Listen to the stories of these Monaco marriages - learning endearing details from the relationship's initial spark to grand-finale details that capped off the big day.
Jenel + Anthony
On their initial blind date, Jenel and Anthony talked and laughed for hours. They then proceeded to hang out every day for the next two weeks — a sure sign that the timing was right and the connection solid. For their wedding, Baltimore proved the perfect city, and our hotel proved the ideal venue for their gold-and-black themed festivities.
Ben + Ryan
A match made, not by chance, but one that had been a long time coming thanks to two very close friends – Buthna and Tina. It was thanks to these mutual friends bringing them together at a surprise birthday party, that they realized there was a relationship to form. Fast-forward 8 years, Ben made the decision to propose to Ryan.
Courtney + Steve
Courtney and Steve met while working at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and knew they wanted a convenient Baltimore locale for their big day. After touring our “beautiful” hotel and learning about its alluring amenities, they deemed this the ideal spot for a New Year’s Eve’s celebration with all of their favorite people.
John + Jesse
John and Jesse met in New York City and after a quick cab ride downtown to a party, it was obvious they had a connection. Flash forward 8 years and they were planning their wedding. Together they decided that Hotel Monaco Baltimore was the perfect destination to say "I do."
Andrea + Tory
Andrea and Tory first connected while doing hallway and lunch duty together at their workplace. After two movie outings it became clear that something much bigger than friendship was brewing. The pair fell in love with our “beautiful venue” and staff members who truly care.
Dan + Sarah
Sarah and Dan met at a Thanksgiving party at the University of Virginia. Though both were dragged to the gathering by friends, the night took a fortuitous turn when Dan approached Sarah and immediately charmed her with his humor. Dan went home that night with some extra pumpkin pie, and both went home with a new crush that led to a true love story.
Joanna + Glenn
Joanna and Glenn are the best-case scenario of one matchmaker’s vision (who happens to be Joanna’s brother-in-law). The two joyfully celebrated their love during an elegant and intimate ceremony. The euphoric couple declares that everything — the music, the food, the ambiance of the evening — was exactly what they had in mind.
