Matt and Whitney’s 1840s Plaza wedding in Baltimore featured so many ooh and ahh elements, I have to share it with you! At Matt and Whitney’s 1840s Plaza wedding, they had boozey popsicles for cocktail hour, breakfast for dinner featuring a custom bloody Mary bar, and a donut bar for dessert.
Matt and Whitney’s special day started with a tear-jerking first look. Matt rocked back and forth on his heels as he heard Whitney’s footsteps behind him just hours before his 1840s Plaza wedding in the courtyard of 1840s Carrollton Inn.
As he waited for her, Matt wiped away tears and read a special note Whitney wrote for him.
The day was the hottest day of the summer in Baltimore. Matt and Whitney decided to take most of their portraits inside 1840s Plaza. Luckily, 1840s Plaza has beautiful locations and a strong air conditioner.
Matt and Whitney had the cutest bridal party, too! The second floor of the 1840s Plaza features a cute soda shop. We shot just a few portraits outside before seeking the relief of the air conditioning inside. The soda shop was cool, bright, and stinking adorable.
Matt and Whitney held their ceremony in the 1840s Carrollton Inn courtyard. The cafe lights twinkled and guests fanned themselves. The heat index was 110 degrees. The ceremony was in the shade of the courtyard with a slight breeze.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed the courtyard and a boozey popsicle cart. **THIS** is genius. Guests were able to cool themselves in the shade and nosh on boozey popsicles. The popsicles were a huge hit!
After cocktail hour, guests headed to the 4th floor ballroom. The 4th floor of the 1840s Plaza features navy and gold curtains, regal murals, and decant chandeliers.
As guests entered the 4th floor ballroom, guests were greeted with a bloody Mary bar. The extensive to-it-yourself bloody Mary bar was fun. Everyone enjoyed it! The bloody Mary bar was a great segue to the rest of the reception which featured breakfast for dinner.
As the evening progressed, the couple and their families laughed, cried and danced the night away.
As a final send off, the couple surprised their guests with a custom donut bar. After being treated with basic donut, guests selected their favorite glazes and toppings. I never drink at weddings, so I missed out on the boozey popsicles and bloody Mary bar. The custom donut after a long day in the hot sun? Yuuuuuummm. It was so tasty.
