I had the pleasure of photographing an absolutely beautifully styled and catered luncheon last week for wedding planners and event coordinators at one of my most favorite Baltimore venues, the Evergreen Museum & Carriage House. It was so inspiring to see such gorgeous work by so many of my colleagues. The furniture and vignette designs from Vintage Affairs LLC and the vignette designs and floral arrangements by My Flower Box Events, LLC were truly something special. And I’m still imagining gathering my family for Thanksgiving around this bare wooden table (pictured above) set exquisitely and elegantly with silver, crystal and candles for one of the vignettes staged in the Carriage House stalls. The full collection of 150 photos is available here. But here are a few highlights and a few of my favorites: EvergreenPlannersLuncheon_0002-0001_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-And-Carriage-House_Evergreen-wedding_Baltimore-wedding-photographer_Baltimore-wedding-photography
