Maryland Wedding Planner | Woodlawn Farm – Adriana + Tony

Adriana + Tony were married on May 16, 2015. Their Ceremony was held at St. Michael’s Catholic Church and their Reception at Woodlawn Farm in Southern Maryland

I’ve personally known Adriana since the 10th grade! We lived in the same neighborhood and met on the school bus – true story! Her laugh was contagious and her family was always so welcoming! She always held a special place in my heart. Heart emoji :). When I first hear she was engaged to Tony I instantly reached out and let her know if she needed any help planning her wedding, please let me know! About a month later (almost 1 year before her wedding) she sent out the smoke signals. Simply Breathe Events was to the rescue!

Our first meeting was hilarious. We caught up over guac and margaritas and plowed through her wedding folder, filled to the brim with 14 (and counting!) vendors. I remember her asking me – Do you think this is too many vendors?? Adriana’s attention to detail was impressive and I was so glad to step in where needed throughout her wedding planning process and now more importantly a month before her wedding make sure all of her plans came to light flawlessly.

…That is, except for the Sever Thunderstorm Watch that had been looming in the distance the entire week and now on their big day. All seemed to be going well! All vendors had their weather apps open and on lock, predicting the storm’s every move. The staff at Woodlawn just needed the words, and they’d have the walls to the tent dropped in mins. About 20 mins before the end of the reception, that’s when Big Burtha hit. As Adriana, Tony, and all of their guests danced on, all vendors made a mad dash to cover the vintage rentals, and the DJ booth with tarp, as well as drop the walls to the tent. I remember vividy sitting on one of the ends to the tent walls as the wind howled while to trying to hold it down with my body weight. Soaked in rain I could see over my shoulder that Adriana + Tony weren’t phased by any of the chaos going on around them. In fact they were laughing and having the time of their lives! I could see in their eyes it was one of the best nights of their lives :).

    I would like to pay for advice on table arranging. My daughter has quite a collection of vintage cocktail glasses which she is using for toast but also silver pieces. I need to know what to do about the arrangement of pieces on table. Thank you
    Adrienne.
