Fall in Love with Florals and Furry Friends at The Tidewater Inn

September 27, 2023

Caroline and Peter’s Tidewater Inn wedding day is giving us the most awesome, autumn inspo for all the fabulous fall wedding trends. Bridesmaids donned in soft sage greens that perfectly complimented the flawless florals gathered with the bride and groom, along with a fantastically adorable dog of honor, to celebrate this dreamy and romantic day. The aisle was lined with wonderful white pumpkins as Caroline joined Peter at the alter and the reception was detailed with pastel pinks and romantic roses. Even with all the fabulous harvest season vibes, we think the desserts by Mill Stream Farm Bake Shop certainly take the cake!
