Alex and Chris were married in a beautiful waterfront ceremony in May at Silver Swan Bayside in Stevensville, Maryland.
These two sweethearts were friends for five years before they realized they were meant to be. Chris proposed to Alex in Canton, Baltimore, where the two have called home with their pup, Bota.
Alex wore a stunning Martina Liana gown, with the most gorgeous long train! She also wore her mother’s veil, and I loved the sweet and emotional moments between Alex and her mother when putting her veil on.
The couple had a beautiful first look with each other with the Chesapeake Bay behind them prior to their ceremony. Alex and Chris shared many touching and heartfelt moments throughout their first look and their ceremony. After they were pronounced husband and wife, they walked up the aisle as their many guests cheered with excitement for them.
The party started with music by the band, Rich & the Roadrunners. I don’t know which made me smile more – Alex and Chris’ first dance, or Alex’s dance with her father. They had a very fun filled reception with a packed dance floor.
At the end of the night, they were sent off to their honeymoon in Bora Bora with an amazing sparkler exit!
Congratulations, newlyweds! Alex and Chris, everything about your wedding day was so incredible! It has been such a joy getting to know you two over the past year, and it was an honor to be your wedding photographer!
