Jessica and Justin Cape Cod Wedding Inspiration | Beachside Wedding and Clambake | Vermont Bride Magazine

In case the snow is starting to get to you, we thought it would be nice to share a sunny, warm celebration on the beach! With softly flowing beach grass and a quintessential East Coast stone staircase leading to a ceremony overlooking the Atlantic, we hope Jessica and Justin's wedding warms your heart as much as it did ours. Jessica and Justin's casual, chic celebration on Cape Cod featured a private Polish ceremony with their parents followed by a ceremony on the beach overlooking the ocean. What else would be fitting for an oceanside, Cape Cod wedding then a traditional Cape Cod Clambake dinner?

Alex & Doug | Cape Cod Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

Doug and Alex met during summer orientation at Chatham Bars Inn, where they were both working on their summer break from Hobart and William Smith Colleges. It was Chatham Bars Inn that brought them together so when they got engaged in October 2013 there was no need to venue shop! What Doug and Alex loved about April in Chatham is that their family and friends were able to truly enjoy the beauty of Chatham and Chatham Bars Inn without the hustle and bustle of the summer traffic and tourism. The views from the Main Inn are unbeatable, clear views of the ocean, seals on the sandbar and sunset! Alex wanted bright, cheery spring flowers, lots of tulips, cherry blossoms, garden roses and of course, peonies!

The bridal party consisted of all family; Alex's two sisters, her twin brother's fiancé, and her two sisters-in-law made up the bridal party. Doug’s brother was the best man and the groomsmen were Doug’s brother-in-law, two cousins, and Alex's twin brother. The champagne bridesmaid dresses and classic black tuxes were classic Cape Cod. Doug, an avid fisherman and a licensed boat captain spends most of his weekends fishing the waters surrounding Cape Cod and the islands, so they knew they had to go out on CBI’s boat, The Bartender, for some formal photos. Alex and Doug mingled with friends and family over Champagne & Cranberries and Dark & Stormy’s in the South Lounge, and then carry over to STARS for the reception where they literally danced the night away. It was the most perfect evening at their favorite place in the world which will forever hold a special place in their hearts.

Sarah & Michael’s wedding day brought together friends & family from all over the country. With Sarah having grown up in California, summering in the Cape, attending college in New York and then working in El Paso, TX, friends who knew each other only by name & stories for years finally met face to face. It was truly the celebration of two families coming together and everyone enjoyed the New England hospitality the Cape had to offer – clam chowder and all!

Meg & Ryan's Cape Cod Beach Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Meg and Ryan's seaside nuptials shined and sparkled like the glittering water off the coast of Cape Cod. Meg dreamed of a wedding fit for a mermaid, and she got it, with adirondack chairs, sea star cookies that doubled as favors and place cards, sea glass and seashell inspired decor, beach balls, and a gorgeous day at the beach! The blue and white color palette was the perfect compliment to the surrounding, sunshine filled setting. You can't get any more quintessential Cape Cod than sailboats drifting in the background, a towering display of shrimp, and classic wooden sunglasses. Their family even surprised them with their charming yellow lab joining in as the ring bearer!
