Real Inspiration: Dana & Adam

Dana and Adam had a "Baltimore-inspired" wedding.  From the colors, purple and orange, to an appearance by the Raven, this was a Charm City wedding! 
The beautiful couple had their wedding ceremony at Our Lady of Grace in Parkton, MD. The reception was on the same grounds at The Manor at Gunpowder Falls
The bride was given an adorable handmade personalized hanger at her bridal shower, the gift came from etsy.com.  Her purple satin shoes were by Me Too and from Zappos.com.  Her cuff bracelet came from ebay.com

The bride's gorgeous gown came from David's Bridal, its a Oleg Cassini.  Her veil was also from David's and her hairpiece was from Cake and Wedding Cottage.  The bridesmaid dresses, also from David's Bridal, were in the perfect "Raven's purple," technically called "Regency."  The bride's perfect hair and make-up were done by Sherri Leonzio and Tricia Siejack, respectively. You can check out the local David's Bridal in Glen Burnie, MD. 

The bride's rings are from Littman's in Towson and the groom's from Smyth in Timonium.  All of the flowers, including bouquets and corsages were done by Audrey Johns. They found Johns through their caterer, Sterling Caterers. The centerpieces were included as part of their catering package.
The cake came from Desserts by Gina, also part of their catering package.  Although, the couple chose to upgrade to fondant from a nominal fee.  I absolutely love the "Baltimore" props, provided by their photographer, Amy Hershey of Forever in a Flash Photography.  Hershey actually made the props!  You can view more of Hershey's work on her Facebook page.  The bride and groom were thrilled with all of their vendors!  They also recommend their videographer, Complete Music and Video, and their DJ, Premier Mobile DJ's

I asked Dana if she had any advice to give brides planning their weddings in the Baltimore area.  She said, "Reseach- a lot!  Attend bridal shows EARLY on - shortly after you get engaged.  Weddingbee is a good site to use to interact with other brides-to-be, find wedding stuff on sale, etc."  She also recommend Molly at David's Bridal.  She also wants you to know that  you can have a Baltimore-themed wedding anywhere, you don't have to pay the "downtown" prices.  Thanks for the advice!
Congratulations Dana & Adam!
