Wedding Day Details

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.

Thank you to every vendor that made this day come to life, and an extra thank you to Shannon, Stephen and their friends/family for such an amazing day. We wish you all a marriage full of reading and laughter :)

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.

Gift Guide For Your Newly Engaged Friends

Engagement season is once again upon us and with that comes engagement parties, bridal showers and bachelorette parties. If you are one to enjoy spoiling your friends and giving them a gift they will love, we want to make it easier for you. We're far past the days of towels, ironing boards and cutlery (though those are still great, too!) and into the age of "Wifey" shirts and custom glassware.

While some trends will never fade, because they are awesome, new ones have arrived and your engaged friends are going to thank you forever when they see the cutest gift from you.

1- Cute Phone Case. Because people change their phone cases every few months anyways, why not get them one that matches their season of life? We love this one from Love From Lucy  on Etsy.  

2- Getting Ready Outfit. I couldn't choose between these two options, a white sleek bridal robe  is a classic, it's comfy and you can wear it again. Sincerely Sofi Designs is great for bridal robes and for the entire bridal party!

On the other hand, I love these fun shirts. You can get them customized to say anything, I would pick "after this we are getting fries" or fried pickles ;)  

3- Wedding Planner. Every bride needs a fun paper wedding planner to take with her to meetings, and this Southern Weddings option is by far my favorite! 

4- Pretty Hanger. This is so important for the wedding day. I've mentioned it several times before, you spend so much money on your beautiful dress, why leave it on a plastic hanger? Give your bestie this beautiful gift so she doesn't have to worry about it! 

5- The Mrs Box. While these small velvet boxes are a bit expensive, they make detail shots! Once you know the colors of your friends wedding, this would make a beautiful gift! You can even have it monogrammed. 

Do you have any gift ideas to add? Hopefully this list helps! 

A Look Back on 2017 | Maryland Wedding Coordinator

I can't believe we had the honor of working alongside so many amazing couples this year. It was so sad to see their names fade from my daily inbox as planning of their dream wedding day ended, but I am so happy to see them thriving in their marriage and life. 

I may never get used to the fact that we have the chance to do this, together with my mom (and sister), we have celebrated alongside families as their children/nieces/nephews/grandchildren get married. It's such a big day for everyone and we do not take that lightly. To be given the opportunity to make sure moms enjoy the special day, MOH's have the time to focus on the bride and other vendors are able to give their all, it truly means so much to us. 

We had no idea where Enchanting Events would go when we started talking about it several years ago, and we couldn't be happier to see what this year brought us. It was our best year yet, with some of the most amazing clients. Thank you to each couple that had us along for the ride. Here are some of our favorite photos from this year. 

The only two weddings we had this year without Emily!
