We loved working with Amanda and David for their gorgeous Old Hollywood inspired wedding with quintessential DC touches.  They are a great couple with a fun, loving and supportive family and wedding party.  It was a great night!  Their beautiful wedding photographed by Kurstin Roe Photography was recently featured on United With Love, and it was no surprise to our team at Chris Laich Music Services.  With Ashlee Virginia Events and Petals & Hedges, it was a stunning wedding!  See the full vendor list below, here are the highlights!

One of the best kept secrets at the University of Maryland, is no longer a secret.  Our team at Chris Laich Music Services loves working at the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center, which is a great choice for corporate events and weddings.  What started as a space for U of M alum to congregate and entertain, is now a wonderful event space for everyone.

We love the stunning event spaces, gardens and versatile spaces to entertain.  With the multitude of spaces weddings of virtually all sizes can be accommodated.  As well as couples looking to have their ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in one location.  To accommodate for the size of the space and using multiple areas, we always bring our bose wireless speakers for ample sound and coverage throughout the event!

Here are some photos from a recent wedding of our set-up:

Earlier this summer we had the pleasure to work with one of the sweetest couples for their Virginia wedding at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens.  Alexandra and Carter had a wedding filled with joy!  It was wonderful to work with Katie DeLorme Photography, the photos are absolutely stunning from this wedding and we couldn’t wait to share them!  The staff at Meadowlark did an amazing job, and we could just tell that all of Alexandra and Carter’s guests were having the best day ever.

We love how they set-up the ceremony outside at Meadowlark.  They chose the song “Begin Again by” for the Bridesmaids and “A Thousand Years” for Bride Alexandra and her Father.  For their recessional, we played “Forever”
