family matters

Merry Winter Solstice and seasons greetings on this festive night! May you delight in time spent with family and enjoy the season for feasting and fire light. We are reflecting on the year that has passed and rejoicing in these quiet, dark hours. But ready to embrace the coming light and warmth of Spring and Summer!

One of our last 2017 collaborations was with our neighbor Price Rentals and Events in our hometown of Chestertown. Their sweet family photo shoot with the lovely Annie Velenovsky makes our heart swell with happiness for all the family memories to come ~ how delightful to play a teeny part in one! We also highly recommend their tents and other services for your next party or event.


Wishing you and your family the best of the season. To many years of love and light ahead!

Natural + Nautical Great Oak Manor Wedding

For this October wedding on the stately grounds of Great Oak Manor, guests experienced an elegant evening on the Chesapeake Bay surrounded by glowing centerpieces and lots of candlelight.  Our perfectly polished bride and groom put a nautical twist on their clean, classic style.  Navy and white striped linens, graceful white calla lilies and a stunning monogram were just a few pretty details.  There is such warmth and goodness emanating from these beautiful images shot by The Blonde Photographer, it was an event that truly sparkled. 

We filled glass bowls with lush greenery accented by vibrant blue thistle to pick up on the nautical navy accents. Other glass vases overflowed with ivory hydrangea, roses, and locally grown dahlias.  Since callas are the bride's favorite flower, a statuesque arrangement was placed on the head table.  Our gracious bride requested that all flowers be donated to a nearby senior facility that was near and dear to her heart.  We obliged happily and brought many smiles to the residents upon delivery.
