Maria + Dave's Wedding

We have a treat for you this chilly November day—a breath of fresh (and warm) air in the form of a Wedding Wednesday. Photographed by the fabulous Heather Cook Elliott, Maria and Dave's lakeside wedding is equal parts preppy and pretty, with a dash of well-executed DIY.

Champagne, navy and splashes of pink all nodded to a nautical theme without the kitsch, and the invitation suite set the stage for the wedding's clean lines and classic design. Maria doubled as a beautiful bride and the designer of her own invitations, programs and placecards. (Our favorite detail on the invitation suite is the map sketch below.) She wore a slim fitting lace gown from our Allure Bridals collection and was absolutely breathtaking—especially with her loose curls and vintage jewelry. All in all, this charming lake country wedding is a perfect example of why we love a summer wedding.
