It’s like non-stop raining up here in NE DC (and I’d imagine everywhere around the Beltway), but it’s hard to get too upset about it because it FINALLY feels like fall. I am mostly happy sitting here in my scarf, hand-knit booties, and oversized cardigan. And to make it even more appropriate, we are sharing a quintessential Fall Maryland wedding thanks to Petruzzo Photography. Jennifer & Shannon decided to get into the fall spirit with a gorgeous outdoor ceremony right outside the farm and dressed their wedding party in deep burgundy. I also love that Jennifer kept her specs on – brides in glasses rule.
This wedding also included a good amount of DIY, hand-made details. The bride made her own jewelry, her family sewed personalized details into her dress, and the bride’s mom made all the floral arrangements! Check out all the beautiful and fall wedding details below!

Every couple cherishes their wedding day, but Jennifer and Shannon’s autumn wedding in Brookeville, Md. was made all the more special by incredible hand-fashioned details.
Jennifer’s aunt sewed crystals, family heirlooms from a great great great aunt, onto her bridal gown, which Jennifer found at TLC Bridal Boutique. Jennifer made the beautiful jewelry worn by herself, her bridesmaids and her daughter.
Her mother crafted the bouquets for Jennifer and her maids — bright roses, which complimented the rich purple color theme — as well as the men’s boutonnieres and the reception centerpieces.

Jennifer and Shannon chose the Inn at Brookeville Farms for the wedding and reception venue, which allowed the couple to wed outdoors and then entertain guests in a cozy, fire-lit space for dining and dancing. Brookeville Farms also provided an exquisite backdrop for some beautiful rustic shots of the bride, groom and their wedding party outdoors.
The marble cake remains the best cake either Jennifer or Shannon have ever eaten, and was baked and designed by Custom Cake Designs — a sweet farewell to what they describe as a perfect day. Wedding guests added their thumbprints to a family tree drawn by the bride to underscore the joining of families, which the couple framed and cherishes deeply.
Congratulations Jennifer & Shannon! Thank you for sharing your beautiful Brookeville Farms wedding with us! A special thanks again to Petruzzo Photography for sharing this Maryland wedding feature with us via Two Bright Lights!
