Romantic Maryland Wedding at Springfield Manor Winery and Distillery

It’s true that this wedding is gorgeous. The flowers, the setting, the couple – it really doesn’t get prettier. But you know what I love the most? The way he looks at her. And the way she looks at him. That, my lovelies, is my favorite detail of all. Thankfully Elizabeth Fogarty Photography captured a plethora of picture perfect moments, and they are all waiting for you right here.

From Elizabeth Fogarty PhotographyThis is actually Springfield Manor Winery and Distillery’s first year in business and this venue could not be more perfect for Eric and Esther’s June wedding. The ceremony was held outdoors, with a beautiful mountain backdrop. Being a Maryland June wedding, everyone was expecting a hot and humid day, but boy were they wrong! It was a breezy day and right after the procession, clouds rolled in and kept everyone cool.

With blush and mint tones, the details came together beautifully. The reception room had lots of windows, which allowed for natural light to softly fill the space. The centerpieces were a work of art and just lit up the room with their bright colors.

The best part of the wedding was the way Eric and Esther did not cling to tradition but allowed their wedding to reflect them as a couple. They chose to have a first look and to have that sweet time to themselves. They also chose to not have a first dance, which is totally fine. Couples need to let go of age old traditions and really have their wedding day be about what they truly love and what makes them comfortable.

On a side note, Eric is probably my favorite groom to photograph. I don’t have to ask him to hold her hand or look at her, because is always loving on her. It is the sweetest thing to see!

From Caitlin… Hello beautiful brides, Caitlin here from Glitter Guide! It’s been a little while since I shared a Blogger Bride post because I’ve been working like crazy on all of the last minute details for our wedding! We’re almost a month away and I’m definitely feeling the pressure!

I was undecided about taking engagement photos for the longest time, but after speaking with our incredible photographer, Abby Jiu I knew we had to do them! I’m pretty comfortable in front of the camera, (being a style blogger and all) but my fiance Austin isn’t a fan. Abby encouraged us to use this practice round in front of the lens to get comfortable with each other and her. I’m so glad we did it — and now we have these stunning images that include our dog, Sullivan who won’t be at the wedding!

After coming up with several different ideas for our shoot – and a few re-schedules due to weather we ended up shooting them at a hidden park right around the corner from our house! The light was perfect and the scenery really spoke for it’s self. My friend Anne from Charleston Stems happened to be in town that day and quickly put together this dreamy bouquet that fit the color palette perfectly!

Again, if you’re on the fence about doing engagement photos – I highly suggest it. I never thought I would and now we have beautiful, professional photos not in our wedding attire that we can cherish forever.

Formal and Fun Ballroom Wedding at Westin Annapolis

This beauty of a wedding is proof that just because you have a formal wedding, doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. With the help of Little Bit Heart, this gorgeous couple beautifully united both tradition and their own personal style throughout their big day, making these images from Maria Vicencio Photography not only gorgeous but meaningful.

From Little Bit HeartWe are so excited about sharing this submission with you! We have a special connection to this wedding- the bride, Maria, is in the wedding industry herself (as an amazingly talented makeup artist with Amie Decker Beauty ) and happens to be Elizabeth’s sister (and Jenna’s cousin). Also, we were so happy to have the opportunity to STYLE the wedding as well as do all of the papergoods. It was a dream come true for us to see all of these details come together- from the invitations to the ribbon wall to the awesome dessert display.

Maria and Nick found that a ballroom wedding was the best way to accommodate their large guestlist, although that’s not the venue they originally had envisioned. With that in mind, we worked to bring in special touches to make the hotel ballroom feel unique and custom for the couple. We loved working with their lovely color palette of neutrals and pinks to design this gorgeous day! The two words Maria kept using to describe what they wanted for their wedding day were “formal and fun,” and we think the day ended up matching those words perfectly.

The groom’s French heritage inspired some of our favorite details: the letterpress invitation was duplexed to include French and English versions of the wording, and the dessert bar included, along with Italian cookies from the bride’s aunt’s bakery, French macarons from Nick’s favorite local patisserie. In addition to the THREE amazing wedding cakes, 4 Sweet Layers (another of the bride’s sisters!) also made a fantastic groom’s cake: a croissant!

We might be biased, but we think the best introduction to a wedding day is the invitation, and theirs definitely said “formal and fun”: the letterpressed invitation and inserts were held together with a ribbon and wax seal bellyband. The whole set went into a box filled with (one of our favorite details!) shredded kraft paper and handcut tissue paper confetti. For the wedding day papergoods, we paired hearts and French phrases (like “l’amour parfait” on the sweet bags) with the formal script from the invitation. We also incorporated whimsical details in fun places. The escort cards featured a custom punched heart pennies and a scratch off to reveal your table number. We had so much fun putting together the dessert and candy displays, with balloon and chalkboard backdrops- we also got to use the handcut tissue paper and metallic gold confetti again here, which added an awesome touch to the tables.

It’s so so important to have vendors that you love capture all of the details on your wedding day, and Maria and Nick’s team was fantastic. Maria Vicencio documented their love story beautifully, with photos that give us the chills, while Lovesick Inc got it all on video in a way that makes us cry every time we watch it.
