Brittland Manor Wedding in Chestertown Maryland | Carleen & Chris

I can honestly say that this was one of our most all-around FUN weddings of 2016. The weather was perfect, the beer was served by the wheel barrow (and as an oyster shooter chaser!), the guests enjoyed Southern comfort food under the outdoor tent at Brittland Estates, some of the bridal party sang with the band, and I got to play with the most lush and beautiful flowers (including anemones!) from to make all of the bouquets and arrangements.  

Carleen and Chris are such a sweet, creative, DIY couple, and they are SO in love. You can see my previous post about Carleen and Chris's engagement session with Bekah Kay Creative here. Carleen drew color inspiration for their wedding from the inside of an oyster shell - grey, lavender, pearly whites/blush, and a dark violet; and weaved touches of Maryland Eastern Shore oyster culture throughout the day. 

Carleen hand crafted all of the signage, a "living room" photo booth backdrop (!), oyster shell escort cards, and watercolor oyster table numbers, and all of the thought and detail she put into her wedding was incredible. She also hand-made the oyster shell table runner for the head table! (It was actually impossible to narrow down this post to just this many photos because there were so many amazing wedding details!)

One of my favorite moments during the wedding day was when Carleen changed into a different dress right before the ceremony, after having her "first look" with Chris and bridal portraits in her first dress. Chris didn't see the new dress until Carleen walked down the aisle, and it made for an even more special moment (and some happy tears!)
