Coastal Meets Classic at the Inn at Perry Cabin

Jaime and Brendan’s love story is literally something out of a movie! After meeting in Miami while en route to Paraguay with 48 other Peace Corps volunteers, the couple bonded over late-night card games and sips of wine while engaging in impassioned talks of their dreams for the future. Two years, an 8-hour drive between assignments, and many abbreviated phone calls later (due to poor reception), Jaime and Brendan knew they were in it for the long haul. Their engagement was s true reflection of the journey they’d travel as a couple—a mutual proposal and exchange of rings atop the Mauna Kea Volcano in Hawaii.

The couple chose to wed at the Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels—a nod to Jaime’s roots as an officer in the Navy and the couple’s shared love of the water. Rain prevented the planned waterfront ceremony, but that didn’t put a damper on the festivities. Following cocktails inside the inn, guests were escorted to the sailcloth reception tent, where we combined layers of white, blue and gold to create an atmosphere of relaxed elegance. We juxtaposed lacy white and ocean blue linens with grey-wash farm tables to add textural interest—and tied everything together with classic white rounded back chairs. Gold-rimmed swirl chargers, sea-glass blue water glasses, and navy and gold flatware stole the show atop the tables, with subtle nautical accents like knotted napkin folds bringing everything full circle. The rain outside only added to the ambiance inside the tent—an intimate celebration for two warm-hearted people. See more from this gorgeous wedding captured by Elisa Bricker over on Style Me Pretty

Being based on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, we’re constantly finding new ways to reinvent “nautical.” For our spring studio tablescape, we wanted to add a little bit of a modern twist to the classic navy and white color palette, bringing in square plates from Eastern Shore Tents & Events, geometric place card holders from Esselle and a fun patterned napkin from La Tavola Fine Linen. We think it’s the perfect mix of classic and modern, all gorgeously captured by Lauren R. Swann! See more over on Fashionable Hostess!
