A NEW YEAR’S EVE BALTIMORE WEDDING

A wedding story full of love, laughter & new beginnings

Courtney and Steve, who met while working at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, happily chose our convenient Baltimore hotel for their New Year’s Eve festivities. The ceremony, held in the Paris Ballroom, featured gold Chiavari chairs, a white aisle runner, and vases filled with white orchids and floating candles. They wanted their ceremony — described as “beautiful and full of laughter”— to be light but meaningful. Their parents held onto each ring to give it a blessing, before presenting them to Courtney and Steve for the ring exchange. During cocktail hour, Courtney and Steve enjoyed a few moments of private time before joining all their loved ones for the party of a lifetime. That night, they stayed at Kimpton Hotel Monaco Baltimore before being whisked off to their Dominican Republic honeymoon.

Courtney stayed at the hotel the night before the wedding (as did her bridesmaids). During a private moment the next morning, she read her note from Steve—unbeknownst to her, at the same time Steve was reading his note from her. In a moment of unplanned serendipity, they texted one another right afterward.

“Everyone was so wonderful to work with, and we both knew it was going to be a great experience.”

“The food was excellent and everyone always had a drink in their hands.”

A favorite moment for the couple: Steve doing his classic “knee slide” across the dance floor, and him and his dad getting on their backs to do the “gator.”

The festive crew rang in the New Year by cutting the cake, an ideal way to culminate a “perfect” night.
