Kimie & Mario’s Modern, Grey & Orange Wedding at American Visionary Arts Museum

No Comments

As far as Baltimore wedding venues go, it’s hard to beat the American Visionary Arts Museum. And though I am probably biased because one of my favorite weddings that I worked last year, happened here, Kimie & Mario’s modern, gray & orange wedding here is just another reason to love this venue. I LOVE their bold grey and orange color palette, and it worked really well in the exposed brick space. Check out all their fun details below in this real Maryland wedding feature!

We met about 7 1/2- 8 years ago at a local bar through mutual friends. I was just out of a long term serious relationship with my sons father. Of course I was attracted to him with his good looks and sweet dance moves. But he is a genuine, kind, caring, funny and a all around good guy. But what made me love him even more was how he not only treated me but the way he was/is with my son.

At that time Mario wasn’t even 21 ( I know we met in the bar ;) ) and I never would of thought that a guy would take on what he did. He treats him as if he was his own. He proposed on December 24th 2011. He came home from a Ravens game and I was surrounded by gifts to wrap. Like every year we exchange one gift on Christmas Eve, usually pjs. I opened mine and it was a beautiful album filled with pictures throughout the years of us dating. I got to a certain page which was blank and turned it and it said “Our Engagement” and he tugged on my arm and asked me to marry him.

As far as the design of our wedding. We are Os fans so used the orange and grey not only for that but to be a little different from the usual wedding colors. We wanted something more modern.

Jess & Jeff’s FUN Richmond, VA Wedding at Main Street Station

2 Comments

“Jess and Jeff wanted their wedding to be a party in all senses of the word, and they definitely succeeded!”

Fun.

That was one of the main words that Andy & I kept coming back to when we started thinking about the type of wedding we wanted to have. We are fun people – we like fun, and the reception is supposed to be a celebration. So, let’s make our wedding FUN!

Ever since then, I have found myself gravitating towards couples that have that similar vibe and vision for their wedding. Fortunately Jen + Ashley Photography submitted this awesomely fun Richmond, VA to me via Two Bright Lights … and yes, it’s a FUN wedding.

From the photographers, Jen + Ashley:

Did they have gorgeous details? Yep! Their wedding was elegant, gorgeous, and so classy. Main Street Station provided the perfect background- historic, classy, interesting and unique. But they also had something which I think can get so lost during the craziness and pressure of planning a perfect wedding…FUN.

Jess + Jeff (or “Jeffica” as their friends affectionately call them) set out with two things in mind for their wedding day. Getting married (duh), and having fun.

About the couple:

Jeff and I actually both went to Rutgers, but we didn’t meet until two years post-undergrad at a mutual friend’s birthday party in New York City! He went to HS senior prom with her (platonically), she was my friend from college…and fate took care of the rest in December of 2006 :)

Jeff and I are always on a mission to let loose and enjoy our time with friends.

About their wedding:

We were determined to make our wedding personal, unique and nothing but fun for our guests.

From our program teaching guests how to pronounce words in Hebrew (pretend like you’re hocking a loogie!)  to cake “shots” instead of a formal wedding cake, we wanted to show everyone that our wedding could be personal and heartfelt but silly and fun all at the same time.

The biggest compliment we’ve received from our friends is that our wedding “couldn’t have been anyone elses…it was so personal and so ‘Jeffica.'”

That, and our playlist of 90s hip hop kept EVERYONE on the floor all night!
