Hi, I'm mandi.
Welcome to the Chesapeake Charm blog, a journal about recent sessions and maybe a little bit of behind the scenes, too!.

Don't forget these special items to be photographed first thing on your big day!

You may recognize Jenna as one of my second photographers and closest friends! She and fiance Nick are two of the funniest people to be around. While Jenna dealt with the hardships of postponing her own clients’ weddings, they stayed busy throughout 2020 hoping and praying that their November wedding would not be affected by covid. Unfortunately, they had to make the tough decision to postpone their wedding celebration like so many other couples. When I heard she was planning to still marry her fiance on their original wedding date, I insisted on coming to snap some professional photos!

They had a beautiful little ceremony at Fingerboard Country Inn, a charming historic property with lots of land…and farm animals! They had many rooms for their guests to stay, lots of outdoor seating for safe gathering…a perfect option for an intimate wedding. They said their vows under a gazebo with some sweet neutral fall decor surrounded by their closest family & friends. Nick’s dad officiated the wedding to make it even more personal. Jenna wore a romantically stunning BHLDN gown with her long hair in a tousled braid adorned with delicate floral details.

It was a beautiful and laid back day and I’m so honored I got to see one of my closest friends make it official despite all the challenges they faced. I can’t wait for the big party later this year!!!

Wouldn’t be a wedding with these two without a cat involved! If only Stripes and Duncan could’ve been there!

Nick’s reaction to seeing Jenna come down the aisle was too cute!

They shared a sweet first dance as husband and wife.

Jenna got a new dress for her intimate wedding – and it was incredible!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Nava!
