This day was one that was anticipated for quite some time… These two have spent much their relationship long-distance due to the nature of their careers… Katie’s being an actress out in LA and his time being spent serving our country in the military (thank you!). But no matter how many miles separated them, they remained strong and grew in their love for each other.
Katie, her and Jake’s mom, and her maids all spent time getting ready for the day at the Loews Hotel in Annapolis. Katie’s headband and gown were absolutely beautiful, complimenting each other with their delicate beading and elegant details.
Once she was ready, it was time to leave for the ceremony at Historic Christ Church in Stevensville, Maryland, just across the Bay Bridge! I fell in love with this little chapel instantly… It was like a little gingerbread house! How adorable is this??
Their ceremony was sweet and intimate… led by a friend of Katie’s who led with such a heartfelt loving message to them. Following their sword arch in just a few drops of drizzle, we headed over to the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club!
I loved the way the Tavern Room was decorated. Burger cookies were set at each guest’s place setting, and tables were named after coastal locations around Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
This bridal party was a blast!
Gotta practice those moves for the dance floor!
Sigh… How beautiful are they?? Katie you are just flawless!
They walked along the beach just smiling, talking, and enjoying each other… They were so relaxed!
After their first dance and speeches, her father sang to her which led into their dance together. It was so sweet!
These two loved to dance and so did their guests! Their reception was so lively and fun…
And what better way to end a 4th of July weekend than with a sparkler exit??
We loved being part of this amazing wedding day… Best wishes to these two! May life bring you nothing but the absolute brightest and best!
