After a small hiatus, we’re returning to the blogging realm with vengeance! It’s been such a wild and amazing summer wedding season so far, and we are literally brimming over with many unique adventures to share! To kick off our comeback, we want to revisit a very special wedding from this past April at the Tidewater Inn in Easton, Maryland. Stefanie and Jared are two of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet and their love for each other was even sweeter as well as incredibly warm, transparent and infectious. The two were brought together by Match.com after quite a bit of hesitation on their part and heavy persuasion from friends after they both moved to DC. In fact, Jared’s co-worker was so determined to get him into the dating pool that he signed him up and paid for his membership for him! Fortunately Jared didn’t have to look too far because Stef was his very first date! Not long after meeting, they both cancelled their profiles with fast confidence!
We loved Stefanie’s soft pink and white rose bouquet by Seaberry Farm, especially when she held it up against her dress designed by Matthew Christopher.
Prior to her wedding, we asked Stef to describe her wedding to which she replied, “classic, elegant and vintage.” And that was certainly what it was! We don’t think there was a better place to achieve such expressions than the Tidewater Inn!
Stef’s bridesmaids had the coolest lace dresses!
Everywhere we seemed to look at this venue, there was always a cool textured and weathered background close by, such as this old brick wall.
Stefanie and Jared exchanged vows in the Crystal Room which featured baby-blue walls, tall windows, chandeliers and an accented fireplace. Truly timeless!
The Gold Ballroom was so spacious and had a lot of nice features such as lots of soft window light, high ceilings, elegant chandeliers, a huge wooden dance floor and a vintage-style bar.
Their adorable cake sat atop three tiers of delectable cupcakes by JoJo’s Cupcakes. The chevron table runners were a nice addition of color to the table centerpieces!
