Mary Kate & Jon are MARRIED! They had the most dreamy, fairytale-like wedding on Saturday, and I’m so thrilled to be sharing it today!
Let me start by saying I adore this couple! In the spring, I met Mary Kate & Jon for the first time at Chesapeake beach. I knew as soon as I met them that these two would be a dream to work with, and I was so right! Their style was soft, romantic and beach-y – just a few of my favorite things! On top of that, they were SO nice (and BRAVE) to stick out in the chilly weather for the e-session. It was a cold, windy March morning, and we captured some beautiful photos for their engagement session despite the frigid wind!
A little bit more about Mary Kate & Jon: what a perfect fit! These two compliment each other so beautifully. Jon is gentle and treats Mary Kate tenderly, and she so clearly adores him! I was sure to get a smile out of Jon just by having him look at Mary Kate, and he was so good at getting her to laugh! Seriously, the way they look at each other will melt your heart (just look at the first dance photos!!!).
Soft pinks, romantic roses, & a little bit of sparkle where the themes of this gorgeous seaside wedding. The dreamy color palette and romantic ocean themes were translated perfectly to their cocktail hour and reception. Some of my favorite details were the beach-inspired invitation suite, Mary Kate’s princess-like gown, the seating arrangements on sea glass, and the location of the venue – on a private beach! The cocktail hour made me want to be a guest (check out those hors d’oeuvres!) and the dinner was FANTASTIC (shoutout to Nage, you guys are incredible!).
Oh . . . and did I mention there’s a PUPPY?!
Without further ado, here are some of my favorite snaps from the day!
Jon & Mary Kate, you two planned a beautiful celebration that truly wow-ed your guests! I loved working with you – thank you so much for inviting me to be your photographer!
