A Glamorous Annapolis Westin Wedding that Pulled out all the Stops!

Meagan and Sean were a young couple in love and starting their life together was going to be a celebration of a lifetime! Guests were coming in from all across the country and the Mother of the Bride wanted to ensure it would be “an event of a lifetime!” From the custom gift bags for guests including a private self labeled wine and a personalized cook book from the couple to the decadently elegant mirrored head table and the groom’s custom cigar bar built off the side terrace to the second line processional to the custom made mardi gras float at the end of the night — THIS was the event of a lifetime that pulled out all the stops. It was so much fun working with this family and the Westin Annapolis to plan the event of a lifetime for this family & their guests!

Crystal and Orchid Head Table

The couple met in New Orleans and because of that, the city always held a special place in their heart. They thought it would be fun to bring a little bit of The Big Easy to Annapolis and we had a New Orleans themed cocktail hour complete with a french quarter area with a custom tree bar and authentic Jazz grouping. We had custom screens flanking the bar showing images from earlier in the day for guests to enjoy while getting a drink at our 32 foot long mahogany oak bar in the foyer. Once guests moved into the ballroom, it was timeless upscale elegance all the way with sparkle, bling, and stunning florals. We wanted to make a head table to remember so we custom crafted a 32 foot truss and then suspended alternating strands of white orchids and crystals from it. Below was a 24 foot long pristine mirrored head table with stunning arrangements and elegant crystal stemware, beautiful bone white chargers, and custom chocolate menus in its own keepsake box! The special touches were out of this world on this event and guests left knowing the couple put a lot of thought into each detail.

Meagan & Sean, it was our pleasure to bring your fantasy to reality and create an event all will remember for a lifetime! Wishing you many years of continued happiness and fond memories of your amazing day!
