Corinne and Matthew’s elegant and classic wedding on Saturday, December 14, 2019 was held inside of the gorgeous Naval Academy Chapel, and afterwards, they hosted a memorable celebration at The Westin Annapolis.
Their wedding day encompassed so much beauty. Corinne selected the most stunning emerald green Alfred Sung gowns for her eight bridesmaids to wear! Her choice of all-white florals with greenery, used in all of the bouquets and adorning the reception tables, really added to the elegant feel of the wedding. The Naval Academy Chapel was so beautifully decorated for the holidays with two large Christmas trees at the alter along with a luxuriant amount of poinsettias!
Corinne and Matthew opted to do an intimate first look outside of the Westin, and Matthew’s reaction to seeing Corinne in her Maggie Sottero dress from Love Couture was priceless! Shortly thereafter, the wedding party boarded the limo bus to travel to the Naval Academy, and we photographed their portraits and the bridal party photos around the yard prior to the 4 o’clock ceremony! As the sun was setting, they ended their ceremony with an epic Arch of Swords on the steps of the Chapel, and Corinne and Matthew’s happiness was especially exuberant!
Congratulations, Corinne and Matthew! It was truly such an honor to photograph your amazing winter wedding, and it has been an absolute pleasure to work with you both over this past year.
