Couple: Beth and Brad Wedding Date: May 2, 2010
DJ: Michael Bell
All of my clients are awesome, but every so often I get to work with a couple that I really share a special connection with. Beth and Brad were one of these couples. Beth's uncle was my favorite teacher in high school, and from there, we all built an amazing rapport that made working their wedding not seem like work at all!
The wedding took place at the very hip Pier 5 Hotel in downtown Baltimore. After a breathtaking waterside ceremony and an elegant cocktail reception, guests moved into the beautiful and modernly appointed ballroom inside. Beth looked absolutely stunning, and her many bridesmaids were gorgeous in green dresses.
Beth and Brad shared their first dance as husband and wife to "Maybe I'm Amazed" by Paul McCartney, one of those songs that is unique for a first dance, yet everyone knows and loves it. Their guests really got into a mix of oldies, hip hop, dance hits and songs from the 80s.
There were lots of special Jewish traditions at this wedding, including the motzi and, of course, a very spirited hora! Later, Beth and her sorority sisters recreated their pledge dance to "Sandstorm" by Darude, which was a lot of fun!
I was fortunate to work with some amazing vendors on this wedding -- Heather Johnson and her team at the Pier 5, photographer Maria Vicencio and her husband Drew Miller (who provided us with these amazing shots!) and Jim Skipper of Black Tie Video. Can't wait to work with them all again! Congratulations, Beth and Brad!
