A Colorful Seaside Wedding at The Carousel at Lighthouse Point Park by Justin & Mary Photography

Instead of sticking to a theme or color palette, Natalie and Ryan focused on creating a fun experience for their friends at a seaside venue in New Haven, Connecticut. They did just that with unexpected food options including a pickle bar and fire pit for s’mores-making — yum! To complement their playful venue and vibe, they went with bright colors and details like a paper flower bridal bouquet and graphic chevron patterned linens. See all the pretty photos by Justin & Mary Photography below!

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
