You might remember sweet Jessica and Troy from their gorgeous Downtown Annapolis sunrise engagement session last year! They are such beautiful people inside and out, and have the sweetest Samoyed pup, Maya! I’ll admit I was a little sad to learn that Maya wouldn’t be making an appearance at the wedding, but scroll down to see how she was honored (in three different ways!)
Jess & Troy’s day started at the bold and bright downtown Baltimore hotel, Pier 5. We began by photographing their stunning details. Their modern invitation suite perfectly complimented Jess’ silver diamond jewelry. Things quickly got interesting when the rain started pouring down as we finished photographing details outside! This caused us to move their first look to the balcony of the Pier 5 ballroom – which ended up being so dreamy and overlooking the bay & Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse! We then snapped a few bridal portraits in the ballroom before heading over to Bayfront Club for the ceremony.
Jess & Troy’s ceremony was equal parts romantic and HILARIOUS – just like them! Their friend, who officiated, had the whole room in joyful laughter the entire time. After the ceremony, it began to rain a bit again as we started portraits. Thank God for our clear umbrellas! Luckily the rain was short lived, and we bolted out to the docks to find the most BEAUTIFUL glowing sunset! My photographer heart simply died! These portraits are some of my favorites of all time!
The night ended with a seriously bumpin dance floor that was packed all night long. Jess & Troy, I hope you two have an amazing marriage!
Their first look was absolutely romantic!
These two have the biggest, brightest smiles!
There’s our Maya girl!!!
First looks with dads are always emotional!!!
I see that single tear rolling down, Troy!
Maya appearance #2 – on the officiant’s folder!
I looooove these white and green bouquets against those baby blue dresses!
Champagne place cards for the win!
Their signature drinks named after Maya and their new shared last name!
