Zeffert and Gold Catering Wedding Spotlight: Beth and Brady’s Annapolis Waterfront Wedding at Historic London Town

Waterfront Wedding Annapolis

Although winter may have lingered a bit too long this year, spring has finally sprung and wedding season is in full swing. This past weekend we had the pleasure of catering Beth and Brady’s wedding that took place in Historic London Town, in Annapolis, Maryland. A breathtaking waterfront venue, accompanied by ideal, warm, Baltimore spring weather made for the perfect wedding on Saturday, April 19th.

At Zeffert and Gold, we pride ourselves on helping to incorporate the bride and groom’s personalities throughout their wedding day. So, what did Beth and Brady’s do on their special day? For one, handcrafted signs that mapped where the bride and groom said “I Do,” to the reception area that solidified how the bride and groom said “I Did,” was a taste of the groom, who is a professional tattoo artist. Creative, artistic pieces were in abundance at this Chesapeake Bay waterfront wedding that was catered for more than 150 guests.

The couple’s love for spring blossomed throughout the entire wedding venue, as the couple had a rustic, self-serve lemonade and iced tea stand that guests were able to enjoy with a variety of mason jars.

Their love for sweets was bestowed upon their guests, as well, with a delicious candy bar that allowed the guests to pick their own decadent desserts to enjoy. A cherry blossom wedding cake with a cake-topper made out of Lego’s, was a playful display of the couple, and left their guests with a mouthful of spring.

Each wedding that we proudly serve is a unique testimony of the bride and groom’s love story. As this couple did, take inspiration from other weddings that we cater, and find ways to add creative touches to your wedding. Whether it is a self-serve dessert table, or a Lego cake topper; there are countless ways to make your day even more special. We wish Beth and Brady a lifetime of happiness together!

5 DIY Centerpieces for Your Baltimore Spring Wedding!

The Spring wedding season is finally here in Baltimore, so it is essential to make sure your décor aligns with the warm weather. Below are the 5 best DIY centerpieces that will help remind your guests of the blooming outdoors, and the adoring couple growing their love right along with it.

1. Paper, not plastic - This bright Paper Daffodil  Bouquet will make any table gleam, as the hand-made paper flowers are held by a decorated mason jar. Tying the piece together is the green yarn that serves as the perfect table card holder. Black paper and chalk will make this an easy way to organize your guests in their table settings.

See how to create this Paper Daffodil Bouquet at Saved By Love Creations

2. Just add sprinkles… Want a playful way to entice your guests to look at your centerpiece, while subconsciously getting them ready for dessert later? Create these Sprinkle Centerpieces by buying a variety of vases- tall, small, short and wide; then add sprinkles to the vase. The type of sprinkles is the bride and groom’s choice, of course.

3. Vinyl isn’t just for records… When guests arrive at your reception there will be no confusion as to what number the table is with these Table-Number Centerpieces. Enamel pails with green and white hydrangeas are the perfect centerpiece for the spring wedding season. By adding self-adhesive vinyl numbers to the buckets, allows for the guest to have a pleasant experience finding their tables. The numbers are available in various sizes, colors, and fonts.

To see the full how-to, visit Martha Stewart’s Weddings Page.

4. I’ve got a bright idea... Looking for a unique centerpiece that will really “wow” your guest? Assemble upcycled light bulbs to shine through to your guests, and accompany it with small vases of flowers. Using white flowers for this centerpiece will emphasize spring, and perfect the battery-powered light bulb centerpiece that you built yourself.

See how to make this centerpiece at Warm Hot Chocolate’s blog.

5. Spring in a bag… This beautiful centerpiece will allow for the focus to be on the spring flowers. Purple tulips, violet hydrangeas, lilacs, and lisianthus are placed in a wide-mouth vase. Then, place the vase in a paper bag. It is really that simple, and the outcome will be the perfect addition to your spring time wedding.

Full instructions can be find on the Better Home and Garden’s website.

We hope you were able to find some inspiration for your spring wedding. Can’t get enough? Contact one of Zeffert and Gold’s event designers to help you create an event that will exceed your expectations!

Baltimore Weddings

On Saturday April 5th, Zeffert and Gold Catering had the pleasure to work with Dan and Amanda as they celebrated their wedding with friends and family at the Cloisters Castle in Lutherville. Amanda and Dan had a beautiful outdoor ceremony and then moved inside for dinner and dancing. Guests dined on delicious food (some of which can be seen below), drank perfect cocktails, and danced the night away with family and friends. From the first meeting that we had with Dan and Amanda we knew that they would be awesome to work with, and they truly were. The small wedding details that they designed really set the room off and created the perfect backdrop for their awesome wedding. We wish Dan and Amanda nothing but happiness as they start their life together.

Baltimore Wedding Catering: Charming Wedding at the Baltimore Museum of Industry Waterfront

Baltimore's Best Caterer

On a beautiful October day, Elizabeth and Joe walked down the Museum of Industry pier to take each others hands in marriage. Everything that happened that day seemed to be pure magic. From the gorgeous weather, to the amazing view of the Baltimore waterfront, and lets no forget about the delicious catered food…this wedding really had it all!  Of the many special touches, the one that stood out with this wedding, was their idea to involve charities in lieu of wedding gifts. The couple gave each guests a cork, which they were to put in a bin to represent their choice. The couple divided their donations to each of the charities based on the number of corks their guests put in each bin. Talk about a special touch to an amazing Baltimore wedding! Zeffert and Gold Catering is happy to have worked with Beth and Joe and wishes you a lifetime of happiness together!
