Nikia and Andre selected a Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory theme for their Baltimore wedding. The American Visionary Arts Museum was the perfect eclectic backdrop for their whimsical ceremony and reception. We incorporated many elements from the original Gene Wilder movie, like a red carpet for the ceremony, movie quotes on word bubbles, and, of course, an extensive candy bar featuring a chocolate “waterfall.” Literal elements of the movie theme were incorporated too – film wrapped the ceremony arch and “3D” menu cards, complete with classic red and blue glasses, all combined to be a very unique wedding experience.

Janice and her entire staff were spectacular in every way possible. They were very professional, creative and made sure that every aspect of the wedding reflected our wants and visions. Bellwether Events exceeded our expectations.-Nikia and Andre
