Elegant, Vintage-Inspired Evergreen Museum & Library Wedding | Liesl & Daniel

Liesl and Danny’s Labor Day weekend wedding was filled with real emotion and joy as they started their new chapter together. It was so wonderful to see Liesl and Danny reunited, given that the majority of the planning process he had been deployed overseas serving our country. I loved working with Liesl and her sweet mom Kris to perfectly curate each detail for this wedding. They have such fabulous taste and were totally willing to be creative and think outside the box, which for me as their wedding planner was a dream!

Our design inspiration came from Liesl’s vision of old world Jane Austen and fairy magic, and the Evergreen Museum & Library in Baltimore was the perfect venue to make it happen. Effortlessly elegant was the name of the game! Neutral, soft colors, lots of greenery and pops of dusty blue were just so stunning in this setting.

Guests were invited to arrive 30 minutes prior to the ceremony start for welcome cocktails (always a great idea in my book!), and then headed through Evergreen’s sprawling manicured gardens to witness the happy couple’s I do’s. For their reception in Evergreen’s Carriage House, an epic floral installation by Steelcut Flower Co. served as a backdrop for the head table, along with wreaths of soft greenery floating above guests’ tables. Vintage-inspired furniture pieces and tabletop details completed the look. The celebration continued well into the night with dinner and dancing, plus a tarot card reader to boot!

Elegant Maryland Country Club Wedding - Megan & Mike

My 2017 wedding season kicked off with Megan and Mike, and it couldn't have been a more amazing start to the year. When I think about absolute dream clients, honestly these two are it. Not only are they so in love and perfect together; but so caring, appreciative and genuine with every interaction and decision we made throughout the planning process (not to mention they are a ridiculously gorgeous couple!). I still remember how much I loved Megan's story about how she met Mike and his proposal, which I'll share a snippet from here:

"Mike and I met our senior year at the University of Maryland. My sorority sister and roommate knew him, and finally realized her two 'science nerd' friends should meet. We ended up in the same class for the first time that fall, became lab partners, and the rest is history! The proposal was so thoughtful and quite the weekend event. He tricked me into going back on campus for a basketball game, and as we walked through the plaza outside of where we had that lab together, he got down on one knee."

Megan and Mike's wedding day at Woodmont Country Club was absolutely gorgeous from start to finish. From their wooden chuppah with lush garlands and floral cascade; to Mike's grandfather and Megan's bridesmaid/sorority sister co-officiating the ceremony; to the romantic, elegant garden inspired reception design; it was something dreams are made of! District Remix had guests on a packed dance floor all night, beginning with the hora (seriously so fun!). It was a celebration full of love and merriment, and such an honor to be a part of.
