Cristina & Colton

Annapolis Weddings

11/30/2017

From the wedding planner, Elle Ellinghaus Designs: Cristina & Colton’s wedding was a true “understated elegance” of a neutral palette with pops placed in perfect, strategically placed locations to make the event feel clean and cohesive, yet elegant and breathtaking. A large, white sailcloth tent matched the white, crisp linens. The gold, modern chairs added a chic-ness and matched the simple, but exquisite gold accents in the place settings. Greenery was used on the tables in the garland, the centerpieces andwith a magnolia leaf on each plate to bring together the grass under the tent. There was a ten by ten structure filled with white roses from Cristina’s family’s garden and jasmine vine that hung over the dance floor in a manicured structure to bring both the green, chic and white aspects together.

From the photographer, Love by Serena: From when I first met Cristina and Colton for an evening video chat from their home in Baltimore, I knew their wedding at Whitehall Annapolis was going to be a fun one. We fell on the topic of their love for ice cream and they were excited to announce that the Miss Twist ice cream truck (that frequently drives past their home) would be making an appearance during their reception. To make this story even better, the Miss Twist truck actually stopped by during our call and ice cream was acquired… which was amazing on so many levels. Fast forward to their wedding weekend and there’s a 100% forecast of hurricane. And what do you know? It turned out to be a beautiful, sunny 70 degree day with not a dribble of rain. The two of them got ready at the Loews Annapolis Hotel and headed to the stunning Whitehall for their first look, ceremony, and reception. Cristina’s family is from Guatemala, so they incorporated some traditional elements into their ceremony. Many family members traveled quite the distance and it was wonderful to see the coming together of families in such a celebration. Their reception had it all: an amazing band (Pop Philly) who kept the floor packed all night, glow stick dance offs, the infamous Miss Twist Ice Cream Truck, and late night snacks.
