Can we just say…we’re so pumped that weddings are back in full swing? This summer has been an absolute crush of weddings, and it’s been such a joy to do what we do with all of you again!
One of the most delightful events of this wild season was Tracie and Felix’s Baltimore wedding. Held at a gorgeous venue with fantastic music and some epic dance moves, this day was everything we love about weddings.
To beat the July heat, Tracie and Felix opted for an indoor event at downtown Baltimore’s The Winslow, a 1919 industrial building that has been completely restored into a magnificent event space. This venue is the definition of industrial-chic, with original steel beams, exposed brick, timber ceilings, and sleek metal railings.
Photographer Josh Fernandez did an amazing job capturing the celebration. His focus is candid photography, encouraging natural moments throughout the day rather than posed photos.
The ceremony was in the Trainshed, an open room with a wall of original brick and wood window sashes painted an earthy green. For their processional, the wedding party and Tracie all entered to Gorgeous Days - Private Suite by Yuko Komiyama. This piece of music is from the Monster Hunter World video game soundtrack and features a gentle harp and cello.
Once they sealed the deal with a smooch, Baltimore wedding DJ hit play on Rocketeer by Far East Movement ft. Ryan Tedder. While the song played, the guests were invited to follow Tracie and Felix out to the bar area for cocktail hour.
The reception took place in The Winslow Room, the largest of the venue’s event spaces. This double-height room has massive windows and skylights to illuminate the raw steel beams, wood rafters, and concrete floors. A second-story mezzanine gives guests a place to mingle while looking down on the celebration below. Because the space has so much built-in character, Tracie and Felix didn’t have to do too much to make it shine. A little greenery did the trick!
For their first dance, Tracie and Felix chose Ultralife (Abbey Road Piano Sessions) by Oh Wonder. Then Tracie and her dad danced to My Wish by Rascal Flatts, followed by Felix and his mom to Katherine Ho’s cover of Coldplay’s Yellow from the Crazy Rich Asians soundtrack.
After the formalities, Tracie changed out of her chic white gown to a short, lacy qipao, a traditional body-hugging Chinese dress. Her qipao was a vibrant red—the traditional wedding dress color in China, symbolizing happiness, prosperity, and good luck. All things you wish for on your wedding day! We love a wardrobe change moment.
When the dance floor opened, the crowd went wild! There was even some impressive breakdancing.
To mix things up, there was also a raffle with prizes during the night. The grand prize was a vinyl Sound Garden record!
It was such a delight to be part of this epic celebration at one of the coolest industrial wedding venues in Baltimore. Whether you’re going modern, traditional, multicultural, or a unique blend of styles, we’d love to help. Contact us today to book a Baltimore wedding DJ for your 2023 wedding!
