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.

Modern Meets Botanical in St. Michaels

Inn at Perry Cabin Wedding Planner & Designer

featured, Weddings

Meghan and Sid wanted to keep things low-key and intimate for their spring nuptials at the picturesque Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels. So we got to work creating a scene that blended the waterfront setting with the bride’s vision for a modern meets botanical vibe. Enter greenery chandeliers, cool blue velvet linens, black flatware, wooden cross-back chairs, and a well-equipped cigar bar—all beneath a gorgeous sailcloth tent. Keeping with the intimate vibe, guests dined at long king tables, where black acrylic table numbers gave an added punch, as did the adorable salt and pepper bowls we sourced. No where was the weaving of setting and theme more evident than in the cake display—a stunning two-tier cake with a blue wave pattern accented by focal roses that sat on a marble stand atop a black and white striped linen. The epitome of waterfront meets modern meets botanical! Insane wind gusts prevented us from being able to leave the tent fully open—and rendered the pedestals for the ceremony flowers useless—but nothing was taking the wind out of Meghan and Sid’s sails on their wedding day!
