From the Bride… I remember so many special moments from our wedding day…waking up early and taking a walk with my parents, reading a letter from my dear (at that point) fiance, laughing with all my bridesmaids while we prepped, the butterflies in my stomach before walking down the aisle, the disbelief that we had actually pulled this off, seeing every person I care about in this world there to support Jon and I on that day, and, above all, overwhelming feelings of love and humility that all these people would gather to be there with Jon and I. What a celebration of family, of friends, of our shared history at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, and of God’s faithfulness for having brought us to this point. The day was everything I had thought it would be – a showcase of our love and experiences set against the backdrop of all of the individuals who had supported us throughout our lives. A true testament of grace, faith, and joy!

From Elizabeth Fogarty… Mike and Amy wanted their day to be a romantic celebration of love. They wanted their guests to have fun and for their day to be overall relaxed. Their key elements were the flowers and small details, like the adorable pink macarons. These two could not be more perfect together. Mike is a caring gentleman while Amy is such a loving bride. They were all smiles on their wedding day. Amy picked elegant long gowns by Jenny Yoo for her bridesmaids. They were a perfect complement to the gold touches throughout the wedding. My Flower Box events did a wonderful job with the flowers! This Annapolis wedding was one for the books.

From Natalie Franke… Adriana and Kevin have been together since childhood. Their love story so beautifully intertwined that both of their families celebrated this day with joyful tears and beaming smiles. I absolutely loved the moment when Adriana put on her dress, the bridal party portraits at the State House, and seeing her wedding day vision come to life. The incredible team at 2hands studios, where Adriana is an extraordinary planner, came together to make this wedding one of the best I’ve ever experienced!

From the Bride… The theme to our wedding is an elegant garden feel. Soft, romantic, timeless, with pops of our personality and family. Sea foam is the color we selected, because it is relaxing and reminds us of the water. Kevin proposed on a dock!

I wanted something a little fun but not too extreme. We incorporated little touches of family with photos of each married sibling, parent and grandparent on the patio, Kevin’s grandmothers broach on my bouquet, my grandmothers jewelry, and some of our families favorite foods. My bouquet is also wrapped in my mothers veil.
