Oh my goodness am I excited to share some of my favorite photos from Annie and David’s Belvedere Hotel Baltimore wedding!! Yes! I’m so excited!
I got to know Annie and David through their friends, Claire and Corey, (who you may remember from their August wedding – they’ve introduced me to so many wonderful people!). The cool thing about this Belvedere Hotel Baltimore wedding was Annie and David’s connection to the venue. They met at the Owl Bar in the lobby of the hotel! That made it the absolute perfect place to celebrate their Baltimore wedding.
Annie and David are a super sweet couple – they seem to have love and joy emanating from their beings at all times – it’s so wonderful to be around! That must be why they were drawn to each other, and why their Belvedere Hotel Baltimore wedding was full of so much vibrant, loving energy. Y’all, I truly have the best job in the world!
Annie started her day at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront, which was in and of itself one gorgeous venue! Her getting ready suite had wall to ceiling windows that showed off the luminous waterfront views. Her bridesmaids were not only super helpful, but super sweet, which must’ve been so comforting to Annie on her big day.
A few of my favorite things…
There were so many thoughtful, romantic, joyful moments throughout Annie and David’s Belvedere Hotel Baltimore wedding day – from their first look that included tears, their personalized vows (Annie’s brother officiated the ceremony!), the couple having the DJ play both of their parents’ first dance songs during the reception. But I think my favorite part of the day was Annie and David’s first dance!
The newlyweds started off dancing together alone to a somewhat faster paced song than I’m used to hearing for a first dance, which had my interests piqued… and then all of a sudden all of their friends got up and joined them! The crowd danced and celebrated for a good three or four songs before the DJ had them sit down for dinner. It was such a fun surprise and the energy in the room was so jubilant! It was a super special moment.
Congratulations and best wishes to Annie and David! I hope you’re enjoying your Parisian honeymoon!!
Thanks to the team who made Annie & David’s day so warm and wonderful!
