Real Inspiration: Kristine & Seth

Kristine and Seth currently reside in Brooklyn, NY.  However, they returned to Kristine's hometown, Havre de Grace, MD for their nuptials.  Havre de Grace is a quaint town, established in the 1780s, and steeped in history.  The town's unique location at the mouth of the Susquehanna river and the head of the Chesapeake Bay make it a perfect backdrop for a wedding! 

Kristine's photographer, Tara Parekh, snapped this amazing shot just as a rain cloud passed over head.

Kristine and Seth chose the Vandiver Inn for their wedding ceremony and reception.  The Vandiver has 17 guest rooms, including the Rodgers Suite, perfect for newlyweds!  Many of Kristine and Seth's guests were able to stay at the Vandiver and awoke to have brunch together the day after the wedding.

Both of Kristine's parents walked her down the aisle.  The bride and groom chose to have a good friend  officiate the ceremony.  And two of their friends composed and played the ceremonial music!

Their ceremony was humanistic and very personal because they wrote the nuptials and vows themselves.  The traditionally Jewish "breaking of the glass," which has many meanings, was a nod to Seth's upbringing.

Kristine's bouquet was a creation of Amanda's Florist.  The rest of the flowers were arranged by Kristine's mother and a family friend.  Very talented ladies!

Kristine's dress is from Watters Bridal collection and features a baby blue sash.  Love the splash of color mirrored in the flowers!  Watters can be found at Betsy Robinson's Bridal in Pikesville, MD.

The wedding cake, made by Rita's, featured vines with fresh flowers arranged by a family friend.


The bride and groom had their own table with substantial upholstered chairs.  On the table sat a photograph of Seth's deceased maternal grandparents, another personal touch.

Congratulations Kristine and Seth!
