Michelle and Stephen’s Wedding {sneak peeks} 5-25-2013 Easton, MD wedding photographer

I had the privilege of meeting Michelle at a bridal show in St. Michaels at the beginning of the year.  She is so sweet and we ended up chatting for quite a while that day.  She proudly told be about her fiancé and her plans for her dream wedding.  We talked again a few days later when she booked me as her photographer.  I mean this when I say that it is an honor to be asked to be responsible for capturing a couple’s wedding day.  Stephen and Michelle’s day was no different.  I looked forward to their wedding day with excitement because of what I would get to capture but also the people that I would get to meet and interact with.

Michelle and Stephen had a small window to get married.  With his deployments and his ranger training school appointment they had one weekend when most service men and women have a day to relax and be off duty, Memorial Day Weekend.

They were married before their family and friends in the beautiful bricked garden at the Tidewater Inn in downtown Easton, MD.  It was a picturesque day, filled with laughter, emotions, and simple joy.  Michelle and the Tidewater planned and pulled off an amazing affair.  Patriotic red, white, and blue were everywhere to be seen.  Their closest friends and military buddies were on hand for the ceremony, followed by dinner and a grand celebration in the main ballroom.  One of the most interesting aspects of the day was the memorial table.  A solitary table with no chair, a simple place setting, and a single red rose to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their friends and their country.  Thank you Stephen and Michelle for your sacrifice and your service to our country.

Michelle looked stunning in her Michaela gown from the Dryden Dress Company in Salisbury, MD.  The tables were set with centerpieces that Michelle had made from old records.  The red, white, and blue wedding cakes from Julie’s Bakery in Easton were absolutely amazing.  They partied the night away with Steve Moody who did an exceptional job with his DJ services.  It  truly was an honor to capture the day.  Congrats to Michelle and Stephen.  I am so happy for you and I cannot wait for your preview party so that you can relive your special day through the images that Amanda and I captured.

Enjoy the sneak peeks.
