ac-001when i met with audrey + chris earlier this spring on the banks of the choptank river, i couldn’t help but be excited for their big day! these two are so laid back, and so much fun to be around, plus their enthusiasm for their wedding was contagious. both of them are advocates for environmental sustainability, and this was evident in all aspects of their big day from their gorgeous location on the river, custom centerpieces featuring wildlife in the area, natural local decor, and one of my favorite details: handmade paper bowties for the groomsmen. even dog of honor, gaius, wore one! one other reason i love this couple is their love of craft beer, which was also woven into their day through details like hops for boutonnieres, and Nobel Rot for The Blessing Over Wine during their beautiful ceremony. so, on this craft beer note: the groom’s brother brewed a special beer for their wedding – choptank kolsch – that everyone was raving about! and of course, guests could tap that beer into their custom made pint glasses along with several others beers by Dogfish Head Brewery from the beer bar made by the groom’s sister! the fact that they happily referred to their cocktail hour as ‘happy hour’ made me love this couple even more. in addition to the great brews, they set up yard games for guests to play – and of course these two got in on the mix! all during the day from portraits to their sparkler send off, audrey + chris were just so at ease and simply having the best time together and with their loved ones. it was so clear for me to see why the chorus from family and friends that night was that they were perfect for each other. i am so, so happy for you two and wish you all the best on your adventures in europe and a lifetime of happiness together! xo! raise a glass to their fabulous vendors:
