Megan & Chris | Main Street Ballroom Wedding | Maryland Wedding Coordinator

Megan and Chris were married in Ellicott City, Maryland. A quaint historic town with charming details and beautiful buildings, the perfect backdrop. They tied the knot on September 21st and danced the night away in this special little town with their family and friends.

Throughout the planning process, Megan and Chris had their friends and family in mind for every detail. They wanted each person to feel the love through personal and unique details. From booking a local Bed & Breakfast for the girls to get ready in, to the thoughtful details throughout the decor, every aspect truly represented who they are as a couple. While it is difficult to pinpoint a specific event from the entire day, I absolutely loved that they had a reading of the Velveteen Rabbit during their ceremony. It's the personal touches like that, that really stand out, no matter how many weddings we are involved in.

The main decor piece was a large heart sculpted by one of their best friends, Peter Machen, out of metal. The heart was the backdrop to their ceremony and remained as the location to their sweetheart table. It was a stunning piece of art and represented the amount of love within that room. Other gorgeous details of the day included their signature drink menus, which had illustrations of their pups, beautifully designed florals for the bridal party and the custom Converse Megan and Chris rocked into the reception.

The group of people present to witness Megan and Chris getting married was perfect. If we could live this day over and over again, we absolutely would. Congratulations on 6 months of wedded bliss, you two!

Cayla & Connor | Main Street Ballroom Wedding | Maryland Wedding Coordinator

On my way to the rehearsal for Connor and Cayla, I received a phone call. It was the best man, the grooms brother, asking if I knew the venues policy for dogs. You see, Cayla and Connor have two pups that mean the world to them. I knew this because we even talked about them during our initial conversation, and they were also involved in their engagement session. Thankfully, Cayla and Connor were celebrating their wedding at one of the coolest venues- Main Street YES bring on the dogs! This phone call set the tone for the wedding weekend, it was full of fun, laughter, and people clearly so excited to celebrate Cayla and Connor.


The girls got ready at a "castle" right in-between their ceremony and reception venues, we pulled into the driveway and my jaw dropped. How did this beautiful little castle make its way to Ellicott City? Seriously, Patapsco Female Institute and Main Street Ballroom brides, check it out!

Guests made their way to the Patapsco Female Institute via trolley and the fun was just beginning! The ceremony backdrop was a beautiful set of doors built by the grooms family, the view from the top of the hill was perfect and the weather was exactly what you would hope for on a fall day. If you haven't been to the Patapsco Female Institute, I highly recommend checking it out! The grounds are so unique! A perfect setting for such a beautiful bride (Cayla's long sleeve dress- OMG!) and groom. The ceremony itself was perfectly heartfelt, a beautiful combination of humor and sentimental words.


After the I Do's were complete, guests were trolleyed down the hill and across the street to Main Street Ballroom, where the party was just getting started. Absolutely Perfect Catering had a beautiful setup for cocktail hour and guests were enjoying the perfect weather on the Main Street Ballroom patio.

The reception kicked off with a beautiful first dance, a wonderful dinner and heartfelt speeches. This is also where that earlier mentioned phone call about the dog policy came into play...during the best man speech, in came Cayla & Connor's pups! It was a perfectly planned surprise.

The rest of the reception took off in a similar fashion- lots of fun, dancing, and a great drinks all around. Another reminder of why we LOVE what we do! Newlyweds celebrating and singing their hearts out with their closest family and friends.

THANK YOU to the amazing vendors:

Maneesha & Mike | George Peabody Library | Maryland Wedding Coordinator

Maneesha and Mike were married in Baltimore over the summer and it was a gorgeous wedding at the Baltimore Basilica and The George Peabody Library. Maneesha is from Trinidad and Mike is Maryland, they hoped to find a beautiful design to incorporate both of their backgrounds. Spoiler alert: it did, and it was flawless!

My first phone call with Maneesha and Mike involved their engagement story (which is always one of my first questions- because YES!) and it was incredible. The sweetest detail is that Mike flew all the way to Trinidad to ask Maneesha's father if he could marry his daughter. How amazing is that?! These two were meant to be an Enchanting couple and I said my prayers after our phone call. Thankfully, we were able to work together and create their magical day!

During the design process, the words "colorful" and "tropical" were mentioned several times. The bridesmaids were wearing a bright blue, the flowers were a tropical variety and the classic venue was to be transformed. These two clearly care about their family and friends immensely because their main focus was ensuring everyone had an amazing time and enjoyed delicious food.

On the wedding day, everyone got ready at Hotel Indigo, which is across the street from the Basilica, it was perfect! The girls spent the morning laughing and chatting while their dresses were displayed in the window, and the guys were upstairs hanging out prepping for the big events that followed. Maneesha and Mike didn't have a first look, so the beautiful aisle walk was the first time they were able to see each other. Maneesha was escorted by both of her parents- an incredibly sweet moment! And jaws dropped as she walked down the aisle.

After the "I Do's" the bridal party was off to Federal Hill for photos and lots of congratulations from visitors of the historic Baltimore site. Kay Pea Photography captured this group so well- they were ready to get the party started, oh goodness did they!

The George Peabody Library was filled to the brim with friends and family from all over the world. It was a perfect for these two sweethearts. After a delicious meal, touching speeches and the most amazing first dance, District Remix kicked it up and the dance floor was PACKED all night long. This group knew how to have a good time. The feeling of watching everything come together and the guests having the time of their lives will never get old. This wedding was one for the books and we're so excited to be reliving it through this post.

Congratulations again, Maneesha and Mike! We loved being involved in your happily ever after. And a special thank you to all of the amazing vendors.

Autumn & Gino | Lighthouse Sound | Maryland Wedding Coordinator

Nearing the end of 2017, we got a message with a message including photograph of two close family a beautiful ENGAGEMENT RING! Gino popped the question while he and Autumn were on vacation and the wedding planning started as soon as they got home. We were off to the races discussing venues, color schemes, the whole nine yards for a beautiful spring Maryland wedding.

Ocean City, Maryland is a special place for many Baltimore locals, but especially Autumn and Gino, so anywhere near "the beach" as us Baltimoreans call it, would be the perfect setting for their wedding. After a few venue tours, Lighthouse Sound was deemed number one and the ideas continued to flow.

Gino is an architect for a landscaping company, so flowers, greenery, and even trees were a very important aspect to the big day, the Baltimore Ravens are a favorite (of course!) so purple was included in many ways, and these two have so many close relationships with friends and family that they were also thought of throughout the planning process.

A few of my favorite aspects were the escort herbs where each person had their herb sitting at their seat with a paper flag that had their name one it, the beautiful guest book tree that Autumn and Gino painted, and the FUN first dance they shared. It was a dance party once they kicked up the music!

Autumn and Gino are perfect for each other, they always make eachother laugh (as well as everyone else around them) and are so crafty that DIY projects were no struggle! Enjoy these photos from their special day!
