Rustic, romantic touches complemented the nautical décor at one couple's summer nuptials.

The yacht club became the inspiration behind the couple's wedding. "Seawanhaka has classic beauty that transcends time and space," the bride says. "We wanted to blow our guests away with this location." Because the yacht club already "screamed nautical," Kristin says, the couple used "natural elements infused with rustic, romantic touches" to enhance the venue and set the tone for the event.

Beneath a Sperry tent, dozens of hanging lanterns illuminated rustic decor. Mason jars, medicine bottles, vintage vases and aged birch wood filled table tops covered in flax linen runners.
