I first met Robin in my Annapolis studio just a few short days after she initially reached out wanting to work together. I knew from the very moment I read her email that we were meant to be, but when she walked through the doors and we started chatting it was so quickly solidified. Robin and Brian’s impeccable taste, style, calm nature and unique vision had be hooked.
I knew this wedding was going to be a special one from A to Z. And that it was!
R&B have a love for all things Italy, and for their day they wanted their guests to feel all the love and tranquility about their favorite place to travel together. So we started to plan the perfect balance between a rustic Italian inspired day meets the industrial vibes of the Mt. Washington Mill Dye House. One of my favorite elements of this wedding is how we incorporated their love story, and love for Italian culture into each element of the day. R&B’s poise and elegance was not to be missed though! We kept things refined and detailed, just as they are. Their guests dined at family style tables named after their favorite Italian cities, topped with antipasti trays and hand torn bread for an authentic feel. Followed by an Italian entree that made mouths water just by the smell. I can smell it now…YUM! Shortly after, they danced the night away under a cascading green draped ceiling and cut a beautiful olive oil cake complimented with hand made cannoli. We had several custom pieces made to intertwine their modern style with love for vintage authenticity. Their settees that surround the dance floor, antique door cake display, floating chuppah and hand torn paper details just to name a few.
I could go on and on about the details, but I will let the photos speak for themselves.
Robin and Brian, thank you for allowing me to bring your dream vision to life. It was such an honor to work with you, and now call you life long friends!
