An Inspiration Shoot Where Traditional Charm Meets Modern Style

A wedding like this inspiration shoot from Cristina Calvert Signature Weddings & Celebrations and Stacy Bauer Photography could count as your something old and something new. How? Let your something old be Hammond- Harwood House, the gorgeous setting for this inspiration shoot, which dates back to colonial America. And for your something new, make jaws drop in the modern yet timeless Carol Hannah dress and Susie Saltzman Fine Jewelry ring. See all the pretty details in The Vault!


From Stacy Bauer PhotographyOur design inspiration came from the secret garden-like feeling of the garden at the Hammond-Harwood House in Annapolis, Maryland. This venue is one of the premier colonial homes in America and dates back to 1774. The exquisite architecture found both inside and outside, provided a stunning backdrop to the intimate garden ceremony. Gorgeous cascading florals by Steelcut Flower Company were adorned to accent the doorframe that overlooked the romantic garden. A soft and romantic tablescape was set with rentals from Select Event Group and china from Crate and Barrel. Vintage silver flatware from the personal collection of the Hammond-Harwood house was used and gave nod to the history of the house. Small floral wreathes around the calligraphed place cards by Surcee Calligraphy were set and gave a feminine touch to the place setting.

The bride wore a Carol Hannah dress, veil and belt for the wedding ceremony and then later slipped into a shorter, sexier sheath for her getaway on the Vespa. Beautiful rings by Susie Saltzman were used and custom suiting and accessories by Capital Custom Clothiers outfitted the groom. The bride and groom celebrated an intimate ceremony and reception in the quaint downtown garden and then slipped away on the blue Vespa as husband and wife.

From the Bride… I remember so many special moments from our wedding day…waking up early and taking a walk with my parents, reading a letter from my dear (at that point) fiance, laughing with all my bridesmaids while we prepped, the butterflies in my stomach before walking down the aisle, the disbelief that we had actually pulled this off, seeing every person I care about in this world there to support Jon and I on that day, and, above all, overwhelming feelings of love and humility that all these people would gather to be there with Jon and I. What a celebration of family, of friends, of our shared history at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, and of God’s faithfulness for having brought us to this point. The day was everything I had thought it would be – a showcase of our love and experiences set against the backdrop of all of the individuals who had supported us throughout our lives. A true testament of grace, faith, and joy!

From Elizabeth Fogarty… Mike and Amy wanted their day to be a romantic celebration of love. They wanted their guests to have fun and for their day to be overall relaxed. Their key elements were the flowers and small details, like the adorable pink macarons. These two could not be more perfect together. Mike is a caring gentleman while Amy is such a loving bride. They were all smiles on their wedding day. Amy picked elegant long gowns by Jenny Yoo for her bridesmaids. They were a perfect complement to the gold touches throughout the wedding. My Flower Box events did a wonderful job with the flowers! This Annapolis wedding was one for the books.
