Meredith and Jordan’s Naval Academy Club wedding was a winter showstopper coordinated by Wedding Savvy Wedding Consultants! The bride wore her hair, done by Dorsey Beauty, in a classic chignon, pinned up with a floral crystal pendant. Around her neck Meredith wore pearls, a simple and elegant statement. Her fit and flare dress designed by, Matthew Christopher and purchased at Bridals By Lori, had off the shoulder sleeves, and an open back leading down to a beautiful train.
The couple-to-be’s mother’s dressed in glacial blue tones, keeping us enchanted with winter wonderment. Meredith and Jordan set the winter scene even more with their Christmas red color scheme. The six bridesmaids wore beautiful holly-red gowns by designer Alfred Sung purchased at Bella Bridesmaids, and carried bouquets filled with red and pink holiday roses, designed by Cache Fleur.
The bride’s mother spent the morning helping Meredith get dressed and making sure no detail was overlooked. The groom and his parents got ready in a separate location, keeping with the tradition of the bride and groom not seeing each other before the ceremony.
Meredith’s father escorted her down the Naval Chapel’s long blue-carpeted aisle, shook Jordan’s hand and lovingly kissed his daughter. This couple’s story began when Meredith was a nurse living in Annapolis and Jordan was a Midshipman at the Naval Academy. When Jordan proposed, it was on a bridge over Weems Creek in the Naval Academy yard, so having the ceremony at the Navy Chapel was an easy decision.
The day ended with a beautiful reception at the Navy Officer’s Club. These two consider themselves old souls and history buffs, so their classic and vintage love theme was seen throughout. The guest’s seating included holly leaves intermingled with red and pink roses, set as a runner down the middle of each table. Each laced-china place setting was adorned with a vintage key, tagged with lovebirds, set atop a Christmas-red napkin, folded with a pocket to hold the evening’s menu.
Meredith and Jordan also drew inspiration from photos of their grandparents’ and parents’ weddings, as well as the 78 RPM records of Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and Frankie Valli that they love playing. They thought it was really cool that their mothers’ and grandmothers’ still had their wedding dresses, so they displayed them for all guests as a show of wedding dresses through the decades.
This couple kept their guests happy all night with dancing to music by the Doug Segree Band and offered custom drawn caricatures for guests to take-home as a souvenir. When it was time for cake, the groom first sliced up his unique George Washington cake and then sliced through a gorgeous floral buttercream wedding cake baked by Cakes and Confections Bakery.
