Fun Love On The Chesapeake Bay

February 8, 2018

From the bride: "We wanted an awesome party that reflected all of our favorite things about Annapolis. We set this scene with our Chesapeake Bay inspired invitations, and the rest of the details of the day kept the theme. The weekend began by treating our bridal party to a cruise on the Woodwind which was the perfect way to kick things off, and the fun continued from there! The next day, we had our first look in the gardens at St. Mary's, where the bride went to school, then took a party trolley over to Chesapeake Bay Foundation where the whole bridal party enjoyed some pre-wedding time together to eat, drink, dance and hang out. Our ceremony included "flower boys" and a champagne toast, and we wrote it ourselves so it was especially meaningful. We felt lucky to be surrounded by those we love all day: the ceremony was officiated by the bride's aunt, our day of coordinator Heather is sister to one of the bridesmaids and the bride's childhood babysitter, and our amazing photographer, Justin, is one of our close friends, who was kind enough to pull double duty as a groomsman! The reception had open seating in a casual cocktail style that was low on formality and big on having the best time possible. To match the vibe, we served crab cakes and fried chicken, pizza, and a taco bar. Signature drinks were orange crushes for obvious reasons, and whiskey gingers in homage to our college days at the University of Florida, where we met. Our first dance was set to "Lovely Day" by Bill Withers and the song couldn't have been more appropriate on a September afternoon that was 82 and sunny. From there, an epic dance party continued throughout the night that concluded with a grand finale sing-along to Bohemian Rhapsody. We exited to the after party downtown via boat. It was a perfect night full of fun and love!"
