Lauren and Jamie were married on a beautiful June day in Annapolis, Maryland. Lauren’s parents live in a beautiful home near the water just outside of Annapolis. When I arrived. Lauren had the wedding gowns of her grandmother, mother, sister, and her own on display along with her sister Meg’s daughter’s flower girl dress… Absolutely such a sweet and special photo op and I loved seeing the styles of all of the gowns. Aren’t they absolutely beautiful together? Lauren’s parents’ home is just gorgeous too with so many lovely details in their decor…
I love how their save the dates incorporated sketches of the venues for the day…
Lauren got ready with her mom and bridesmaids… The Lily of the Valley in her bouquet along with the Calla Lilies smelled absolutely intoxicating!
This was such a sweet and special moment when Lauren first came down the stairs to see her dad for the first time in her wedding dress.. There were tears of course!
Lauren and Jamie’s traditional ceremony at Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church was very sweet and so heartfelt. Rev. Dr. Susan DeWyngaert, their officiant, was so natural and kindhearted as she led, with a very personal thread throughout their ceremony. I loved the look of this church!
After a super fun ride in the party bus, we arrived at St. John’s College in Annapolis for some bridal party portraits!
Lauren looked so happy and absolutely beautiful! Her eyes sparked along with her gorgeous smile! These two are so comfortable and natural together…
Their reception took place at the Governor Calvert’s House in the heart of Annapolis! Elegant black and white details were set up for their guests, and the Cocktail Hour spread was to die for! There is a long patio in the back of the venue where guests could mingle with their cocktails, accented with hanging lights!
Remember Kim and Jillian from 2014’s wedding season?? Love these two! Kim and Lauren work together! Kim was sporting his wedding day tuxedo… Maryland socks and cuff links included! And Jill always look so cute and stylish!
Sigh, I just love when I get to photograph Cocktail Hour! Always a favorite time of the wedding day for me!
The ballroom was decorated so elegantly with white and green floral accents, and black and white striped ribbons around each guest’s napkin.
After three heart-felt and funny speeches from Lauren’s father, sister, and Jamie’s best friend Stephen, the night continued with their special dances, delicious cake, and a non-stop hoppin’ dance floor!
To send off the newlyweds to their Bora Bora honeymoon, everyone illuminated their path with glow sticks as they went on their way!
It was such a fun day with so many memories… We are so grateful to be part of your special day, Lauren and Jamie! Best wishes to you both! :)
