A nautical and preppy wedding in the heart of Atlanta? Why not? A team of talented and passionate Atlanta-area wedding vendors gathered at Atlanta restaurant and event venue, The Optimist, a beloved seafood restaurant and oyster bar with a little-known event room and “buyout” restaurant policy! Coordinated by Pretty Swell Parties, the wedding inspiration featured a bold palette of blue, orange, yellow and coral details, perfect for summertime nuptials. Jack and Gretel created a custom blue invitation suite featuring a bamboo lattice envelope liner. Boukates, a florist in Atlanta, created punchy bouquets featuring garden roses, scabiosa, ranunculus and warm weather favorite Coral Charm peonies. The bride sported a classic gown from Adore Bridal Boutique and an updo expertly styled by Andrea Carter Artistry while the groom sported a sharp nautical-inspired ensemble finished with a pretty polka dot bowtie from Mrs. Bow Tie. Lush Cakery created a modern wedding confection boasting three layers and conversation-starting geometric shape embellishments. J.Ashley Photography captured every preppy detail of the day.
