Welcome back to Mary and Kevin’s Maryland-inspired wedding, hon! (Did you see their bright and modern wedding ceremony, too?) The locally inspired details continued on into their wedding reception captured by Tori Nefores Photography. With a “From Maryland, With Love” theme, Mary and Kevin rocked some Maryland gear with a flag tie for the groom, and crab earrings for the bride! And, Mary even had a Baltimore Orioles wedding garter! They also sent guests home with a taste of Maryland with their Utz chips wedding favors – so fun!
From Mary: One of my favorite details was our wedding cake topper which was made in England just for us which was a replica of myself, Kevin, and our dog (a Boston Terrier named Tank) along with an oriole bird and raven at the base. It was an exact replica of my wedding dress and accessories as well as my husband’s. It was perfect and looks exactly like mini-me and mini-Kevin. The perfect touch that will treasure forever as a keepsake!
Mary’s advice for other couples in the DC-area:
My main tip is do not have a long engagement. A wedding really is not that hard to plan. If you space things out and plan to do certain things by this date and these things by that date over each month you will be fine. By the time we hit the two month mark I was ready to get married then! Prioritize, make a list, and space things out over your engagement and you will be fine! Remember a wedding is only one day and you will be married for a lifetime.
