Today’s couple was sent to us from our favorite planner, Angie Hilz,
from AJK Events! The groom is a meteorologist for the National Weather
Service in Annapolis and we sure had lots to talk about other than the
wedding. Their consultation came one day before the Polar Vortex, and
12 inches of snowfall! Speaking of their consultation, they were just
the sweetest, and held hands through the entire thing!
Every now and then we get a groom with bigger opinions than his bride,
and this was one of those cases. He just kept telling me that he wanted
lots of fragrance, that the smell of flowers in a room just made him happy
and he wanted to be able to smell them before he saw them. And when the
time came for him to see them, he wanted to SEE them! He was wanting a
big impact so we agreed to mix the pastels that the bride wanted with
the bright orange and fuchsia that the groom wanted! The results were
The setting for their wedding was in the beautiful rolling hills of Montgomery
County, MD. Their church, Cedar Ridge Community Church, has this gorgeous
lawn and a wonderful barn that housed the reception and dancing.
We used lots of stock, carnations and sweet smelling baby’s breath
for their big day! By mixing all those scents it created an intense floral
smell that was still soft and sweet to match them!
I adored the simplicity of their ceremony that was accented with bundles
of baby’s breath galore! And the weatherman couldn’t have
asked for a better day! It was cool, with a soft breeze just strong enough
to get the ribbon blowing. It was really beautiful!
