Chesapeake Bay Beach Club Wedding Ceremony: Larona + Ryan

Ryan caught Larona’s eye on the eve of 2009.  She made a point to get his attention that night, and she has kept it ever since.  They were engaged on December 31st, 2012 when Ryan proposed to Larona atop of Mount Tremblant during a snowboarding trip.  This was one of many adventures they had been on together around the world, and they are sure to have many more to come.

To celebrate their big day with their friends and families, they decided that Chesapeake Bay Beach Club would be the perfect waterfront venue for their wedding.

It was a perfect sunny day with some clouds, making the sky a perfect backdrop for the ceremony site overlooking at the Chesapeake Bay and the Bay Bridge.
