Lovingly referred to as a “Baltimore merger” by their parents. This luxury tented wedding was a dream for the A. Dominick team.
Sophie and J.D.’s perfect September soirée encompassed an enthusiasm for their home state of Maryland, in a setting familiar to the couple since childhood.
The festivities began with the couple exchanging vows in downtown Baltimore’s St. Ignatius church, where Sophie’s own parents had become Mr. and Mrs.
Followed by dinner and dancing at the bride’s parents house.
Family and friends were invited to the reception and to discover their seat at the wall of Old Bay; an indiscreet nod to the couple’s fondness for Maryland blue crabs.
At each place setting, a delightful blue crab place card clung to Champagne flutes and a monogrammed napkin delicately embroidered with the couple’s crest was the perfect finishing touch.
Custom cummerbunds adorned with Maryland’s favorite crab element were proudly worn by J.D. and his groomsmen, which included both couple’s brothers and fathers.
A treasured family heirloom, the car became a key feature of the couple’s love and marriage, appearing on both their invitation suite welcome bags!

Tiny crab illustrations, a custom monogram and a hand-drawn map on the invitation liner are just a few of the amazing details they incorporated into their wedding day!
Happy First Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Nelson. We wish you a lifetime of happiness, laughter and love!
