Back in January I met with a bride who had come quite a distance to get together. Liz Detter was busy trying to plan a wedding while working for the State Dept. in Mexico City. At some point towards the end of the year, she had realized there weren't enough hours in her hectic day to make the calls she needed to to get it done. When we met, we discussed the charming venue she had chosen and everything else that needed to be done.
Liz's parent are from Hollywood, MD so she and her fiance Alan decided on the Greenwell Foundation, a charming state park with an old home near the water. As we moved into May, a concerned Liz had thoughts of postponing the wedding due to the swine flu scare. While her job wouldn't let her leave town too early, Liz flew back to DC with a few extra days to spare and even got in some excitement with a kyaking trip two days before the big day.
With nothing but perfect weather surrounding the wedding, Liz and Alan took their viows in front of friends and family in the quaint rose garden just before the festive reception tent. The groom was overwhelmed with emotion seeing his bride, whom he hadn't seen all day, walk down the aisle.
Guests danced the sun down and the night away as the stars came out over the water. One more successful Memorial Day weekend wedding!
Thank you to all the local vendors who raised the bar for this bride.
