The holidays are a popular time for wedding proposals, so it’s only fitting that wedding planning season shifts into gear soon after the new year.

Sure, destination weddings can be incredibly romantic, festive and adventurous, but they can also be a big, boring challenge for bride, groom, and guests: planning from afar can complicate the process and take the pleasure out of an already stressful life experience.
But don’t give up the faraway dream just yet. You can actually arrange for the romance of a getaway wedding weekend without renewing your passport. You want waterfront? Quaint brick-lined streets? Eighteenth century mansions? Breathtaking water views? No, not Nantucket. We mean Annapolis, our slightly better-looking cousin to the southeast, a million miles from the look and feel of urban Baltimore, but a mere 30 miles from the city.
Move over Will and Kate, the wedding of the century is happening in Baltimore! Tonight, Thursday, September 13, the Highlandtown Farmers’ Market will host the “marriage” of chips and salsa as vendors I Got Salsa and Frank’s Gourmet Chips tie the knot. Stop by the market at Eastern Avenue and Conkling Street at 6:30 p.m. to bear witness to this perfect union, complete with formal wedding attire, bridal parties and a special guest officiant.
I Got Salsa will walk down the “aisle” of the market wearing a gown from Stella’s Bridal & Fashions on the Avenue as Frank’s Gourmet Chips waits at the end in a tuxedo from Horton’s House of Tuxedos. Following the ceremony, musical guest Artherius will rock the reception. Guests will be treated to special deals on — you guessed it — chips and salsa.
The happy couple is registered at the Highlandtown Farmers’ Market.
