Liz & Dan | USNA Chapel

Liz and Dan are a wonderful couple!  Liz is such a strong, amazing woman with a compassionate, funny man by her side.  This Navy couple planned their wedding from across the country, all while the bride worked on her law degree and dealing with the extended separation that comes with being in the military.  Liz is a graduate of the US Naval Academy so they held the ceremony at the chapel. The reception was a huge celebration at the Governor Calvert House, which is one of the Historic Inns of Annapolis.

The couple emphasized how the love and support of their families and friends helped to strengthen their relationship.  Dan’s sister surprised him before the ceremony by showing up with his 5 day old nephew! Along with a moving speech at the reception by his brother, the groom shed a few tears that day.  Along with plenty of laughs and winks for his bride, we had so much fun photographing this Annapolis wedding the 9 hour day flew by!

I don’t know what I did to get so lucky, but we are blessed with the most wonderful couples and the most wonderful colleagues to work with.  Thank you for having us along for the ride of one of the most amazing days of your love story. Liz and Dan’s wedding is a true celebration of love, family and the beautiful city we live in.  Congratulations!

Jenna and Ben met at a restaurant in the Federal Hill neighborhood of Baltimore during the summer of 2012. After graduating from UNC, Ben, who was born and raised in Annapolis, played lacrosse professionally with the Chesapeake Bayhawks for eight years before he began coaching at St. Mary’s High School. Jenna had just graduated from Towson the previous spring and was out at a local restaurant when the two crossed paths.

In December 2015, the couple got engaged during a vacation in the Dominican Republic and began planning one of the most playful, sunshine-soaked weddings we’ve seen in a while. The bride didn’t hold back on her color of choice—fans of pop art-pink will be smitten with the bold, bubblegum pink bridesmaids’ dresses Jenna selected for her squad. The ceremony began at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis before migrating over to the Westin Annapolis for ‘the party of the year.’ A quick glance through the pink, orange, and yellow toned wedding below, captured by Renee Hollingshead Photography, will have you more than ready for some summertime sun.
