Kicking off our Tuesday with a lovely Maryland wedding courtesy of ZADesignz [submitted via Two Bright Lights]. Shani and Jeff had a lovely outdoor wedding ceremony at the Mount Airy Mansion, in Upper Marlboro, MD. Her reception was very elegant, with some DIY touches, hand-making wedding details like the table numbers, favors, place cards, and napkin holders. Shani & Jeff chose a beautiful, light & summery color palette with pink and peach!
Shani & Jeff’s Pink & Peach Mount Airy Mansion Wedding in Maryland
We got engaged January 26, 2011. I had an exam earlier that morning and Jeff was going to treat me to dinner to celebrate my months of studying. I was rushing to meet him at his home so we could drive to the restaurant together. I was worried we might be late for dinner. I remember he was not rushing. In fact he was standing still and smiling at me. I remember saying, “Come onnnnn! Aren’t we going to be late?!” He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was perfect. We then enjoyed a romantic dinner at a poetry lounge followed by watching a play.
About the Wedding:
Our wedding was held at Mt. Airy Mansion in Upper Marlboro, MD. We chose this venue because both the mansion and the landscape epitomized the setting for a storybook wedding. The secluded historic mansion is nestled in 1000 acres of woods. Much of the beauty was provided by the natural greenery of shrubs, canopies of oak trees and the enchanting magic of weeping willows.
We exchanged our vows in a sunken garden.
