Modern with a splash of Purple


Amy and Adam were married on Saturday in a beautifully simple ceremony. They stood under a pretty cherry blossom and willow chuppah (designed by Christine at Fleur de Lis and Perkins Productions) with their parents, brothers, and sisters.

Although an earlier rain storm threatened to move the photo session indoors, the skies cleared and fabulous photographer Amy Deputy was able to photograph the bride and groom and wedding party on the amazing grounds of the Elkridge Furnace Inn.

The tent dazzled with cool cucumber green linens from Select Event Rentals and were accent by deep purple roses and hydrangea centerpieces in crystal bowls. Natural wood chivari chairs also from Select complimented the soft color pallette.
The bride's mom spent many weeks gathering beautiful picture frames (shown in the photo here) and a photo of each couple attending the wedding. Once assembled, the frame and photo served as both the escort card with a table assignment and a wedding favor. It might have been a lot of work to complete the project but the result was terrific and the talk of the wedding.

The couples wedding logo was designed by the bride's sister Carrie, a graphic artist and was repeated on the ceremony programs, menu cards, cocktail napkins, and chocolate chip cookie favor tags. It was a simple, modern element that showed Amy and Adam's simple aesthetic. The romantic decor was enhanced by the large lighted lanterns hung in the tent by the staff at Perkins Productions. They glowed all evening and managed to stay clear of the raised chairs during the Hora.

Guests dined at various food stations positioned throughout the tent until the talented Johnny Artis Band cranked it up and the dance floor was full to capacity. There was even a surprise performance by the 'Blues Brothers' - a one night only show led by Amy's father.

Congratulations Amy and Adam!
