Hello and welcome back to Laura and Nat’s wedding in Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay. (Don’t forget to check out their outdoor, waterfront wedding ceremony first!) I’m just a little bit in love (and super impressed!) with all of their DIY touches that they worked on for their wedding – signs, escort cards, frames, painted jars, votives, drink cards, favors – I’m tired just listing it all!  Leslie Koehn was there to capture all of the lovely moment of their beautiful, springtime wedding on the bay! And, scroll all the way to the bottom because we have a video treat too!

Laura’s advice for other couples in the DC area planning a wedding: 

Not everything is going to go 100% right through your planning and day-of, but chances are you will be the only one who realizes if any mishaps do happen. At the end of the day, you will be married to your best friend, the love of your life and surrounded by all of your closest friends and family, so if some things do not go perfectly, it won’t ruin the experience, although it might make for a better story later! Roll with the punches and enjoy every moment. Try and take a few minutes with one another during your dinner reception to eat and also catch your breath. While doing so, take a look around and see all the friends/family who came from all over to celebrate and share in our special day. It really is the most overwhelmingly blessed feeling ever.

As a bonus, we have a Laura and Nat’s wedding trailer video from Bella Bride Wedding Films. Here is what Laura had to say about their video: “If you can find room in your budget, get a videographer. The day flies by so quickly. It has been amazing to not only look back at our photos but to also watch our videos, re-living all of the happy and heartfelt emotions and expressions from our special day.”
