Robert + Annie Naval Academy Wedding

They met at the grocery store, and upon seeing her Academy shorts, he began their first conversation.  Little did they know that this chance encounter would lead to a trip to their beloved Naval Academy chapel! On Saturday, in front of family and friends, Robert and Annie promised forever to each other.  Their love is the essence of romance – cozy and comfortable, with a touch of delight! It’s real, and you can see it written all across their faces whenever they’re together.  Plus, with wedding details that would have made Jackie Kennedy proud, their day could not have been more beautiful.  I don’t have words to describe what a joy it was to be a part of their wedding day!  Enjoy a few of my favorites… this is just the beginning! Happy Tuesday, friends!

  10. […] These two are both in the military and were back in the continental US for Aaron’s brother’s wedding.  It was the perfect chance for us to meet for the first time before their wedding in September at the Naval Academy! […]

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
