Enchanting Winter Wedding at Bear Trap Dunes

January 15, 2020

We love a winter wedding! There’s something about a bride in a white fur stole amidst a dormant landscape that really sets our souls on fire. And Samatha and Chris’  enchanting winter wedding at Bear Trap Dunes checks all of the boxes. The venue in Ocean View, Delaware, features the best of the Eastern Shore–winding paths among the sand dunes, wild native grasses, and the winter green only a golf course can provide. The bride, Samantha,  wore an intricately beaded dress with a long veil (wintery and bridal!)  and carried a gorgeous bouquet featuring king protea and wild thistle that complemented the landscape. Scroll down to see more of this enchanting winter wedding, captured by Sincerely, The Kitchens

From the staff at Bear Trap Dunes: Samantha and Christopher chose Bear Trap Dunes for their event space, and the sweeping golf course views and coastal-inspired clubhouse were a perfect backdrop for this pair. The bride and her bridesmaids were #squadgoals with gorgeous blush dresses with an added sparkle, and the men gave a soft and complimentary vibe to the bridesmaids with matching floral ties. This sweet couple is local to the Eastern Shore and celebrated with childhood friends and family.

Chelsea Johnson, Director of Catering & Events at Bear Trap Dunes, “The glow stick send off was a fun and memorable way to end the night! The wedding party never left the dance floor and our team was so delighted to help make their vision a reality!”
