Noah and Elizabeth are a “BBQ loving Southerner and vegetarian New Englander,” and they were married somewhere in between at this historical Maryland inn. Katie Stoops from Open Air Photography sent over some beautiful photos of this timeless wedding…

Elizabeth wore fresh lavender in her hair.

With more than 20 children in attendance, it was important to include them and make the wedding enjoyable for them, too. The innkeepers set up a kids’ station with kid-friendly foods and floor seating with pillows. They also had babysitters on site for the little ones and so parents could enjoy the evening stress free.

Favors were 5 dragees in canvas tea bags, with a tag that read “five wishes for a sweet life.”

Elizabeth shares this bit about the cake: “About 8 months before the wedding, I couldn’t think of the perfect wedding gift for Noah, until I was watching an episode of the Food Network’s Ace of Cakes. The idea hit me, and several friends and family kept this a guarded secret until the reception. Noah is a longtime Star Wars fan, so I auditioned all of the characters in my mind until I decided on the Millennium Falcon ship. He had no idea until we walked into the tent and were walking up to the cake.”

The fireworks were one of the couple’s favorite moments of the day. Since they love fireworks, they chose to fit it into their budget, and surprised all of their guests with a beautiful finale to the day.
