Although I may be a teensy bit biased, I can’t help but believe SMP brides are the absolute best. There’s an intuitive sense of style our brides seem to effortlessly infuse into their weddings that simply can’t compare. And when that bride just happens to be the owner of her own Baltimore bridal boutique, and brought on The Floral Studio and Elizabeth Bailey to help craft her dream day, you know this wedding will deliver. Get ready to gush over all the beautiful imagery by A Bryan Photo waiting for you in the full gallery right here.
From the The Floral Studio… When Mia first approached me about doing her wedding flowers, I couldn’t have been more flattered. After all, Mia is the owner of Garnish Boutique, one of Baltimore’s most exclusive bridal boutiques and she happens to have an exquisite sense of style. There is no greater compliment within the industry than when colleagues choose to work with you on their own wedding day.
Mia and Christian wanted to create an event that blended Mia’s southern roots with Christian’s maritime passion and the day was full of special touches that included a southern Baptist choir in their colorful choir robes that escorted the guests from the ceremony to the reception and the charming goldfish that were in all of the floral centerpieces—and subsequently released to a friend’s pond!
The Belmont Conference Center, a beautiful estate in Maryland, was the venue for both the tented ceremony and the reception and also hosted the entire bridal party and both families for the entire wedding weekend. Chelle papery created the dragonfly-themed invitations (reminiscent of the dragonflies that were drawn to the marina where they first met) and paper goods, including the adorable parasols that the flower girls carried. Mia’s color palette of cream and a shade of orange-peach was as refreshing on a warm summer day as a dish of cold sherbert, and the perfect color choice for chasing away the morning rain that gave way to a beautiful sunny wedding day!
