Marblehead, Ohio Wedding with Navy, Nautical Theme

We’ve been spending a lot of time on Lake Erie this year. We’re quickly gaining a love for the laid-back island life, the timeless class of nautical everything, the breathtaking sunsets and the simple fact that wine is always everywhere you go. Whether it’s an engagement session off of the shore of Sheldon Marsh in Sandusky, the adorable downtown Marblehead, or hanging out on a boat in Michigan, it’s clear that we have quite an amazing oasis right in our own backyard.

For the last two weekends, we’ve found ourselves living the Great Lakes dream yet again. A mid-September wedding that would normally be in the 70’s had us feeling like we were actually smack dab in the middle of summer. The skies were clear and just as gorgeous blue as the water. It felt as though everyone who lived in the area and owned a boat was taking one more relaxing trip around the lake. The views from the reception were absolutely breathtaking and picture perfect.

But, of course, Amanda & Logan already knew that. This is exactly what they had planned for and this is why they chose the Marblehead area. Not to mention the perfect placement of a fun little winery right on the way from the ceremony at at St. Joseph Catholic Church to the reception at St. Mary's Byzantine Catholic Church Hall.

With a little help from the boats on Lake Erie, the nautical theme was just perfect. From the sailboat decor where the girls were getting ready to the anchor and fishnet details on the tables at the reception, everything fit together. We can’t forget the waves crashing up onto the rocks by Marblehead Lighthouse.

We had a blast celebrating with Amanda & Logan’s wonderful families and friends. We couldn’t have asked for a better way to say goodbye to summer and hello to fall!

It was a pleasure working with a talented team of wedding vendors in the Marblehead area. Special shoutout to Erinn from Simply Yours, for the phenomenal decor at the reception!
