Lauryn and Gavin are one of those couples that just instantly brighten any room they walk into. They both have wonderful, cheerful dispositions and are incredibly funny! I have loved getting to know them and witness their witty back and forth banter, while loving each other fiercely. It was such an honor to photograph their beautiful blush and navy Celebrations at the Bay wedding this past summer!

Lauryn and Gavin are a classic couple so their wedding represented them perfectly – classic elegance with a modern twist. Soft, blush details and florals balanced with strong navy touches overlooking the beautiful Chesapeake Bay.

Lauryn chose to wear a beautiful ballgown silhouette with a beaded bodice, and she looked like royalty!

Gavin’s wedding look consisted of a classic navy blue tux with a blush bowtie.

Lauryn’s first look with her dad and then with Gavin were such incredible moments.

What a good looking wedding crew! This group was such a joy to work with – they truly made the day that much more fun!

Celebrations at the Bay weddings have one of the best views around, hands down!

The Chesapeake Ballroom was beautiful decorated with blush and blue linens and romantic candles adding to the ambience.

With views like this, we couldn’t resist some sunset portraits on the pier.

Lauryn & Gavin chose to step away from their reception for a few moments of privacy to simply soak it all in. I’m so happy to have caught a sweet glimpse of them through the window, without interrupting their peace.
