I challenge you not to smile when you’re looking at these photos. I know it’s a losing battle because I smiled when I took them, when I edited them, and especially when I sent these along to the happy newlyweds.
Eden and Chris both have infectious smiles, and the joy that was spiraling out of them on their wedding day was contagious.
I featured their engagement session here, which was such a fun, authentic experience, but the main event was even better. These two are perfectly themselves and happy to share that with everyone else. It makes shooting and interacting with them a joy.
Making their way from LA to the shores of Maryland, where Eden grew up, these two were prepared to celebrate in style. Eden gave me the keywords to describe the vibe and they were: elegant, whimsical, fun, intentional, and timeless, and I think that really describes their relationship just as much as their wedding aesthetic.
The day itself was a beautiful affair. Hard to go wrong with a backdrop like the Eastern Shore and a space like the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club, but the couple beautifully curated the day. Garden inspired white florals with whimsical, structural shapes, black bridesmaid dresses, black tuxedos, pops of green and blue from the venue, it was a good look.
With a lot of guests traveling from all over the country, Eden and Chris were so excited and aiming to host them with good local food, plenty of strong drinks, and a night full of fun and memories.
Memories were had in spades. Poppin’ bottles in the bridal suite, laughter-filled first looks, the most adorable 1 year old honorary groomsmen (their son), and a heartfelt ceremony with the Chesapeake Bay in the distance behind them, Eden and Chris’ epic wedding was one for the books.
I loved getting to know these two absolutely gorgeous humans and their families, and it was such an honor to be invited! Cheers, friends!
