When MaryLee and Ricardo began planning their wedding there was no question they both wanted to say their “I do’s” in the city where they grew up. They only looked in Baltimore and their first stop was the Belvedere. The history, charm, and intricate details of the gorgeous Charles Ballroom at The Belvedere swept them off their feet. They knew they wanted to tie the knot the way they first met (acting at a local theater) – with a touch of drama. Because they are both lifelong Catholics, having Corpus Christi Church only a mile away was a dream come true. The gothic style, vaulted ceilings and striking stained glass windows gave them the timeless setting to say their forever vows. Charm City and the thespian details ended up inspiring the theme and decor of their Baltimore wedding day!
As they got ready they snacked on Utz crab chips and sipped from their Baltimore natty boh inspired koozies. You can’t get much more Maryland that that! The rain stopped right as the bridal party arrived at the church and the two saw each other for the first time when MaryLee was escorted down the aisle by her father. The rest of the night was filled with great food (the seafood Maryland is known for), speeches that made them cry and laugh until their bellies hurt, and a rockin’ dance floor.
