Hitched!!! Matt Wedding 2.19.11

As a professional first, I stepped into this wedding a mere 3 weeks ahead of the big day and I was so excited to find out that I would be working with two amazing vendors that I have had the pleasure of working with before, the caterers and the photographer.  Erin & Nick are a great couple who live on the border of Kentucky & Ohio although Erin is from Baltimore and Nick is from upstate New York.  They were ready to throw a big celebration years in the making and I am honored that I was a part of everything.  I first had the pleasure of meeting them at the rehearsal ceremony.  I worked very closely with the mother of the bride as well as phone meetings with Erin to get ready for her elegant February wedding day.  I must send a special shout out to my amazing event assistant/ co-coordinator, Christine Jermusyk, who really helped me make this incredible day possible.

There were so many beautiful, personalized and well thought out details to this wedding.  The wedding party and families all got ready at Hotel Monaco which is a truly spectacular place for photos.  The couple choose to have a first look session and it was as beautiful watching in person as the images below.  As a wedding surprise to Erin, the bride's parents surprised her by renting a vintage white rolls royce from City Lights to take her and her father to the ceremony.  The couple was very thoughtful to book a shuttle to take their wedding party to the ceremony and then to the reception, courtesy of Z Best Limo's.  Erin and Nick choose the breathtaking chapel at St Paul's School, where Erin had gone to high school.  For the reception, they selected Baltimore's 1840's Ballroom as their venue which really set the stage for the amazing night ahead.   The amazing venues along with the wedding party and guests were captured by Jacqueline Schlossman Photodocumentary who I cannot say enough good things about.  We all lucked out that the day was warmer than expected for mid-February and the wind made for some great images. 

The reception was catered by Sascha's Catering who have worked at the 1840's Ballroom many times and as always, exceeded all expectation with the setup, presentation, food & drink and their entire staff.  The decor was complemented by the bride's aunt's company, the florists of The Flower Cart.  Having a relative involved in the planning process made it that much more enjoyable for Erin & Nick and all the floral arrangements were stunning.  The live party band Character Zoo handled the music & MC duties for the entire reception and they really made the party come alive.  Erin &Nick had first seen Character Zoo at a friend's wedding and were so excited to book them for their own big day.  Enjoy these photos and please check Felicity C Weddings' Facebook page for the whole photo album.
