On Saturday I met up with Sydney and Bobby for their wedding day at the beautiful Chesapeake Bay Beach Club in Stevensville, MD. It was a wonderfully warm and sunny 70 degree day -- in late February! While the bride and groom had been planning for a winter wedding were surprised by warm temps, a crazy early evening thunderstorm, and beautiful sunset that is what dreams are made of.
Sydney started her day at the Inn nearby with all her girlfriends. We then met up with Bobby at the Club for their first look. Doing a first look allowed Sydney and Bobby to take a lot of portraits together, and with their bridal party, and enjoy cocktail hour later with their guests. As we were doing photos before the ceremony the sky got darker and darker and the anticipated storms rolled in. Just as we were finishing bridal party photos the lightning was working its way across the bay -- it was pretty intense! We took cover indoors and photographed a few more photos of the soon-to-be-newlyweds just before their intimate ceremony.
My favorite moment of the day was after the ceremony when the skies cleared and we witnessed one truly spectacular sunset. Sydney, Bobby, and all their guests had a perfect view, and everyone was glued to the windows to watch the sun go down on an incredible day. Their reception was a blast! Complete with a cake and cupcakes by Honey Hive Bakery that tell their love story, a SMORES BAR, and Sydney and her sorority sisters serenading Bobby.
No stranger to moving, the newlyweds will be leaving the US and moving overseas soon for their next adventure. Sydney & Bobby, thank you again for having me as your wedding photographer. I wish you all the happiness in the world! Enjoy your honeymoon!
