Lavender Filled Eastern Shore Wedding

Inn at Huntingfield Creek Wedding Planner & Designer

featured, Weddings

To say Natalie was a dream bride would be a crazy understatement. As a fashion writer and creator of the lifestyle blog The Everyday Belle, Natalie had a clear vision for her and her fiancé Matt’s wedding day: a Provençal-inspired, lavender-filled celebration that felt like a weekend escape to a country estate. Check, check and check! With the Inn at Huntingfield Creek as the perfect backdrop, we created a soft and romantic scene with a 1920s glamour twist to give Natalie the elegant yet relaxed vibe she envisioned—with a few Eastern Shore touches, of course, like the statement sailcloth tent! And it was no coincidence the lavender fields were in full bloom on this gorgeous couple’s wedding day, tying theme to venue in perfect fashion! See more of this beautiful celebration on Magnolia Rouge!

Greenery Inspired Beach Club Wedding

Chesapeake Bay Beach Club Wedding Planner & Designer

featured, Weddings

Casey and Griffin’s Chesapeake Bay Beach Club wedding has our neutral-loving hearts aflutter! We kept things super clean inside the Beach House Ballroom, with the focus on a statement white-washed farm table for the bridal party capped by a greenery-heavy floral installation. The contrast of the lush greens and crisp whites is giving us all the feels! Couple that with a gorgeous ceremony overlooking the Chesapeake Bay, perfectly mismatched bridal party dresses, and the most adorable couple, and it’s safe to say we’re smitten with this one! See more of this stunner in the current issue of The Knot’s DC, Maryland and Virginia magazine!

Relaxed Waterfront Wedding in St. Michaels

Eastern Shore of Maryland Wedding Planner & Designer


It’s just about that time of year when we’re dying for gorgeous tent views like the scene at Amanda and Russell’s waterfront celebration at Point Pleasant Farm outside St. Michaels. The windswept dresses, the pop of coral, the custom bar, the adorable ice cream cart. This wedding is bringing us back to life! Add in a few creative nods to the couple’s profession in the sports arena—a ticket booth escort card display, a custom bride and groom bobblehead, and a surplus of “Team Tisch” foam fingers to liven up the dance floor—and we’re officially counting down the days until summer wedding season. In the meantime, we’ll just keep swooning over this beauty captured by the fabulous Kate Headley! Enjoy!
