It's Wednesday, and time for our Real Wedding Wednesday feature! Take a look and see what we did:
Lauren & Theron, 7/18/2009 - Kent Manor Inn, Stevensville, MD
DJ: Evan Reitmeyer
The setting: A gorgeous afternoon outside on Maryland's Eastern Shore, with a picturesque ceremony on the water and an intimate reception in the Garden House.
The first dance: "Everything" by Michael Buble, surrounded by their bridal party and friends.
Fun highlight: The couple's cake featured two very realistic blue crabs as the cake topper -- it was pretty amazing!
Outstanding vendors: Coordinator Stephanie Hughes of Diamond Events and her staff made my job a lot easier, and photographer Brian Slanger was, as always, a pleasure to work with. Brian even provided some pictures for us!
And, here's a picture of the crab cake topper that I took with my phone:
Amy & Collin, 7/18/2009 - Historic Oakland, Columbia, MD
DJ: Jeff Brown
The setting: The intimate and elegantly appointed dining room at Historic Oakland, a beautiful manor house circa 1811
The first dance: "Someone Like You" by Van Morrison
A unique touch: The couple, who met at The Melting Pot, gave out jars of a homemade chocolate fondue mix for their guests to take home
An unexpected surprise: Amy got on the microphone to acknowledge the 40th wedding anniversary of her parents -- it was very touching!
Outstanding vendors: Christina Hamilton from Hamilton Photography was great to work with, and gave us pictures!
Christina & Nathan, 7/18/2009 - The Carlyle Club, Alexandria, VA
DJ: Soor Kothari
The setting: The Carlyle Club and its unique Art Deco style provided a spectacular locale for an elegant celebration
The playlist: The bride and groom requested a wide variety of songs from disco to old school hip hop, Louis Prima to Aerosmith
A fun highlight: An 85-year-old guest led a conga line -- who'd have expected that? It was charming!
Outstanding vendors: Larry O'Connor at the Carlyle Club was hospitable and accommodating as always!
