Amanda and Robert were married at the Inn at Michell House in Chestertown, Md. on October 12. The bride wore a strapless a-line wedding gown with a ruched bodice and lace skirt, accessorized with her strawberry blonde hair down in loose curls and cluster pearl earrings, while the groom wore a brown suit, accessorized with a tie and satin-wrapped boutonniere. Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched jewel toned chiffon dresses in different shades of burgundy, blush and brown and carried bouquets of dahlias, mums, lisianthus, and seeded eucalyptus. “We loved that our flowers were locally sourced and smelled amazing with herbs mixed in,” Amanda said. Guests were greeted with a perfectly-landscaped lawn overlooking the Stoneybrooke pond as they arrived for the ceremony. “We loved the rustic feel of the historic country bed and breakfast,” she said. “We were terrified of the rain. With the weather forecast, everything pointed towards us being married under a tent rather than in front of a beautiful pond in the country setting we had imagined. But the rain held out [for the vows]. . . ten minutes following the ceremony the sky opened up and there was a rain shower, but it was okay because then we had a perfect rainbow!” During the reception, escort cards were hung on vintage shutters, tables were numbered on chalkboards, and dinner was served a la buffet, including pulled pork and brisket, smoked chicken, caesar salad, potatoes au gratin, asparagus, and ratatouille. “And the candy buffet was a hit!” she said. The newlyweds’ best advice? “Have fun!” Amanda said. “You will spend a year planning for this one day, and some things may go wrong, but that won’t keep you from having the best day of your life.”

Q & A with the Bride: 

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The tall ceilings! St. Marys of the Woods’ O’Shaughnessy Hall is absolutely gorgeous. I always wanted tall ceiling at my wedding venue and this was perfect touch.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Peonies: I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to get them or not, and a couple days before the wedding, we were able to get them for the arrangements!

2. Favors: My mom and I made all of the jam and covered and tied the tags on. I’m not a super creative person, and I was glad that I was able to do something that everyone loved!

3. Stationary: I loved all of the stationary that Pink Poppy Ink did for the wedding. From the invitations to menus, programs and even the seating sign! 

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding you can’t stop thinking about.

The moment we were announced husband and wife, and we walked down the aisle together. After the ceremony, we got to spend a few minutes together alone. It was so amazing to just be together since the day is so hectic leading up to that point! Plus, my dad doing a kick line to the beach boys at the reception!
