It was last year in Autumn when Allison and Aaron did their engagement photo session at Annapolis downtown harbor, Eastport, and Quiet Waters Park. At last their wedding day came, and I was really excited to be their photographer, finally was able to photograph their beautiful wedding.
Their wedding was at Matapeake Beach in Stevensville, Kent Island, which was one of the cool venues in Eastern Shore Maryland with gorgeous waterfront view of the Chesapeake Bay.
For the getting ready, the Bride and Groom, the whole wedding party and their families were at the Hilton Garden Inn Kent Island, at Kent Narrows on the Grasonville side.
The Bride, Allison, had her make up done by one of Behind the Veil’s beauty make up team.
Check out the gorgeous detail of the Bride’s wedding gown.
The boys being silly. 🙂
Beautiful view from the hotel room overlooking at Kent Narrows. You could also see the famous Jetty Dock Bar from the balcony. 🙂
The Bride always gets help putting on the wedding dress…
and sometimes the jewelry…
and the shoes.
Allison decided to see her Father and have a private moment together before they walk down the isle.
Cute yellow flower decorations in mason jars for the ceremony site.
Pillow for the ring bearer boy, corsage for the Mothers, and boutonnieres for the Fathers
A cute floral crown of daisies for the flower girls.
The Bride’s flower bouquet has an heirloom pin.
The Maid of Honor, Reed, put on the mesh birdcage veil on Allison.
Allison and Aaron decided not to do a first glance before the ceremony, but they want to hold hands and talk to each other before they see each other at the ceremony.
The Groom spending time together with his Best Man and Groomsman before the ceremony. 🙂
Finally, here comes the ceremony!
The Groom, Aaron, has a big smile seeing Allison the first time in her wedding gown walking down the isle. 🙂
After the speech from the officiant, the Aaron and Allison read their personalized vows.
And they’re officially husband and wife! Yay!
To be continued to Part 2, the reception! 🙂
