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 friends...plus 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!

2018: Our Best Year Yet | Maryland Wedding Coordinator

Who knew that having a baby during peak wedding season would still get us our best year ever? We met our goal early in the year, started booking for this year much earlier than we ever had, and we have been blessed with some of the most amazing clients.

2018 was full of meetings with the sweetest clients where we left feeling incredibly thankful for the couples that have faith in us. I truly think this will be a year I look back on forever, no matter how many couples we work with in the future. It was a learning year with a variety of styles, colors. etc., a wide array of different vendors and more.

It's hard to summarize all of the feelings we have for the several wedding weekends, beautiful sparkler send-offs and most importantly, couples that have shared the first day of their new adventure with us. Take a look back at some of the special days we were involved in throughout 2018 and follow along for the next few months as we work to recap each wedding (plus a few more that aren’t pictured!)!

Thank you to the amazing photographers we worked with in 2018 for sharing photographs with us! We truly couldn't have had such a wonderful year without you!
