Coastal Palette at Castle Hill

June 6, 2019

The Coastal Palette at Castle Hill in Summer: Ocean Blues, Bleached Driftwood, Rocky Grey Coast, Puffy White Clouds, and All Things Growing Green

A.K.A. All the colors of nature

Nature’s Palette is the BEST palette. Everything is guaranteed to coordinate! I mean, this sailboat photo MATCHES the bride’s flowers! #almostliketheyplannedit

Bouquet by Sayles Livingston Design.


Blue sky, grey rocks, green hill … the gorgeous, natural, monochromatic colors of Castle Hill.



My favorites spot at Castle Hill is the wooded path that leads to the lighthouse. That dappled summer light is so dreamy, it never disappoints. Not to mention, in August it can be a welcome bit of shade.


Natural fabrics and bleached wood are a great complement.  The cutest couple at the wedding even coordinates!


You really can’t compete with the view from the ceremony site at Castle Hill, best to go in the direction of what’s already there!


Kathleen’s eyes match the flowers. Maybe that’s the inspiration Mark and Kathleen started with for their palette!

Amazing florals in the tent are also by Sayles Livingston.


Soft, natural; this room screams summer elegance!


This is one of the prettiest table settings I’ve seen. The pale blue and gold is lovely!


Love the pops of lavender!



Delicious cake … two ways. 🙂


Printed elements are often my favorite details at a wedding. Since you choose your invites in the beginning of the planning process, they often set the tone for the whole soiree! In this case, it’s in keeping with their coastal palette at Castle Hill.


Cake’s eye-view of the venue.


How crisp, cold and refreshing does this champagne look? That fabulous ocean air can really work up a thirst!



Late afternoon cocktail hour on the lawn at Castle Hill? Yes, please.


When your family matches your color-scheme. 🙂


When your friends match your color-scheme too! LOL



A twinkly ending, just like the stars coming out on a summer night!
