Erin & Danny in Chestertown, Maryland

“I like to describe our wedding as eclectic, vintage and laid-back,” bride Erin says of her wedding to Danny. “I didn’t want anything too matchy-matchy, but I also wanted it to be all pulled-together.” A prominently green palette accented with bright flowers and lace achieved the easygoing vibe.
