Traditional Maryland Wedding: Seth + Marnina

Are you planning a traditional wedding and need inspiration? We’re bringing it to you thanks to Preferred Baltimore Photographer, Dennis Drenner! Seth and Marnina planned a traditional themed wedding in Baltimore, Maryland, with classic and vintage details throughout. The groom wore a classic black tuxedo with a bow tie, while the bride stunned in a cathedral length wedding gown, complete with train and lace bolero. She paired her dress with a classic wedding veil and a vintage inspired brooch bouquet. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed an elegant reception complete with dinner, dancing, and the Hora (as you can see in the first image below!) It looks like everyone had a fun time, especially the bride and groom! See Seth and Marnina’s beautiful day as it unfolded, complete with memories of the day as told by their photographer, Dennis. Enjoy!

Dennis tells us, “I had a front row seat when Seth first saw Marnina in her wedding dress, and was watching her face through my zoom lens as she looked at her husband to be. The joy and depth of emotion in their faces was so intense, if they had been actors I would have thought they were overdoing it. But this was the real thing, and for a photographer it was a blast to photograph, and for a human being… well, gives you faith in humanity!”

“The ceremony and reception were held at the Beth Tfiloh Congregation near Baltimore. My day started out calmly with some getting ready photos, photographing some details and overalls of the scene and the beautiful sanctuary… and then things began to happen. There was a kabbalat panim where people greet and pray with the bride, and then the men’s and women’s tisch. I particularly enjoyed the bedeken, where Karen (my wife and second shooter) and I worked in unison to capture the amazing moments happening all around us.”

“After the bedeken, the wedding just seemed to take off like a rocket ship, a non-stop whirl of intense emotion and activity that continued for hours. Towards the end of the reception things finally calmed down and we collapsed in a heap, happy and tired, precious gigabytes of family memories safely zipped up in our bags.”

New Trend: Sparkly Sequin Letter in Gold or Silver

At Emmaline Bride, one of our goals is to share the latest + greatest handmade wedding trends + finds, along with Real Wedding ideas. So, when we stumbled upon this ultra-sparkly sequin letter over at Miss Poppy Design, it pretty much stopped us in our tracks. We’ve see monogram letters done over, and over, and over againburlap covered, fabric covered, yarn covered, etc. But sequin-covered? Now that’s new — and we’re on board with this sparkly, festive detail. Use it as a decor piece at your bridal shower, bachelorette bash, or at your wedding. Who wouldn’t love to re-purpose this pretty piece in her home office after the big day? I know I’m already scheming a way to fit it into EB Headquarters. I mean, we could always use more gold in our office, am I right? And just like coffee and lipstick and pretty high heels, a girl can never have too much sparkly gold decor. That’s my motto anyway. Enjoy!

Sequin Letter

I love it in gold…
