Renee and Chris met at Homecoming at Lebanon Valley College. They had known about each other but didn’t officially meet until then and hit it off right away. Their story progressed and they found themselves engaged and looking for a place to get married. They knew they didn’t want a barn, corn field or ballroom, because that’s just not who they are! So they went to the water.
Chesapeake City is a place they have come to often in their relationship and they thought the Chesapeake Inn would be the perfect setting for their reception to celebrate with their friends and family. They chose a private garden in a different part of town for their intimate ceremony (just family and close friends). Their navy, light grey, ivory and blush colors were perfect for the outdoor setting!
Renee was so looking forward to seeing if Chris would cry as she walked down the aisle towards him, and her wish came true :) And they both had the day they were looking forward to, surrounded by their friends and family, celebrating their wedding with those they love. It was a gorgeous August Day on the Bay!
Chesapeake City, from the bridge…..Matt made me drop him off on the bridge for this one, but there was too much traffic to pick him back up so he found the stairs to walk back down to town ;)
Renee’s dress was so perfect for her thanks to In White.
The girls and guys had a beautiful setting to get ready in at the Blue Max Inn.

One last dance at the end of the night.
We took Renee and Chris, with their bridal party for a walk to capture the whole feel of the evening on the water. First we have a quite moment between the two of them…..
And then a little sparkler fun with the bridal party!
Such a beautiful couple <3
