An Autumn Engagement
March 3, 2015

It’s finally March and most of us are ready to welcome warmer temperatures and the greening of spring! While I’m definitely more of a warm-weather kind of gal, I inevitably find myself missing the chill of fall and winter when they’re gone…cozy layers, hot chocolate and roaring fires hold a special place in my heart, too! While we’re still in the midst of these wintery temperatures, let’s take a minute to savor the warmth of cold-weather engagement sessions like this one shot by Melissa Grimes-Guy Photography:

“Caitlin and Josh are from Virginia and are in the midst of planning their upcoming wedding at The Oaks in Royal Oak, Maryland. When they told me they also wanted to do their engagement session somewhere on the Shore, needless to say, I was so excited! We talked about a look and feel for their session and I knew just the place…a venue that has it all—panoramic views of the Miles River, charming Eastern Shore ambiance, and steeped in history and heritage of the Chesapeake Bay. Is it any wonder that the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is one of my favorite places to shoot portraiture? The museum property is a photographer’s dream come true. Working with Caitlin and Josh was such fun! They wanted to use the various backgrounds available to us at the museum which we definitely did—and what a beautiful day we had!”

Coastal Fog Wedding Inspiration
February 26, 2015

We cannot get enough of this gorgeous Coastal Fog styled shoot featured in Premier Bride of Maryland! Kari Rider Events and Intrigue Design & Decor were inspired by the stunning setting and views at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club to create a lovely neutral palate that mimicked the blues and greys of the rocks, sand, and seagrass found along the shore. Lindsay Hite of READYLUCK perfectly captured this moody scene!

Silver Swan Soiree
February 19, 2015

EasternShoreWedding_0888What better way to warm up this chilly week than to share with you Casey & Jordan’s Silver Swan Bayside wedding! From the beautiful blooms to the beachside sunset, this spectacular event has us longing for spring. Casey and Jordan’s sweet story is guaranteed to warm your heart, so pull up a chair and take a few moments to escape the winter blues… 

“Ours is not a traditional love story in terms of meet, fall in love, get married, and have children. All of those components are there but just in a little different order.

Jordan and I met Halloween 2011. I was dressed as a cowgirl sitting outside of Ryleighs Oyster Bar waiting for a ride and was greeted by a charming guy dressed up as a penguin. He kept me company until my mom arrived and then introduced himself to her, asking permission to “facebook her daughter.” We said our goodbyes and I never thought I would hear from him again. When my friends asked if he was cute my only answer was “I have no idea, he was dressed as a giant penguin.” Turns out he was very cute!

To my surprise, the next day I had a friend request and message from Jordan. (I later learned that he had also friend-requested and messaged about five other Casey Davis’, too!). Our real friendship began soon after with many long nights of phone conversations getting to know each other. It was during these conversations that I learned that Jordan was a naval officer, had been married, and had recently lost his wife Lauren, to cystic fibrosis, and that they had a 14-month-old daughter.

We had our first official date on January 21, 2012—goose hunting… and let me just say it was an activity no one I knew would have ever expected me to do. Our second date was on January 28th where we did the Polar Bear Plunge. It was at this time that I got to meet his beautiful daughter, Kaelyn and where I believe our true love story really began.

The first year of our relationship was sometimes hard to navigate—not because of what we felt for each other, but because of the many different lives that would be affected by our relationship. We were essentially combining three different families and groups of friends—mine, Jordan’s and Lauren’s.  There were definitely ups and downs as we all got to know each other but I can say with conviction that we are definitely now all one big happy family.

Jordan proposed on Christmas Eve 2012.  His intentions were to actually do it on Christmas morning and he had purchased a shirt for Kaelyn to wear that said “All I want for Christmas is for Casey to be my mommy.”  However, Jordan being Jordan, couldn’t wait. As part of our Christmas Eve celebration with the family,  we have a traditional game that we often play at mealtime called “good thing, bad thing”.  Each person has to go around the table and say something good and something bad that happened to them that day (or you can say two good things!). When it was Jordan’s turn, he got down on one knee and said, “Bad thing, I’ve had to wait this long. Good thing, Will you marry me?”.

And so the wedding preparations began.  We chose May 17, 2014, as that was also my parents’ anniversary.  We knew we wanted to be on the water so we spent one day visiting three different venues. The moment we walked into Silver Swan Bayside we knew that was the perfect place for our wedding. The setting, the ambience, the staff, the menu…everything was just what we wanted and so the date was set.

Then mother nature threw in a little glitch.  I found out I was pregnant and due 3 months before our wedding.  As I mentioned earlier, not so traditional! Our beautiful baby girl Alexia was born on February 16, 2014 and wedding plans continued.           

We shared our dream wedding with the people we love most and the day was absolutely perfect! I can’t begin to say enough about how wonderful the staff at Silver Swan was!  They didn’t miss one detail and because of this, we were able to enjoy every second of our special day.  The setting speaks for itself but when you add a professional staff and incredible food, there is nothing more we could have hoped for.

Our beautiful daughters served as flower girls, Kaelyn pushed Lexi down the aisle in an antique pram with a sign that said “Here Comes Mommy.”  Of the 150 guests, 40 of them were Lauren’s family, including her parents, siblings, grandparents, and cousins; a true testament that we had successfully melded 3 families together.  My mom has always said that Lauren is a special angel who was looking down from above for someone to love and take care of Jordan and Kaelyn and somehow she was responsible for that penguin deciding to talk to the little cowgirl sitting on the curb.

And for the happily ever after?

“As a final footnote, we’re expecting baby #3 in July!”

Congratulations Casey and Jordan!!
