A Wedding at the Walters

Place: Walters Art Gallery – Mt. Vernon Subdivision of Downtown Baltimore
Service: Non-denominational
Guests: 150

They met while at orchestra practice. He plays the violin and she plays the cello. When they decided to marry, they wanted to host this marvelous affair at one of the most picturesque venues in downtown Baltimore. Their short ceremony took place in the front gallery amongst stone columns and astute statues. As guests looked on, they heard just the faint whispers of a trickle from a fountain that served as the backdrop to the ceremony. While guests were upstairs enjoying cocktails among millions of dollars of Italian artwork, we were downstairs transforming the center gallery from ceremony to reception. The large burgundy centerpieces containing ginger swept the high ceilings, and the finishing touches on the lighting were made. Guests came down a grand-staircase to enjoy a lavish 5 course meal, while sharing in a slide show that was put together by the Bride and Groom’s good friend. Instead of a wedding cake being the center of the room, the Bride and Groom opted to do away with the traditional and bring in the pies, peach and apple to be exact, made by the renowned chef who catered the event. The pies were a hit; the guests flocked to them in awe! Dancing closed this truly elegant event.
