One of the most rewarding parts of my job is seeing not only my clients fully enjoying their big day, but also seeing the two families coming together. Even more rewarding is working with a family on more than one wedding! After working in April on the Williams wedding, I was contacted by the wife of Mrs. William's cousin. Frances & Paul Turner had a court ceremony in November 2009 and were planning a full blown ceremony and reception for all their friends & family in August 2011. Frances had been planning for over a year and half when I came in the picture for Day of Coordination and we had such a good time working together, I truly have the BEST clients.
Frances & Paul already had a great foundation for their wedding and had chosen some great vendors which made my job easier. The bride, her female relatives and the mother of the groom were pampered by Monica Cook Make Up Artistry and Silver Immersion, who worked their magic on the hair styling. The ceremony & reception were held at Notre Dame of Maryland University in Baltimore, MD and the caterer was the on-site SAGE Dining Services. I could not be more impressed with any particular aspect of this site- the Marikle chapel is breathtaking (see photos below), the site coordinators Bodga and Mo were amazing and the catering was delicious with a great staff to boot. Father Thomas Malia officiated the full Catholic mass complete with Philippine traditions to honor the bride's heritage. Elaine Bryant of Harp Shadows provided the ceremony music and the entire wedding day was captured by Beverly Lynn Photography. Decor was completed by the always amazing My Flower Box Events LLC who provided the gorgeous floral arrangements for the ceremony, reception and all family flowers.
The reception music and MC duties were handled by Walt of DJ Dunick who was kept the guests partying until midnight! Last but not least, the delicious wedding cake was crafted by Sweet Bakery Baltimore. All of this was made a success by having my fabulous sister, Jeanette Carmody, as my event assistant. There were so many great details it was hard to narrow down to this post, check the Felicity C Weddings facebook page for the complete album. I sincerely wish the Turners years of happiness and love!
