wedding vendor spotlight | eleven courses catering | maryland wedding caterer

Since it’s been a minute since our last wedding vendor spotlight, I’m SO excited to bring this series back and pickup right where we left off… with loads of eye-candy for you to help design your wedding to be one that leaves people speechless because it’s so YOU.

Today’s spotlight features an incredible local maryland wedding caterer that is one of the most artistic and inventive teams I’ve had the honor of working alongside! Eleven Courses Catering’s culinary creativity constantly has me asking “how are you going to top this?” and then they do… every time!! (ps – how’d ya like that sentence’s alliteration?) Melissa and Jim have such a passion for designing a culinary experience like no other with every event they’re a part of – it’s so refreshing to see how open to new ideas and collaboration they are (and as another husband and wife team, they get even more bonus points in my book!).

If you don’t already follow them, go do it now – eleven courses catering!

What led you to pursue a career in catering?
When I met Jim in college, he cooked an amazing dinner for me on our first date. It was love at first bite. I was so blown away by how he could take a few simple ingredients and create something, almost melodic to eat. I was so inspired by him that I started organizing dinner parties for friends and family (I have a design background and loved creating the perfect table setting) – from there we launched a private chef company and a few years later turned into exclusively large-scale events.

What is your favorite aspect about working with engaged couples and within the wedding industry?
I love that we never cater the same wedding twice, each couple is so different and unique – there stories are their own and the fact that we get to be a part of each one makes my heart sing. We are part of a day that ends up being a lifelong memory – talk about an incredible feeling of euphoria!

best wedding ever accelerator space wedding

 

What are some creative ways couples can stay within their budget when it comes to their menu planning?
I love this question. Sometimes less is more, so scaling back on the number of options, without compromising quality or flavor profiles can be a very effective budgeting strategy. If you wow your guests with a phenomenal one entrée option or two, vs three of four – it can be such a win win!

Where would you go if you were planning a honeymoon right now?
I am pretty lucky because Jim and I take a culinary tour each year to a different spot on the globe, scouring the world, looking for inspiration to bring to life through our chef-curated, ever changing menus. These trips always feel honeymoon-esque to me! We just got back from a trip to Italy, next up is Peru.

eleven courses accelerator space wedding

Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration in everyday favorites – reimagining classic dishes with modern twists, or taking a single ingredient and loving on it to create dishes that show it in a new way; color schemes always conjure up whimsical ways to create new recipes too – and of course there is the change of the seasons and our culinary tours. I also get a ton of inspiration from our clients, their backgrounds and stories.

eleven courses accelerator space wedding

Favorite recent read or podcast?
With three littles ones, my time to read or listen to something besides Moana or nursery rhymes is pretty scarce haha, but Jim always seems to have a book in tow – and I revel in excerpts he reads me – most recently was The Restaurant Man by Joe Bastianich. He usually has something to do with food or music on his nightstand, haha.

eleven courses accelerator space wedding

Any exciting upcoming projects or collaborations we should watch for?
We recently were invited back on Good Day L.A. to talk wedding trends for 2018, we will be returning to Houston as guests on Great Day Houston, as well as, hosting another event at the national Health Museum there. We love being able to share our recipes and stories with local and national audiences. We were also selected as the March of Dimes – Celebrity Chef of the Year, which will be officially announced next month. Such a complete honor and dream for us!


Well deserved and so exciting! I can’t wait for us to work together at M+C’s September Main Street Ballroom wedding… if you’re looking for a wedding caterer that will design a show-stopping menu, work with any dietary needs/restrictions and still making the most beautiful and delicious food you’ve ever had, your search is over! 😉

helllooooo, party people! I’m so excited to share Abby + Mike’s wedding day with you (and I apologize for it being long overdue!), so we’re just going to dive right in… 🙂

accelerator space wedding introductions

at our last accelerator space wedding of 2017 (see the first two here and here!), we had the absolute honor of capturing the love of an adoring and super sweet couple that has a tight-knit family and wanted to enjoy their day as a celebration of the love of those that got them to where they are today!

ps – there’s one word that comes to mind for the neutral color dress Abby’s sister / MOH chose and the bouquets that Radebaugh’s provided: STUNNING!

what better way to enjoy everyone assembled comfortably in one space than with lots of natural light, industrial windows with views of a killer sunset and an outdoor patio with cafe lights hanging overhead! The Accelerator Space is different than any other Baltimore wedding venue you’ve seen before – a floor to ceiling metal panel wall, artifacts from its car dealership warehouse days, worn wood floors, multiple skylights, entry doors made out of salvaged industrial windows, the uniqueness factor goes on and on – it can comfortably hold 275 people inside for a seated dinner and 100 people outside on the enclosed patio for cocktails!

wedding reception at accelerator space

  • one of my favorite aspects of Abby + Mike’s relationship is that Mike’s dog Fran, is ultimately responsible for officially bringing them together forever after dating on and off after meeting at Towson University, their senior year… dog love stories are the best!! so we made sure to incorporate Fran in their engagement photos at Hampton Mansion to show off her important role! 🙂
  • when designing their wedding day, Abby wanted it to be as relaxing and stress-free as possible; she did just that by prioritizing many family-oriented aspects… they got ready at her sister Hannah’s beautifully decorated home, asked only siblings to be in their bridal party and had a first look with her dad that truly made everyone tear up, even Abby herself, despite clear direction that she wasn’t going to cry! ;)(pro secret: it’s inevitable – I’ve yet to see a bride NOT tear up at a father daughter first look!)justin alexander wedding gown

  • the reception details complimented the space and added a personalized touch; her sister Hannah designed and wrote out the drink menu on an old window as well as the welcome sign on a mirror! escort cards were displayed on a huge oversized frame and the table centerpieces were low yet full of soft tones and glowing lanterns… perfection!

  • during cocktail hour, the abundance of natural light and casual, comfortable atmosphere of the Accelerator Space was on display with tables on wheels setup in the center of the room to allow people to move freely exploring the space and mingling. I love these tables!signature drink menu accelerator space cocktail hour

  • last but not least, the dessert table… made up of cinnamon buns from Blue Moon Cafe, Insomnia Cookies and cupcakes from La Cakerie, it was a sweet tooth lover’s dream and a perfect way to end the night! I loved how they incorporated local bakeries and dessert offerings uniquely special to them. 🙂View More: http://urbanrowphoto.pass.us/abigailmikewedding112517

Here are some of my favorite moments from the start of their day to the last dance… enjoy!! I hope more couples embrace the real meaning of this special time in your lives, as Abby + Mike did, by surrounding yourselves with friends and family as much as possible during the big day!

5 unique and creative ways to add color to your wedding!

Now that spring is officially here, color (and lots of it!) is making its way back into our wardrobe, food and celebrations… and I can’t wait to see ALL. THE. COLORS!!

Anyone else a huge color lover? Obviously, the biggest way to incorporate color into your wedding day is with your flowers, but there are other fun ways to involve ROYGBIV too. Here are 5 ways to infuse color into your wedding details that you might not have thought of but can have a huge impact on your guests and (my favorite…) your photographs!

  1. ceremony backdrop: chuppah, floral arches, geometric shapes, custom art
    the most popular chuppah designs you’ve probably seen include some greenery or floral elements but Maggie + Ben’s Italian vineyard wedding took it to the next level with a floral arch full of greenery, peonies and garden roses!
    View More: http://urbanrowphoto.pass.us/maggiebenwedding2

    watercolor peony programs for the win!!!

    View More: http://urbanrowphoto.pass.us/maggiebenwedding2

    Courtney + Mike’s handmade chuppah used eucalyptus leaves and multiple herbs to bring an amazing scent and vibrant natural look to their Accelerator Space wedding ceremony. Bonus: afterwards, the greenery was used to add lush beauty to their sweetheart table!

    Another example of a super simple contemporary chuppah design is this one, made out of copper pipe. I love how clean and minimal it is!

    This modern industrial wedding at Main Street Ballroom used untreated wood 2x4s to create a simple geometric focal point for a dynamic hanging floral installation!

    Hiring a local artist to create a one of a kind custom painting could almost steal the show and may be my favorite look for the coming year… NO other ceremony will ever resemble yours when something like this is behind you!

    View More: http://urbanrowphoto.pass.us/assemblyroomeditorial

  2. specialty cocktails
    red, orange and coral colored drinks are the best since they always add that perfect pop of color to any setting!View More: http://urbanrowphoto.pass.us/abigailmikewedding112517
    View More: http://urbanrowphoto.pass.us/abigailmikewedding112517
  3. tablescape: placesettings, names and napkins
    how guests find their seats at the table can be a great way to incorporate an elegant layer of sparkle at each placesetting… why not add their names in gold?!
    View More: http://urbanrowphoto.pass.us/maggiebenwedding2

    don’t forget about napkins! it’s the perfect amount of color on an otherwise mostly white surface…

    have you thought about what your ceremony musicians might wear? I absolutely love this harpist’s peacock colored sparkly ensemble!View More: http://urbanrowphoto.pass.us/gildedpeacockmainstreetballroomstyledshootView More: http://urbanrowphoto.pass.us/gildedpeacockmainstreetballroomstyledshootView More: http://urbanrowphoto.pass.us/gildedpeacockmainstreetballroomstyledshoot
  5. reception venue: murals / balloon installations
    your venue should be a space that feels completely and totally YOU… so why not take advantage of the walls and surfaces they’ve already decorated!?View More: http://urbanrowphoto.pass.us/unitedwithlovenicolebryan2

    The American Visionary Art Museum is the epitome of color, fun, unique and one of a kind designs in every corner of their space. We had to take advantage of this mosaic wall and enormous birdhouse!

    Last but not least, BALLOONS! A rainbow ombre was what this colorful Assembly Room wedding used to bring in a splash of bold and vibrant color that their guests couldn’t stop talking about…

caren + jan | accelerator space bmore kitchen wedding | baltimore wedding photographer

Last year’s most popular venue for us was definitely the Accelerator Space, and it’s easy to see why… weddings with a unique industrial aesthetic are here to stay and I couldn’t be happier about it!

caren + jan wedding

 

ps – I’m also super excited to share this elegant chic Fall wedding with you because this will be my first post where I’m debuting a new format: less descriptive paragraph text, more summary highlights as lists and fun facts… because I get it: NO ONE READS ANYMORE (sad, but true). You’re here for the pretty visuals of Caren + Jan’s Accelerator Space wedding and I’ve got ’em!

Their wedding was so gorgeous and full of so many heartfelt moments that it was also recently featured up on Marryland Weddings!

Looking for Fall wedding inspiration? Look no further than this new Baltimore wedding venue with it’s ceremony, patio cocktail hour and reception space all in one place!

  • Caren + Jan were married under an incredibly gorgeous chuppah made up of copper pipe and a draped tallit with asymmetrically placed greenery.
  • I loved that Caren had not one, but TWO pairs of shoes for the day and BOTH were sparkly Kate Spade…!!!
  • Caren gifted her bridesmaids gray sweater wraps (see them below!) and combined with fun colorful sunglasses, they made the most fun bridal party shots!
  • Personal touches galore: Caren’s father’s catering company catered the whole event!, the center diamond in her engagement ring was her grandmother’s and their friend (and one of the groomsmen!) designed the invitation suite (Write Notepads) – I’m in love with how clean, modern and crisp it was!
  • fun fact: the underlying goal of this group shot was to move all of the guests outside onto the patio to allow the cater time and space to flip the ceremony and reception space… we were originally planning to take it in a different spot but ultimately I’m so happy with how it turned out!! 🙂 …now, huge group shots are totally our thing!

If you didn’t already know, October weddings are the new black.

urban-row-photo-accelerator-space-wedding_0025

And honestly, what’s not to love about the Fall months? Between soft earthy tones in your bouquet, leaves still on the trees for your first look and temperatures that leave you comfortable outside all day long and into cocktail hour as the sunsets, it’s a complete win-win for you AND your guests!

urban-row-photo-accelerator-space-wedding_0029

Courtney + Mike’s wedding was our first at the Accelerator Space, one of Baltimore’s newest wedding venues; 2017 was their opening year! This incredible venue sits just north of downtown Baltimore, south of the Senator Theater near Belvedere Square on York Road. I could go on and on about my favorite aspects of this venue, but that’ll have to be a separate post… 😉 let’s just say the worn character-filled wood floor, the industrial windows (and multiple skylights!) let in the perfect amount of natural light to invoke a gorgeous glow during the ceremony and the elevated outdoor teak-enclosed patio sitting among the rooftops of the neighborhood, provide a beautifully designed retreat from the hustle and bustle of urban life yet with the charm, character and edgy modern look Baltimore should celebrate and show-off.

urban-row-photo-accelerator-space-wedding_0038
urban-row-photo-accelerator-space-wedding_0043

It was quite a way to kick things off… these 2 sweethearts were so sweet and easygoing from the moment we met and I can’t sing their praises enough!

urban-row-photo-accelerator-space-wedding_0024

urban-row-photo-accelerator-space-wedding_0045

urban-row-photo-accelerator-space-wedding_0047

They incorporated so much personality and meaning into their wedding day… Courtney’s bridal jewelry included a series of frog brooches since her grandmother loved collecting them, Mike designed and built their chuppah and the napkins at each placesetting were hand tied with eucalyptus by Courtney’s mom, since greenery (and lots of it!) was the perfect choice to help soften the industrial chic space.

I also absolutely LOVED that Courtney wore a fascinator headpiece. It added so much romance and timelessness to her look!!!

I’m just going to put this out there right now: using eucalyptus as a theme throughout your florals is my absolute favorite and something that I hope never goes away. Please and thank you. Not just because of the beauty of it, but because it smells AH-MAZING, is so durable, versatile and striking, yet simple.

Also: mix and match BHLDN bridesmaid dresses. DROOLING. SWOONING. REPEAT.

Their family and friends were the absolute sweetest group and a lot of fun… how much fun? Just check out the groomsmen with their cigars and ‘tude walking along the side of the Accelerator Space… (shoutout to the best second photographer in all the land – Anthony captured them and crushed some of my favorite groomsmen portraits)!

Father daughter first look emotions? Nothing compares.

urban-row-photo-accelerator-space-wedding_0016urban-row-photo-accelerator-space-wedding_0018urban-row-photo-accelerator-space-wedding_0017

Well, the first look may run a close second… the raw emotion captured during every first look we’ve been a part of far outweighs anything I’ve seen when brides walk down the aisle. Just being honest. Private moments together are so few and far between on your wedding day, why not take advantage and preserve this feeling (with all of its anxiety, excitement and pure joy) for your grandchildren to see?

This chuppah is giving me all the feels, mainly because Mike cut down the trees himself to construct it and assembled it all on site the morning before the wedding… WHAT. #husbandgoals

mary pat + jonathan | frederick douglass isaac myers maritime park wedding | baltimore wedding photographer

So, it’s mid-January and I’m still waiting for a good snowstorm! The cold temperatures are still here and so I’ve been lucky enough to stay warm and busy with styled shoots, email management (keep those new inquiries coming, friends! I’m so excited for y’all!), website/workflow updating and a rebranding effort that has made the shorter days go even quicker than I’d like!

I’m continually amazed by how small a world it is and how paths cross at exactly the right time and place… Mary Pat found us while working with Courtney of Moore & Co. right after we collaborated on a styled shoot at the Accelerator Space. I’m so excited to feature one of my favorite waterfront weddings today; specifically one of my long-distance #urpcouples that travelled from Massachusetts to get married in Baltimore!!

Mary Pat grew up in the Baltimore area and wanted to marry Jonathan at a local venue that had breathtaking views of the harbor for all their guests to enjoy. As a couple that loves adventure and being outdoors together, they were planning a beautiful waterfront ceremony on the pier. Mother Nature had other plans as constant rain dashed any hopes of an outdoor ceremony that day… however, I have to say, I’ve never seen a more confident bride and a more festive getting ready suite within the Four Seasons Hotel! We persevered and had an even better first look location to capture those giddy emotions…

Without further ado, my favorite moments and expressions from their day!

Mary Pat’s grandparents’ names are on a plaque along the wall of St. Leo’s Church in Little Italy… so it was the perfect spot for a rainy day first look! Covered, romantic, diffused lighting and full of so much meaning.

wedding vendor spotlight | blush floral design studio | maryland wedding florist

Happy Wedding Wednesday to you! Although in all honesty, I’m still completely thrown off with what day it is this week – is anyone else? Please tell me I’m not alone…?! New Year’s Day falling on a Monday has been quite confusing for my brain, ha!

urban-row-photo-blush-floral-design-wedding_0002

The one thing that is very clear to me though, is how rewarding and wonderful it is to consistently work with such talented teams of wedding vendors in Baltimore and the surrounding areas… our 2nd vendor spotlight (peep the first one here if you missed it!) showcases Blush Floral Design Studio, and owner/designer, Linda Montuori!

urban-row-photo-accelerator-space-wedding-photographer_0001

I feel so lucky to have been introduced to Linda and her stunning work while designing a photoshoot with Courtney of Moore & Co. Event Stylists. As part of the Be More Inspired collective of wedding professionals, Courtney and Linda have worked together many times; as soon as I showed Courtney my vision for the greenery-filled bouquet, she recommended working with Blush… I couldn’t be happier and definitely shrieked with excitement when she first showed me a sneak peek of this amazing fern-filled bouquet that simply overflowed with texture and industrial elegance!!

urban-row-photo-blush-floral-design-wedding_0003

What led you to pursue a career in floral design?

I started my career in floral design after working in marketing for several years. As most people do at one time or another, I went through a phase of  wondering what I wanted to do when I grew up. I always loved visiting local florist shops when traveling through a new town or city.  If it had a great window display, I was in!  I always felt so inspired seeing unique flowers and designs (and there is nothing like the smell of a floral shop).

Eventually, I  stopped into my local florist and literally begged for a job.  I started out washing buckets, taking orders, and over time, I learned all aspects of running a florist shop. But my world changed when I started designing!

I decided to start my floral design business specializing in weddings. After my wedding business started to flourish while working out of my garage studio,  I moved my studio into a beautiful building that I now share with other wedding professionals.

Every week I meet with amazing  couples who put their trust in me to create fabulous floral designs for their wedding! I am truly blessed.
urban-row-photo-baltimore-wedding-photographer_0008

What is your favorite aspect about working with engaged couples and within the wedding industry?

I always ask my couples how they met. I find their stories to be fascinating and I definitely believe in fate!

urban-row-photo-baltimore-wedding-photographer_0007

What is one piece of advice you’d share with the bride and groom to keep in mind during the wedding planning process? 

Keep it personal! Hire vendors that you trust and then turn it over to them to take the stress off.

urban-row-photo-greenery-wedding_0004

What are some creative ways couples can stay within their budget when it comes to their wedding florals? 

My advice is to focus on three floral focal points… the bouquets, a ceremony focal point and your centerpieces. Other elements are great to add but are not a necessity when working on a budget (i.e., bar arrangements, powder room, cocktails etc.). Also, be open and let your floral designer use your Pinterest inspiration as a springboard to a new original interpretation specifically for you.

urban-row-photo-industrial-chic-wedding_0005Where would you go if you were planning a honeymoon right now? 

Right now? I would choose adventure mixed with relaxation, so today, I would choose Switzerland (if you ask me during the peak of wedding season, I might say just put me in a beach chair and don’t make me move).  🙂

Where do you find inspiration?  

I might see something in a magazine or on Pinterest or in a store that just catches my eye and before long I am in my studio trying to recreate it with my own twist. I love an afternoon with my design staff where I present an idea that is in my head and we try to figure it out. They inspire me!

urban-row-photo-baltimore-wedding-photographer_0006

Favorite recent read or must-listen-to podcast?

I can’t live without my kindle. I love to read historical fiction! I just finished a great book called Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly, which was inspired by the life of  a real world war II heroine. I also enjoy a good love story!

Any exciting upcoming projects or collaborations we should be on the lookout for?

Looking forward to spring wedding season starting soon! One of my 2017 spring weddings was featured on Artfully Wed in September!

Thanks again for sharing your time and talent with us, Linda! I love hearing how a keen interest led you to develop your passion into the successful business it is today and look forward to capturing your florals as part of future Urban Row couples’ weddings!!

What types of vendors are YOU interested in learning more about? Questions about all the things event designers/planners have a hand in? Looking for an experienced caterer that can accommodate dietary restrictions while still presenting a deliciously unique and memorable menu for you and your guests?

Send me an email and let me know the vendor spotlights to focus on moving forward (naomi@urbanrowphoto.com)! I love collaborating and sharing my experiences with the most talented, local Baltimore wedding industry pros I’ve worked with and meeting new ones to learn from!

xoxo,
Naomi

best of 2017: urban row by the numbers!

As we quickly approach the official start of 2018, I couldn’t help but TRY to get one last blog post up… eeeeeek! If I’m making any resolutions whatsoever, it’s to check more blog posts off my list. Annie’s face says it all:

Considering I’m WAY behind in sharing all the beautiful love that made up Urban Row’s 2017 weddings and engagements, I’m going to spread the love out over a few summary posts in the coming days/weeks before I get to the full posts! …you’re welcome. 😉

We had a lot of milestone firsts this year, including traveling to Italy to document Maggie + Ben’s Cinque Terre wedding in May – an amazing trip in SO. MANY. WAYS!

urban-row-photo-cinque-terre-wedding-photographer_0015We welcomed 3 times as many URP couples to the family as we did in 2016… and 2018 is right on track with record numbers, a booth at 2 bridal shows/venue open houses in January, a super exciting new brand aesthetic to be revealed, an updated and revamped bridal guide hitting mailboxes soon for our 2018 couples and lots of behind-the-scenes business education efforts being invested in…!urban-row-photo-cinque-terre-wedding-photographer_0014I can’t wait to see where 2018 takes us! I’m so crazy excited to make creative magic behind the camera at new venues and returning to established ones, with new lovebirds and recent newlyweds heading towards the first anniversary and with the help of experienced vendors and new movers and shakers in the always evolving wedding industry… CHEERS to making memories together!!!

nicole + bryan | american visionary art museum wedding | baltimore wedding photographer

It’s hard to describe how much of a connection I felt with Nicole + Bryan as I got to know such wonderful people… I miss them so much now that their day is over, but luckily, have these photos to share and relive each and every adorable moment, expression and glance! Their love is so genuine and gentle, honest and playful… throughout their engagement and wedding day, it was so obvious how in love they are and perfect for each other!!

We chatted about our love for Charm City during our first meeting, laughed our way along the waterfront during their engagement photos (and here, see their feature on United with Love!) and made the most of their incredibly romantic and elegant wedding day at the American Visionary Art Museum – one of my FAVORITE places in Baltimore!

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0021

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0033

Never let a drizzly day get you down… these moments go to show you how much fun umbrellas and diffused light can be!

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0041

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0019

but first… I’m stilllllllll SWOONING over Nicole’s details!

This may be one of my favorites of the day… absolutely filled with pure joy!!!

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0023

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0025

I loved how perfectly Nicole chose bridesmaid dresses that coordinated with the American Visionary Art Museum’s mosaic colors!! And then her sister/MOH’s dress being patterned yet in the same color family – so fun, unique and a dress that can be worn again…? win, Win, WIN!

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0026

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0024

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0029

We made sure to have time to sneak upstairs without guests seeing us before the ceremony, to capture more romantic portraits (ps – there can never be enough if you ask me!)… the catwalk of the AVAM has amazing light that pours through the small window openings!

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0031

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0032

I love seeing the unique angles my second shooter captures while I’m down on the ground and in the ceremony action! How many couples can say their ceremony includes a fluffy pink poodle named Fifi, a hot air balloon and an elephant (can you spot them all below?)!

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0034

I can’t get over how GORGEOUS Nicole’s cathedral veil is!! She only wore it during the ceremony since it was drizzling outside during our portrait time… I just love how much more romantic it made this moment!

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0035

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0036

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0040

Who knew umbrellas made things so romantic? 🙂

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0042

The inside of the JVRC banquet room is such a special space – it doesn’t need much decoration to make it shine! The warmth of the brick was highlighted with some simple uplighting and the exposed wood structure was the perfect backdrop for their elegant ivory and light blue hydrangea tablescapes.

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0043

The speeches were so heartfelt and heartwarming, I just loved seeing Nicole + Bryan reacting to her sister and his best friend’s words! And how neat is that “guest book” idea to use a framed print of Baltimore?!

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0044

 

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0046

Is there a contest for cutest grandma dancing photo that I could enter this into? Because I’m pretty sure this one would win… 🙂

urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0048

Ice cream, popsicles and the prettiest cake by WinniE’s Bakery add up to one of my favorite cake cutting shots; Nicole + Bryan’s faces say it all!!

Group photos? I say the larger the better… let’s do this, friends!!
urban-row-photo-avam-wedding_0057

Rather than using sparklers for their exit, Nicole’s mom planned an exit that used LED wands and allowed for such a fun and interactive way to send off the newlyweds! I loved this ‘Charm Car‘ golf cart that brought us to our iconic night portrait locations!!

mandi + miles | legg mason wedding | baltimore wedding photographer

I always love to hear the words my couples use to describe their wedding day vision when we meet for the first time… I’ll never forget when Mandi + Miles answered “modern, fun… a really good party for our guests” and oh yeah, a touch of classy rowdiness. 😉 Which is exactly how I’d describe one of the most memorable moments of their Legg Mason Tower wedding (heck probably of our 2017 season): when Mandi ICED Miles…!!!

urban-row-photo-legg-mason-wedding_0040

And he took it like the champ he is. 🙂

urban-row-photo-legg-mason-wedding_0041

Since their first date was in July and they got engaged lakeside in Orlando in July, they obviously had to get married in July. To have a July wedding in Baltimore takes a certain tolerance for heat and humidity, but this year was different: it was absolutely beautifully temperate with a slight breeze off the water.

urban-row-photo-legg-mason-wedding_0016

Hold up… let’s backup to the start of the day with the most exquisite Martina Liana wedding dress, rich emerald details and the BEST groomsmen gifts ever!

A wedding at the Legg Mason Tower in Harbor East means incredible harbor views out of the glass walls and a ballroom easily transformed into an intimate and romantic space with the use of draping, beautiful uplighting and patterned table linens that pulled it all together.

Speaking of style… #squadgoals x 1,000!!

urban-row-photo-legg-mason-wedding_0034

In case you wanted me to try, I don’t have enough words to describe how hard the ladies of Lemon & Lime Event Design worked to setup the 180+ calligraphy-ed champagne escort cards (gorgeously done by mlc design!) quietly in a matter of minutes… they are wedding wizards and always laughing, smiling and dancing throughout the organized chaos! I love, love, love working with them and can’t recommend them enough. To all of my #urpbrides, do yourself a favor and HIRE THEM.

Another vendor recommendation comin’ at ya: Go-Go Gadjet will ROCK your party and keep people talking about the *concert* I mean… wedding dance party they attended, for MONTHS to come!!! They were insanely entertaining but I’ll spare you more words about the drum show part of their performance and instead, let the photos speak for themselves. 😉
