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!

Dusty Blue + White St. Michaels Wedding

Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum Wedding Planner

featured, Weddings

As a journalist, Katie has traveled the world chasing stories and residing in places like Abu Dhabi with her fiancé Ben. But when it came time to plan their wedding, the University of Pennsylvania grads sought the comforts of home—Katie’s parents’ home of St. Michaels, Maryland to be exact. The couple spent many a weekend in the quaint Eastern Shore town while living in D.C., and knew it would provide the perfect backdrop for the elegant yet relaxed celebration we helped them plan. As a nod to the maritime culture of St. Michaels, we contrasted brilliant whites with hints of dusty blue and gold to create a scene that perfectly complemented the venue’s coastal vibe. The rain prohibited the planned outdoor ceremony and open views of the water from the sweeping tent, but the resilient bride and groom didn’t let that put a damper on the celebration they simply described as fun! Photographer Perry Vaile beautifully captured all the details and scenes of the day, including some stunning bride and groom portraits in between rain showers. The day turned out exactly as we’d hoped—the perfect celebration for a perfect couple! See more on Grey Likes Weddings
