A Nautical Waterfront Wedding at Osprey Point Inn in Rock Hall, Maryland

College sweethearts Megan Griffith (29 and a sales director) and Brian Werrell (30 and a civil engineer) said “I do” during a waterfront ceremony at Osprey Point Inn in Rock Hall, Maryland, and celebrated with dinner and dancing on the inn’s property. A classic palette of navy and white and navigational details, such as maps, lanterns and coordinates brought their nautical wedding to life. Personal decor touches included wedding photographs of family members, “guest book” cornhole boards and a pickle bar (the groom’s favorite) during cocktail hour. Megan and Brian’s ceremony took place along the inn’s waterfront with the marina and water as the backdrop. A friend played acoustic guitar for the ceremony and even wrote the processional and recessional songs. “We wrote our own vows, which was one of the most meaningful parts of the day,” Megan says. Another special moment in the ceremony was when Megan’s and Brian’s mothers tied fisherman’s knots, symbolizing the union of both families. After cocktail hour guests were escorted to a sailcloth tent for dinner and dancing. A mix of round and long wooden farm tables were clad in white tablecloths or navy-and-white-striped runners and adorned with vintage brass vases, lanterns and candleholders. Tables were embellished with white floral arrangements and garlands trailing down the wooden farm tables. In lieu of numbers tables were labeled with street names and navigational coordinates. The 10-piece band was the focal point of the celebration, and Brian even joined in for an impromptu performance. “He loves to entertain a crowd,” Megan says of later crowd surfing with her new husband. —Marissa Hermanson
