Rachel and Nick finally got to have their wedding day! After postponing from last December, they were married on an unseasonably cool July day at Governor Calvert House right on State Circle in Maryland’s capitol! The breezes were plenty and so were the smiles. Rachel and Nick chose to highlight the beauty of their Historic Inns of Annapolis wedding by accenting the venue with lots of lanterns, pretty blush florals, blue details and sparkly accessories!

Rachel and Nick included many personal touches throughout their wedding, including these heirloom rings from Rachel’s mom and grandmother.

Rachel’s mom was present not only in their hearts but in lots of photos around the venue.

Our bride shared a very sweet first look with her dad, which had me in tears instantly!

They had a small wedding party, but big personalities! We had so much fun with this crew!

Rachel looked beyond beautiful in her gown! The State House made a great backdrop!

Sweet signs, photos, and personal touches everywhere you looked throughout Historic Inns of Annapolis’ Governor Calvert House!

They had their first dance under the twinkle lights where they also said I Do!

The evening was full of so much fun and laughter! Truly a joyous celebration!

The newlyweds chose to share a private last dance while their guests lined the halls for wish them farewell. I absolutely love that they did this! What a beautiful way to end a stunning Historic Inns of Annapolis wedding day!

Once the guests said goodbye, they hopped in a beautiful vintage Rolls Royce and headed off to their honeymoon!
