Forget about June, around here, March was the month for weddings. At least it is when it comes to our employees. On Saturday March 9th Lindsey WittstrucK celebrated her marriage to Matthew Satterfield in a small, sweet ceremony in Millersville, and then on Saturday March 23 Stephanie Faudale celebrated her marriage to Sean Connor in an elegant ceremony at Arundel Mills Preserve. Since we love to showcase beautiful brides wearing our beautiful dresses, it gives us great pleasure to spotlight these two weddings on our bridal blog.
The weather was surprisingly gorgeous for Lindsey’s early March wedding. In fact, rumors of an impending snowstorm had the bride very nervous in the days before the wedding, but when guests filtered into the old town hall the sun was shining and it felt almost like early summer. Vintage suitcases and old typewriters lined the entryway, and inside the one-hundred-fifty year-old hall, antique glass collected from thrift stores sparkled around flickering tea lights.
Bridesmaids walked down the aisle in mismatched lace dresses on the arms of groomsmen in simple black suits. The bride and all her maids clutched beautiful bouquets of hand-knit flowers with a tissue or two tucked in just in case. The bride and groom read their own vows from strips of quilling paper as they stood on stage beneath a curtain of sparkling lights and a large paper heart. The ceremony concluded in happy tears and a string quartet version of Here Comes the Sun. Guests filed back out onto the front lawn of the hall where they mingled with the wedding party and were served appetizers.
After they re-entered the hall the celebration really began. The bride and groom started things off with a little air guitar and invited all their guests to join in their first dance as George Harrison questioned over the speakers “what is my life without your love?” A dinner of crab cakes and pesto tortellini was soon served as guests sipped on champagne and listened to friends toast the happy couple. From there guests danced non-stop as the five-hour reception roared on under dimmed chandeliers. Below is a sneak peek of some of their photographs taken by Colleen Losh of Colleen Losh Photography. Stay tuned for all the details on Stephanie’s wedding in our next post!
