For dapper duo Noah and Justin, only the classiest of Baltimore wedding venues would do. They had plenty of options to choose from! After all, Baltimore is home to some of the loveliest museums, waterfront properties, and historic sites in the country.
But for their April wedding, they chose the 1920s neoclassical Fox Court at The Baltimore Museum of Art. The word “elegant” doesn’t begin to do this site justice. With its stone walls, soaring coffered ceiling, and classic columns lining the room, Fox Court is one of the classiest venues in town.
Organized and executed by a top-notch vendor team, Noah and Justin were in extremely capable hands. On the planning side, Julie of Partridge Avenue Events handled the details so the happy couple could enjoy their day. Dani Leigh (of Dani Leigh Photography) brought her expert eye to the event, taking beautiful posed shots and charming candids throughout the evening. And Baltimore wedding DJ Mike “Q” Stock took care of the vibe, with uplighting, dance floor lighting, and—of course—one helluva playlist.
For their processional, the grooms chose to enter the ceremony site on the arms of their mothers and fathers to Stand By Me by The Kingdom Choir. After the mothers were seated in the front row and the fathers were stationed with the rest of the wedding party, Noah and Justin said their vows under the Spencer Finch: Moon Dust light installation. And after the ceremony, the couple sashayed away to Stupid Love by Lady Gaga.
After cocktail hour in the Antioch Court next door, the couple and their 150 guests returned to Fox Court for their reception. The room was gently lit by amber uplighting by Maryland’s DJ, creating a romantic atmosphere for Noah and Justin’s first dance to Thinking Out Loud by J.J. Heller.
Then Noah and his mom danced to Sweet Child O’ Mine by Sheryl Crow, followed by Justin and his mom’s dance to The Wind Beneath My Wings by Idina Menzel. We always love to play less common versions of ultra-famous songs! It’s a brilliant way to keep things interesting yet familiar.
After dinner (accompanied by a Motown playlist by DJ Mike) and toasts, the party began in earnest. With our dancefloor spotlights projecting around the room and playing off the columns, the Baltimore Museum of Art had never looked more party-ready.
Noah and Justin dispensed with most of the common wedding traditions, but they did include an anniversary dance to Everlasting Love by Carl Carlton. And for the last song of the night, they chose the crowd-pleaser September by Earth, Wind & Fire.
Noah and Justin’s wedding day was full of joy and love, just as a wedding should be. It was a treat to join the rest of this phenomenal vendor team and help bring this beautiful day to life!
