A Romantic Lavender Wedding at Star-Spangled Banner Flag House in Baltimore, Maryland
Dana Braytenbah (31 and a cosmetics coordinator for a plastic surgeon) and Jay Lappen's (37 and a medical-device sales manager) wedding was a fusion of whimsical details and romantic touches. This blend of styles was highlighted by a light and airy palette of lavender, ivory, gray and peach that was perfect for their springtime celebration. To set the tone for their wedding, Dana and Jay added pretty purple lace details to their invitations. The lace echoed Dana's beautiful lace Stella York dress. Dana's cascading bouquet was whimsical but romantic, with lush pastel flowers, eucalyptus, succulents and silver brunia. Her bridesmaids carried similar bouquets and wore various styles of Alfred Angelo dresses in different shades of purple. For their reception, Dana and Jay chose a venue that was unmistakably Baltimore: The Star-Spangled Banner Flag House, a historic museum by the Inner Harbor, was the perfect place to celebrate their love and showcase their favorite city. They transformed its hall into an intimate, romantic space by illuminating it with purple uplighting and candlelight from lantern centerpieces. As a treat, Dana and Jay served their guests a lavender ombre wedding cake and a signature drink, Ladera Punch, which they discovered while traveling in St. Lucia. Mari Harsan Studios was there to capture all the gorgeous details.
