A Beautiful Mid-June Evening Wedding

Lanterns in the trees and a heart balloon, a beautiful evening, a lovely bride, and a very proud papa!

 

That’s the string quartet, Music by Anthem, on the left, with just over 100 guests in the ceremony garden.

 

The weather was great, so everyone was outside for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The sharp-eyed can pick out Executive Chef Jonathan Soudry of Rouge Fine Catering, in the white chef’s coat in the center of the image.

 

Pretty escort cards on cork bases, laid out just so.

 

What a cool way to whet your guest’s appetites!

 

The exquisite flowers on the chandeliers are by Fleur de Lis Florist.

 

The cake came from Sugarbakers Cakes.

 

Fleur de Lis Florist added a little love to the fireplace!

An Intimate Wedding in the Garden

This was the best, most engaging wedding ceremony I’ve seen at Chase Court! Karla and Page had an early afternoon ceremony in the garden, using our Complete Intimate Wedding Package. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful experience!

 

Could they be any happier!

 

The Rev. Jesús Rivera did an outstanding job of weaving together Spanish for Karla’s Peruvian family and English for the rest of the guests. It was seamless and beautiful. Jesús is a seminary-trained cleric, and it shows in the skill and understanding that he brings to the wedding ceremonies that he does at Chase Court. He’s also an incredibly warm and engaging guy!

 

Karla’s and Page’s parents were asked for their support and blessing.

 

The brides did a wine ceremony, symbolizing the blending together of their two different lives into one.

 

Each set of parents offered a reading of something significant to them that they wanted  to share with the brides. Notice that Karla and Page came down two steps from the pergola, and that Page’s parents stood before them. Each movement like this – and there were several – was symbolic and meaningful.

 

 

 

The rings were exchanged out in front of the guests, all of whom had just held each of them in their hands and sealed them with their blessings.

 

The nuptial blessing.

 

 

No standing on formality here!

 

 

 

The photography, flowers, officiant, and, of course, the venue, were provided by Chase Court as part of our Complete Intimate Wedding Package. We carefully choose each vendor for your wedding from the top professionals on our Recommended Vendors list. Our intimate “elopement” packages run from four guests up to 45, and start at $795.

Giving Back to the Community

The Maryland Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society held their Man & Woman of the Year fundraiser Kick-off Celebration at Chase Court in April.

 

Rouge Fine Catering provided their as-always stunning food, with presentation to match. The LLS colors of red, silver, and black looked great against Chase Court’s Gothic architecture.

 


It looks a little gray, but everyone had fun with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the garden.

 


Jon Rosa, Executive Director of the Maryland Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, welcomed everyone to the event and told the story of how we’re saving lives that would otherwise be lost to leukemia & lymphoma.

 


The ballroom was full of Man and Women of the Year candidates, one-hundred strong, ready to go out and raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to fund cancer research and improve the quality of life for patients and their families.

 


We are tremendously grateful to our catering partner, Rouge Fine Catering, for their support of this event.

 

Lymphoma is personal with us. The work of LLS has been real and tangible in the life of Chase Court. We’re delighted to have found this wonderful way to support lifesaving work in the fight against cancer. This event, now in it’s second year at Chase Court, is our gift to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for the support of their work.

Lots of men, women, and children have encounters with lymphoma and leukemia that are a lot less deadly thanks to the work of LLS. Every one of the people present for the Kickoff Celebration evening got that, and they are giving back.

It’s quick and easy to add your support to the fight to cure cancer. Click here to see the page of candidates, and click the red box below their photograph to choose how you’d like to add your support. Thanks!!!
