It's Real Wedding Wednesday, and we have two beautiful weddings from the weekend of December 12th to share with you:
Erica and Andrew, 12/12/09 - Tremont Grand, Baltimore, MD
DJ: Jeff Brown
The setting: The lovingly restored, historic Tremont Grand hotel with beautifully appointed themed ballrooms.
The first dance: "Long December" by Counting Crows
A unique touch: The room was impeccably decorated with dramatic lighting and rich whites, beiges and blues, and accented by a six-tier wedding cake!
A fun surprise: The bride and groom choreographed their last dance to "Say Hey (I Love You)" by Michael Franti, and invited their guests to join halfway through -- it was lots of fun!
Anne and Chris, 12/12/09 - Sheraton Hotel, Reston, VA
DJ: David Johnson
The setting: The elegant Diamond Ballroom at the Sheraton was complemented by the couple's beautiful red rose centerpieces and rose-accented cake.
The first dance: "At Last" by Etta James
The music: Lots of Motown, 80s and hip hop kept everyone on their feet!
An interesting fact: The couple traveled up to Maryland from their home in warm, sunny Florida, just to be married close to their families and friends!
A touching moment: The bride and her sister, who was the maid of honor, brought each other to tears during the sister's beautiful toast.
