An Elegant, Rustic Wedding at Mt. Washington Mill Dye House in Baltimore, Maryland
The exposed brick walls and wooden interior of Mount Washington Mill Dye House in Baltimore, Maryland, helped shape the perfect ambience for this elegant wedding with a rustic twist. From the moment Corinne Cicero (29 and a teacher) and John Carter (29 and a consultant) walked in, they fell in love with the rustic feel they had envisioned for the venue. L. Hewitt Photography captured the neutral hues chosen to decorate the day, accenting everything from the simple ceremony programs to the dinnerware set on wooden dining tables. Once guests entered the reception, they were greeted by a square moss board with cream-colored felt paper displaying seating assignments. Long dining tables had wooden blocks marked with cast iron numbers, along with potted succulents at each seat depicting names on white labels. Corinne and John sat at their chairs, marked with "Mr." and "Mrs." wooden signs. They were right next to their wedding party members, who followed the neutral colors of the nuptials—with bridesmaids dressed in neutral-colored gowns, while the groomsmen sported charcoal suits with champagne-colored ties. But our favorite detail had to be what Corinne and John called the "naked rustic cake," filled with vanilla cake, layered with lemon and blackberry curd and topped with fresh raspberries.
