A Classic Garden Wedding? Yes, please!

Take a breathtaking traditional setting like the Evergreen Museum And Library and add in a rich color palette of red and blues with just a touch of golden glitter and the results are insanely pretty.  Think lush blooms crafted by Scentsational Florals, the beauty stylings of JKW Beauty and a bride and groom who are the definition of sweet.  See it all captured by Natalie Franke in THE VAULT, lovelies.

From Natalie Franke… These two are the epitome of soulmates and their relationship, spanning over a decade, is truly one of the most genuinely inspiring pairings you can imagine!

Greer wore a gorgeous wedding gown and carried her grandmother’s earrings on her bouquet. They walked arm in arm around the museum counting down the minutes until the reverend would declare them husband and wife. Everything about this wedding was incredible! The venue is a historic Museum just north of Baltimore that overlooks exquisite gardens and hidden brick archways.

From the Bride… Being a designer who had helped many brides realize their own unique wedding visions, I approached our wedding day planning with lots of ideas for the look and feel that I wanted to create. We wanted a wedding that reflected us as a couple, traditional, yet fun, and definitely near a body of water. The Inn at Perry Cabin embodied the beauty and historical feel that we were hoping for. Andrew proposed to me with a beautiful sapphire and diamond ring and that, along with our venue choice, with its lovely water views, lead to our delft blue-inspired romantic theme.

At the time of our engagement we were stationed in Washington, DC so the proximity to the Inn, located in St. Michael’s, Maryland, was manageable during planning. That was important to us as I was deep into my MFA thesis during the process and yet I still wanted to design as many of the details as I could manage in order to personalize our special occasion. There were many hours spent in the weeks prior the big event making sure those welcome bags were perfectly put together and the escort card tassels were the correct shade of blue. I focused so much of my energy leading up to the wedding on those small details because, to me, they mattered. It seemed important that there be continuity of design throughout all of the weekend’s events. I custom designed our letterpress save the dates and wedding invitations. For our guests, these set the tone for the entire weekend. I also hand-designed all of the other welcome materials and paper goods, from escort and menu cards to welcome maps and bags of goodies. Needless to say, I was busy but the finished product was well worth the effort. I had so much fun watching everything come together and, in the end, it was just beautiful. Julie, my planner from Strawberry Milk Events, helped to harmonize our look through venue décor, tenting, linens and table arrangements. She also kept us on track the day of. Lauren and Rachel from Sweet Root Village designed those stunning floral arrangements and the greenery canopy over the dance floor. The exquisite results blew me away. Lastly, Katie Stoops Photography helped us capture all the special moments and details of the day in the most beautiful way possible.

One of my favorite memories from that day was surprising Andrew by walking down the aisle with my Dad to an electric violin version of a Dave Matthews song. Andrew loves Dave Matthews Band, and the surprise was of special significance for the two of us. Seeing the big grin on his face when he realized what song was playing as I walked towards him reminded us that this was a special moment between the two of us, even as it was being witness by all of our family and friends. Those friends and family being there meant so much to us as we have moved many times over the years due to our careers. Finding the right balance between entertaining and enjoying your guests and taking the time to appreciate the moment with your spouse is really important.

What I would say is… the day goes by so quickly and we made an effort to enjoy our “moments” together. You are throwing a really big party and you, as a couple, are the center of attention. We wanted to remember what the event was about… our love and future together. It is important to take time to remember throughout the day how, and why, we were celebrating our love.

A Wedding Held in the Home Built By The Bride and Her Mother

Aplenty. Take this culturally chic celebration planned by Anne Book Event Design. From the sweetest ceremony you’ve ever seen to the lovely lit reception, Judy Pak has got it all waiting for you in The Vault!

From Anne Book Event DesignThe 75 guest wedding took place at the waterfront home of the mother of the bride on Maryland’s Shore. They are a mother- daughter architect team and the mother designed the house. The entire wedding incorporated the bride’s Indian Heritage and the Groom’s Scottish heritage while embracing the local flavors and setting of The Eastern Shore.

There was a hurricane coming up the coast all week and the couple had to make quick decisions. They went from a sailcloth tent to frame tent with sides, installed heaters and a custom wooden wall to block the forecasted 30 MPH winds all 3 days before the wedding. In the end, the weather ended up being fine and everything turned out wonderfully.

Some of my favorite details were the individual cloches place cards that covered the amuse bouche, the driftwood structure that was designed and built by the couple for their ceremony, and the cocktail hour surrounding the modern pool and the custom invitation suite, and welcome gifts. Everything for this wedding was custom down to the hand dipped concrete floral containers to match the home.
