Yesterday evening I was at the The Cloisters Castle in Lutherville, MD for Melissa & Bruce’s wedding reception. This beautiful venue was the perfect location for the newlyweds…casual, relaxed and fun just like the bride and groom. I had the pleasure of working with Zeffert and Gold Catering, one the area’s finest as well as Butch & Carrie Linton of Linton Photography…a great team of vendors! Mr. & Mrs. St. Clair opened up the dancing just after the bridal party introductions to “I won’t give up” by Jason Mraz and then the bride and her father opening up the party dancing to Pharrell Williams’s “Happy” followed by nearly every guest joining in. For an early wedding that ended at 8 pm, these folks partied like it was going on midnight! A first for me, the fire alarm went off just before the last dance and I had to get everyone to evacuate the building. This would usually be quite the “buzz kill”, but Melissa and Bruce to their credit along with their guests laughed it off after everything was deemed safe and we ended the evening with all couples joining the newlyweds for Aerosmith’s “I don’t wanna miss a thing”. A fun and memorable night for all!
