The town of Bel Air is the county seat of Harford County, Maryland. According to the 2010 United States Census the population of the town was 10,120, and its identity has gone through several incarnations since 1780. Aquilla Scott, who had inherited land known as “Scott’s Improvement Enlarged,” planned the town on a portion that he called “Scott’s Old Fields.” Four years later, the town had expanded as local politicians, merchants, and innkeepers purchased lots from Scott, and the county commissioners decided to change its name to the more appealing “Belle Aire.” In his deeds, Scott dropped one letter, renaming the town, “Bell Aire.” Around 1798, court records dropped two more letters, and “Bel Air” was born.

So you have decided to have your wedding on one of the beautiful beaches of the Outer Banks, and you are looking for a unique way to make your wedding special. The seashell ceremony component is a great choice for couples who want an unforgettable wedding experience in a natural setting.
Adding the shell ceremony gives your cherished family and friends a way to participate in your union rather than just witnessing it. I like to describe it as the Outer Banks version of “throwing a penny in the wishing well” but the pennies are seashells and the wishing well is the great Atlantic Ocean. Read more →
