to share it. The theme began with the invitations that featured starfish and knots. The couple even used the quote ‘Friends forever we will be, whether walking on the beach or sailing on the sea’ (we love it!)

The nautical theme was also incorporated into the ceremony as Michelle explained; “The ceremony featured navy blue lobster buoys lining the aisle, and the arbor at the end of the aisle was decorated with fishing net and starfish. Carrying the theme through, we had a custom lobster trap for cards on the guest sign in table, and rather than a guest book, we will asked to sign boat oars.”

“In lieu of traditional wedding favors, we made a donation to the Joslin Diabetes Center - in memory of Michelle's grandmother, Judy. She passed away a few years ago. However, it was even more meaningful because many guests of the wedding have been touched by Diabetes in some way.”

Even the couple’s cake had a hint of nautical to it, as did the bridesmaids and groomsmen’s gifts. These high school sweethearts have done a lot of travelling in the nine years together, so Michelle and Donny decided to incorporate this in their day by naming their tables after places they had visit.  “The wedding was about the little details,” Michelle says, “and the things that make it representative of us.”
