Blue & Blush Ocean-Inspired Chesapeake Bay Foundation Wedding

February 11, 2019

Hard to believe Kate and Kevin grew up only 10 minutes apart, but didn't meet until a chance encounter in a physical therapy office in 2013. After a little match-making by another PT aide, Kate and Kevin started chatting online. They messaged each other almost every day, mainly about their shared love of the Baltimore Ravens! The day they finally met in real life, Kevin was assigned to be Kate's physical therapy aide. Kate was SO embarrassed to have this cute guy telling her how to do these silly floor exercises (and watching her do them)! Meanwhile, Kevin thought she was GORGEOUS, but he was too busy with school and his future career for a girlfriend. Kate knew what she wanted though. Her never-ending persistence and kindness stole Kevin's heart. #GIRLBOSS The Philip Merrill Environmental Center in Annapolis, MD was the perfect backdrop for this beach-loving couple!! Their stunning reception room was designed by Elle Ellinghaus Designs. It was filled with rose-colored goblets, soft-teal seaglass, watercolor table numbers, blush spray roses, real sand, driftwood, and even some starfish. The head table for the bridal party was a farmhouse table with a lace runner. The bride even learned calligraphy so she could create her own custom oyster escort cards. Remember that shared love of the Ravens?! Their parents surprised the couple by hiring POE the Ravens Mascot to crash their cocktail hour! And I can't leave out this sentimental moment that had the whole room in tears. Kevin surprised Kate with a gift on the wedding day. It was a beautiful locket. Kevin secretly gathered pieces of family heirlooms to create a NEW heirloom just for Kate. The inside contains a piece from Kate's grandmother's corsage (who passed away), a fabric swatch & beads from Kevin's mom's wedding dress, her great grandmother's wedding band (who shares the same anniversary date as the newlyweds), a dried flower from Kate's mom's bouquet, as well as a piece of blue fabric from her mom's garter. So much thought and planning made us all feel Kevin's love for Kate. Lastly, the unspoken hero of the day. The beautiful scenery of the Chesapeake Bay. The perfect blue skies, a cooling breeze, and the scent of saltwater in the air. It's a beach-lovers dream!
