A Baltimore Blast

Adrienne and Daniel kicked off my Fall season in true party fashion.  I had been working with the couple for only about four months and what we pulled together was nothing short of the bride's "vision" as her groom so many times put it. 

Daniel was great.  His sense of humor was so sly, that many vendors we sat with weren't sure when he was kidding  and when he wasn't.

The setting for the ceremony and reception was the Frederick Douglass Myers Maritime House Museum in Fells Point.  The space was modern and had tons of character.  Like many of my brides, Adrienne was being pulled in two direction: towards the classic, traditional wedding day style, a la cake cutting and candelabras and modern, chic and fun- a la her peacock inspired color pallet of jewel tones, geometric tables and cupcakes. In the end, the fusion was just right. 

The ceremony took place just in front of a dock on the water.  Guests were struck by the fabulous vocal stylings of a close friend.  Tissues were passed around.  After cocktails and hors d'oeuvres were passed outside, guests were invited into the building for a feast of tastes.  We paid homage to the bride's Texas background and the Groom's Cali roots.  We also had a station that brought it all together featuring crab cakes and Old Bay fries.

After a dress change and some touching sorority serenading, the party let loose and guests danced off their ice cream sundaes way into the night of memorial day weekend.  Not a bad way to kick off the Fall--fabulous couple, amazing weather and a great team of vendors.  Thanks to all of you!
