Welcome to Bayside Bride! Whether you found us through Facebook, Twitter, word of mouth or random curiosity, we are so excited that you decided to drop by! Today marks the beginning of a project that we have been culminating for the past few weeks and months! It has taken a lot of time, heart, and energy to make our vision a reality – and we are so grateful to every single person who has contributed thus far!
Krista and Natalie, Bayside Bride’s founders and co-editors, were surprised when they learned that Annapolis was lacking a comprehensive wedding guide. Other cities, such as Baltimore, Washington, and Philadelphia are filled with fantastic wedding blogs that help local brides to design their weddings – but Annapolis was still lacking this resource. With the number of weddings that take place in Annapolis and along the Chesapeake Bay, creating Bayside Bride was an absolute necessity.
In addition to the quantity of weddings in this area, Annapolis weddings are also known for having a unique nautical and small-town charm! In addition, the local wedding vendors in this area are truly some of the most creative and talented in the entire industry. Our hope is to create a collective meeting place between local brides and the professionals who can make their dreams a reality.
Over the next month, we will be hosting a variety of giveaways – the first of which we will announce tomorrow! We will also be posting images from our styled photo session later on this afternoon, including a behind the scenes video of the shoot in action! A typical month at Bayside Bride will be filled with inspiration from real weddings and engagements, do-it-yourself ideas, vendor highlights, styled photo-shoots, real bridal questions answered by Annapolis-area experts, and so much more! There is plenty of room for involvement, whether you are a bride to be, wedding vendor, or local enthusiast!
