Wedding: Emily + Tim, Part 2

After the wedding ceremony at St. John the Evangelist, Severna Park, MD, the Bride and Groom, Emily and Tim, and everyone else head out to Historic London Town and Gardens. London Town is a beautiful historic waterfront venue at Edgewater, in Annapolis, Maryland area.

This is Tim and Emily during their first dance. I just love seeing their happy and loving expression here.

Love the warm orange and yellow color palette of Emily’s beautiful floral bouquets which perfectly matched the color of the Matron of Honor and the Bridesmaids dresses.

After the Bridal and Groom party and the romantic photo session, next was the speech from the Matron of Honor, Janessa, and the Best Man, Tim. Yes, his name was Tim also. πŸ™‚

Next was the speech from Emily’s Father, Steve.
His speech was the most beautiful and touching speech I have ever heard from a Father of the Bride. A lot of people shed tear listening to the speech. I almost shed a tear too, keyword “almost”. Well, I had to keep myself together because I need to concentrate on getting beautiful and emotional pictures. πŸ™‚

I will “reveal” some of Steve’s speech below.

The song played here was Steve and Emily’s favorite and memorable song, Brown Eyed Girl from Van Morrison.

There’s a reason that they picked this song for the Father and Daughter dance. During Steve’s speech, he said:

“When Emily was a baby, I would hold her in my arms and dance…

-you know how you dance when you know no one’s looking?

That’s how we used to dance.

We would dance to Brown Eyed Girl – only when she was a baby, her eyes were blue so I would change the words to Blue Eyed Girl.

Destiny? Fate? As she grew up, her eyes changed to brown – and we still danced, but I didn’t have to change the words…

Now she’s grown into a beautiful brown-eyed girl.”

Just from reading this again, I almost shed a tear…

Next on the agenda was the Anniversary dance. Tim’s grandparents beat all of the other couples because they were already married for 59 years at that time. Just last October, they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary!
You can see how happy they were as a couple here. I just love seeing their happy expression. Happy being together.

If I remember correctly, Emily and the others were singing “Bye Bye Bye” from N’Sync, which explains the hand gestures. πŸ™‚

Escorted by their parents, Emily and Tim went to the boat that had waited for them at the pier.

The boat got smaller and smaller until finally gone from our view. With my long lens and just enough light, I was able to capture them kissing as the boat sailed away.

Congratulations on your new and happy journey, Emily and Tim!

May you live happily ever after!
