Au Revoir, 2017!

Today is New Year's Eve, 2017, and we're bundled up at home under plenty of blankets, trying to avoid the 19 degree chill outside. There is a thin coating of snow on the ground that just won't melt, and we're munching on leftover Christmas cookies before noon.

Virginia Countryside Wedding in The Plains | Stephanie & Max

Oh where to even begin with this gorgeous, meaningful, fun, stylish, curated, elegant wedding, recently featured on Style Me Pretty!

Add to this a Vera Wang gown, calligraphy and full paper goods by Stephanie B Design, florals and greenery from Sweet Root Village, and film photography by Julie Paisley, and I knew this would quickly turn into one of my favorite weddings of my career...

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, some of the bridal party sang with the band, and I got to play with the most lush and beautiful flowers...
