Annapolis rustic wedding venue

Natural & Elegant Sherwood Forest Wedding

Becca and Cassin were so excited to come back to their hometown to get married. Cassin grew up “in the forest” and Becca just across the Severn River in St. Margret’s. Becca, an event planner by trade, had her vision from the start and with the help of her Navy wife and planner extraordinaire Mom, these two ladies put together an amazingly stunning day that was just what Becca had envisioned! Our groom Cassin was happy to share his childhood stomping grounds with his beautiful bride’s family and friends as well as his and her friends that were able to make the trip out to Annapolis to enjoy this picturesque warm September day. We were so honored to help bring the day of details together so this planner extraordinaire and her handsome hubby & families could relax and truly enjoy the day without a worry!

The Brides family got ready at a house in Sherwood that was the perfect relaxing backdrop and start to the bride’s day. They then made their way via golf cart (of course!) to the ceremony which was held in Stewart Hall. With the help of Event Dynamics, beautiful greenery was hung from the existing chandeliers and an elegant ivory pipe and drape backdrop was created for a clean look for the ceremony. The altar was complimented by real trees that the mother of the bride brought & will plant at her house following the wedding! Great thinking, Diane! This Navy mom definitely knows a thing or two about planning :)

The reception for 200 filled the large clubhouse perfectly with four long tables flanking each side of the dance floor. The bride and groom thoughtfully assigned seats to each place setting with individual succulent plants so each guest did not have to wander along a long table to find their seat. The decor was simple yet elegant - all white with lush greenery down the middle and a touch of light blue peeking out of the water glass at each setting.

Guests enjoyed a choice of three delicious entrees from Atlantic Catering and then danced the night away with a great DJ from Brian George Entertainment. The couple had a rock star departure by running though cell phone flashlights and jumping into a thoughtfully decorated “get away cart” by the brother & sister of the bride!
