Continuing from the getting ready at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront hotel and the wedding ceremony at Sacred Heart Church, Glyndon, MD, here is part two, the reception party from Chelsea and Michael’s wedding at the Baltimore Museum of Industry.
From the church, the wedding party and parents get to ride this cool trolley bus to the hotel and finally to the reception venue.
I noticed when Michael and Chelsea stole a kiss, so like a reflex I immediately took their picture. It only lasted for a few seconds, but I was always ready with my camera. 🙂
On our way to the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront hotel, we stopped by at this beautiful location outside of Baltimore.
The beautiful Bride posing with all the handsome Best Man and Groomsmen.
Then it was the handsome Groom’s turn to pose with the beautiful Matron of Honor and Bridesmaids. 🙂
Chelsea and her bestie, Lauren, who was also the Matron of Honor.
I love looking at these gorgeous flower bouquets designed by Roberta Salcedo of Bella Fiori Couture Events and Floral Design. The Bride’s floral bouquet was a cascading bouquet of white and purple orchids.
The lovely reception dress that Chelsea was wearing below was a Justin Alexander design. The ceremony dress was a Maggie Sottero design.
Check out these awesome shoes of the Bride, Matron of Honor, and the Bridesmaids. The different leopard print patterns are so cute!
Delicious appetizers were served during the cocktail hour.
The Bride and Groom loved to go to Ryleigh’s in Federal Hill for oysters so they wanted to have raw oysters bar with the oyster shucker at the reception.
Enjoy looking at these delicious hor d’oeuvres from Biddle Street Catering. 🙂
A good friend of the Mother of the Bride painted the picture on the right as a gift for Chelsea and Michael. The ironwork background design came from a window in the Baltimore Museum of Industry. The crab was on the invitation and was also designed by the painter. It has C and M initials in a repeating pattern. Chelsea and Michael wanted a crab because Michael proposed to Chelsea on the dock at Crab Alley. At the bottom of the painting are 3 postcards showing Ryleigh’s Oyster House, the dock at Crab Alley and a Baltimore Harbor scene.
They used an old antique door for the table assignment list. Really neat!
I just love looking at the awesome interior of this venue, Baltimore Museum of Industry.
The wedding party put on a show for everyone during their introduction. It was so fun to watch! 😀
Next was the first dance for the Bride and Groom accompanied by the performance from the live band.
The live band was Spectrum from the Washington Talent Agency. There were 8 band members.
Everyone was served these delicious crab cake and steak. Mmmm… 🙂
Love this cute idea of using crab trap for putting cards from guests. 🙂
Next was the Father of the Bride and daughter dance.
Followed by Mother of the Groom and son dance.
Then it was open dance floor for everyone!
Op op op op oppan Gangnam Style !
Beautiful view of Baltimore Harbor city lights from BMI.
Congratulations Chelsea and Michael! May you both live happily ever after!
