Sea Glass Hues for an Outdoor Wedding on the Chesapeake Bay

A hot day in Mid-July seems a fitting time to share this sea glass inspired color palette from a recent wedding. We used light blue delphinium for a touch of whimsy in traditional bouquets and centerpieces with ivory roses, peonies, ranunculus, eucalyptus, dusty miller and queen anne's lace. It's fun to know that this chic, elegant evening was followed by a weekend of brunching, lawn games, family time on the beach, and cocktails served from a custom, mobile tiki bar! It was a perfect weekend on the Eastern Shore.

Wishing everyone many sun-filled, beach days of summer 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.
