Friends. Family. Colleagues. Schoolmates. Neighbors.
These are the people that we are surrounded by to do life with. These are the ones that interact with us – some more than others. These are the ones that know us, laugh with us, work with us, love us, help up, cry with us, celebrate and walk along side of us.
And so last night, at Allison and Ricardo’s wedding at Water’s Edge Event Center, these same people came together to celebrate their love for one another. Despite the early predictions of almost 100% rain, the weather couldn’t have been any nicer (if you’re a bride worried about the weather, this wedding is a perfect illustration of why I tell brides not to be overly concerned!). From beautiful center pieces, to a good looking group of bridesmaids and groomsmen, to a father of the bride that is secretly hoping someone buy him a boat, to a brother who was roasted in good fun, and to a cake and candy bar to satisfy the pickiest sweet tooth – all of it came together perfectly for a great couple!
Allison looked stunning in her Stella York dress and Klub Nico shoes to match her classic bridal party gowns – an elegant burgundy suite of personalized dresses. Ricardo and the men looked just handsome with black and burgundy tuxes as they stood for the solemn outdoor Catholic service facing a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. With breathtaking Fall colors garnished by a gentle breeze, this wedding couldn’t have gone any better!
