What a wonderful wedding to start the season with! These two lovebirds have been together for 17 years! After a long romance in the summer of 2015, Joan proposed to Tim on their boat with the light of a thousand candles and their children’s cheers from their dock. While neither was looking for love, Joan and Tim met out on the water where Tim was captioning the boat Joan had been assigned to. With a mutual love of the water, biking, and hiking, it was a match meant to be!
There wedding day couldn’t have been more beautiful (especially considering the previous weekend it had snowed!). Along with their family, they made a lot of the decorations too! Even creating custom cocktails for the event (mojitos and Italian guava bellinis). They even had the florist create a beautiful floral piece around a piece of driftwood they had found. The wedding was held in their backyard right on the water in beautiful Calvert County, Maryland. It was rustic, but chic with tiny touches of elegance throughout. They even set up a popcorn machine with Italian sodas and a movie screen to boot!
Guests watched these two get hitched, with heartfelt speeches from their children and touching moments between them. Joan’s grandson even walked her down the aisle. After their first kiss was shared, a big family hug was had by all! Hugs, laughter and smiles were shared between friends and family at the reception. You couldn’t find a sad face in the crowd! At one point, Joan even tried to pull Tim into the water! What a fun wedding this was! I couldn’t have been happier to have this be my first wedding of the season. So without further ado, I give you Joan and Tim’s wonderful Maryland wedding:
This is one of my favorite wedding moments. The bride’s granddaughter had drawn her a picture and she’s giving it to her grandma right before the wedding. The look on her face as she gives Joan the picture is just priceless.
