Chesapeake Bay Beach Club Wedding – Sarah & Mike

post by nat

Sarah & Mike got married at the lovely Chesapeake Bay Beach Club earlier this month. We had so much fun with them in Richmond for their engagement session last fall, we could hardly wait for their wedding day. We arrived at The Westin in Annapolis to catch some getting ready pics of both the bride and groom before it was time to get in the vehicles and travel across the bridge to the Club. They chose to have a First Look and had such a beautiful day on the bay for pictures even when the sun went down.

French Creek Golf Club Wedding – Elizabeth & Steve

post by nat

Elizabeth and Steve chose the most stunning fall day to say I Do! I mean the whole week before it was calling for rain, and I think we even had a few drops threaten us until after the ceremony. We arrived at Elizabeth’s parents house to a flurry of people getting ready and chasing kids and you could feel the excitement in the air. Once Elizabeth was in her dress I got to ride with her and her parents in the limo over to the church. Steve was nervously waiting for his bride, but I’m pretty sure as soon as he saw her walking towards him down that aisle all nerves were a distant memory.

After they officially became husband and wife the sun came out and cast a perfect glow on them throughout their entire portrait session! French Creek looked amazing as always, and we had the most beautiful sky as a backdrop for these two. All too soon it was time for Elizabeth to be bustled and them to be announced into their reception. The night was filled with love and laughter and dancing and joy. Elizabeth and Steve, it was perfect!

Invitations, shoes and jewelry.
