A beautiful Baltimore area wedding on the blog this morning. Meghan & Jeremy‘s simply stunning wedding is the perfect example of how understated, handmade details can still be full of beauty. You will love Meghan’s unique, goddess-like dress, the lovely lavender bouquets, and a TON of details from the bride herself about why those chose to have the type of wedding they did, completely handmade & in the woods of Baltimore!
Thanks to Amie Hauck Photography for sharing the beautiful images!
Meet Jeremy & Meghan:
Jeremy and I met in college. We didn’t actually like each other and argued in and out of class all the time. In retrospect, our capacity for finding things to argue about looked a lot like chemistry, and when we did finally get together none of our friends were surprised. After graduating, we both moved to Annapolis, Maryland, where we reconnected and immediately began dating. We knew pretty quickly that we felt seriously about each other and talked about getting married (and picked out rings) months before we became formally engaged over a long weekend in another historic little town, Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.
Meghan tells us how they started their wedding planning, reviewing what was important to them, and what kind of wedding they wanted to have:
When we started thinking about what we wanted the wedding to be like, we knew it was important to us to have our friends and family there with us to celebrate. Neither of us is very traditional, however, so we rethought many of the wedding standards, wanting to keep costs down, keep things simple, and remember that the day is about celebrating our marriage.
It was also very important to us that our guests enjoy themselves. To keep organized but not have things get totally taken over by the craziness of theknot-style to do lists, we listed everything that really mattered to us in a spreadsheet to track when things needed to be done, when they did get done, and actual and estimated costs. Ultimately, we wanted to keep things easy and low-stress.
I love Meghan’s simple dried lavender bouquet. Like really love it.
Dried lavender, ribbons & a beautiful vintage brooch – bam, DIY bouquet made by Meghan’s sister:
She made my bouquet out of leftover dried lavender and ribbon and attached a brooch that belongs to our elderly grandmother, who was unable to travel to Maryland for the celebration.
How dreamy are these portraits in the woods? Gives them almost an ethereal, nymph-like aura
