There’s nothing like a stunning waterfront setting for a Jewish wedding – and we love how Natalie, a brand strategist, and Jon, who works in clinical mental health counselling, let the natural beauty of the water and greenery surrounding them take center stage on their big day.
Taking cues from their venue, the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club, Natalie and Jon opted for a neutral color palette to let the natural splendor pop – with the exception of some pops of Natalie’s favorite color, purple. They also incorporated the colors of the ocean and trees that surrounded them into their beautiful custom ketubah by Britt Yudell of Smashing The Glass Recommended Vendor BRITColors.
In Natalie and Jon’s words, “We were looking to get a design that was a reflection of our relationship thus far, and represented the commitment we were making to each other going forward. Early in the relationship, Jon bought two similar pendants that we each kept when we were apart. We wanted that to be captured in our a ketubah which Britt absolutely captured perfectly.” Don’t miss it in the wonderful pics by Stephanie Dee!

How we Met
Natalie, the bride and Jon, the groom: We met at Penn State University! We were just acquaintances at the time through mutual friends. We reconnected years later when Natalie came back to the Washington, D.C. area from New Orleans and Jon moved to the Washington, D.C. area to work at American University.
