Real SoMd Wedding: Timeless Elegance on the Water

Amy and Jake had a clear vision for their Oct. 19, 2013, wedding day: Nothing trendy, and nothing that would look dated when they flipped through their wedding pictures years later. They chose a classic color scheme of black and ivory, and they used that color palette from their ceremony through their reception. All of the flowers in bouquets and arrangements were white: Hydrangeas, mini calla lilies, and roses. The bridesmaids wore long, black gowns, and the flower girls’ white dresses were accented by black sashes. Amy’s bouquet included tributes to two people special to her: Her late Meemaw and Pappaw.

At the reception, ivory cloths covered the tables and chairs with a black sash on the chairs. Simple flower arrangements and votive candles were in the center of each table. They set the lights low in Swan Point Yacht and Country Club’s reception room so that the glow of the candles lit the room.
