Intimate Holiday Wedding in St. Michaels

Inn at Perry Cabin Wedding Planner & Designer


There’s no cozier place around the holidays than The Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels, especially when you’re looking to host an intimate wedding! As brisk winds whipped off the water outside, guests enjoyed a warm candlelit reception inside one of the Inn’s quaint event rooms with the bride and groom. Keeping with a traditional holiday look, we layered hunter green velvet napkins with scalloped gold-rimmed plates, driftwood chargers, gold flatware and deep red menus to create a warm and festive scene on the long king’s table—where all the guests dined together. Lush rouge blooms, soft-lit candles and the cutest plaid-wrapped favor boxes completed the merry scene on a very merry day!

Eastern Shore Glam Wedding at Perry Cabin

St. Michaels Wedding Planner & Designer


The Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels proved to be the ideal setting for S+B’s “Eastern Shore glam” wedding vision. As a nod to the waterfront setting, we took a cool-tone approach when designing this elegant fall celebration. Rich florals mixed with cool blues and pops of gold to create a look that is strikingly unique. Inside the clear-top tent, we drew eyes up with elegant crystal chandeliers, hanging floral arrangements and soft draping. Back at eye level, we achieved the sought-after “Eastern Shore glam” look by layering patterned and plain navy linens (a nod to the waterfront setting) with natural wood chairs and pops of gold—most notably in the gold-trimmed bar accented by a boxwood wall backdrop. All the stars aligned—as seen through the clear-top tent!—to create this one-of-a-kind celebration for the new Mr. and Mrs.

Colorful Inn at Perry Cabin Wedding

St. Michaels Maryland Wedding Planner & Designer


When the bride wants to elope and the groom wants a (semi) traditional wedding, what else is there to do but compromise? For Erica and Dave, compromise came in the form of an intimate, 90-guest wedding at the waterfront Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels—a relaxed setting that reminded the couple of Erica’s family home in New England.

With our help, the DC-based couple found inspiration in the shades of the sea but with a funky, fresh twist. Think electric blue brushed linens; custom watercolor illustrations on everything from the invitations to the ceremony programs to the escort board monogram; ginger jars from the bride’s vintage collection on the reception tables and at the ceremony site; and the bride’s custom ocean blue-bodiced Modern Trousseau gown.

There was no shortage of meaningful touches either. Erica and Dave handpicked books to exchange during their first look—a book of modern love poems from him, a hiking guide from her. And perhaps the most special detail of all, Erica’s dad wrote an original song that the ceremony musicians learned for their processional. It was a day full of fun, laughter and lasting memories. A joyful, colorful and eclectic affair with a lot of personality.
