Color Splash on the Eastern Shore


Saturday was a beautiful day in Cambridge at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay for Angela and Trey's Wedding. The ceremony was held on the Manor Lawn with amazing views of the Choptank River. Hotel guests watched from their balconies as the bride and groom said their vows.

The flowers in shades of pink, orange, and green added the perfect punch to the green grass and crisp white chairs. Rennie from Simply Beautiful Flowers also draped the backs of the ceremony chairs in garland. Guests stayed cool inside the hotel until the magic moment. Once seated, they stayed cool with brightly colored orange and pink parasols and fans. Angela and Trey were married by a cousin of Trey's while facing a large oak tree.

After shouts of congratulations, the guests walked over to the cocktail hour where they were treated to sangria and madra's to perfectly match our color story.

You may be wondering about the cake featured at the top left of the photo collage. Angela and Trey own GunPowder Bison, a bison farm in Monkton, Maryland. Since bison (or buffalo) are a huge part of their lives they chose to have one of the not-so-friendly creatures immortalized in a grooms cake by Charm City Cakes. The grooms cake was the highlight of the rehearsal dinner held at Suicide Bridge Restaurant on Friday the 13th. Guests "risked their lives" to attend the dinner and were treated to a paddle boat cruise back to the Hyatt at the end of the evening.

Now, back to the wedding. Cocktail hour ended and guests made the journey over to the ballroom on a leisurely stroll around the resort led by the violinist. They were greeted in the ballroom by the sounds of The Source, who kept everyone on the dance floor all evening. The father of the groom loved them so much - he asked them to stay another hour!

Guests were treated to a variety of stations for dinner - the most popular being the bison carving station from the couple's farm. The night ended sweetly with cake from Bay Country Bakery. The entire day was captured by David Michele Photography. We will post their images soon.

Congratulations Angela and Trey!
