Wedding’s on the water in downtown Annapolis are served up perfectly when they are held at, the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel, Autograph Collection. This hotel sits on Compromise Street, an iconic waterfront avenue with amazing views of the Annapolis Harbor. Sarah and Daniel decided that they wanted to fully embrace Annapolis in their wedding and this was the perfect venue!
The day began in the hotel with the girls and Sarah’s family getting ready in one of the gorgeous rooms. Sarah was lucky enough to have her grandmother along to help her get dressed for her day. Her grandmother in her blue dress, carefully helped pin a small blue fabric heart into the underskirt of Sarah’s wedding dress. Maybe a piece of fabric from a dress long since worn, but something old and something blue, something with nostalgia and meaning was placed with care and love.
When our bride and groom were dressed and ready, we took them outside along the water to take some pre-ceremony portraits. No worries, Sarah and Daniel chose to have a 2 photographer wedding, we made sure to take their photos separately, so they wouldn’t see each other before the ceremony.
With portraits checked off, our crew headed back through the hotel to the back patio where the ceremony was to take place.
The sky way blue with big puffy white clouds. Sarah, in her white gown against the blue sky looked like a cloud herself as she walked towards Daniel. The two held hands as they were married under the blue sky and beside the blue Chesapeake Bay.
After the ceremony we took a stroll through Downtown Annapolis to visit some beautiful landmarks and snap some portraits of our couple, while guests enjoyed cocktails back at the hotel.
The after party reception was filled with family love and dancing, the cake was cut and another bride and groom are happily wed.
