Natalie & Matthew wanted their wedding to hark back to a time of simple, understated glamour. As a blogger whose focus is on the nostalgia for the elegance of yesteryear, she wanted it to feel as though they had escaped to a country estate for the weekend to dance and dine under a tent with rolling green fields surrounding us. These beautiful images by ANNAMARIE AKINS sure look like they achieved that! Planned by KARI RIDER it featured florals by FLORAL & BLOOM DESIGNS and a princess like HAYLEY PAIGE wedding gown.
Bride Natalie says, "I also knew I wanted to incorporate a Provençal feel with lavender, farm to table food and simple décor. As a Francophile (my BLOG and my general aesthetic is based on my love of all things French), I knew there would be a lot of French influence. The eastern shore had the perfect amount of feeling like a weekend getaway without being too far for a lot of our guests. I loved incorporating signature Maryland details like crab and the sailcloth tent into my French-inspired vision."
