I love love courthouse weddings. And I especially love them in Annapolis, which has the most beautiful wedding chapel with big windows, surrounded by a town that has perfect portrait nooks every few feet. Here are a few from some recent Annapolis courthouse weddings.

Mia and Paul have been together forever, like 7 years forever, yet their chemistry and giddiness when around each other would have made me think it had only been a few months (cf their awesome engagement session). The emotion, excitement and thought that went in to this day astounded me. Mia has an impeccable sense of style and she combined that with nostalgic details like using her parent’s cake topper on the cake her mother made, getting married at her grandparent’s house, and a close family friend making biscotti and macarons for late night snacks.
This wedding was also featured on Ruffled, you should definitely click over there for Mia’s thoughts, and more photos including the amazing invitations and a close up of Paul’s awesome custom tie.
I’ve been fortunate enough to call Cat and Karl friends and neighbors for years. They stopped being our neighbors when they bought a rambling farmhouse in Maine and started living their dream. The night before the wedding we stuffed ourselves on Maine lobster. The morning of the wedding friends helped string lanterns, Cat arranged her flowers, and then everyone gathered at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse down the street for the ceremony. Back at the farmhouse wood-fired pizza was made as a bluegrass band played. The weekend was magic. For more photos and a list of the vendors take a look at their feature on Wedding Chicks.
This beautiful day in the Connecticut Berkshires was a highlight of last year’s season. Nadine and Joe’s wedding was full of luxe details while managing to still be completely approachable and comfortable. Rock Hall Bed and Breakfast looks like a medieval estate, which was appropriate since Nadine has, as her friends describe it, a classic Renaissance beauty. The centerpieces on their family style tables, created by Petal Design Studio, made my jaw drop. Eggplant table number holders and fennel in wood baskets? Genius. I also loved their creative invitations from Jen Simpson Designs and Nadine’s unique dress from Stone Fox Bride. Joe owns a restaurant in NYC, so the food was especially important to them. They chose Fire Roasted Catering who roasted a pig on a spit next to the tent all day and ended with apple cobbler baked over the open fire. But what I loved most of all was the warm ease of Nadine and Joe’s relationship and the people around them. I think my favorite photo from the day is the two of them walking back down the aisle, the way Joe has his arm just casually wrapped around Nadine’s shoulder, it’s just so them.
This wedding was also featured on Snippet and Ink, you can go there for more photos and Nadine’s insights and advice for the day.
