A&G - Historic Church and Union Mills Public House, Fall Wedding

Have you ever had something in your life come "full circle?" Or you knew someone in a "past life" and then all of a sudden, "POOF," here they are again. That's Sarah and the Weigelt family. And in this instance, it happened twice!

Mrs. Weigelt was the dance teacher (yeah, that was a thing) at Sarah's high school. Sarah was in the theater program so Mrs. Weigelt was never far away during musical season. Flash forward years later to post-college life and again, Sarah helped the Weigelt family when she worked for the interior design firm that designed and renovated the original Beth Shalom Synagogue in Downtown Frederick, MD, turning it into a beautiful home and Airbnb for them.

So when Sarah received an inquiry in October 2022 from a Weigelt, all the way from San Diego, CA, she thought, "Hmmm could it be them? It couldn't!" But it was!

A&G were planning a picture perfect and detail-filled celebration in Gabe's hometown. They expertly planned their wedding from the West Coast! Their weekend started with a rehearsal and beautiful dinner at the Weigelts' home where they also got ready the next morning (peep the Halloween socks the ladies are wearing the gallery below). The ceremony was precious and took place at Grace United Church of Christ (where Sarah also sang years ago for a few weeks to help their choir). Their 130 guests laughed and teared up during the ceremony, officiated by Gabe's father.

But after the ceremony, a flawless and handsome (#GoNavy) sword arch led to the stealing of the bride, shots at Pretzel & Pizza Creations, and an ice-cream and Hawaiian shirt filled evening. A&G made sure to fill the evening with "you two time," and the pictures are so fun! A&G walked downtown from the church to the cocktail hour and reception at Union Mills, and there are so Autumn-perfect photos we cannot wait for you to see.

There were also multiple nods to "Dancing Queen," with a processional song mash up and disco ball escort cards. On the tables, Alexandria thrifted candle votives and bud vases. SBD places dozens of stems of greenery and baby's breath. The table was finished by a vinyl record table number, custom menus, and classy lack linens. One of our favorite moments of the whole day (and really, there were several favorites), was when Gabe danced with his momma to, "Edelweiss" and guests joined in and sang along.

Oh, and if she wasn't more amazing, Alex and her ladies made all of the bouquets themselves and they were PERFECT, if we do say so ourselves. When planning your wedding, SBD recommends hiring a florist but heck, Alex and her ladies did an amazing job.

As the party go underway the Navy men swapped their whites for Hawaiian print. Each gentlemen wore a different pattern and the groom may or may not have had to run out to the store that day and get one. Rocky Point Creamery provided DELICIOUS ice cream (who needs cake, right?), which we all know is Sarah's favorite.

One of our favorite ways to end the night is to have a private last dance while guests exit and prepare for a bubble exit. Their guests were so excited - even the ones who didn't get bubble guns.
