Julia and Hunter met back when they were teenagers summering at the Outer Banks. They knew their love was special and it lasted long distance when Hunter went back home to Southern Virginia and Julia went back to Maryland. Over time their relationship blossomed further and went an even greater distance when Hunter enlisted in the army and served our country overseas. When Hunter returned stateside, he set to proposing to his waiting love and they began planning their Maryland wedding ceremony and reception immediately. Since Hunter was a veteran and their wedding was taking place Memorial Day weekend, they wanted to include an homage to the United States without being cheesy. We love their light use of a red, white, and navy color scheme which was reflected in the bridal party attire, as well as their decor. The couple shared that during a moment of silence for all those who served that was held during dinner, you could feel the love and pride in everyone’s hearts. To pay homage to the start of their love story, votive candles from OBX acted as their wedding favors and their respective home states on the corn hole boards. We love such small personal touches in a wedding story, and thank you to their planning team at Rose Gold Events for sharing their special Woodlawn Manor wedding with us today!
