Courtney and Todd started their wedding festivities at Todd’s Oma and Opa’s house in Baltimore, Maryland. The rehearsal dinner was set in the backyard underneath a tent. Right away you could feel the love both families have for Courtney and Todd. Todd’s grandma introduced herself to every guest saying, “Call me Oma.” Immediately, everyone felt like they were a part of the family.

On the wedding day, there were hints of Star Wars, since the wedding was on May 4th. Courtney even surprised Todd with his very own lightsaber entrance to the reception. Courtney’s uncles officiated the wedding at Shrine of the Sacred Heart church. After the ceremony, the wedding party took a limo to the Elkridge Country Club for the reception. Courtney and Todd rode in a vintage car. The Sandbergs know how to throw a party; which I think runs in the family. Oma definitely stole the show with her dance moves.

The reception ended at 8pm, but that didn’t mean the party was ending. Guests were asked to make their way outside for a sparkler exit, and then the party was going to continue on back at the hotel bar. Everyone got in their comfy clothes and continued the celebration.

I don’t think Courtney and Todd could have asked for a more perfect wedding or day. It was exactly as they envisioned, surrounded by their closest friends and family.
