Sam and Lexi met through mutual friends at a concert and the rest was history. Due to their appreciation of art, aside from the act of being married, they felt the aesthetics of the day were the most important to them. With a weather scare of pouring rain the day before their wedding, fortunately, their day was sunny and filled with white fluffy clouds. Which created the perfect setting for their vineyard first glance shoot.
Sam and Lexi fell in love with the first venue they toured, Stone Manor Country Club in Middletown, Maryland. The location was a divine old stone bed and breakfast, whose grounds held a vineyard, a pond, a willow tree, old barns and small stone buildings, fitting for their vision and offering many photograph opportunities.
Something unique they choose to do with their reception tables was that each table centerpiece was a unique object belonging to the Groom, Bride or one of their families. Lexi tells us “the object at the table held significance to at least one person that was there. For example, the bridal party table held tin can props that Sam & I used in our engagement photo session, my grandparents table held my great grandfather's bird watching binoculars. The centerpiece was then incorporated onto each persons place card which I hand drew & made.”
The happy couple wanted to look at their wedding day and see that it was a reflection of themselves. They filled the day with things they enjoy as a couple from record shopping and playing music to bike rides and reading and writing. Lexi says "We wanted to showcase all the things we love, even if that meant combining bicycles with boat shoes!"
Lexi & Sam chose the City Life Invitation design for their wedding stationery.
