We were married in November and just missed the peak color in fall leaves! We were married at The Cloisters Castle in Lutherville, MD and had a very beautiful and reasonably priced wedding. I was happy with all vendors and enjoyed the planning process as I did it all by myself! The Wedding Mapper was a fun way for our out of town guests to enjoy a "vacation" weekend also while attending the wedding. It was fun to add our favorite places for people to see what we like to do also!
Unbelievable. John's personality fit perfectly with my husband...both are funny and laid back. John has an amazing style of shooting pictures, is so friendly and easy going, remains calm, help out as needed (ie: helped put flowers on the guys), made everyone so comfortable and never stopped shooting! John shot both our engagement and wedding pictures all of which we were extremely happy with. I will keep him in my life as long as we have milestones to capture. All guests were impressed with pics and his ease at the wedding. My mother (if you only knew) said he was worth every penny...amazing man! John also brought two assistants to the wedding to ensure not a moment was missed. The proof album was completed and ready for us one week after the wedding, he has been very good at communicating with me at all times, and has time for me even after my wedding has been done! VERY HIGHLY recommended. Average Prices range from $2500 and UP! I will have these photos for life and love every one of them.
The cake was so amazing! All of the guests enjoyed both chocolate/rasberry and lemon cake!

I found the dress of my dreams at this store. The drawbacks are many...once you select and pay for your dress they are not very helpful. I had to call several times after my dress was due to be in and they couldn't find it, they lost my veil twice, they promised to hold is "safely" until the week before the wedding but asked me to take it home when it arrived. There was new staff members EVERY single time I went to check, for a fitting etc... All in all I am happy to have the dress but don't recommend it very highly for "service".
REV Sutton was just what we were looking for! We did not want a religious ceremony but rather focused on us and our years together! She was funny, friendly and kind. She emailed me various ideas and reminders when the big day became close. She was organized, helpful and professional. BONUS she used to work for Cloisters and loves the location...so she is familar with how things work and who to talk to if necessary. LOVED HER! Typical cost at about $500.
Go to the website and review their clips! Once we discussed our options and decided what exactly we wanted they put together a custom package for just us. They are great about breaking up the payments and were very organized and easy to communicate with. Our Videographer Neil Benjers was wonderful and blended in well during the wedding and reception. No trouble or issues whatsoever with this vendor. Typical Costs are $2000 and up!
AMAZING! I couldn't have asked for a better catering company. Cloisters requires you to use one of few listed companies due to kitchen restraints. I picked hunt valley at both open house. They offer the best "all inclusive" prices. We had crab cakes and steak which was so delish! Even being the bride I sat down to eat my crabcakes...I didn't hit the tables until I was done. Since there is no wedding coordinator at the Cloisters our catering captain Jeanie kept us organized and on schedule. The tasting we set up was great, food was amazing, everyone working for them was so helpful and friendly, and their prices were unbeatable. We were more than happy and every guest complimented us on dinner. HIGHLY recommended!!
Average Price including full open bar, cake each guest and plated/served appetizers was $70-100 depending on dinner selections.(There was also a buffet option which was less expensive)
Since we were having crabcakes for dinner we searched for another type of venue for the rehersal dinner. Libertores is an Italian Ristorante which is located at 9515 Deereco Road in Timonium, Md. Owner Michael Galasso, phone 410-561-3300.
The whole place is painted in fun murals, there is a private room to accomodate a large group and a small terrace for a group of 20-30. We selected the menu and enjoyed everything we tried. Guests were happy and well taken care of while enjoying our night. The staff was great and we experienced NO problems. The owner and I communicated directly regarding the menu and payment. Highly Recommended...avg price person $30 and up.
Everyone that attended the wedding LOVED the cloisters. It was huge and beautiful full of candles. Pictures were perfect! The only downfall is there is no official "site planner" you are on your own to keep everything on track, set up, in order and on time.
The hotel was not far from the Cloisters so it worked out nicely. The suites had good space and full kitchens which helped greatly with out of town guests. Keep on the event planner to ensure your rooms are being blocked, guests are happy and no "additional" charges are being put on your guests. Management was friendly and corrected any problems we had immediately. BONUS they offered a shuttle to transport guests to and from the wedding! YAH!
Awesome space for a small wedding. We had about 100 people and the only issue was that they were seated in two separate rooms and all guests couldn't see the bride and groom at all times. Again we LOVED the space.
