missy + mark are married!
they made it official surrounded by their family + friends on the sandy shore at the chesapeake bay foundation – one of my favorite venues – in annapolis, maryland. it was a gorgeous afternoon (even though the wind was whipping around like mad!) and everyone had an amazing time watching this couple throughout the day’s celebration.
and what a celebration it was! mark hails from australia, where he and missy met and started dating, and his family brought the fabulous energy and charm you would expect from our good-natured neighbors down under. and i must say that the americans truly brought the funk – tearing up the dance floor to the righteous tunes of the wild rovers band. let me tell you – there is nothing better than an irish band wearing kilts at an australian/american wedding!
from the moment i met missy + mark i totally dug their vibe – relaxed, down to earth, and totally in love with each other – and i was thrilled that they chose me to document their day. i’m always so amazed and impressed when a bride + groom’s greatest concern is that their guests enjoy themselves and have a great time. i think that is so awesome and it was definitely important to missy + mark. i know everyone had a phenomenal time, and i have the photographs to prove it! from the ceremony + the champagne toast on the beach, to the cocktail hour on the deck and dinner overlooking the ocean and then the rockin’ dance party that followed, the day couldn’t have been any better!
missy + mark: i think the world of you both. your family + friends are amazing and i am so very happy for you! congrats and enjoy!
