Steph and Dan said “I do” at Bleues on the Water outside Annapolis, Maryland. The gorgeous fall foliage made the perfect backdrop to their wedding day and though the forecast called for rain, it held off long enough to capture portraits on the venue’s private dock before the ceremony. They exchanged vows under the shelter of a wooden porch with hundreds of Strung Edison lights casting a romantic glow as their friends and family looked on.
Steph was gorgeous in her fitted lace gown with its wide straps and sexy open back. She finished her look with a braided chignon and a single strand of pearls. She carried a bouquet of blush and white florals and her bridesmaids were picture perfect in forest green gowns, each with a different bodice style. Dan and his groomsmen were dapper in gray, Dan paired his suit with a blush tie and his guys sported the same shade of green the ladies wore.
The reception space was decked out in green and blush and Steph and Dan’s sweetheart table was draped in white tulle sparkling with the glow of mini twinkle lights. Pictures of Steph and Dan from throughout their relationship served as centerpieces and in lieu of favors, this generous couple fostered three orphaned baby elephants in Africa. White Russians were the signature cocktail of the day and dessert included adorable mini-cupcakes. Steph and Dan braved the rain to pose for some romantic portraits after sunset and then it was straight to the dance floor to party the night away with their guests. Congratulations Steph and Dan!
