The Eastern Shore may be known for its picturesque shorelines, but there’s a whole lot of beauty inland as well! Look no further than this rustic peach orchard shoot—featured recently on Wedding Chicks—to see for yourself! Cocooned beneath the leafy branches of Blades Orchard’s charming peach trees, we created a scene influenced by the range of hues in the peach spectrum—from classic peach to deep crimson, and everything in between. Subtle nods to the fruit of the land—like peach embellished paper goods, a peach tart at each place setting and a peach mint julep signature drink—were balanced by rich tones in the basketweave chargers and stunning floral arrangements rife with the fullest peony blooms we’ve ever seen! Enjoy!

Waterfront weddings are definitely our jam, and this beauty from last season still has us swooning! From the gorgeous bride and groom portraits in a most felicitous sunflower field to the wildflower-lined mahogany farm tables to the adorable naked cake, everything about this Tred Avon Yacht Club wedding in Oxford, Maryland was as natural as the couple saying “I do.” Previously featured on Style Me Pretty, this wedding is a rustic meets boho meets Eastern Shore dream, beautifully captured by Krista and Davey of Krista A. Jones Photography. Enjoy!

Office Tour on Style Me Pretty

We couldn’t be more thrilled to finally share Natalie Franke’s fabulous photos from the Kari Rider Events office tour recently featured on Style Me Pretty Living. A two-month renovation right on the cusp of wedding season called for a few quick decisions and a lot of trust. Fortunately, Kari’s eye for design and vision for the space made everything seamless (or at least that’s how we choose to remember the process!). Drawing inspiration from the understated elegance inherent to Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Kari layered cool grays and brilliant whites with wood tones and mixed metals to create a setting that’s in a word: dreamy. It’s rustic romance meets coastal chic, with a touch of whimsy via our darling bar cart that’s always prepared for Happy Hour! Check out our services page to learn more about the new studio offerings.
