Claudia D'Ambrosio (30 and a financial analyst) and Sapan Dhora (30 and a cyber security engineer) knew they wanted a forest wedding, so they held their wedding at Thorpewood in Thurmont, Maryland, with an outdoor ceremony among the trees and an indoor reception at Thorpewood's beautiful lodge. Splashes of bold colors and white with pops of metallic brought out a classic, vintage theme, adding a soft, romantic look for the fall wedding. After enjoying a three-course dinner and a beautiful three-tier cake, guests were given Indian beaded mirror and notebook favors and enjoyed Cuban Cigars from the cigar station.
