We’re back with part two of Angy and Michael’s stunning Baltimore wedding from Readyluck. After their wedding ceremony, Angy and her bridesmaids changed into saris as a nod to her Indian heritage for the reception at Enoch Pratt Library. Appropriately playing off of the library venue, they incorporated books into their centerpieces and table numbers in the utmost elegant of ways. Check it out!
From Angy: I really loved being able to incorporate both American wedding clothing along with Indian clothing as well. I really loved my wedding dress and my bridesmaids’ dresses that we wore for the ceremony. But I think I loved the saris we wore for the reception even more! It was especially cool that my mom made the half-sari outfits for all of my bridesmaids.
My favorite memory is just being out on the dance floor with my husband and all of my closest family and friends. At that point all the stress was over, and it felt just like one big amazing party.
We wanted to make sure the food was great. We both love to cook and go out to eat, so we wanted to make sure that people really enjoyed their meal.
Angy’s advice to other DC-area couples:
Consider non-traditional venues. We were so thrilled to have our reception at the Pratt Library. Luckily we had been to fundraising events there before and knew that the lobby could become a great event space. People constantly asked us how we managed to get that space- as if it was something very difficult. It wasn’t, we just asked! Also, listen to your gut when meeting with vendors, especially catering managers. Regina at Rouge was so fantastic and eliminated a lot of stress from the wedding day because I knew I could trust her to get everything done.
