In our opinion, spring time — or warmer weather for that matter, cannot come soon enough. We are featuring Danielle and Jared’s waterfront wedding from last summer to help remind us that warmer months are coming soon. Originally, Danielle and Jared planned their wedding to take place at the Baltimore Museum of Industry. Unfortunately, due to the unrest in the city of Baltimore at the time, we had to resort to plan B. Luckily for Danielle, Jared and their guests, their “plan B,” just happened to include a breathtaking view of the Chesapeake Bay.

The Elk Manor Winery offers three unique wedding venue options, conveniently all located on one property. Danielle and Jared’s Elk Manor Winery wedding took place on the Beach Venue, which allows for guests to stroll along the beach, a 60X90′ tent for the reception, and most importantly, a picturesque waterfront background.

There were so many fun elements to this spring outdoor wedding. Inside the wedding tent, guest tables were decorated with silver linens and napkins that alternated between maize, Kelly green, and coral. The spring wedding centerpieces of purple and yellow dandelions complimented the linens perfectly. Just as unique, this Elk Manor Winery wedding featured a small paddle boat that iced down Union Craft Brewing beers and other summer drinks for the celebration. Keeping with the theme, Danielle and Jared brewed their own beer and used the beer as a unique wedding favor for their guests.

The change of venue four days before the wedding may have been impossible, had it not been for working with such amazing vendors. Congratulations to Danielle and Jared! We look forward to catering more Elk Manor Winery weddings in the near future.
