Neutral and Elegant Wedding Inspiration at Whitehall in Annapolis, MD

This wedding inspiration photoshoot was inspired by a simple, organic and neutral elegance that would beautifully complement the gorgeous fields of Whitehall, a historic mansion in Annapolis, Maryland, built in the 1700s and now available for luxury weddings and events. We wanted to showcase an understated romantic and soft look that would resonate well with a couple who would appreciate an effortless yet elevated styling for their event. The spectacular combination of the great outdoors, the bay in the background and a color palette consistent of ivories, greens and greys provide a fresh and calm experience for the guests’ senses.

For this project, we were privileged enough to team up with incredibly talented vendors, whose contributions were masterfully captured by photographer Rachel May. We hope that you enjoy this images, as much as enjoyed planning and designing away!
