Eastern Shore Coastal Wedding Inspiration


Sep 23, 2020

This shoot was inspired by the work of Annapolis-based artist Kim Hovell to inspire the bride who loves the shore.  As a lifelong Maryland native, Kim’s strong connection to the Chesapeake Bay and her love of the eastern shore lifestyle provide the foundation for her artwork!

Kim Hovell is primarily known for her oyster paintings and we were inspired to create an editorial around her artwork for two reasons: we share Kim’s deep personal connection to the Chesapeake and we love how her series utilizes a fairly vibrant color palette while still conveying a sense of tranquility.

While searching for a venue, we couldn’t think of a better place to combine classic eastern shore beauty with a feeling of tranquility than the Inn at Perry Cabin.  We wanted to showcase its classic, effortless elegance. We pulled directly from Kim’s work and the eastern shore to create a palette of blues, whites, and champagne.”

For our tablescape, Kim custom made a hand-painted table runner featuring her oyster paintings.  We used understated but beautiful oyster-grey table linens, simple white china, and gold and wood flatware all to play off the organic and coastal-inspired artwork.  Our florals were a great illustration of mixing the organic elements of the artwork and the classical beauty of the venue – they combined classic white hydrangeas with loose organic blue florals and green vines.
