Lauren & Michael’s Wedding + Reception / La Banque de Fleuve

Friday night in Havre de Grace, MD, Lauren & Michael became Mr. & Mrs. Benning! Their ceremony and reception were held along the banks of the Chesapeake Bay at La Banque de Fleuve, a 19th century bank, that has been fully restored in all of the decadence and beauty of its original state. The Serafin String Quartet performed the processional and recessional for the ceremony and then DJ Frank Marsden took over for cocktails and the rest of the celebration. Cocktails and appetizers were served after Lauren & Michael said “I do” and then the Bride & Groom were formally introduced in to the reception to Walk The Moon’s “Shut Up And Dance”. The newlyweds then danced to “Say You Won’t Let Go” by James Arthur. A blessing by the Groom’s Stepfather preceded a buffet meal provided by the nice folks from MacGregor’s Restaurant & Catering. The Groom’s Brother/Best Man proposed a toast to Lauren & Michael just before the dancing started. Music from artists such as Will Smith, Queen, Usher, The Beatles, MC Hammer, Jennifer Lopez and many more were requested by the Bride & Groom and guests. The newlyweds cut their cake as a version of “Can’t Help Falling In Love” by Andrea Bocelli & Katherine McPhee was played. Lauren tossed her bouquet while “Single Ladies” by Beyonce was played and then Michael removed and tossed his wife’s garter to Nelly’s “Hot In Here”. Just before heading outside for the sparkler send off, guests joined the Bride & Groom for one last dance to “Save The Last Dance For Me” by The Drifters. Last night’s festivities came together with the help from the McGregors staff, Photographer Becca Neufeld, Editing Life Videography, Serafin String Quartet and Sweet Eats Cakes. Congratulations and lots of love to the new Mr. & Mrs. Benning!
