Music: DJ Bill Marsh of Carlysle Entertainment in Savage played music. Jeff and Chrissy's first dance was to "Love of a Lifetime" by Firehouse.

Food and dessert: Chef Daniel Wecker at the Elkridge Furnace Inn made roasted New York strip steak, turkey breast, salmon, rockfish, artichoke cheese dip and mini quiches.

A three-tier cake with caramel pecan, vanilla and chocolate raspberry layers was served for dessert. Tye's Mud Hut in Severn made a cake topper featuring two meeples — board game pieces in the shape of miniature people.

Favors: Guests received a pair of red-white-and-blue dice engraved with Chrissy and Jeff's names and wedding date.

Special touches: Jeff's brother, Rob Marshall, made a woodwork box decorated with Chrissy and Jeff's names and wedding date to hold the rings for the ceremony. Guests signed Jenga tiles instead of a traditional guest book.

The couple hosted a second reception in Idaho for Jeff's family members who couldn't make it to the wedding.
