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!

Rachela and Scott shared a beautiful Mountain Branch Golf Course wedding day – finally! After covid postponed their big day last year, they were finally able to make it official and celebrate on the the most beautiful July day. Rachela and Scott incorporated lots of personal details into their big day, and I especially love the unique celestial and jewel toned touches throughout!

The bride and groom absolutely lit up when they saw each other during their first look on their wedding day, and it was truly a radiant moment. Their love is without a doubt one of the strongest I’ve seen. They were so intentional about making sure they actually spent lots of time together on their wedding day (you’d be surprised how many couples get distracted by all the guests that they barely have time for each other!) and that was so heartwarming to see.

Rachela and Scott, it was such an honor to watch you two become husband and wife and I’m so happy for you both!

Rachela’s crystal tiara was so amazing! She tied the crystals into her reception centerpieces as well – scroll down to see!

Rachela and her dad’s first look was so sweet!

It wouldn’t be Rachela’s wedding without a cat or two! We couldn’t resist pausing to pet this sweet little resident of Mountain Branch Golf Course!

I love all the textures and tones in Rachela’s bouquet and Scott’s boutonniere!

I love the emerald green dresses paired with the burgundy florals and classic grey tuxes!

How incredible do they look?! I mean it when I say these two light up when they’re together!

A sweet ceremony with beautiful Mountain Branch views.

Fun pops of color throughout the reception as well as dried floral and raw crystal accents with handmade soap favors!
