Emily & Russ Maryland Estate Wedding

Are you all ready for the one that’s sure to check all your dream wedding boxes?? Emily and Russ’s wedding is featured today on Festival Brides and you won’t wanna miss it!!

The theme of their wedding was woodsy boho which complimented the venue Walker’s Overlook perfectly. The day was total goals from start to finish and featured special elements like boho lanterns, mismatched bridesmaid dresses, antique rugs, fluffy florals, a champagne wall, draped linens, and not one but two BHLDN wedding gowns!!

Traveling to Maryland for Emily and Russ’s wedding was a definite highlight of my 2019 season. They are the sweetest most laid-back people and are so darn easy to celebrate. My favorite part of the day was their first look, when Emily surprised Russ by “icing” him with a Smirnoff Ice hidden behind her bouquet!! Watching these two crack up and enjoy each other’s company made my heart soar. I could go on and on about them and their wedding… but I’ll let Emily do the talking over on Festival Brides! Check out their wedding feature here!
