Maryland Wedding

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!

We can’t wait to share more from each of these weddings, plus several others! Stay tuned, 2019, we are READY FOR IT!

Meet An Enchanting Couple: Cayla & Connor

We’re so excited for Connor & Cayla to tie the knot this weekend! When we had our first consultation in Panera, I knew they would be the perfect addition to the 2018 Enchanting Couple family. 1- They are getting married at Main Street Ballroom, where we happened to have weddings the two weekends leading up to their wedding and 2- They were all about having a great time with their friends and family to celebrate becoming HUSBAND AND WIFE!! You’ll notice how accurate #2 is by their answers below.

How did you meet and how did he pop the question?

Connor and I met at Towson our freshman year. We lived two doors away from each other in the dorms.

Connor surprised me with a night at a bed and breakfast called Inn at Horn Point in Annapolis. We walked back from dinner and went down to a private little beach and were talking when he pulled the ring out and asked.

What are you most looking forward to on your wedding day?

Marrying my best friend and celebrating our love with our friends and famil

Are you taking a honeymoon? Where will you be going?

Connor and I have never been outside the country except to the Bahamas. We are taking our first big adventure as a married couple and going to Italy for two weeks after the wedding

Do you have any advice for future brides & grooms?

It's very stressful planning a wedding so make sure you BREATHE! Take time away from wedding planning-don't let it consume you. Everything will totally be worth it though on your wedding day.
