Just like I’m sure any other local wedding vendor does, we secretly jump for joy when we have the opportunity to be incorporated into a ceremony at the U.S. Naval Academy. From the grand architecture to the tiny details in the breathtaking stained glass, this the perfect setting for a true Annapolis love story.
We were lucky enough to service several Naval Academy weddings last season and wanted to share with you some of our favorites.
This bride wore a gorgeous white flowing gown with a strapless sweetheart neckline. She carried white gerber daisies down the aisle, the perfect compliment to her black belt with intricate beading.
To add a touch of flair, each bridesmaid carried a different color bouquet of bright Canadian gerberas. I love this!
The second wedding took place on Memorial Day weekend. Though outside was hot in temperature, this ceremony was calming and classic. The beautiful bride carried simple white peonies, accented by green tea roses from Ecuador.
True to the Naval tradition, bridesmaids wore navy dresses and carried sweet yellow carnations. (P.S. – How cute is their photo?!)
Our third bride carried a gorgeous bouquet of white and salmon peonies from the Southern US. Fun fact: Peony season typically begins down south in mid-April and finishes in New Jersey sometime in late June.
A special thanks to Natalie Franke Photography, she took these beautiful shots of the inside of the majestic Navy Chapel, located on the campus of the U.S. Naval Academy.
Naval Academy weddings held at the Chapel are steeped in such a great tradition; it’s always an honor and an amazing experience to work with these eager brides and grooms!
