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!

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

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!

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!
