Memorable Great Oak Manor Brunch Wedding

Most of the brides & grooms that come our way have a love and knack for DIY and design. From our first call with Sara, we knew she would be one of those gems we would talk about for years to come.

Sara hand drew her invitations along with all the other paper elements for their wedding day. The centerpieces consisted of a mixture of antique glasses + bottles that Sara and her mother either previously owned or scouted. To put the icing on the cake (literally), her and her mother made their wedding cake from scratch the day before the big day! We can’t forget to mention her father who makes wine on the side, which bottled and partnered with a label designed by the one-and-only bride, was the perfect guest favor. The groom, Luke, did not contribute to the design but I will have to say that during the reception we got to listen to one of his rap songs and it sure was impressive!

Taking place at one of our favorite venues on the Eastern Shore, Great Oak Manor, we arrived on Wednesday to get the rentals checked off and the tent put up! As the week continued we felt just like a part of their family by the brunch wedding Saturday morning! With the talents of the below vendors matched with a perfect Eastern Shore day, it was a wedding to remember!

A few months later I asked Sara to draw me in the style she had for her wedding invitations and we love it! You can see it below and make sure to check out her page on Etsy, SVQdesigns.
