I miss this couple. Good thing we have plans at the Tiki Barge next week (high five)!
When I originally received Christina’s inquiry it was extremely formal. I am pretty sure she addressed it “Dear Mrs. Reynolds”. She said she wanted a Baltimore wedding but wasn’t sure of what else. I was a little nervous to meet them but I prepared for the meeting by gathering some information about venues. I knew, even before the meeting, that I was dying to work at Mt. Washington Mill Dye House…it has so much potential!
Apparently I spoke Christina’s love language because I told her and Andrew to meet me at Starbucks. We chatted a bit about the wedding and she knew she wanted an indoor forest/garden as her theme. I then asked her the golden question: “Have you looked at venues yet?” FRIENDS, she slide across a picture of Mt. Washington Mill Dye House and said that was really the only one she had looked at and she loved it. The skies opened and the angels sang. Ok, just kidding but I knew right at that exact moment (never mind all the great conversations leading up to that point) that these were my ideal clients. We had such an incredible relationship all throughout the planning process and were totally in sync the entire time. They were relaxed, in love, knew what they wanted, and had such genuine joy leading up to their wedding day. The wedding day was amazing. We nailed the indoor forest theme! Her friends and family were so gracious and had such a great time at the wedding. Honestly, I would plan this wedding again and again and again…
