Sophisticated USNA Wedding


From the photographer:

Breeda and Joe were both in 30th Company at the US Naval Academy and share an amazing history and friendship. She is now a pilot for the US Marines, while he is helping secure our waterways with the US Navy. We could not be more honored to photograph the marriage of these two Lieutenants. The preparations and reception took place at one of my favorite Annapolis venues, The Westin Annapolis.

Sharon and Lorin from Celebrations, LLC did an amazing job with decoration and coordination of the entire event. It was a dream! Up Do’s For I Do’s styled Breeda and her ‘breedsmaids’, while Joe and his boys made sure their tuxes and uniforms were crisp and clean. The bride wore a stunning gown from Gamberdella Bridal Salon and the girls were in pale pink from David’s Bridal. The wedding invitation, along with the decor was created by Jenifer Sirkis Designs and stunning florals by Blue Vanda Designs.

After prepping, we headed to the US Naval Academy Chapel for a 5pm ceremony. Following the sword arch, we took family portraits in the Superintendents Gardens, Dahlgren and Bancroft Hall, and the Sea Gate on Campus before heading to the Westin to celebrate!
