Two weeks ago GPA had a wonderful kick off to our wedding season in St. Michaels with an amazing couple!  I met Michelle + Marshall the day before their wedding for the rehearsal dinner at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.  The weathered boathouse and the secured vessels gave an overall serene feel on the glassy water.  Inside, the Edison lights and rustic ambiance made me feel like I had stepped back in time.  Guests arrived from the church with the lovely vibes of Chris Dunn’s classical guitar playing in the background.  The Belmond Inn at Perry Cabin prepared a delicious meal and Michelle + Marshall decided to incorporate a little Eastern Shore heritage with Smith Island cakes for dessert!  The boathouse was bustling and filled with energy as family and friends met and celebrated Michelle + Marshall.  I could tell that their wedding the very next day was going to be filled with so much love and laughter.  Julianne + Mindy from SOIREE. and Amaryllis Event Design helped make the evening beautiful!

Stay tuned to the blog tomorrow to see Michelle + Marshall’s wedding day! :)
