If you want Fireworks and the Blue Angels for your wedding and your Dad’s title is not P.O.T.U.S. or even V. P.O.T.U.S. Carrie and Kevin Creedon can give you a tip. Get married on a weekend and in a city that is celebrating something patriotic, something of nationwide importance, something historic, like the Boston Tea Party or The American Revolution, or Hey, 4th of July, or in this case the 200th Anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner. Who knew it would be such a big deal?

For Carrie and Kevin I think it may have been a little more than luck or coincidence, I think there patriotism, like their religion runs a little deeper.
God, Country and Family? A Catholic Wedding at the famed Basilica, a reception at the Star Spangled Banner House, on the anniversary of the song? Yeah, all signs of some things held close to the heart.

Did I mention Blue Angels? To celebrate with the Creedons, the Blue Angels felt a fly-by, post ceremony, during the portraits would be just right. And it was.
Summer in Baltimore can be a little muggy. But September can be perfect. And it really was. Though the day started with rain by the afternoon the sun was out to host cocktail hour in the Banner House’s gardens.

Clear skies made way for a final send off with seven sets of Fireworks surrounding the reception. Step aside Kim and Kanye, I think the Creedon’s Star Spangled wedding trumped the lifestyles of the rich and famous.

Shoes? Check. Dress? Check. Rings? Check. Looks like someone’s getting…
2
Just get some life-long loved ones together.

Gather those that mean the most and make them bring a Dress and a Tux.

Because this day is a celebration, a party in ones life like few others.

And where in Baltimore does one go for such a party? In their dresses and their tuxes, with their flowers and their adoration for one another? There are a few choices, definitely more than a couple.

But not many as photogenic, with all there is to love about Maryland as Harbor East and the Marriott Waterfront. There is nothing to a Marylander that signifies home, that warms the soul more than the sounds of boats gently rocking in the water, dinging, the chirp of gulls and the scent of salt in the air. Hold please while I slip on my Sperry’s.

Oh no, I gotta keep my tux on, just a bit longer to enjoy the elegance of a ballroom with pedestals and flowers and the photo, that one of many but that one of the bride, frozen in time, her dress in full flair as she moves down the aisle, all those who’ve come pause, taking a breath of the sublime.

Ahh, and now we can exhale, let loose and celebrate.

Celebrate the first day of the rest of our lives.
