Happy Monday everyone!  It might be cold and gray outside these days, but the fabulous sunshine from this Eastern Shore wedding from Brian Tropiano Photography definitely has me looking forward to spring and the return of warm weather!  Sarah and Adam were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at the lovely Brittland Manor near historic Chestertown, Maryland, with an array of beautiful DIY details to help complete the wedding’s classic nautical style.

As Adam and Sarah planned for their big day, they knew they wanted to incorporate their love of classic Eastern Shore living, with crisp, clean, and tailored details.   Sarah and Adam envisioned an elegant and traditional wedding that utilized the natural beauty of the outdoor setting.  To achieve their wedding style, Sarah and Adam chose a color palette that they felt best embodied the Eastern Shore – navy blue, cream, and apple green.

As anyone who lives in Maryland knows, blue crabs are the unofficial state mascot.  Naturally, designing a wedding theme around the region’s iconic blue crab was an absolute must.  The crab mallet favors were purchased from a store on the Eastern Shore and finished off with a simple ribbon and handwritten tag.

Adam’s sister Jennifer designed and printed all of the save the dates, invitations, programs, and table cards.  Sarah created and handwrote each escort card that hung on a line of buoys that the couple found in an antique shop in Fenwick Island, Delaware, while on vacation.
