Chesapeake Bay Beach Club Bridal Tasting 2013

I was very honored when Erin Janes of the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club called and asked me to document the Bridal Tasting event they would be having.

I was really excited to do it not only because it was an awesome waterfront wedding and event venue, but also because a lot of Bride and Grooms dreamed to have their wedding here at the Beach Club.

It was quite a long day for the whole event, but I sure enjoyed it! All the staff at the Beach Club were really nice and helpful and sure made my job easier.

I sure wouldn’t mind doing it again next time! πŸ™‚

    Hello!
    I’m interested in the suspended rattan balls used in this decor. I’d like to do this for my sisters wedding and wondering if you can give any suggestions? Also- do you know what size was used for the rattan balls? The decor is beautiful!

    Thank you!
    Leslie

    Hi Leslie,
    Unfortunately I have no idea where to get these not to mention what size they were. I was there to take picture of the decorations. Perhaps you can contact Intrigue Design and Decor to ask your questions.
