Brittany Pierce (25 and a medical student) and Seth Hipkins (25 and a mechanical engineer) met in history class at Middletown High School in Maryland. They were close friends until Seth asked Brittany out at an Orioles game, and they've been together ever since. After Brittany's first year in medical school, the couple took a trip to New York City. It was Sunday at midnight when the couple were meandering around a nearly empty Rockefeller Plaza that Seth got down on one knee and proposed to Brittany. She was able to say yes just in time before the police shut down the Plaza. For their wedding, Brittany and Seth wanted to keep things laid back without losing the formalities of matrimony. They chose to say their vows at Walker's Overlook in Walkersville, MD, a farmhouse that was close to their hometown and that provided the rustic, outdoor charm they were going for. For their color palette, Brittany and Seth chose a simple blush and champagne color combination. "I wanted the colors to be neutral and to blend with the beautiful scenery at Walker's Overlook," says Brittany. The groomsmen wore formal black tuxedos by Vera Wang while the bridesmaids wore floor length blush dresses in the styles of their choosing by Jane Wang. The bride wore a vintage, lace sheath dress with a champagne slip and a low-cut back from Allure Bridals. The scenic ceremony was held outdoors at dusk under a giant oak tree. The reception was held in an open-air tent with votive candles strung from the ceiling. The decor seemed effortless, with mismatched vases as centerpieces and DIY s'more kits as favors and a dessert table of cookies and milk provided by the couple's family and friends. The overall effect was both laid-back and classy, playful and romantic.

The wedding invitations were designed by Birch and River via Etsy and printed on walnut wood veneer by Cards of Wood, a company based out of Michigan.

The table numbers for Brittany and Seth's wedding were displayed on green wine bottles. On each table, there were pictures of the couple at the age of the corresponding table number.
Designed by Candlelight Floral Designs in Middletown, MD, the floral arrangements consisted of roses, freesias, hydrangeas, eucalyptus and dusty miller. "We didn't want anything to look too staged, so we scattered votive candles and different size vases," says Brittany.
Brittany and Seth's florist provided votive candles that could be hung from the tent's canopy, which added a romantic touch.
"We gave our guests individually wrapped s'mores packages as favors, and they were able to roast the s'mores over an outdoor fire pit on the patio at the reception," says Brittany.
Since Brittany and Seth aren't fans of cake, their friends and family pitched in to bake cookies for their cookies and milk dessert table spread. "It was great because we both love cookies, and it was nice to have a homemade touch," says Brittany.
