Annapolis, MD Wedding at the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel | Joanna & Pat

On Saturday I met up with Joanna & Pat for their wedding at the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel.  It was a rainy day with what was left of hurricane Harvey having worked it's way up the east coast.  But a little rain didn't have anyone down!!!  The hotel's ballroom was transformed into an magnificent space for their ceremony and reception, and we found refuge under the covered patio for a few portraits before the ceremony.  After getting ready, Joanna and her father had a first-look that melted my heart and made me tear up.

As world travelers, there were many meaningful details incorporated into their day.  Joanna's mother is from Scotland and they had a bagpiper play during the ceremony.  Joanna also carried a handkerchief from her Grandmother that many of the women in the family have carried during their weddings.  Joanna grew up in Thailand and its a huge part of her life!  During their ceremony the couple received Phuang Malai from Joanna's father, a traditional Thai wedding garland that symbolizes luck, commitment, and the beauty of life in Thai culture.  They also sipped whisky from the Quaich, a Scottish traditional wedding cup, symbolizing shared love and partnership to honor Joanna's Scottish heritage.  Pat is Irish and his mother read a traditional Irish blessing during the ceremony.  The setup, design, and florals of the day are by the fabulous Victoria Clausen - and I was blown away!

To the new Mr. & Mrs. Dowling -- thank you so much for having me, it was an honor!!  Congratulations again, I wish you all the happiness in the world.  Much love, H
