A Modern, Winter Wedding at Hotel Monaco in Baltimore, Maryland
Alyssa Lamdin (24, engineer) and Kyle Gable (24, police officer) grew up together. They started dating at the ripe age of 14, and since then they have experienced all of life's milestones together. Ten years after their relationship began, Kyle proposed to Alyssa in front the castle at Disneyland. The couple knew they wanted hotel in Baltimore for their city wedding, and Hotel Monaco was just the spot. They chose the nearby Loyala Alumni Memorial Chapel for their ceremony because Alyssa had attended Loyala, so the chapel had sentimental value. Alyssa and Kyle chose a crisp palette of gray, silver and white for their winter wedding, and their flower arrangements highlighted these color choices with white peonies, white roses, dusty miller, silver brunia, cotton bolls and pine cones. The reception was illuminated by blue and purple uplighting and tables were set with silver and white chevron and silver chiavari chairs. For entertainment, Alyssa and Kyle hired the dueling pianists from howling at the Moon in addition to providing a photo booth for guests. As favors, the couple gave their guests small, roasted marshmallow scented candles to warm them in the frosty winter. Wedding fashions included a variety of different gray dresses for the bridesmaids, gray suits for the groom and groomsmen, and a gorgeous mermaid style Vera Wang dress for the bride. Alyssa and her bridesmaids also wore cute fur jackets to protect from the cold. Alyssa and Kyle's winter wonderland wedding was crisp, modern and tons of fun.
