Samantha and Dan chose a perfectly quaint Maryland wedding venue, Glenview Mansion, for their rustic meets bohemian wedding. They wanted to carry out their vision of a unique wedding and found inspiration in all of their favorite things! The couple’s bunny Cappuccino is such a big part of their lives that they wanted to make sure he was present on the wedding day in spirit. They incorporated Cappuccino by naming their wedding signature cocktail, “Cappuccino’s Cocktail,” after him; the drink was made of spiced apple cider. They also had an adorable bunny stamp on their wedding invitations and ceremony programs as a small personal touch. Although married in the heart of the fall season, they went for a non traditional color palette for the big day weaving in the brides favorite color, blue. Navy bridesmaids dresses paired with wild pink florals complimented the gentlemen in blue suiting. We loved the mixture of fall decor accents, such as pumpkins, against the unique color pops. Thank you to Amber Kay Photography for sharing today’s rustic meets bohemian Maryland wedding!

From the Bride: “Our vision was an elegant, romantic, fall garden wedding with a beautiful, historic mansion as the focal point. My favorite color is blue, so we chose navy bridesmaid dresses, and navy suits and light blue ties for the groomsmen. Dan wore a navy suit and a blue bison plaid tie, with a blue thistle boutonniere. Our Save the Dates and wedding invitations incorporated different shades of blue, and the ceremony programs were printed on blue card stock. Pink was the accent color, which we used in the bouquets, and the Chuppah flowers incorporated both blue and pink.

We really tried to carry out our vision for the wedding in just about every detail- our photographer’s style of pictures (romantic, light, airy), the bohemian-inspired floral designs, the framed vintage pictures, the elegant historic venue, the ceremony location in the garden with a rustic Chuppah, the colorful beautifully presented food, my bridal look (soft romantic makeup, vintage-inspired jewelry and dress, soft up-do), the rustic simple naked cake, the handmade guestbook, etc.”

“My favorite moments were our first look (I had to make it down a million stone steps without falling to reach Dan!) and walking down the aisle with my dad.”

“The white birch Chuppah used in our wedding ceremony was handmade, we ordered the parts from an Etsy store and assembled the Chuppah ourselves. The wine glass that we drank out of for the wine blessing was my mother’s glass used at her wedding. I also  personally handmade our guest book, the white bird cage card holder, the ceremony programs, and collected all of the picture frames used throughout the mansion of our friends and family.”

Tips from the Bride: “Take the time to research vendors outside of your immediate area. We found the most amazing photographer in VA about an hour from where we live, but it was so worth it!

We found it extremely valuable to have a wedding planner, especially for day-of coordination. Elegance and Simplicity kept us on track and made sure everything went as planned, which meant that we could enjoy our wedding without having to worry about any of the details or timing of things.”
