This past Fall our team at Chris Laich Music Services was a part of a very special wedding for Lauren and Patrick (Paddy) at Walker’s Overlook in Frederick, MD. They are one of the nicest couples and we aren’t just saying that because Lauren is also owner Chris Laich’s niece! Both Lauren and Paddy are two of the kindest people, who met at summer camp. It’s been great to see their relationship and love grow over all these years. Lauren is from the area and Paddy moved to DC from Ireland.

Being a part of our couples day is always wonderful and exciting, and especially when they are also family. We are so happy for Lauren and Paddy! It was a great wedding with a superb team of wedding professionals, Kate Fine ArtBright Occasions, Edge Floral Event Designers and Catering by Uptown, who all made sure the day went perfectly.  To see more, check out Kate Fine Art Photography. Here is a recap for Lauren and Paddy’s wedding:

Since it was a cold November day, they chose to get married in the heated tent at Walker’s Overlook.  It was still a beautiful ceremony with gorgeous floral arrangements and candlelight from Edge.

After the ceremony guests went into the House for cocktails and the tent was transformed for dinner and dancing.  The vendors did a great job with the flip and the tent looked awesome with our wireless uplights!
