With free-spirited style, this couple weds on a glorious sunshiny day in Easton, Maryland, as captured in these images by EyeWonder Photography. Lobster and crab shell mallets and Old Bay seasoning set the tone for a spicy, fun day; the bride is all elegance in a draped gown with gold-beaded waistband, her hands lovely with a white manicure. Her maids wear short, poufy dresses in sea-blue, and elegant high-heeled sandals. The groom is faultlessly turned out in French cuffs with jeweled links and a debonair white-on-white four-in-hand tie. A very junior guest is almost as spiffy as the bridal pair, in a sweet baby outfit with “vest” and “tie” included! A sweet “reveal” under spreading shade trees precedes the invitation by an attendant, with program in hand, to the site in dappled sunlight.
A few tears are shed by parents as the father of the bride hands her to her husband-to-be. In a special part of the ceremony, a cord loops around the couple’s joined hands, signifying the “binding” of their vows and the permanency of their commitment and bond to each other. Then, following the ring exchange, they pause for a few thoughtful photos in the wild grasses and silhouetted in the afternoon sun. The reception carries forward the seaworthy “cord” theme in a motif of turquoise and white, in an open-air celebration at water’s edge under a massive tent. Guests enjoy cake “shots,” refreshing beverages, and lots of laughter and fun on the dance floor, as the sun sets and the candles glow in the twilight — a special day, brought to life in images from EyeWonder.
