Car Keys Optional

Some of you may have seen the photo we posted on the Facebook page this week- the aftermath of a drunk driving accident in front of the State House, site of our rehearsal dinner. For those who missed that gem, here it is again: The fact that this happened totally supports why we were adamant about providing transportation to and

Historic St. Mary’s City Tour

For those of you who don’t know, St. Mary’s County is home to Maryland’s first capital city: St. Mary’s City, founded in 1634. Although the City itself was abandoned during the 1690s, much of it still remains underground. The space itself is now home to Historic St. Mary’s City, a living history and archaeology museum that is dedicated to the

YOU be the Photographer at our Wedding!

Not the official photographer. Stacey Windsor has that part covered, and based on our engagement photos, we’re in good hands. But, we do want you take pictures at our wedding! We’ve been to a few of these marriage parties, and every once in a while someone has had the great idea of putting disposable cameras at each table, leading, I’m

Love for the Ladies (buzzzz!)

I think this picture really says it all. I had an amazing time with the ladies at my bachelorette party this past weekend. Everything they planned showed how well they know me and what I like. And it was clear that the bridal party, especially Kate- master planner and matron of honor- worked really hard to schedule out all the

Behind the Music

Planning a wedding involves lots of details, not the least of which is choosing the right music to strike the desired tone for the festivities. This Friday, Terry and I will meet our wedding DJ to discuss the flow of the day and the special songs we have chosen to punctuate our wedding celebration.

Wedding Wine Tasting

In my extensive wedding-attendance experience, there are a few elements that I find to be critical components of the wedding experience. Good food and good music are critical. But one of the most important elements of any wedding are the beverage options. We have decided to keep this wedding a beer and wine event, and have tapped into our extensive

What defines a wedding?

Over the past year, I’ve had the great honor of standing beside not one, not two, but THREE of my best friends as they tied the knot. In May 2011, I was a bridesmaid in Shaun and Rachel Grahe’s wedding, my bridesman and honor attendant. A few months later, I rode out Hurricane Irene as maid of honor for my

See Anything That Suits You?

A few weeks ago, Bridesman Shaun Grahe came to visit, and he and I spent some quality man time crashing the mall and checking out potential wedding suits. I decided to go with suits over tuxes because I wanted something that may serve an actual purpose once the wedding is over, both for me and for the gentlemen who are
