About Us

Our Mission

If areas can define people, then the Eastern Shore defines all of us. It may sound cliche in a fast-paced modern age to say so, but our love for where we live truly inspires us. The fact that so many couples choose the Eastern Shore as the backdrop of their wedding day, perfectly illustrates how lucky we are to live in a place of such natural beauty and peace. Our website showcases weddings alongside what we love most about the Shore–lush landscapes, kind people, and charming small towns (to name a few!). The ladies of MESW share a commitment to living up to this geographical gift. We want our couples to have the best wedding planning experience, and work hard to make it easy for you to connect with local creatives who can make your dream day a reality. Looking for a unique place for your engagement photos? Love the idea of a local sweet treat for your reception? Thinking of ways to feature the quintessential Maryland Blue Crab into your menu, but with a twist? These are the things that make us tick, and what we live daily! And as lovers of everything local, we’ve made it our business to make these things available for you to discover. 

What’s even better than helping our couples plan their big amazing day? Seeing everything come together, looking out at the lovely landscape and the happy bride and groom, and knowing that they’ve carefully woven their wedding daydreams with the experience of this special place.

Our Logo



Wondering how we came up with our MESW logo? Taking our inspiration from maritime signal flags used to communicate on the water, our flags, (while in the colors of our website), represent the letters “E” and “S”, or Eastern Shore. It’s another way we’re giving a serious nod to our region and it’s nautical traditions! 


Our Brides

Just wanted to say how much help your site has been in planning my July wedding in Oxford! I found my wedding photographer, cake designer, and hair and makeup artist here, as well as tons of inspiration for my pin boards. Thanks for helping make the process easier!

–Jennifer C.

I just want to say that this site is so beautiful and helpful! I’m looking into getting married in May (with the ceremony at my fiance’s family’s home and the reception at The Tidewater Inn). We haven’t finalized anything yet because planning is so overwhelming, but I’ve gotten so much inspiration from your site. We currently live in Frederick, MD, but my fiancé has spent every summer in Easton sailing and jet skiing the days away. He couldn’t imagine a wedding anywhere else! Thanks a lot! 

–Katie A.

I’m a new bride-to-be planning my June wedding! I’m currently living in Lexington, KY, but my fiancé and I have decided on an Eastern Shore wedding (my family lives in the DC area). I recently stumbled upon this website and just wanted to say that I couldn’t be happier! Sites like The Knot and WeddingWire have been helpful for initial searches but it’s always a bit more comforting knowing this is a local website! Excited to continue planning now that I’ve found this site! THANK YOU! 

–Melanie S.

The new site looks amazing! I read every email you send. Love your content and all of your inspiration. I found my wedding planner thanks to you guys last year. Keep up the amazing work! I love it!
