March 29, 2024

Enter the captivating world of Madeline and Alan, where love blossoms against the scenic backdrop of the Eastern Shore. This radiant couple celebrated their deep connection at a waterfront venue echoing with shared history. The festivities included a heartwarming rehearsal dinner on the Tred Avon Yacht River, a carefully chosen location reflecting their independent roots and Eastern Shore ties. This is truly an Eastern Shore Wedding from our dreams!

From the Planner:

Nestled in the heart of the Eastern Shore’s idyllic beauty, Madeline and Alan’s wedding on October 14th, 2023, served as a radiant celebration of their profound connection to this gorgeous waterfront venue. 

The journey began with a heartwarming rehearsal dinner at the Tred Avon Yacht Club, where close friends and family gathered to celebrate the union of Alan and Madeline, both with independent roots and meaningful connection to the club. The location was carefully selected to honor the couple’s cherished memories and their shared passion for the Eastern Shore. Photographer, Taylor Hall, was able to steal the couple away during golden hour; something we knew we wouldn’t have the next day with the forecast calling for rain the majority of the day and got the most enchanting shots. 

As the big day dawned, it seemed Mother Nature had other plans. Rain graced the occasion. As plan A went to B to C, it only added to the uniqueness of Madeline and Alan’s wedding story. The boat transfers aboard the Highlander, the first vessel crafted by the groom’s family business, Campbell’s Boat Yards, were regrettably canceled due to the weather. However, the couple’s spirits remained undamped, a reflection of their unwavering commitment to one another. Madeline’s beautiful florals were going to steal the show rain or shine. 

Madeline and Alan’s wedding was not just a union of two souls; it was a celebration of their shared history, passions, and the enduring beauty of the Eastern Shore. Their love shone through the storm clouds, reminding us all that love can weather any storm.
