Wedding at The Inn at Perry Cabin

No “Wedding Crashers” at this wedding at the Inn at Perry Cabin.

Upon learning that I would be doing a wedding at the Inn at Perry Cabin on the Eastern Shore, all of the stories about the celebrities who have stayed there and the infamous “Wedding Crashers” movie that was partially filmed there began pouring in. While I have to admit, I was pretty excited about seeing the property, I was more concerned about the imminent threat of the rain since we were planning for an outside wedding and cocktail reception.

The wonderful wedding weekend began with a cozy dinner at the Inn at Perry Cabin for the bridal party and families and a crab feast for all other guests in attendance at the St. Michael’s Crab and Steak House. Shuttles were provided to ensure guests would have transportation from the Inn to the restaurant and back. A wonderful evening was had by all.

Wedding day morning was spent glued to the Weather Channel in order to make a decision about whether to hold the wedding ceremony and cocktail reception outside or not. The final decision was made to have Liz and Nick’s wedding outside overlooking the calm waters of the Miles River. The decision was a good one because the rain held off until the cocktail reception concluded and all guests were moved into the dinner/dancing tent for the evening’s festivities.

Check out the fabulous shades of pink and red throughout the wedding. Love the pink flowers against the bridesmaids' fuchsia dresses. The fuchsia linens looked so fabulous on the back lawn--love that pop of color. Even the paper lanterns in the tent were pink! I also love the detail of the "Mr." and "Mrs." heart-shaped pillows hanging from the bride's and groom's chairs. So cute!

A fabulous shot of the famous waterfront inn and the sharp-looking groomsmen processing down the aisle!

Liz and Nick wanted their guests to have as much fun as possible so when the dinner and dancing concluded at 10pm, all guests were led into the inn for an after-party including mini burgers, fries and great music.

It would not have been possible to throw such a wonderful event without the fabulous team that I had surrounding me. Grace from Engaging Affairs was my right-hand woman throughout the wedding, and Joanna Mumford at the Inn at Perry Cabin was there to assist us with any questions or needs we had on-site regarding the property. The beautiful pink-on-pink flowers were created by Edge Floral Event Designers, a division of Plants Etc. The party was kept alive all night by the sounds of The Source from Elan Artists. All of the special moments were captured by Gary of Rodney Bailey and Associates. Thanks for the great images!
