From when I first met Cristina and Colton for an evening video chat from their home in Baltimore, I knew their wedding at Whitehall Annapolis was going to be a fun one. We fell on the topic of their love for ice cream and they were excited to announce that the Miss Twist ice cream truck (that frequently drives past their home) would be making an appearance during their reception. To make this story even better, the Miss Twist truck actually stopped by during our call and ice cream was acquired… which was amazing on so many levels.
Fast forward to their wedding weekend and there’s a 100% forecast of hurricane. And what do you know? It turned out to be a beautiful, sunny 70 degree day with not a dribble of rain. The two of them got ready at the Loews Annapolis Hotel and headed to the stunning Whitehall for their first look, ceremony, and reception.
Cristina’s family is from Guatemala, so they incorporated some traditional elements into their ceremony. Many family members traveled quite the distance and it was wonderful to see the coming together of families in such a celebration. Their reception had it all: an amazing band (Pop Philly) who kept the floor packed all night, glow stick dance offs, the infamous Miss Twist Ice Cream Truck, and late night snacks.
A huge thank you and shoutout goes to the always incredible Elle Ellinghaus Designs for making their wedding such a beauty and keeping everything so organized/on point!
