The Belvedere

Baby, it's Cold Outside. 

I'm not sure if there's a more romantic setting for winter weddings than the historic Belvedere Hotel. Kirsten Marie Photography captured it so perfectly. 

This radiant gem, Katie, is from out of state and she and her now husband wanted an amazing space to show off Baltimore to their friends and family.

Katie's request when it came to flowers: no boring roses, and lots of greenery and texture. 

The hand-dyed ribbon from Silk & Willow became her "something blue." 

And we loaded the bouquets up with one of my favorite winter flowers: anemones.

Katie & Jon loved the look of garland down the aisle, but guests needed to access their chairs from the center, so we draped garland down the chairs instead. 

*insert tears every time I see the father/daughter pics*

Wintry whites and greens for the low centerpieces.

Magnolia "trees" for the tall centerpieces. 

Just look at these two. "There's bound to be talk tomorrow..."

Wishing you all a flame of joy.
