After photographing Anne and Bill’s engagement session in Annapolis, I was excited that I finally get to photograph their big day at the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel. I truly enjoyed being a part of Anne and Bill’s wedding and document every aspects of it. Right from the beginning of the day, their friends and family had been really nice and accommodating.
The Venue: Annapolis Waterfront Hotel
Anne and Bill chose Annapolis Waterfront Hotel due to many sentimental reasons. Anne grew up in Annapolis. Bill quickly grew to love boating and being on the water as much as she did. They wanted their guests to experience Annapolis how they had – on the water, around boats with cocktails and seafood. The Annapolis Waterfront Hotel was the perfect combination of these memories for their guests to experience.
After Anne had her hair and make up done by UpDos For I Dos, she wanted a picture with her beloved dog, Stew. If you want to see more of Stew’s pictures, please see their engagement photo session.
Anne’s elegant wedding gown was designed by Pronovias from Love Couture Bridal.
It was really touching to see the reaction from her family and the Bridesmaids as Anne revealed herself for the first time in her wedding dress.
The Father of the Bride however, had to wait until the Bride came down near him. Anne’s first look with her Dad was a very tender moment for everyone.
As Anne and her Bridesmaids were getting into the trolley from Towne Transport, suddenly Stew ran out from the house and went into the trolley! Too funny!
Looks like he didn’t want to be too far from Anne, and perhaps would like to witness the wedding! 😀
Sorry Stew, you have to go back to the house!
Their memorable ceremony was celebrated at St. John Neumann Catholic Church, Annapolis.
After the ceremony, the Bride, Groom, the Groomsman including the Best Man and Bridesmaids including the Maid of Honor did few group shots at the dock in downtown Annapolis and at the hotel.
On top of the cake by Main & Market, they had a really cute cake toppers. Obviously, resembling their English Bulldog, Stew. 🙂
During the introduction, each of the Bridesmaids and Groomsman did their own unique performance. Some were really wild and shocking!
Bill and his Groomsman wore these awesome shiny black basketball shoes!
During the reception, the Bride and Groom with their wedding party did a shotgunning of beer drinking together. What a rush!
After the Father-Daughter and Mother-Son dances, it sure felt like a wild party during the open dance floor with moving music mixed by DJ Ivan from Crow Entertainment.
Bride’s flower bouquet, Groom’s boutonniere, the table floral centerpieces and all the beautiful flower arrangements were designed by Bay Blooms.
Congratulations Anne and Bill!
May you live happily ever after! 🙂
