If you need a little prep in your step this afternoon, you’ve come to the right place! Victoria and Charles’ pink and blue wedding in Maryland came with lots of preppy-inspired details from the striped menus to the sailboat groom’s cake – I’m loving it all. (But first make sure to check out their traditional Catholic wedding ceremony!) These preppy love birds celebrated in style at Hunt Valley Golf Club with CINEMATICbyDavid M behind the lens to snap away!
From Victoria: Our wedding was truly the perfect blend of our traditional, preppy style, inspired by the gorgeous scenery of our Hunt Valley Golf Club venue. Charles and I really wanted our wedding to be elegant and classic, yet relaxed and fun. We chose navy, coral and white with accents of gold as our wedding palette to make a pop against the lush greens of mid-September.
For the decor, we wanted to bring the outside in and create a natural glowing look with our floral arrangement and tiered floating candle centerpieces.
We really had two main priorities for our day. We wanted our day to be truly “us” and reflect our personalities. Charles and I had tons of personal details throughout the ceremony and reception space that reflected my artistic side and our mutual love of wine, which Charles also sells professionally, and our Annapolis home.
Victoria’s wedding planning advice for other DC-area couples:
My advice to other DC area couples is to make your day a reflection of you as a couple. I wanted our guests to say, “that was definitely Charles and Victoria.” Infusing your personal style within your space can really make an impression and make your day even more memorable. If you love it, do it!
