Anyone who knows me well knows that I am obsessed with boats and especially sailing. I don’t actually really know how to sail, but anytime I see sailboats or container ships, I get so excited and start blabbering about how one day I’m going to sell everything I own and go live on a boat. These outburts are generally met with a fair amount of eye rolling. But I can’t help it, there’s just something about wide open skies combined with salt water and wind that just gets right to my core! So when I went out to the bay to meet with Cristin + Derek before their wedding, I couldn’t help but get SO excited about being near the water all day and getting to cross the bay bridge multiple times in one day! And Cristin + Derek are such sweet and fun people and the day was so gorgeous – how could we not love this wedding! And wait till you see all the details – everything was so perfect!

Thanks to Dana Morgan, my second photographer, for the shots of the guys getting ready!
I loved this little detail – a creative way for the ring bearer to announce to the guests what comes next!
We all headed to the Annapolis harbor for some fun shots and were surprised to find a Corvette show going on!
What a great remembrance for Cristin + Derek to have from their wedding. Derek made these Adirondack chairs with his grandfather and they had all their guests write little messages on them!
There’s something I love about this cute beer shot of Dana’s!
In lieu of a speech, Derek’s brother sang a really hilarious song about Cristin + Derek that he wrote himself
Yay for candy bars!
