Jefferson Patterson Park Wedding by tPoz Photography

Personal touches, and a bit of Maryland history, made this Jefferson Patterson Park wedding from tPoz Photography truly special!  Bride, Sarah, tells us more about why they picked the venue for their big day! “We picked Jefferson Patterson Park, because it felt like us. It was a blank canvas, rustic and had a lot of Maryland History to it (Brett loves History), so it just seemed the like perfect fit. We didn’t want anything fancy or uptight, just something low key and fun. Outdoors and near the water, was something else we had wanted, to have that open and Maryland feel. Jefferson Patterson Park is GORGEOUS, and so many people do not know about it. We didn’t technically have a “theme” but we ended up doing pretty much all things Maryland. Since B & I were both born & raised here, we have great pride in our state & the history in it.”

“We were surprised with and adored our locally grown flowers, but the one thing that we requested, and that Ellen from Local Color Flowers hunted down for us, since it was technically out of season, was Hops. She used that as the basis of the boutonnieres and added the colors around it.”

“We made our ceremony centerpiece from a piece of an old wooden fence that I got a Lucketts Flea for 10 dollars; we painted it with Annie Sloan Chalkpaint in white to give it the rustic look of a white picket fence.”

“My mom came in HUGE for us with the reception decor. She made ALL the table runners for the tables. We picked out different patterned fabric in orange, purple & gray. So every table would essentially be a little different from another. We also had fabric pennants, which my mom made as well, hanging from the barn, in the same color scheme (orange, gray, purple) and they had completely different patterns then the table runners, I even found a gray & orange crab fabric and white Christmas lights hanging from the barn ceiling as well.”

“We didn’t want to do a traditional wedding cake, so instead we did 8 different Smith Island Cakes (which are actually the State Cake!) and put a twist on it, since our last name is Smith!”

“We knew that we didn’t want traditional wedding food. Being at a rustic barn, we thought of our wedding as a chic BBQ, so that’s what we went for.  For the main course, Smokey Joe’s catered some delish NC style pulled pork, pulled chicken, Pit Beef & Pit Corned Beef. For sides we had roasted potatoes, veggie medley and mac & cheese (OMG so good!), Garden Salad and mini rolls.  Besides the cakes, we decided to do a S’mores bar; I’m pretty obsessed with the gooey treat, so it was something that we both decided on doing pretty quickly.  We had the regular grahams and the chocolate grahams, dark and milk chocolate, reeses PB cups, regular marshmallows and a variety of specialty ones including caramel swirl, toasty coconut, chocolate chipetta, and vanilla bean.  We had it set up on table with the marshmallows in different glass apothecary containers and the chocolate & grahams in metal containers. We used a vintage chicken feeder to hold stones & the sternos in there, and just wooden kabob sticks to cook the marshmallows!”
