What a fantastic day for another Annapolis Wedding! From the moment I met Noel and Lee at our consultation I knew this was going to be a fantastic wedding. Noel is a classic country singer from Nashville and Lee is a recent graduate of the Naval Academy. They are highschool sweethearts and their love is going strong! This wedding had all the ‘A’ list professionals which made this day even more fun to photograph. We started off at a suite in the Loews Hotel where we got some great candids of Noel getting ready.
The impeccable hair and make-up was done by the most talented Amie Decker Beauty. Since the groom literally graduated from the Naval Academy the day prior, it made most sense to have their ceremony at the gorgeous Naval Academy Chapel. What a beautiful place for a ceremony (i love working there for many reasons but Claire is one of the big ones … everything runs ontime and you know what to expect!). Of course we did some amazing photographs all throughout the yard. It was my first time at Mahan Hall and it will not be my last and of course we went to the gardens and Memrorial Hall as well. As always Holly and her staff were impeccable at the Loews Hotel. Noel and Lee chose the Power House instead of the ballroom. It is such a fantastic rustic space.
Now for the shout outs at the reception! Wow, was this full of talented vendors! Allison Barnhill Designs did all the menus and other paper touches, Sarah from Intrique Design and Decor tricked out the most amazing and elegant head table, Fiona Cakes prepared yet another gorgeous and yummy tasting cake and Jacob Jensen from Absolute Entertainment had the party rockin all night! This one will go down in history as one of my all time favorite weddings. Thanks Noel and Lee for letting be the one to capture one of the most memorable days of your lifetime together.
