Chesapeake Bay Beach Club Wedding: Lauren & Matt

Last week we got to shoot the most beautiful wedding down on the Eastern Shore of Maryland at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club. The absolutely amazing Sarah Campbell of Intrigue Designs fame sent Lauren & Matt our way & we will be forever grateful to her for bringing two such wonderful hearts into our lives! Lauren & Matt are a DREAM couple for us! They love photography and made that such a priority for the day giving us a TON of time to shoot!

Most brides don’t realize when they look at posts like this that it takes time to be able to get all these shots. They think that it can ALL happen (bridal party photos, family photos, their photos, photos of cocktail hour details & reception details) in just a portion of the cocktail hour. And that’s just not realistic when you are moving that many people around on a wedding day and trying to get amazing photos and cover everything. You need TIME to try out different locations, and be able to style details, and get in to shoot the reception before the guests get there and start putting things on the tables. And Lauren & Matt gave us exactly that….they not only did a First Look which gave us an hour and a half to shoot before the ceremony, but also a two hour break after the ceremony before the reception to be able to shoot some more! It was AMAZING! And their photos reflect that! The fact that this is one of our biggest posts EVER and that’s after days of narrowing & narrowing down favorites reflects that. And the fact that when there was a small delay with the transportation company but none of us had to stress because there was still plenty of time to shoot and get these guys off to enjoy their party reflects that. We LOVE when our couples make photography a priority and give us time to do what we do best…I wish every weekend had a timeline like this!

But that is not the only reason we love these guys. Above all, we love their hearts. We love how they love each other. Like Matt told me before they were introduced, this is not your average kind of love. He would do anything to make Lauren happy, and everything she does is to take care of him. And they love everyone around them just like that too. Their friends, their family….and us. We were seated at a table as guests and treated like just part of the family. And I can tell you, after meeting both of these families these are two families that you WANT to be part of. Spending just a few hours with them, you can tell why Lauren & Matt are the incredible people that they are. These are families who serve the ones who serve them, who call you by name, who make sure you ate dinner, who bring you water while you’re working on the slideshow. They are kind people, full of heart and faith. And we loved meeting every single one of them.

I could go on and on about these guys & their day, but I’m going to let the photos do the talking from here on out. The last thing I’ll say is just WAIT until you see these flowers & decor from Intrigue….she is a GENIUS with flowers! And it was an honor to get to photograph her creations!

Lauren & Matt, we LOVE you guys! We hope you’re having the best time in Hawaii & we can’t WAIT to see you two again!

So much love,
M:)
