I was obsessed with this bride’s Oscar DeLaRenta dress from the moment I saw it! What amazing clean and simple lines while being dramatic at the same time. That’s how you could describe this entire wedding at the St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Downtown Annapolis, Maryland. Before the ceremony we took the bride’s father’s vintage green Mercedes for a ride down to the US Naval Academy and took a few portraits in front of the building where the bride’s father teaches. The architecture on the campus was a perfect backdrop. The groom and groomsmen took a walk from the pier, through the docks and up to the church for some photos.
The ceremony was a traditional Catholic Ceremony at St. Marys, complete with communion. The couple surprised the crowd by being escorted by a bagpiper at the end of the ceremony.
Later in the night the guests enjoyed cocktails inside the US Naval Academy Alumni Hall (Formerly known as Ogle Hall) as we waited for the April showers to taper off. Dinner was outdoors and under the stars, and the table centerpieces were lush white and green florals in blue ginger jars. It was all so elegant and classic, my favorite!
