A Yellow and Green Wedding at Elkridge Furnace Inn in Elkridge, Maryland
Despina Hangemanole (30 and a social worker) and Robert Elmore (31 and an IT network administrator) searched high and low for a venue with outdoor space and enough room to accommodate their guests. They finally found Elkridge Furnace Inn. The outdoor area where Despina and Bobby had their ceremony at the inn was simply stunning, with greenery all around and a raised platform for the altar area. The green space complemented Despina and Bobby's summery color palette of kelly green and yellow. Despina and Bobby lined the ceremony aisle with lanterns for a rustic touch. The chairs on the aisle featured framed quotes from Despina and Bobby's favorite love songs (like "XO" by Beyonce!). Bright yellow and green flower arrangements flanked the altar area, and the dining tables at the tented reception were similarly decorated. Despina wanted to incorporate her Greek heritage into the wedding style, so she wore a Greek-inspired draped wedding dress. The couple also gave their guests bottles of Greek olive oil as wedding favors. Despina and Bobby danced their first dance to "All of Me" by John Legend. Halfway through the song, the DJ played the faster remixed version so that all of their guests could join them on the dance floor! Eli Turner Studios captured the day.
