We’re so excited to share more of Krystle & Drew’s romantic wedding at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club! The Beach Club is always amazing to work with due to the atmosphere, the top notch service and their attention to details. Krystle herself has high praise for their coordinator Marta –
She made sure we always had a drink in our hands, whether we were taking pictures or dancing, and made it a point to be sure we had a taste of everything we picked out for our guests. We love food, so having everything we chose for our guests already on the table made us so happy!”
Their wedding theme was “relaxed romance” and Krystle & her mom did an excellent job letting that shine through the entire day – a lot of their wedding details were actually DIY but it all looked professionally styled! Krystle carried a bouquet of cream and blush roses, cream hydrangeas, light pink dahlias, and silver leaf eucalyptus that was created by Little House of Flowers. Their beautiful cake was from Peace of Cake and was two flavors – one was vanilla cake with strawberry buttercream filling, and the other was chocolate chip cake with white chocolate & fudge filling.
The happy couple have been together for 13 years and their long courtship factored into the music they chose for their ceremony and first dance – a string quartet serenaded the walk down the aisle with “At Last” and they joyfully danced together to “Best Friend” by Queen!
One of our favorite things about the details of the day (and Krystle’s too!) was the fashion. For her dress, she wanted something unexpected, yet timeless and classic. Needless to say, lace was never an option for Krystle! Her stunning dress by Miss Hayley Paige certainly fit the bill and it’s one of our top gowns from the 2017 season. Drew wanted clean lines and something that he could feel relaxed in, but still sophisticated – so he chose a suit over a tuxedo. They made a fetching pair!
The couple danced into the night with their friends and family, with a surprise appearance (and a very welcome one) by Buddy the Elf! Buddy even took over as DJ for a while. After a romantic sparkler exit, Krystle & Drew jetted off to their honeymoon where they started off with 2 days in San Francisco, then flew to Hawaii and visited Maui, Kauai and the Big Island for 2 weeks of island fun! We had a blast photographing their wedding and hope they’ll give us a call if they decide to have an encore party!
P.S.- As we took their portraits, Krystle & Drew jokingly mentioned how funny it would be if there was a ‘Sharknado’ roaring up in the background of the Chesapeake Bay – so of course we just had to make that a reality! Peep the end of this blog post for a good laugh!
