Elegant Seaside Wedding Inspiration

Graced with soft waves of watercolor, driftwood detailing and an effortlessly elegant tablescape fit for any seaside soiree, this shoot designed and styled by Alex Meyer Events is what my wedding dreams are made of. Inspired by Walt Whitman’s quote “in you I wrap a thousand onward years” it embodies an endless love, wrapped in sooo much pretty. Get lost in all the lovely that Krista A. Jones snapped up here.

From Alex Meyer EventsThe inspiration for the shoot came from the Walt Whitman quote “in you I wrap a thousand onward years.” The quote is the essence of marriage! In you I wrap my whole future. The endlessness of the sea and the endless possibilities for a marriage paired so beautifully with the Whitman quote that I knew I wanted a shoot that had all three elements. Victoria from Design House of Moira created stunning art pieces of the quote for us to use throughout the shoot that ended up being one of my favorite parts.

The color palette was inspired by the softness of the sea so we used wood, white, green, and sea blues to complement the location. We used textures like the sheer runner, cotton rope, and driftwood details to bring dimension to a simpler palette. I really wanted the shoot to be an example of décor that is inspired by the sea without being overtly nautical. I wanted to use the “wrap” motif throughout the details, and the wonderful vendor team carried that theme throughout the cake, garlands, paper elements, glassware, rope detailing, and even the bride’s hair and makeup.

Everything was natural, textural, and romantic and embodied the quote so beautifully!

From The Bride & Groom…We did our best to make sure all the details of our wedding reflected us as a couple as well as our family history.

It was important for us to find a venue that could host all of our wedding activities since it was the first time our families would be meeting. Our friends and families rented out the adorable houses and stayed on property the entire weekend. We held our rehearsal dinner at the Smokehouse Restaurant Friday night then hosted a Welcome Party for out of town guests after the dinner. It was so special to us to have everyone all together in such an intimate setting.

The dessert table was one of my favorite parts of the wedding! It was a way for us to incorporate several different heritages. Steve’s mom and god mother made all the Greek pastries and Amy’s mom made the mini pecan pies (in honor of her southern roots). Steve’s Aunt, who was born and raised on Smith Island, made the Smith Island cakes (chocolate, coconut and pineapple).

Smith Island is a small island (current population= 364 people) at at the southern-most part of the Eastern Shore and is only accessible by Ferry. Steve always loved going to his Aunt & Uncle’s for any party because they’d always have a Smith Island cake (at least one). The cakes are very laborious. Each layer is baked individually and stacked one on-top of another to create 7 layers stuck together with deliciously rich icing. 7 layers is the “official” sign that it was made on Smith Island….it’s recent popularity has spurred many to bake 8-10 layers but the pros learned over the years that anything over 7 tends to topple over.

Our save the dates, invitations, menu cards, etc had the same design on each of them. Steve incorporated that design and customized the corn hole set for the wedding. The lawn games (Jenga and Ladder Golf) as well as the wedding sign came from Sean Pumphrey.

Classic Manor Wedding

Fridays with a dash of classic elegance are sort of my thing.  Because if ever there was a perfect start to the weekend it’s a stunning bride in Enzoani, a dapper groom in uniform and some of the most beautiful details you have ever seen.  Pair that amazing combo with a breathtaking backdrop like the Great Oak Manor and we have ourselves one fabulous gallery (thank you, Krista A. Jones).  Join me there for more.

And a sweeter than sweet film from Jamie Forzato… you’re welcome.

Manor

From Krista A. Jones… Becca and Ned met on a blind date their senior year of college at the University of Maryland. Although Ned was committed to commissioning into the army and Becca to teaching English in Austria for two years, they couldn’t help but start a relationship. After a two year cross-continental relationship, thousands of flight miles, hundred of emails, and a deployment, Becca relocated to El Paso, TX to join Ned.

From the beginning of their engagement, Ned and Becca envisioned a classic Maryland wedding on the water surrounded by friends and family. As they embarked on planning the wedding from Texas, Ned stumbled across a picturesque bed and breakfast in Chestertown, Mayland called Great Oak Manor. Great Oak Manor provided the perfect backdrop for a three day celebration including a Friday night roast of the bride and groom, outdoor Saturday reception and Sunday farewell brunch.
