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

Guys, my nautical loving heart absolutely LOVED photographing Lindsey and Ryan’s Silver Swan Bayside wedding! Add in the sweetest couple and beautiful warm, sunny weather, and you have a perfect wedding day!

I met Lindsay and Ryan through Lindsey’s sister, Sara, who is a September 2019 Chesapeake Charm bride! When we first sat down to chat about their wedding, I instantly fell in love with Lindsey’s vision for their day! Nautical influences, navy blue details, pops of fluffy white florals, and anchors, rope knots and starfish throughout the venue. They incorporated this theme into their engagement session too – check out their Matapeake Beach shoot here!

Silver Swan Bayside was the dreamiest setting for their wedding day. They were married on a beautiful peninsula on the bay with the sunset on one side and a quiet, calm marina on the other. The warm summer sun shone on us all day long and it honestly couldn’t have been more perfect.

I love Lindsey’s classic details!

They gave the coolest gifts to their parents – Yeti mugs for the dads, and custom blankets and handkerchiefs for the moms!

The recurring theme of anchors, starfish and nautical touches were everywhere! They seriously thought of every detail!

Lindsey and Ryan chose to exchange letters and gifts to one another, and it was such a sweet sentiment! They were both customized, too!

Lindsey chose to do a private first look with her dad, and it was just about the sweetest thing I’ve seen!

I love the calm simplicity of their ceremony setup!

These classic all white bouquets looked amazing against the navy blue bridesmaid dresses! Such a timeless look!

We snuck out for sunset later in the evening…and my gosh was it stunning.

Had to sneak in a cute pic of Sara & Kodi!

Look at this blue heron perched just across the marina!

These rope knot table number holders are SO cute! I want them for my house!

They incorporated this navy blue and white ribbon in a few different places and I love how it tied it all together! *see what I did there?*

Kyle of Mixing Maryland DJs had the dance floor absolutely packed!

We ended the night with a few epic night shots!
