Working on Kerri & Steve’s Mt. Washington Mill-Dye House wedding was a dream! It’s not often a client’s taste and style matches yours exactly but that was the case with this couple! The Mill-Dye House is a new venue in Baltimore and was a blank canvas for creating the romantic, cozy and garden inspired wedding of Kerri’s dreams. “We knew we wanted a raw space that we could bring to life and put our stamp on. We fell in love with the Mt. Washington Mill Dye House and knew it was the one as soon as we saw it. “

With a neutral palate featuring wooden, linen and metallic accents the space came alive thanks to the amazing florals and several installations from Sweet Root Village. The ceiling was adorned with greenery chandeliers to cozy up the raw space. The wooden head table featured a horizontal greenery installation and gauzy linen runner. There ceremony and cocktail hour were held in the courtyard outside of the wedding on a balmy September evening — complete with a custom wooden bar, loose organic greenery and a beautiful draped ceremony installation. Guests danced all night under twinkle lights — grabbing drinks from a beautiful (huge!) vintage bar.

A Bridal Shoot Inspired by Old World Europe

What do you get when you combine the vibes of Old World Europe with the modern, chic design sensibilities of Eventi Floral & Events? This inspiration shoot, that’s what. Go ahead and get comfortable, because we’re pretty sure you’ll want to stay in this gallery a good, long while.

From Eventi Floral & Events… We went into the shoot dreaming of Old World Europe peppered with modern touches so the Tuscan feel of Stone Tower Winery was the perfect location. The loose and organic bridal bouquet, the lace detailing on the dress, and the embroidered suede ballet flats kept things soft and romantic.

At the same time, we wanted to anchor the tablescape so we used a heavier velvet linen paired with metal and wood café chairs. Some extra special elements were the mini cheesecakes provided by Heirloom DC at each guest’s place settings as well as the vintage knife rests.

Vintage Meets Modern in this ’20s Inspired Wedding

Designed around the idea of “vintage nostalgia with a modern spin”, Emily and Patrick’s wedding day deserves a style category all its own. Think Southern elegance with a touch of roaring ’20s glam, and bold black and white stripes for a modern punch. Graham Terhune worked his magic behind the camera and we have the entire affair right at your fingertips.

From the Bride & Groom… Emily and Patrick met on Labor Day weekend of 2014; ten days after Patrick had moved to Raleigh for a job in the tech industry. A mutual friend was in town, and so over cheerwine and brownies in Emily’s sister’s kitchen, sparks began to fly. Emily, an illustrator and owner of Emily Brooks Designs, accepted Patrick’s request for a tour of Raleigh after he had seen a recent map she had drawn for a local magazine. Two days later, they went on their first date at Poole’s Diner, which they would recreate a year and a half later for their engagement photos. Patrick popped the question the day before Thanksgiving before they were to drive up to Virginia to celebrate the holiday with his family.

When planning for the wedding, they knew they wanted to incorporate their loves for their home states in the details. The Save the Date was the first nod to this – a watercolor of Virginia and North Carolina, with the star over both the groom’s hometown of Salem and the bride’s hometown of Raleigh. The color palette for the wedding was pulled from a textile project Emily had created while in New York based on a Vermeer painting. The rich hunter green was paired with a light blush pink, along with the accents of black, white, and gold. Both the ceremony, held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, and the reception, held at the North Carolina Museum of Art were blank canvases, as both are mostly a brilliant white; both inside and out. Patrick and Emily loved both traditional and modern spaces, so these two venues were a perfect melding of worlds. Their love for vintage nostalgia with a modern spin was expressed through the bride’s Jenny Packham dress, which fit Emily’s desire to have a 1920’s era feeling gown.

She had always loved her great grandmother’s look on her wedding day; especially her grand bouquet with tiny flowers tied into rich cream colored streamers flowing to the ground. Her florist was able to recreate a vintage airy garden bouquet with roses, hypericum berries, lisianthus, tuberoses, chocolate Queen Ann’s lace, and trailing vines of jasmine and passion flower. Patrick wore a peak lapel tuxedo and Res Ipsa black suede formal loafers. The nod to a vintage feel also extended into the traditional silhouette portraits of the two of them; the original print was matted and signed by guests, and was also seen on some of their wedding weekend paper goods.

Emily’s calligraphy was seen throughout the details; from the invitation suite to the ceremony programs, to the reception signage. She also created a map of Raleigh that was put in boxes for guests, that were filled with sweet and savory snacks from North Carolina and Virginia. The map was also put into use through the mobile app that Patrick created for guests, with a wedding weekend schedule and places to check out in Raleigh. To bring in more of a cabana feel to the reception, monstera leaves, palms, black and white striped runners, and white paper lanterns were used throughout the indoor and outdoor spaces.

From the Bride… While Patrick and I were planning our wedding we wanted to exude “classic elegance.” While we currently live in Chicago, where Patrick is from, I am from NEPA, so we wanted to combine both a warm and welcoming vibe with some city chic as we molded our backgrounds and our lives together. With this in mind, we fell in love with the Westmoreland Club in Wilkes-Barre,PA, a historic brownstone in the city center. Keeping the classic elegance in mind, we chose a neutral palette of ivory and blush with silver accents. We chose to have our wedding under the clubs white tent which allowed us to add in the extra details we so loved such as the crystal chandeliers and allowed our guests to enjoy the warm summer breeze. I wore a Pronovias gown and lace veil with Christian Louboutin shoes. Patrick wore designer Joseph Abboud, while the bridesmaids were dressed in Bill Levkoff.
