It’s always wonderful to reconnect with someone you knew long ago and especially for a party like this. Rachel and I went to high school together and our paths crossed again when she invited me to photograph her wedding. She picked a perfectly quaint B&B on the Chesapeake Bay called: The Oaks Waterfront Inn. They hosted their rehearsal dinner over the water on a long, covered pier and guests dined on crab and strawberry shortcake. And that meal perfectly represents the place: country romance meets the Eastern Seaboard.
Rachel’s wedding day look was a flawless match to the surroundings. She donned a gorgeous beaded gown with a plunging back and the bridesmaids wore a rich jewel tone that provided the perfect pop against the weathered barns and partially clouded skies. Ivory roses and light pink peonies softened the scheme. You can tell she’s got an eye for the details-down to that rustic rope wrap on the bouquet.
The couple exchanged vows against the water and then invited guests inside for a rich spread, including a deluxe dessert table. The whole day was such a pleasure to document…I love the sweet smiles and the utter elegance that comes through in the photos. To the happy couple: thanks for letting me be part of this stunning day!
