European-inspired Museum Wedding in Baltimore
Forget wedding trends and the latest must-haves, just for a moment, and picture the beauty in old school romance full of style and class. That's what we're sharing today in this beautiful Baltimore wedding, designed by international wedding planner East Made Co.
Katherine and Jared wed at the European-inspired, pastel yellow venue of Evergreen Museum and Library in Baltimore, Maryland. Immediately inspired by the French chateau feeling of Evergreen, Elizabeth from East Made Co suggested an infusion of classic French elements into Katherine and Jared’s wedding design while still evoking a modern, New York chic feel. A muted color palette of grey, lavender, cream, and gold enhanced the juxtaposition of these styles and created an underlying calm mood for the day.
The couple got ready at the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Baltimore, overlooking the Inner Harbor. Katherine’s mom helped her into her Oscar de la Renta gown, which was designed in a traditional silhouette with a modern twist of a back-of-skirt flounce detail. Katherine was escorted down the aisle by both of her parents to 'Tale as Old As Time,' performed by a live string trio. Jared’s sister officiated the ceremony, infusing thoughtful anecdotes with humor and sentiment. The couple recessed to the classic Stevie Wonder song, 'Signed, Sealed, Delivered.'
Guests were welcomed to cocktail hour with a champagne display, and learned of their table seating from a French flower market-inspired seating display, with baskets and lavender. The bar menu was also hand-calligraphed on a Provence-inspired ceramic urn for another French touch.
Lovers of history and tradition, the couple also took photos with a vintage Rolls Royce, a nod to so many weddings and parties past that have been held at this historic venue. A favorite moment of the day was when Katherine and Jared shared their first dance outdoors to 'Perfect Duet' by Ed Sheeran and Beyonce. As the sun set on the glowing back patio of Evergreen, they invited their friends and family to join them.
