beachside and grey skies

Beach weddings with glamorous, monochromatic color palettes are absolute perfection. Just because summer is officially over does not mean that you can’t have a flawless beach wedding! Gray is an effortlessly elegant palette for nuptials along a rocky shoreline.

Grey beach wedding inspiration board

The overall color palette of this beach wedding inspiration board is definitely gray, but the little bits of blue give it a beautiful reference to the ocean. The oyster shell cake topper is definitely a favorite detail of mine – it’s so chic, unique, and naturally gorgeous!
