Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Wedding: Megan + Phil

I covered Megan and Phil’s romantic engagement photo session at a private estate in Easton. If you haven’t followed their stories, please see the blog and find out how they met leading up to the proposal. It’s an epic journey involving a helicopter ride and walk in the canyon!

And now the day finally arrived for me to photograph their beautiful wedding at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay.

Both Megan and Phil were from the Eastern Shore and preferred a local venue where their guests would enjoy the option of having somewhere to stay on site. When they visited the Hyatt, they were extremely impressed by the gorgeous setting, wonderful amenities, and attentive staff. All the things which eased their choice in selecting the Hyatt as their wedding venue.
