Chesapeake Bay Beach Club Wedding – Liz & Ryan

post by nat

We’ve been anticipating Liz & Ryan’s wedding day for quite awhile now and can hardly believe that it has now come and gone. They started their beautiful day at the Westin in Annapolis getting ready for their wedding at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club just over the bridge.

Liz was absolutely stunning as she walked down the aisle to her Ryan. They had a small bridal party filled with friends and family that mean the world to them. After some special moments, laughs and advice from Aunts and Uncles, the couple said I do, sealed it with a kiss and got ready to party.

The reception was filled, and I mean Filled with all kinds of delicious food. A buffet dinner followed by cake, a candy bar, cookie bar, ice cream sundae bar AND late night snacks including mini milkshakes!! There was plenty to keep all those dancers sustained for a night of epic dancing ;)

Liz chose these awesome Badgley Mischka shoes for her something blue.

Loved all of her details!

Her gorgeous Casablanca Dress.

All of the girls got Toms for dancing shoes :)

A little excited to be saying I do!
