Carmen & Shane in Dickerson, MD

One couple chooses a country locale and an eggplant-and-gray color scheme for their rustic and romantic celebration.

Carmen and Shane first met as freshmen at Patrick Henry College in Virginia, but didn't start dating until they were seniors. At their wedding, Carmen wore a Melissa Sweet gown ("The dress of my dreams!" she says) and carried a bouquet of calla lilies, fiddlehead ferns, ranunculuses, and thistle. Shane wore an Express suit with a Geoffrey Beene tie.
