Maryland Style Inspiration

So we're finally starting to put together all the details for our upcoming engagement party. It'll be a small bash of our immediate family and closest friends and bridal party. Since Bj and I are both originally from Maryland, we've decided to celebrate our roots as the theme of the party. I've slowly been gathering ideas and images, and thought I'd offer up some of my inspiration. You can get a good idea about our proud, Maryland heritage through these images.
