Happy, happy Monday! We’re jumping right into things with a breathtaking waterfront wedding in Southern Maryland that lends itself as some perfect summer wedding inspiration, all beautifully captured by Hannah Colclazier Photography. Ashley and Scott’s casual affair along the St. Mary’s River is wrapped in sunshine and a gorgeous outdoor setting ripe with bright florals and an adorable duo at the center of it all. Don’t forget to come back later this morning to see their nautical-inspired and DIY wedding details!
From Ashley: Before we picked our venue I had a hundred different visions for the wedding, but once we settled on Historic St. Mary’s City, I used that as inspiration to use art nouveau and nautical touches. The color palette was dark teal, yellow and copper accents. I tried to keep the theme subtle.
Going into into it, I knew the one thing that I wanted to splurge on was getting a top notch photographer. I love photography and having great photos was really important to both of us and our families. I researched and interviewed many photographers before I found Hannah. The photos are the one thing you get to keep from that day, besides your husband, of course.
Most of our guests were from out of town so we wanted to give them a fun Maryland experience. Our venue is the first capital of Maryland and is on the St. Mary’s River.
