Cheer and merriment were in the air the day this couple got married! It was the annual Charles Street St. Patrick's Day Parade in Baltimore! The couple had their ceremony and reception at the Tremont Grand, located in downtown Baltimore. Artful Weddings by Sachs Photography did an amazing job, as always, capturing the event. Amy, the bride, says "We loved Anne Sachs and her entire team; they made us feel like ours was the best wedding they had ever been to."
Amy's gorgeous gown was designed by Paloma Blanca. The bride's hair and make up were done by Baltimore Bridal Makeup, which Amy highly recommends. Christine of Fleur de Lis, provided the gorgeous flowers. She worked closely with Jon, the groom, who was in charge of all of the flowers and decor. Great job!
Jon planned an amazing proposal for Amy. He had both his mother and hers flown in for the event. With some elaborate planning, he proposed at the Brewer's Art (the location of their first date) in front of family. On one knee, he said, "You know that I’m not perfect; And God knows you’re not perfect. But nothing could be more perfect than us continuing to Live, Learn and Grow together. Make all my dreams come true… Will you marry me?" After many tears, Jon stood up and they embraced, he whispered "Does that mean yes?" She responded, "Yes." But, the surprises weren't over! After dinner, Jon led Amy downstairs to the dark bar area where she found about 20 of their closest friends (some from as far as New York) waiting to celebrate with them!
The amazing centerpieces included limes, peacock feathers, hydrangeas and ribbons, also from Fleur de Lis. Really beautiful! The cake was from Woodley Bakery. The custom cake topper, scuplted to resemble the couple's dog, came from Etsy. Lauren of the Tremont did a fabulous job of coordinating and taking care of the details. Jason of Absolute Entertainment was their DJ. Amy said, "he gave us the party we asked him for!" Amy also wanted my readers to know that their dance instructor, Demitri of Atlantic Ballroom, did an amazing job preparing them for their first dance!
Congratulations Amy & Jon!
