About the blog
As full-time wedding professionals and former Maryland brides, we know what it takes to plan a wedding. Lots of inspiration, a practical budget, and multiple gallons of coffee. When we were still in the planning stages, we did what any hot-blooded bride would do - we went to Google. To Pinterest. To the magazine rack to load up on every issue of The Knot we could find.
And that’s a great start! But there were still pieces missing. It was hard to find real weddings at our chosen venues or even in a similar area. Most of the weddings we found on feature blogs were gorgeous but completely out of our budgets with vendors who didn’t work in our state. It was a bummer!
After working in the wedding industry ourselves (Britt’s a photographer, Sara’s a planner), it wasn’t long before we decided a site dedicated to Maryland weddings was long overdue. First and foremost, we wanted it to be helpful. Realistic. Beautiful. And we wanted to make sure our entire state was represented and not just the waterfront - we’ve got mountains! Beautiful cities and quaint small towns! Maryland has so much to offer and, maybe we are a little biased to the red, black, and gold, but we think it’s the most perfect place to get married and hope you do, too.

Meet the Founders
With previous addresses in Germantown, Silver Spring, Mt. Airy, and Hagerstown, this born and bred Maryland girl officially lives in Pennsylvania (gasp!), but keeps a close eye on the Mason-Dixon line a mile down the road. She photographs weddings all over Maryland but, if you twisted her arm, she’d tell you Frederick is her favorite place. When there’s no camera in her hand, you’ll find her at home with her strapping husband, two mischief-making daughters, and a bunch of chickens that she’s a little scared of.
Full Disclosure: She’s from Connecticut. (Gasp again!) But this lady traded her Yankee roots for a life on the Maryland shore with her husband, Mitch, and their dog, Mack. You could say she's halfway between the country and the country club. When she's not planning weddings for brides all over the state, you can find her channeling her inner HGTV host on the never-ending renovation project she calls home.
