Sunday's wedding at the Grand Lodge was a perfect combination of the Bride's love for bright, sassy colors with her Mother's dream of subtle elegance.
Lauren and Dave were married in the upstairs chapel of the Lodge in a beautiful, romantic ceremony.
Guests then made their way downstairs to the cocktail hour full of bright pinks and greens. The sushi station was a huge hit. The staff from Linwoods Catering kept the bar lines moving and dazzled guests with an wonderful dinner. Our band, Spectrum, were full of energy and kept the crowd on the dance floor.
The ballroom decor was fresh and spring-y with a ribbon detail cloth in a cucumber green color from Table Toppers. The green dot hemstitch napkins were gathered with ribbon and accented with leaves. The napkins perfectly accented the gold ball charger from Party Rental.
The cake was from Snickerdoodles and was exactly what the bride requested. It was full of color, pattern, and fun.
After the cake cutting, guests enjoyed the chocolate fountain and ice cream bar. The dipped and drizzled chocolate over all sorts of treats.
The newlyweds ran through sparklers to make their exit and start their honeymoon.
Congratulations Lauren and Dave!

Ask your linen company about linen cocktail napkins instead of paper.
2. Water. The water for your guests is filtered water served from reusable pitchers. No bottled water there.
Want to go greener?
Instead of bottled water in their hotel hospitality bags, how about reusable bottles?
3. Transportation. If you're providing transportation for your guests. That's carpooling.
Want to go greener?
Rent a hybrid on your honeymoon.
4. Food. Many caterers use local products like Maryland Crab. Many also have a relationship with Maryland food banks for leftovers. That's great for the local economy too.
Want to go greener?
Ask about using more local growers or organic products.
So, you see, you're green already. Going green doesn't have to mean burlap after all!
