Christine and Shake’s winter-whimsical wedding at the Hyatt Regency in Baltimore was the BEST possible way to start off the 2016 wedding season!! I have been counting down the days to their wedding ever since I was able to meet them both and photograph their engagement session last summer at a winery in Annapolis.
Their wedding day was elegant and classic, yet laid back. The colors were black and white with silver accents. Christine picked the most gorgeous long, black bridesmaid dresses and gifted each of her girls a custom monogrammed wraps for them to wear for portraits. Her bouquet was decked out in vintage broaches which I learned is called a half moon bouquet. Christine looked flawless in her lace gown with the most beautiful back detail. To finish off her bridal look she wore a beautiful black fur cape.
The winter wonderland theme carried through into the reception space with a striking 5 tier silver and cream cake and hot chocolate favors. Guests enjoyed dinner with the most unbelievable view of the Baltimore harbor.
During the best man’s speech, he mentioned when he saw Christine and Shake’s engagement photos, he had never seen a happier couple. Right then, Christine looked directly at me and said, “Because of Joy!!” I cannot tell you how happy and full my heart was in that moment So yeah, Christine is amazing, and for that Christine, this is for you! Thank you for reading my blog weekly and liking everything I post. Thank you for having the best style ever (like your amazing bouquet)! But most of all, thank you for trusting me with the biggest day of your life. I’m rooting for you and Shake as you begin your life together!
