Tidewater Inn Wedding: Erin + Dan

I sure had fun doing Erin and Dan’s engagement session in Washington DC, but what got me more excited was knowing that I would be photographing their wedding! On top of that, I was also excited knowing that their wedding would be at The Tidewater Inn, the historic and elegant venue in Easton, Maryland!

So why did they choose this beautiful venue? Erin told me, in her own words: “We chose the Tidewater because we knew we wanted to do a winter wedding on the Eastern Shore and the Tidewater was perfect for this. We were able to have the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception in the same building (but different spaces) and have all our friends and family stay in the hotel. We loved the idea that our guests would not need to get back in their cars once they arrived and still be able to get out and shop, explore the town, etc. The Tidewater really was like renting a big house for the weekend with all our family and friends – it was the perfect place! ”

After exchanging card and read notes from each other, Erin and Dan decided to do a first glance. 🙂

    Hi There

    Great set of images, made a really good job of a less than inspiring background! I really liked the monochrome image of the couple on the staircase
