Eastern Shore, Maryland Real Wedding

Bellafare,, an adorable boutique event planning company shared with us their, “By the Bay,” Eastern Shore, Maryland wedding.

This beautiful wedding took place at the groom’s summer home in Maryland. Both the bride and groom grew up in Maryland and have always loved being on the water. The groom proposed a year prior in the very spot where they exchanged their vows. With this wedding they wanted to express their love of the bay in every little detail. Bellafare achieved this by hosting the ceremony on the pier, having the bride and groom depart on a boat that read “just married,” and sending guests home with Maryland crab shaped cookies.

The couple is very family oriented and incorporating their dog Sadie and their 8-year-old son was a must. Their airstream (a.k.a Bambi) that was featured on the groom’s cake represents their laid back and active lifestyle.

The choosing of her Vera Wang dress came from her need for a design that was vintage yet ethereal and romantic. In fact, one of April’s biggest passions is collecting antiques, which was apparent in her diverse assortment of vases and juleps spread throughout the dinner tables. Bellafare incorporated other vintage touches through the use of lace tablecloths and other family heirloom linens.

While they love Maryland, the couple now resides in Florida where they often listen to bluegrass music while fishing on their boat. This love of bluegrass led to the booking of the band, Tab Benoit that perfectly complimented the country chic theme.

Luxurious Turquoise Wedding Jewelry

We love Turquoise Jewelry!

So, when Jennifer Williams Photography shared her recent jewelry shoot with us we had to share. Designed and handmade by Don Lucas, these traditional Southwestern pieces draw from traditional Native American designs with a unique flare. They include stones such as stylish turquoise, luxurious Italian coral, and orange spiny oyster. Diamonds are marvelous but, we know that some of you ladies are planning to spice it up in the jewels department. Why not consider turquoise wedding jewelry?

We love the vibrant color that this adds to the whole wedding look and feel.
