Chesapeake Bay Beach Club Wedding Ceremony: Casey + Todd

I really enjoyed photographing Casey and Todd’s engagement session at Annapolis. It was a lot of fun and they always made me smile or laugh. If you haven’t seen the photos, you should! You’ll see what I mean. 🙂

Well when I photographed their wedding, it was not that different either. In fact, there were a lot of funny moments. Both sides of the family and friends were all goofy and playful most of the time. They sure made the day really entertaining! 😀

As for the wedding ceremony and reception, Casey and Todd decided to celebrate them at the prestigious and famous waterfront venue on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club.

Casey and Todd decided that they wanted to do first glance before the ceremony.
I really loved it when Brides and Grooms decided to do this because they would then be able to have a time alone and express their emotions when they saw each other the first time. Photographing their reactions would be priceless. 🙂

Casey was wearing a special Bride sandal suitable for walking on beach sand.
I couldn’t imagine if she had to wear high heels on the beach. 🙂
