Welcome back to the second part of Myaa and John’s wedding in Maryland. Their modern-inspired celebration combined creative DIY wedding décor with a venue shimmered in red and black. (And you’ll just have to check out their traditional Catholic wedding ceremony before you continue!) You can see all the prettiness captured by Mike Stog Photography right here…
From Myaa: We love the colors red and black and have an offbeat style so we wanted to showcase that in a classy way. We purposefully got married on Friday the 13th, for luck. It was very unique to us.
I made all of the centerpieces. We collected red wine bottles for about six months and asked those who attend the bridal shower to bring some as well. I bought the personalized labels from Etsy, ordered the beans that filled the bottles and candles, then hand made every fan
Myaa’s wedding planning advice for other DC-area couples:
Splurge on food if your budget allows. Six months later we still have people who tell us how much we enjoyed it!
