Event Planner Notes

A Winter Wedding in Maryland


After 6 months of long distance planning, Deanna and Eric’s wedding day was finally here. Everyone gathered at Savage Manor for the rehearsal, and then it was off to one of Deanna’s Favorite restaurants…“Aida’s” for the pre-celebration dinner.

Deanna was a bit anxious because the weather forecast was calling for snow. We really did not want a repeat of the massive Maryland snowstorm just three weeks before. Friday morning dawned and snow had fallen overnight. But it was only a couple of inches so everything looked bright white and sparkling clean. Just enough so driving would not be a problem.

Hair and makeup for the bridal party started at 10:00 in the morning. I checked in with them at 1:00 pm and everyone looked great…we were on time! Next stop; pick up Deanna’s gown from the seamstress. Then it was time to change clothes, pack up the candles, menus, emergency kit and head out to Savage Manor.

Deanna arrived right on time, followed by Anne Sachs of Artful Weddings…and the photography began. Documenting the wedding and emotions of their guests was very important to Deanna and Eric. So immediately after the ceremony, we gathered the bridal party and guests for a group portrait. Then it was outside for some intimate photos of Deanna and Eric in the snow.

With a nod to the Military Traditions of both their families, the wedding cake was cut with a prized Marine Corps sword belonging to Deanna’s Father. Once their guests had a taste of delicious wedding cake from the Cake Studio, they were ready to dance the night away.
