A Wedding By Veronica Cole
Bobby and Despina
Bobby loves music, keeping laid back and good food. Despina loves super casual celebrations, playing soccer and broke her nose six weeks before the wedding. Ugh! Thank goodness for makeup artists. Together we designed and I planned a summer garden wedding hosted at the Elkridge Furnace Inn. A historic restaurant located on the banks of the Patapsco River in Maryland that grows their own organic ingredients for their menu items. The ceremony was nestled in the woods over looking the river on a brick pavers on the grounds of the Inn.
Music quotes from their favorite songs like “I love you like XO”from Beyoncé, “Turns out not where but who you’re with that really matters” from Dave Matthews Band and “I love you for a hundred thousand reasons but most of all I love you cause you’re you” by Johnny Cash were framed in gold and hanging on the chairs going down the aisle.
The ceremony also reflected their fun side by having their bridal party walk down the aisle to the theme of the Game of Thrones played by a string trio. Bobby and Despina’s guests loved every minute of the wedding ceremony.
We also incorporated Bobby’ Native American and Despina’s Greek heritage with having 200 dream catchers handmade on a Native American reservation in New Mexico (thanks May) that doubled as escort cards displayed on a huge branch wall and olive oil imported from Greece and mini olive trees on the guest tables.
Light fare was served as the main course to leave room for the late night a junk food station complete with; vanilla, chocolate and strawberry milkshakes, waffle fries, crab cake sliders and custom cocktail napkins that said “I love you like fat kid love cake”
