When Megan and Mike first got in touch with me about their Chesapeake Bay Beach Club wedding in Maryland, I was so thrilled – they were planning a really fun outdoor wedding with a religious ceremony, a live band and even the most amazing dessert bar. Megan and Mike seemed like the sweetest people and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!
I began the morning at The Inn at Chesapeake Bay Beach Club, where the bride was getting ready, and it was so relaxed, because everyone was in a good mood. Megan wore the most beautiful white gown with detachable lace sleeves for partying later and Mike wore his Army dress blues and they looked so perfect.
The wedding took place at Our Mother of Sorrows Church, and was a traditional church ceremony. They had a hispanic wedding tradition where they groom gave the bride 13 arras (coins), which was so unique. The groom giving the coins signifies his willingness to support her and trust in her. After the ceremony there was a big cheer from everyone as they were all smiles walking back down the aisle.
The wedding reception took place in the Sunset Ballroom at Chesapeake Bay Beach Club, which they’d decorated with what the bride described as berry toned bliss (pinks and blues). It was beautiful.
It was a beautifully sunny day, which was perfect for photos. While the guests enjoyed the cocktails, we wandered around the venue doing fun and creative portraits. My favorite photo from the portrait time is one where Megan handed Mike her bouquet and he tried to put it in his back pocket. I love how much he makes Megan laugh.
Megan and Mike met online! And on the day that Megan went into cancel her account, there was a week old email from Mike.They say if you’re planning a wedding, their advice is to always remember that no matter what, it will all work out in the end.
Here’s their super fun Chesapeake Bay Beach Club wedding!

I’m based in Maryland, DC and Northern VA but don’t worry, I LOVE to travel.
I love me a new passport stamp.
