Our Wedding Day Vendors

LONG OVERDUE- Ive been meaning to write this FORVER but here I am almost 6 months later doing it! Without my wedding vendors my wedding dream would never have gone into fruition.  I had a lot of questions from future brides on my vendors so I’ve made a comprehensive list for y’all! (especially good for eastern shore/md/de brides to be)!

We got married on September 7, 2019 at Brittland Manor in Chestertown, Md (my hometown)! Brittland Estates . It was a warm 78 degree and sunny day, we could not have asked for a more beautiful day!

Our wedding planner was the lovely Grace Bourne and her team from Connect the Dots Events  Connect the Dots– without them, this would have never been possible. Grace and I have known each other since kindergarden which made it even more special to have her by my side for the year ❤

I kept my invitations simple and it was a great way to stay on budget (from Minted).

~Our Jeweler is the lovely DeSumma & Wexler Desumma & Wexler  located on Jewelers Row in Philadelphia.  They made the process so special for us from start to finish and I hope to be a lifelong client there (LOL).

~We used Rob Korb Photography Rob Korb Photography and without him and his team I don’t know how we would have captured such beautiful moments of our special day. Rob also was super calm during my nervousness throughtout the day 🙂

~For Catering we used a great family friend who makes the best food EVER. Magnolia Catering Magnolia CaterersYou can taste the food from my pictures ! The pictures below are from our cocktail hour and wedding cake – not even the delicious crab cake I can still taste! 

I wanted our wedding to have all the natural elements of the Eastern Shore and whimsical like florals and greenery which Steelcut Flowers Co. made into a reality. We worked with Emma and she truly was a visonary. Steelcut Flower 

Its the little details that make the big picture- I LOVEd having Slay Displays Slay Displays as a focal point at our wedding during our cocktail hour. They brought the love, literally. They traveled all the way to Maryland for our special day!

Another focal point was the flower wall we had at our reception from Dnicole Settings D Nicole  Absolutely beautiful.

Our seating chart I found a business on etsy that custom made signs and just added that element of splendor. Woodland Custom Designs Woodland Customs . Their turn around time was amazing and the sign came packaged so nicely! They had a lot of great options to choose from.  This one went with our overall theme, I absolutely loved it!

We used Eastern Shore Tents and Events and they did a wonderful job working with us start to finish! They covered it all from tents, to chairs, to our dance floor, to our silverware.  We were able to have a beautiful sailcloth tent and it was a vision! ESTE

I could upload the 500+ pictures we have but that would take forever. It truly was the best day and it all came together so smoothly and seamlessly.  I wish I could replay the day!
