Welcome back for part two of Tricia and Reginald’s Maryland wedding by the bay from jan michele photography (You can check out their ceremony here!). Their beach inspiration meets purple palette continued into their reception, with starfish turned place cards and beautiful purple flowers, from the centerpieces to the cake. The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club was the ideal venue for a theme as such, and the festivities were quickly underway!
From Tricia: When we found our reception site, we knew instantly this is where we wanted to celebrate our marriage with our family and friends. The reception site and its location is what helped inspire our wedding theme, and all the special details that helped make our wedding so special just fell into place.
Tricia’s advice to other DC-area couples:
Start planning early and take your time to choose the things that are most important to you. If you want to splurge in certain areas, that’s perfectly fine, just find other areas of your wedding to cut back on so that you don’t go over budget. Ask for help when you need it, those closest to you will be more than willing to lend a hand. Most importantly, wedding planning is supposed to be fun, don’t let it take over the excitement of your wedding day!
