You know those people who are effortlessly cool and still laid-back and fun? That’s Tory and Drew. Their wedding—a hybrid of classic style, bohemian touches, and playful fall floral and industrial elements—felt like an organic extension of who they are as a couple. The stylish vision of this romantic wedding was brought into reality by the ever-so-chic and talented Elizabeth of East Made Co., the couple’s planner and stylist.
Tory looked absolutely stunning in a lacy trumpet dress complimented with a pearl flower crown on her loose wavy hair. Very much an embodiment of a Mucha-esque Antheia.
And of course Drew: classically cool in his bespoke suit from Baltimore’s version of Anthony Sinclair (James Bond’s original tailor), Christopher Schafer Clothier.
The couple did a first look and a few formal shots and an emotional gift exchange at their venue before hurrying off to the church. I always recommend a first look! It helps ease the stress of the day and gets all of the formalities out of the way before the ceremony so clients can have fun at their party.
Naturally, Tory and Drew knew they wanted a Loyola Chapel wedding. And this was all the more meaningful for them, for being the place where they met and fell in love. The bubble send-off, with the couple surrounded by the smiling faces of their closest friends and family was absolutely magical. I love send-offs, whether it’s rose colorful petals, bubbles, poppers, or ribbon wands – the results are always so much fun. (But please friends, promise me you won’t do lavender unless you want to look like bulldogs sticking their heads out of a window on a car ride.)
Dramatic floral decor as backdrop for an epic party
The style for their wedding was a casual-cool, Italian gathering vibe. Tory loved the work of florist La Fleur du Jour whose work and golden warm palettes and floral artistry set a magical tone for the evening.
The highlight of the dramatic reception decor at the Evergreen Museum & Library was the lush floral chandelier. Suspended from the verdant branches, Edison bulbs gave a warm glow to the amber glass industrial table markers, wild floral arrangements, and exposed wood table below.
One of the best parts of the evening for Drew and Tory was Brian Kirk and the Jirks. The two have been fans of the band since college and knew they could be trusted to provide an incredible dance party. At one point, Tory sang with the band to her husband and guests.
