Lauren and Drew were married at the groom’s parents home along the Severn River in Annapolis, Md. last spring. “We truly felt that our wedding day was not just a celebration of each other, but also for everyone who made us into the couple we are today,” Lauren said. The bride wore a v-neck mermaid wedding gown with a beaded bodice and tulle skirt, accessorized with a floral wreath in her sideswept ponytail, while the groom wore a navy blue suit, accessorized with a striped tie and pair of Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes. Bridesmaids wore short coral dresses in various fabrics and carried bouquets of hydrangeas. Believe it or not — Lauren arrived to the ceremony on a boat — and 220 guests were in attendance when the couple said their, “I do’s.” Afterwards, a bagpiper led the recessional into the tent. Tables were decorated with gray linens and tall floral centerpieces, signature spiked lemonade and watermelon mojito cocktails and seafood fare were served, and crab mallet favors were at each place setting. There even was fun, games, (and candy) for the kids! Notice the goodie bags? A long night of dancing with provided flip flops ended with a sparkler send off and safe travels to their African safari honeymoon. See the full board here.

Laura and Robert were married at Stone Manor Country Club in Middletown, Md. last spring. “Being mid-April, I was worried about rain,” Laura said. “But the day we got married was beautiful, and the sun was shining.” The bride wore a lace a-line wedding gown, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a light gray suit, accessorized with a pink tie. “I wanted something really simple, not too over-the-top,” she said. “I found a lot of my ideas online. A few of the things I did were do-it-yourself too.” Following the Jewish ceremony, guests were given a mason jar with handwritten chalkboard stickers on it. Bonus: It doubled as their seating assignment! “Rob and I really didn’t want a big wedding,” Laura said. “I only wanted 75 people, but we ended up inviting 130 and only 109 attended. I was perfectly happy with that. I was glad I was able to speak with everyone and still have time to have fun.” The newlyweds performed their first dance to Bob Dylan’s “To Make You Feel My Love.” Oh but one of the prettiest details was the mini cake. How can you resist those flowers? See the full board here.

Natalie + Brian: A Rustic Riverside Fall Maryland Wedding By Karena Dixon Photography

Natalie and Brian were married along the Chester River at a private farm estate in Queenstown, Md. last October. “Our mothers were in a ‘mothers group’ when they were pregnant with both of us,” Natalie said. “So, we have literally known each other our whole lives. We were childhood friends and began dating our junior year of high school.” These sweethearts knew they wanted a classic yet elegant wedding full of rustic details. Almost everything was DIY, from the wooden signage and paper leaf escort cards to the pumpkin centerpieces and homemade caramel popcorn favors in brown bags. “It was a gorgeous fall day – better than I could have imagined,” she said. “All the trees in the backyard were a warm golden yellow color. It started to cloud up after the ceremony, but it never really start to rain, which was great!” Since the couple didn’t do a first look, they decided to take portraits following the ceremony. Natalie was glowing in her lace wedding gown, accessorized with a curly side updo, while Brian looked dapper in his tan suit, accessorized with suspenders and a bow tie. Their golden retriever puppy even made an appearance in a few photos too! The night ended with a sparkler send off and the newlyweds cruising off in a vintage car. See the full board here.

Jennifer + Patrick: A Preppy Waterfront Maryland Inn Wedding By Krista A. Jones Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Photos: Krista A. Jones Photography

Jen and Pat’s eight-month engagement was almost all long-distance! An international one, including flights, Skype calls, and adventures in Nicaragua, where the bride was working for a non-profit organization. They chose to have an intimate wedding of 60 guests at Osprey Point. “Our ceremony was intimate and emotional. I broke out in tears on the way down the aisle just out of sheer gratitude for our family, friends, the beauty of the venue, and the man waiting for me at the end of the aisle.” The color scheme ranged from peach to coral and turquoise to mint with accents of gold. Bridesmaids wore mix and matched dresses, statement necklaces, and groomsmen wore preppy bow ties (until one groomsmen’s got thrown away) and ties. It was the only “oops” of the day. Ombre escort cards hung from clothespins, antique vases and vessels were filled with all white single stem bouquets. and Old Bay favors were at each place setting. In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, the couple opted for multiple mini Smith Island cakes — a Maryland staple. To end the night, guests watched wish lanterns illuminate the sky. See the full board here.
