The Eastern Shore is made up of so many beautiful and unique towns. Photographers are in heaven not only with the beautiful mid-day light, but the picturesque sights around every corner. One great example is the quaint waterfront town of Oxford. There is just one road into Oxford, with a Main Street consisting of gorgeous waterfront views and white picket fences. Great food is in abundance with Latitude 38 (vendor under Catering) serving up a uniquely American cuisine and Masthead (vendor under Rehearsal Dinner) THE place to eat steamed crabs.
We loved that new vendor Laura Matney from Laura’s Focus Photography shared with us an engagement session she shot in this sweet little town. We fell in love with Laura’s bright, candid style, really showcasing this couple’s fun personality (they met at a University of Maryland Frat party!). In fact, Laura grew up sailing around Oxford (Miles River) and the Chesapeake Bay and was happy to be back home. Laura is now based in Easton and welcomes the opportunity to photograph those lucky enough to get married on our beautiful Eastern Shore!

We love to feature Real Weddings on MyEasternShoreWedding.com! It’s certainly not hard to find one here on the Shore. The Inn at Osprey Point, a beautiful waterfront venue located in Rock Hall, Maryland, was the setting for this beautiful day.
In the brides’ words:
“I could not have dreamed of a more amazing wedding day. The Inn at Osprey Point provided a stunning, yet intimate waterfront backdrop for what turned out to be the perfect place to marry my best friend, and celebrate with fifty of our closest friends and family. The whole experience, from beginning to end was seamless thanks to the entire staff and crew at Osprey Point, especially the event planners Casey and Devon. Everyone at Osprey Point was so nice to work with and went out of their way countless times to make sure our wedding day was everything we wanted, and more.”
You know the saying… If the bride is happy, then everyone is happy!

In the spirit of Halloween, we thought we’d share with you this festively-fall cocktail! It’s simple, it’s delicious, and it’s packed with the flavors of the season. Here’s what you’ll need:
Sparkling White Wine (we used a bubbly pino)
Pumpkin Brew (we used a pumpkin ale)
Directions: Chop apples into small slices and drop in the glass. Combine one part each of the sparkling white, pumpkin brew and apple cider. Stir with cinnamon sticks and garnish with a sprig of rosemary. Can be served hot or cold!
So grab two glasses and cuddle up this weekend with the mister. Au revoir, October!
