Jeremey is a seasoned veteran of the US Coast Guard, while Rebecca is a native of Calvert County Maryland. For their wedding day, they knew that they wanted a destination wedding- without actually having to travel to far- which Saint Micheals was the perfect fit!
It is a bayside resort town frozen in time. The streets are lined with quaint victorian houses converted into bed and breakfasts, and bikes are the primary mode of transportation. The downtown is full of eateries, ice cream shops, and plenty of local shops you could browse for hours. Time really moves at a different pace here. Saint Michals may be only an hour and a half from Washington DC- but it truly feels like you have been transported to a place far far away.
They were spending their elopement weekend in Saint Micheals, the highlight of which was their elopment aboard the yacht Selina II.
The Selina II is a vintage sailboat- which was constructed in 1926 for the Hird’s family. Since then, it has been passed down through generations of the Hird Family. They now ofter charter cruises onboard in the summer months
Their ceremony was officiated by the wonderful Bonnie of Beginnings and Endings- who I also had the Privilege of working with at this Perry Cabin Elopement last fall!
We stated out are Harbor Inn. After cruising past the Historic waterfront, we headed out to the center of the Miles river for their ceremony. It was a perfect spring day. There was not a cloud in the sky. The water was smooth as glass- propelled by the massive canvas sail.
