Willie Ripple Events was recently the event planner for a Summer Sailing Styled Shoot at the Lake House at Cherry Creek. With the peaceful sound of crashing waves, the stunning views, and naturally romantic atmosphere, beach weddings have always been extremely popular. Living in Colorado though, many couples assume they have to plan a destination wedding in order to have a beach wedding. This photo-shoot with it’s navy and white theme, tables decorated with sand and sea shells, and the beautiful ocean-like view shows Colorado couples that they can have the beach wedding they’ve always dreamed of but never though they could have in the Midwest.

Willie Ripple Events is honored to have had the Summer Sailing Styled Shoot featured in the following blogs; Borrowed and Blue, Beach Bride, and Beach and Pine. We also look forward to being featured on Lets Bee Together in January 2018. Follow the links and scroll down to see highlights from the styled shoot, photography by Linda Murri Photography.


The Lake House at Cherry Creek

The newly opened Lake House at Cherry Creek is Denver’s only beachfront venue and offers Colorado couples the opportunity to have the nautical wedding they dreamed of without the hassle of planning a destination wedding.


Nautical Themed Wedding Table Setting

This table setting, featuring calligraphy by Hadley Designs, has a navy and white pattern linen, copper cups, and a tiny sailboat at each seat that ties together the nautical theme. Rentals provided by Allwell Rents Co., Charming Chairs and Weather or Not and linen provided by Chair Covers and Linen.


Nautical Themed Wedding Flower Arrangement

An assortment of white and blue flowers with sea shells mixed in by The Fresh Flower Market serves as the perfect centerpiece for a beach wedding.


Nautical Themed Wedding Shrimp Dish Biscuits and Berries

This featured dish of olive oil poached shrimp with summer zucchini and carrot vinaigrette. All catering for the photo shoot was done by Biscuits and Berries.


Nautical Themed Wedding Cake

This cake done by Astonishing Cakes gives the illusion of being covered in distressed wood, white rope, and a ship’s wheel. The glittery pink linen it’s sitting on adds a pop of color in the otherwise navy and white theme while invoking the pink sand beaches of the Bahamas.


Beach Wedding Bride and Bridesmaid Sailboat
