Inspiration can come from a million different places but have you ever considered what you’re standing on right now? That’s where these two creative souls found their fit, with their favorite Turkish rug – and their two pups – and with that spark of style, they embarked on creating a wedding day perfectly suited to them. Michael and Carina captured it all, the rug, the pups and these two and the endless love between them – see it all in our Vault right this way!
From Michael and Carina… We photographed Laken and Michael’s gorgeous ballroom wedding at the Mt. Washington Mill- Dye House in Baltimore, Maryland on September 24th, 2016.
Laken and Michael were inspired by their beloved pups and their favorite Turkish rug for their wedding. They had a custom crest designed featuring their two dogs, as well as the colors of their Turkish rug. The indoor ceremony was held in a cozy space filled with greenery and candles, and the couple married standing on their rug. The reception space was a luscious display of hanging greenery, candles and golden accents.
Laken and Michael shared their first dance on their Turkish rug, to tie everything together.
The green, gold and blush color palette went perfectly with the unique stone architecture of the venue. Jenna and her team from Pop the Cork Designs realized their vision of a romantic and elegant setting with a neutral color palette perfectly and created a green-blush-gold wedding extravaganza. Laken wore an Amsale silk organza gown with a hand-pleated floral design skirt to go with her half-up half-down hairdo.
