Featured On: My Eastern Shore Wedding { Long Distance love, fine wines, and the chateau bu-de

Sharing the delightful news that our first event at Chateau Bu-De has been featured on My Eastern Shore Wedding. It was a lovely celebration in May overlooking the Bohemia River in quaint Chesapeake City, an absolute picturesque scene. After a stunning ceremony down by the river, guests shared an intimate dinner at the height of the property with sweeping views.

We foraged for local blooms, sourced the freshest purple lilac, and created a Spring color palette of purple, ivory, blush, beige, and earthy, wood tones. The bride thought of every detail and included special touches throughout the evening that made each moment unforgettable.

Wedding Equinox

Our first bridal bouquet of the year was for this modern, fairy-like bride we referred to as 'Laurel in London' who found us from across the pond by way of fate and miracles. Her stunning look was set off by the most gorgeous emerald earrings and ring. She asked for modern, earthy vibes and with no idea about her bridal look, we created this emerald green, mossy centerpiece for a sweet, intimate wedding ceremony and reception at the St. Franciscan Monastery in Washington, D.C.

Her bouquet is also jewel-toned with ruby and amethyst-hued anemones paired with lush greenery and a soft grey-green succulent to accent. The groom also wore a succulent boutonnière to complement her flowers ~ isn't that tidy?

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!
