Whether you’re new to the Deep Creek scene or you’ve been vacationing here for years, you’re sure to notice the number of gorgeous vacation homes that sit along the shores of the lake. The beauty of the lake and the comfort of home create the perfect backdrop for an intimate Deep Creek vacation home wedding. One lucky couple, Michael and Esin, chose to celebrate their special day with the closest family and friends at Michael’s family home on Deep Creek Lake. Kristen Hurley Photography was there to capture it all.

The house was abuzz with laughter and excitement & hair spray and makeup. Outside, extra ribbons were carefully placed, and the tent was raised for potential rain. Esin’s cornflower blue bouquet was delivered and offered the perfect pop of color for the elegant backyard bash.

Turkish traditions made this intimate wedding even more special! Esin wrote the name of the single females in her life on the marked area of her shoe. In this tradition, the names that are worn off by the end of the night will be next in line to get married!

“Adi en cabuk silinen, en mutlu olsun!” roughly translates to “The name that is removed quickly, will be the happiest!”

The impending rain passed as the sun shone down, illuminating the couple who stood under the wooden arches. They exchanged their vows as the sparkling water behind them dazzled the guests.

Want to know another reason to get married at Deep Creek? In case it wasn’t clear, natural backdrops are at every turn! The lake, the gardens, and the woods provided such a peaceful and bright environment for formal portraits with Esin and Michael.

The sun, the flowers, the greenery…MAGIC!

What would a lake wedding being without an adventure on a boat? These two rode to their reception in the family boat! CHEERS!

Will O’ The Wisp was decorated with romantic touches and florals provided by Farmhouse Fête!

Their arrival led them straight into their first dance to Chris Isaak’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. Sweet treats, a fabulous meal, and fun dancing continued into the night. Congratulations, lovebirds! We wish you all the happiest the world has to offer!
