If there was ever a thought in my mind that there is a strong relationship between being by the water and connecting to some sort inner peace or harmony, Riane & Sam‘s wedding on the Chesapeake Bay confirmed it. I arrived at Wades Point Inn on the Bay in St. Michaels, Maryland and was overwhelmed by this amazing, palpable sense of calm. It lingered throughout the day alongside nervous excitement, laughter, tears, love and pie, of course. A special thanks to Joanna Day Photography for making the trip from Minneapolis to come and shoot some lovely images with me.
Before their wedding, Kate & Erissa got ready together in their home. They shared the bathroom mirror for makeup, zipped each other into their dresses, and walked a few blocks to the park where they would be wed. From the park, freshly married, they wandered through the streets of Charles Village in Baltimore and got close in the ivy-covered alley ways that we passed by. We made our way to Joe Squared, a dive bar and pizza place with great vibes and an awesome stereo system and danced the Sunday afternoon away. Thanks so much to Kate & Erissa for having the courage to be 100% true to themselves on their wedding day, Joe Squared for the damn good pizza and beer and Elicia Bryan Photography for coming along and shooting some lovely images.

Thanks so much to the darling couple for inviting us along, Camp Hidden Meadows for the lovely setup, West Virginia for the gorgeous backgroup and my darling associate photographer Elicia Bryan Photography for some wonderful photos in the mix.
