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.
