Shannon & Stephen | Historic Waverly Mansion | Maryland Wedding Planner

Shannon and Stephen were the most fun couple! From our first phone call and meeting, until after their wedding, I was smiling and laughing through the entire planning process. It means so much to me when a client asks for your opinion or advice and then lets you know that they trust your vision as you run with it. Shannon is a designer herself, which puts on the pressure to really bring everything together, but on their big day each detail was perfect and stunning. 

The invitations were custom made by Shannon and a perfect representation of their marriage, I absolutely love the hand drawn details. Amy from Amy Lauren Floral Design brought to life every shade of purple I could imagine when creating the centerpieces, bouquets and the INCREDIBLE arch for the ceremony. We had the pleasure of working with Nichole from Nichole Meredith Photography and can't wait to work with her again, these photos are such a perfect representation of the day. Jenny Z kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night, and even the grandparents enjoyed sitting on the edge of the dance floor in beautiful furniture from White Glove Rentals.

Samreen & Chaz | Coradetti Glassblowing Studio Wedding | Maryland Wedding Planner

When I first met with Samreen & Chaz I could tell how excited they were to plan a wedding reception to spend an evening with their closest family and friends. They had a beautiful traditional ceremony the week before, and wanted a night to celebrate that union. We were honored they had asked us to be a part of it! 

These two are off the charts adorable, their friends and family were so much fun, and the venue was incredible. I loved all of their ideas for decor and had a great time pulling everything together for the full design. With the help of Jes Smith Designs there were stunning paper goods and even agate place cards, then the flowers by Steelcut Flower Co were absolutely stunning and a perfect fit. 

We had the chance to work with Anna Schmidt Photography for the first time and had a blast. Thank you, Anna for these beautiful photos.

Megan & Corey | Belmont Manor Wedding | Maryland Wedding Coordinator

Megan and Corey are one of the most fun couples we have worked with. Their love for life and each other was clear from our very first meeting. They are both adventurous, full of excitement, and had a clear vision for their day- FUN! The planning process was a reflection of that first meeting. Megan was always so excited to talk about their big day and she was so organized it made my heart skip a beat!  

They were married at Belmont Manor House, a stunning historic home located on a beautiful property in Elkridge, Maryland. The weather was absolutely perfect for a early November day and the bridal party attire was the best match to the setting. 

All of the special details of their wedding day were heartfelt and well designed. Corey's best man was his father, does it get sweeter than that? I think not. His dad gave the most touching speech followed by the MOH and two other friends. Each of them told stories of how special Megan and Corey are to everyone that was present. 

We are so honored to have worked with the two of them and witness their marriage from the start. Enjoy these stunning photos from their Belmont Manor wedding day!

Amanda & Josh | Celebrations at the Bay Wedding | Maryland Wedding Planner

Walking out of Starbucks after our initial consultation, I said a prayer that Amanda and Josh would book with us. As I sat with them and their moms, I knew they were the type of clients we wanted to spend time planning with. Amanda knew what she wanted and Josh knew he wanted to make sure Amanda had everything on her list. Their moms, Maureen and Sue, wanted both of them to have their wishes come true. 

The five of us talked like we had known each other forever, and that remained the same for the entire planning process. From getting to see Amanda & Josh's new house, then Sue's new house, bonding over the news of Baby Volpe and going over every personal wedding detail, we all had so much fun. The wedding weekend arrived and I was overjoyed to know that these two were finally becoming husband and wife because they were 110% meant for each other. 

The weekend was beautiful, and Josh had the very best reaction of any groom when he saw Amanda for the first time. It melted my heart, and I am sure everyone else's as well. The love these two have for each other is hard to explain, it's the kind that you can tell it's easy for them because they are perfect together, as they have been for almost 10 years! Their families also have a love for them that bursts out of their hearts at all times. The Palmer and Chiasson families will always have a special places in our hearts, what an adventure it was with all of them! 

Amanda and Josh answered some fun questions that we didn't have the chance to share before their wedding, check out their answers below!

How did you meet? 

We met at an 8th grade graduation pool party. He got my number through a mutual friend because we both thought that the other was cute, but we were too nervous to ask for each others' number in person. We went on a couple adorably awkward junior high dates. He asked me to be his girlfriend at my freshman homecoming dance and now we're getting married!

 LOVE these three!! 

LOVE these three!!

What was your favorite part of wedding planning?

Our favorite part of wedding planning is seeing our dream come to life before our eyes. Yes, a wedding can be very stressful at times, but I wouldn't want to go through it with anyone else but him.

Do you have any advice for future brides and grooms?

My advice would be to stay patient and be kind. There are going to be times when wedding planning will seem to be extremely stressful and you are drowning in decisions, but always take a step back, remember why you are getting married, and make time for each other. Don't forget to have some spontaneous date nights!!!
