Jenny & Mike

On a warm November day, Jenny and Mike exchanged vows on the private Gibson Island at the Gibson Island Club. From charming details to heartfelt moments, this wedding was a true celebration of love and friendship. We are so grateful that we were a part of their wedding!

What made this wedding truly special was the heartwarming collaboration between Jenny and her mom in planning every detail. Her mom’s unwavering support and dedication to bringing the couple’s vision to life made this day even more meaningful. Initially hired for wedding day coordination, our team at Elizabeth Giles Events soon became an essential part of the planning process, providing the extra support needed to ensure a seamless celebration.

Jenny and Mike chose the picturesque Gibson Island Club as their wedding venue, fulfilling Jenny’s dream of getting married along the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. The morning of the wedding was filled with excitement as Jenny and Mike got ready in the cozy cottage rooms next to Gibson Island Club.

With the picturesque Chesapeake Bay as their ceremony backdrop, the couple’s dear friend officiated, making their union even more meaningful and heartfelt. This decision added an intimate and personal touch, making the ceremony all the more special and unique to the couple. The idyllic location, sponsored by a close family friend who is a club member, set the stage for an unforgettable experience.

Jenny had a vision for a unique and meaningful escort display. Embracing their coastal-inspired theme and Maryland roots, they incorporated a crab motif into their seating chart—a delightful nod to the state’s iconic symbol.

The wedding was adorned with elegance, from the chargers purchased by the bride’s mom, to the flawlessly executed floral arch by Rhonda and her team at Rhonda Kaplan Floral Design. To ensure the beauty of the floral arrangements continued to be cherished throughout the evening, we repurposed them as a stunning DIY garland on the fireplace mantle!

Affirmative Groove, a vibrant and energetic band, set the perfect tone for the evening. The dance floor remained lively throughout the night, with friends and family celebrating Jenny and Mike’s love through joyful dancing and laughter.

Surrounded by friends and family who genuinely cared for them, Jenny and Mike’s wedding day radiated with warmth and positive energy. The love shared among their guests only elevated the joyous atmosphere, making it an unforgettable occasion. As the night drew to a close, the newlyweds were met by their beaming guests outside the venue. They hopped on the cutest golf cart, a fitting ending to their perfect wedding day and the beginning of their journey together as a married couple.

Jenny and Mike’s Gibson Island wedding, with the support of Elizabeth Giles Events, was a beautiful celebration of love and cherished relationships. The coastal-inspired setting, heartfelt touches, and the presence of their favorite people made this day truly magical and one to be remembered for a lifetime!
