There’s just nothing prettier than a garden party wedding, and Brittland Estates made the perfect backdrop for Lauren & Tyler’s nuptials! With a team of vendors including White Oak Weddings & Events and Eastern Shore Tents & Events, and photography by Annamarie Akins, we’re totally swooning over this summertime dream of a day!
From Annamarie Akins Photography: What’s better than a day of celebrating your new marriage with all of your friends and family? A WHOLE weekend to celebrate at Brittland Estates, a gorgeous venue on the water just outside of charming Chestertown, MD. Lauren and Tyler arrived several days before their wedding day to spend time with some of the people closest to them, which was especially fitting for them because they have the most joy-filled, funny and loving people in their lives! It was such a huge honor to get to be a part of the celebration with everyone. The day started with all of Lauren’s girls and her mom having a dance party around her as she had her makeup done and ended with dancing in a gorgeous tented reception behind the main house. It really was a perfect, non-stop celebration!
But the ceremony was my absolute favorite part of the day…I don’t know if there’s anything more beautiful than an outdoor garden ceremony! The garden is just off to the side of the main house on a lower tier by the pool and it really felt magical with the fountain in the front and the gorgeous trees and flowers all around. Lauren and Tyler, thank you so much for welcoming us with open arms and for having us be a part of such a sweet season and special day! It was such an incredible honor!

This sweet couple planned their elegant downtown wedding at the historic Tidewater Inn, the same venue that the bride’s parents were married years before!
From Melissa Grimes-Guy Photography: It was such fun to shoot Brooke and Joey’s elegantly sophisticated wedding! While I’ve known Brooke’s mother and sister from days gone by, I had not known Brooke before she asked me to be her wedding photographer. What a sweetheart, and what a wonderful groom she has found in Joey! The Tidewater Inn looked lovely and once again reminded me that you don’t have to have water views to have the PERFECT wedding! In fact, there’s something so classy about a downtown wedding, especially in charming Easton, Maryland. Surrounded and supported by friends and family, their whole day was an event that I’m sure they’ll cherish always. What a great way to begin their lives together!
