General Inspiration

Modern Nautical Style

Love as unique as the stars.

Imagine a perfect afternoon, a sleek boat, and two menAndrew and Williamgetting married in modern nautical style. That’s the narrative behind Our Love is as Unique as the Stars, a same-sex wedding styled shoot by Lily & Roses Exquisite Events and other professionals from Ottawa and Montreal.

As the wedding planners note on their blog at lilyrosesevents.com, “Mixing a galactic theme with bold and warm colours, we created an intimate wedding set on this gorgeous yacht on a warm summer day. Love can bring you to places unknown and sometimes out of this world. And truly, love is love is love is love.”

Photographed onboard a yacht off the island of Montreal in Longueuil, Quebec, this captivating wedding story is chock-full of inspiration for all who are planning a summer wedding. The yacht and nautical setting were courtesy of Navark, a company with a private island and 10 boats available for events.

A beautifully set table, with florals by Kyoto Fleurs, stationery by Mademoiselle D, lovely blue candles, and blue-bottomed wine glasses showcase the possibilities for an intimate celebration right on the water.

Gorgeous wedding cakes and a slim tower of silver and chocolate-dipped donuts by Little Leah’s Kitchen grace a sweets table that is strikingly accessorized with flowers, leaves and globes.

From the temporary anchor tattoos by Ditte Pepper to the grooms’ polished good looks, courtesy of Gabbie McGuire, the stylish details from this day — expertly photographed by Brittany Lee — give you an idea of what you can do for your big summer day.
