Burgundy & Gold Autumn Estate Wedding in Relay, MD

Burgundy Gold Green Autumn Estate Wedding Relay MD Marryland Weddings_1415.jpg

From the planner:

This estate wedding is not only gorgeous, it is filled with family history and a love story over 80 years in the making! Megan and Brandon felt destined to be married and connect their two families. Both of their grandparents have been friends for years. They actually lived in the same house (two separate apartments) when they were first married! The families grew up together in the same town of Relay, MD. 

The wedding was held on Megan's family estate and she is the 7th generation to own the home. The house was purchased in the early 1800's by Megan's fourth great grandfather. The property was confiscated by the U.S. Army to build Fort Dix and protect the Thomas Viaduct from the Confederate Army. After the war was over, the house was returned to her family and it has been passed down from generation to generation. This wedding was filled with personal details such as using old german siding from the house to create the cross they were married under and the seating chart, showcasing generations of family photos, and using old vintage furniture as displays. It was a gorgeous October day and every part of their wedding showcased the property, the season, and their love story perfectly!
