Liz and Adam hosted their swanky, winter wedding in Maryland at The Bolger Center in Potomac where they welcomed guests to oodles of divine details in gold, black, white with even a touch of silver! In case you missed their sweet wedding ceremony, be sure to take a look here. Liz and Adam did an amazing job of staying on budget, with the help of the bride’s mom who actually made many of the details for the day. We love it when the family gets together to create, and you can see it in the personal touches, right down to the soccer ball ornaments in some of the reception table centerpieces! Liz and Adam’s wedding has everything an indoor reception could possibly need and more – like multiple wedding cakes that look oh-so delish! Special thanks to Maureen Pacheco Photography for capturing each and every big day detail and sharing them with us!
From Liz: My mom did everything for our wedding. She put the table centerpieces together and did all the name cards. Anything that was brought into our wedding, was done by my mom other than the cake table.
My favorite wedding day memory was dancing with my dad. It was the first time I had ever danced with him, so it was special. We took a few lessons on waltzing. He chose to dance to a song from the Godfather, which was actually pretty funny.
Pictures, and desserts and my wedding dress were my main priorities. I tried to be as budget friendly as I could. My mom did all of the wedding decorations, flowers and we skipped on videographer and crazy decorations.
Advice from Liz for other Washington DC area couples:
Try not to stress on the day of your wedding. Take everything in! The wedding day goes by so quickly and once it’s over you will miss it. Take time to enjoy one another and your day together. Have fun!
