Intimate Annapolis Waterfront Wedding – Michael & Alli

It is a great delight of mine today to introduce y’all to the newest Mr. and Mrs. Coppola!

Michael and Alli’s intimate Annapolis waterfront wedding was one to remember… especially because this was the back-up plan!  These two were originally set to be married on Memorial Day this year, but with Covid they had to switch things around.  Instead, they wound up with the most wonderful, intimate wedding in Alli’s parents’ backyard.

From the beginning of the day everyone was so excited that the day was finally here!! It was long anticipated and somehow I think it made it sweeter.  Just like the best things in life, right?

I have so many favorite memories from this day, but, following the sword arch and “I dos”, we got to celebrate by taking a stroll through downtown Annapolis, by boat.  It’s easily one of my favorite things I’ve been a part of.  Each boat we passed had a congratulations for the newlyweds, and a few even shared a special champagne to toast.  It was such a wonderful way to make such a deserving couple feel so loved and celebrated!  And sweet Alli even managed to get her Summer Wind.  What a wonderful 4th of July!

When we arrived back at the house it was time for dinner and all of the fun festivities!  These two sure know how to have fun and made sure to invite guests that did also ;)  I loved getting to watch them all dance the night away.

I could go on and on, but I’d rather you get to see for yourself! So enjoy a peek into Michael & Alli’s intimate Annapolis waterfront wedding!

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

I'M LAUREN
