Date: March 29
Her story: Honor Reeling, 26, grew up in Fallston and Bel Air. She works in human resources at Sinclair Broadcast Group in Hunt Valley. Her father, Wilber Reeling, lives in Perryville. Her mother, Kimberly Wagner, and stepfather, Charles Wagner, live in Bel Air.
His story: Adam Dundore, 28, grew up in Lancaster, Pa. He is an outside sales representative for Osteohealth, a worldwide dental product distribution company. His mother, Linda Dundore, lives in Reinholds, Pa. His father, Lee Dundore, died in 2009.
Their story: Honor and Adam met in the spring of 2006 while they were both students at Kutztown University in eastern Pennsylvania. Honor, a freshman at the time, was pledging the Kappa Rho chapter of Delta Zeta sorority at the university. Following tradition, her pledge class interviewed members of different fraternities on campus to pick a "sweetheart" — someone who would represent and host events for the class. Adam was in his sophomore year and was president of his fraternity, Sigma Pi.
"There were 13 of us in my pledge class, and I remember sitting there on his couch in his fraternity house asking him all these interview questions and being like, 'Oh, my God, he's the one.' I fell in love," Honor says.
Her sorority sisters eventually voted Adam to be their sweetheart. A few months later, Honor asked Adam to accompany her to the Delta Zeta spring formal, which they both consider to be their first date.
The proposal: In November 2012, Adam arranged a weekend stay at a cabin in the Shenandoah Valley in northwestern Virginia. That Saturday morning, Adam proposed by the cabin's fireplace with an engagement ring that belonged to Honor's mother.
The couple spent the rest of that day at the nearby Wisteria Farm & Vineyard . They now live in Canton.
Venue: About 130 guests attended the ceremony at St. Mark's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Station North. A reception followed at Tabrizi's in Federal Hill.
Flowers and decor: "I always hate when people cut off flowers and they just die at the end of the wedding," Honor says.
She says she wanted to cut down on waste, so instead of traditional floral centerpieces, she chose potted "tablescapes" from Flowers by Lucy in Aberdeen. The arrangements, designed to look like they were growing out of the center of the tables, each featured a white orchid surrounded by moss and leafy green plants.
The couple chose to keep the remaining decor minimal, with touches of their monogram used throughout the wedding.
Her dress: The bride wore a sleeveless, mermaid-cut gown with Queen Anne Venice lace, a sheer, buttoned back and a chapel length train by Justin Alexander from M'Jourdelle & Associates in Towson.
She also wore a pair of gold pearl-drop earrings that were the first gift she ever received from Adam.
Bridesmaid's dress: Honor's sister, Cristol Wagner of Bel Air, wore a pistachio green chiffon, floor-length gown with a lace bodice and draped waistband from M'Jourdelle & Associates.
Men's attire: Adam and his brother, Kyle Dundore of Reinholds, wore matching gray three-piece suits by Perry Ellis from Macy's. Adam wore an ivory tie and Kyle wore a pistachio green tie.
Music: AJ Productions of Baltimore entertained. Honor and Adam's first dance was to "Just the Way You Are" by Billy Joel.
Food and dessert: Tabrizi's provided filet mignon and crab cakes for dinner, in addition to appetizers.
Patisserie Poupon in Jonestown made a three-foot-tall croquembouche cake, a traditional French wedding cake comprised of cream puff pastries bound by melted caramel and stacked into a pyramid.
The bakery also provided assorted mini pastries to accompany the croquembouche.
Favors: In lieu of favors, Honor and Adam made a donation to Patterson Park. "We play tennis there, walk to the pagoda, look at the flowers. … We were champions of the kickball team a couple years ago, so it has a lot of meaning for us," Honor says.
Special touches: After dinner, Adam offered the guests personalized cigars decorated with his and Honor's names and monogram from Humidour Cigar Shoppe in Cockeysville.
