Kirsten and Patrick's Chatham wedding was a Cape Cod affair right on the water. At such an elegant harbor event, the decor was equally sophisticated. Rather than traditional nautical details with anchors and a navy-centric color palette, this wedding was delightfully light and airy. They chose a neutral palette and filled both their ceremony and reception with lively white flowers and greenery, such as air plants and eucalyptus. For their centerpieces, they also wove driftwood and succulents into the charming tablescapes. Instead of paper wedding programs, the couple opted to greet their friends and family with a sweet chalkboard sign they could read on the way to their seats.

Following the beachfront ceremony, they provided their guests glassware as favors with the corresponding escort cards attached to straws. The delicious wedding cake was topped with succulents and hydrangea. And, of course, the venue was absolutely gorgeous on the bright, sunny day.
