One of our Own Gets Married!
August 28, 2014

EasternShoreWedding_0504
Roxanne and Todd are my friends as well as work colleagues as they’re two of the owners of Seasonal Flowers- a wedding florist shop that I LOVE to work with! Since we have this comfort level and familiarity with each other, there’s no other way to say how I felt to be asked to photograph their wedding but THRILLED and HONORED to be sharing this fabulous experience with them!
And so, as Roxanne counted down the days, so did I. As she got more and more excited about some new detail, some new idea, so did I. And when she put on her gown to become Todd’s bride and got a little teary, so did I. I knew what she and Todd and those closest to them had put into this day. And, I knew that it was going to be great!
And, guess what? It was! The Oaks, always a lovely venue, was a perfect place for their marriage. From custom-made games, to wreathed ceremony “doors” to the pretty garland that outlined the bridge handrails, nothing was left undone. And what fun for Todd- his favorite made-from-scratch donuts from Bay Country Bakery stood in for a wedding cake! I love how couples make even this detail their own!
As heartfelt toasts were made, as the scrumptious dinner was served, I watched Roxanne and Todd enjoy every moment.
And I’m wondering if that’s not the point- to savor the sweetest things life has to offer. For this couple, who live AND work together, there sure are going to be a lot of great opportunities!!
Thanks Roxanne and Todd for doing me the honor of capturing the memories of your beautiful wedding day.

MESW Vendor Soiree at The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum!
August 21, 2014

EasternShoreWedding_0488

Tuesday night, a group of MyEasternShoreWedding.com vendors came together at the picturesque Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum to enjoy a little R&R, “meet and greet” and spend a lazy summer evening having a good time being the guests for a change.

I have always believed that we all benefit from knowing each other, sharing “war” stories and recognizing that nourishing a strong network of Eastern Shore wedding vendors is not only in everyone’s best interest, but also the key to our success.

Businesses thrive when we all connect. Brides tell me all the time how wonderful their vendors were- how much they loved working with them all, how creative they were and how they often want to keep connected even after their wedding. Of course, I already know what a talented group we have here on the Shore! I am amazed at how many have embraced the opportunity to support their fellow business people, after all, no one can do every Eastern Shore wedding! I believe these referral relationships are the heart of building the value of our local wedding industry!

For me, it was pure joy to have so many vendors together at one time! I was honored to be able to say “thank you” for making our website one of the best of its kind in the US. So, if I have to plan a party in order to do so, I’m all in! So many special vendors helped to make our soirée a treat. I’d like to give a “shout out” to Heather, Willie and Kathy from Ebb Tide Tents, who let us use some of their high top tables and their whiskey barrel bar, to Kari Rider Events for designing the overall party plan and making it run smoothly, to Ida Heelan and the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum whose fabulous small boat shed gave us the best backgrounds and views we could want, to Seaberry Farms for sweet Mason jar arrangements and to Joe Petro at Hair O’ the Dog Wine and Spirits for his tasty wine selection. Please know how much I appreciate your collective generosity in making our evening perfect!

Cheers!
Melissa

Gimme Shelter… and Peace of Mind and Style!
August 14, 2014

These days, tents are stylish as well as practical. On the Shore, where we’ve been known to have surprise late-day showers, most brides choose to have a tent, particularly for peace of mind. Who knew that tents have become in many ways the star of the show! With so many different styles to choose from, brides are free to include their tent in their other styling decisions. Besides the overall shape of the tent, don’t forget to look up- yes, the ceiling is also your canvas! Adding twinkle lighting, fabric swags, unique fixtures like chandeliers, even floral arrangements and projected patterned images makes your wedding even more visually dramatic and memorable.

Ebb Tide Tent and Party Rentals is just the place to help you find the perfect tent for your event. Locally-owned and -operated, Ebb Tide has been providing quality tents, party rentals and superb customer service to the Eastern Shore community since the mid-70s. One fun fact about them- their family-owned company began as a restaurant, and, due to popular demand, they eventually ventured into the rental business that they have today.

We find that one thing today’s Eastern Shore bride demands and appreciates is prompt and caring customer service along with quality products. The folks at Ebb Tide are available 24/7 to help with any need an event may present. Check out the video below featuring their unique cleaning method for their tents!

Keeping an eye towards innovation while honoring tradition- that’s Ebb Tide’s hallmark. Give Heather, Willie, or Kathy a call at 410-827-0333.
