When you meet in a library and then you come across the gorgeous George Peabody Library, you make it your wedding venue. Lauren and Martin planned a perfect classic wedding in a unique setting – wait until you see their ceremony and reception space below! Enjoy this Maryland wedding captured beautifully by Artful Weddings.
From the photographer: “Lauren and Martin met while both were attending Washington College in St. Louis. They were both in the same study group and eventually Martin asked Lauren for her number. The two started dating soon after that. Martin proposed to Lauren on Valentine’s Day in the same restaurant where they had their first date. They chose to get married in Baltimore, where Lauren’s grandparents live. The actual ceremony and reception were held the Peabody Library – as Lauren said, ‘We met in a library, so it was fitting to get married in one. Plus the Peabody Library is absolutely beautiful.’ Lauren went with neutral colors and simple arrangements, as she didn’t want anything to detract from the elegance of the space. Colors were pink and white. Lauren’s dress was designed by Amsale from Kleinfeld’s in New York City, and the same veil her grandmother, mother and two aunts had worn. Marin wore a custom black tuxedo from Christopher Shafer’s. Dinner was elegant and sophisticated with lobster tail with garden risotto and summer vegetables from Occassions Catering. Dessert was ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’ individual beehives of spice cake, and caramel ice cream covered with a meringue “beehive” and tiny bee shape candies. Late night snacks mini Reubens, Neopolitan pizza and milkshakes. First dance was to Billy Joel’s ‘Just the Way You Are’.”
