A Classic Wedding With a Vintage Twist at Morningside Inn in Frederick, Maryland
These middle school sweethearts had their classic, vintage-inspired wedding at Morningside Inn in Frederick, Maryland, where they attended prom back in the day—a location that brought back plenty of memories for another meaningful day. Surrounded by the countryside, this venue ended up having the perfect indoor-outdoor space that Haley Lewis (20 and a preschool teacher) and Jeremiah Lewis (21 and a car dealer) had envisioned for their classic nuptials. Yellow, white and gray with occasional pops of purple decorated the space through flower arrangements and wedding attire—from the yellow and white rose boutonnieres inside silver tubes to the floor-length heather gray bridesmaid dresses. The ceremony took place outside on the patio, where guests received white programs rimmed with bright yellow. Symbolic decorations accented the tabletops at the reception, such as birdcages filled with lemons that represented travels to Italy, or teacups that had belonged to Haley's great-grandmother. A beautiful white wedding cake with a light blue band around the bottom had flowers accenting the top, perched on a stand filled with a variety of cupcakes. Our favorite detail had to be Haley's beautiful wedding dress designed by Vera Wang, which flowed out into a full skirt with multiple layers of tulle. "I wanted a dress fit for a princess without looking like a cupcake," Haley says. "My dress was the second one I tried on, and I knew immediately it was perfect for me."
