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 Ballroom...so 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.
