As if a classic gorgeous Naval Academy wedding wasn’t already my favorite thing ever (as a Naval Academy wedding Photographer), these two people are just about the nicest folks I’ve met. And the love between them is just… sweet! Lauren and Sean met at a going away barbecue of one of Sean’s friends from the Naval Academy, who happened to be a lifelong friend of Lauren. As if that wasn’t enough to intertwine their lives together, Lauren’s brothers and sisters had almost all worked on the farm owned by their his cousins, so they were all very close to say the least!
From the flowers to the decor and almost everything in-between, Lauren and Sean’s nautical Annapolis wedding was a coral and navy blue DIYer’s dream! And the rain that was scheduled to pretty much pour down all day long held off all day until pictures were all done and everyone was safe inside the USNA Officer’s Club for their reception!
All of the subtle nautical details were a dream for an Annapolis wedding photographer to get to play with and photograph!
Lauren got ready at the Loews Hotel in Annapolis and it really made her getting ready time that much more special and luxurious! And of course the rooms at Loews tied right in to her navy blue nautical theme!
I loved having some time for wedding photos overlooking downtown Annapolis in the background!And it wouldn’t be an Annapolis wedding without some waterfront wedding photos on a boat! And it you look closely enough, you’ll see that the boat says “commitment”. So perfect for these two!
