Nautical Maryland Wedding at Port Annapolis – Sheri + Alex

Do you need a little cheering up on this cold and windy day? Well, I’ve got just the wedding to help you see beauty even on days with tropical storms.  Alex and Sheri’s nautical wedding will have wanting to say “ I do” in the rain, and take a walk through the streets of Annapolis, Maryland.  With details of navy blue, stripes and subtle accents of the Maryland crab, this classic wedding will surely give you pin-worthy inspiration.

The day started with each of them getting ready with their family and closest friends.

Their excitement and love for one another was so apparent as Sheri walked along the docks to meet Alex for their first look.  The laughed, kissed and shed happy tears.  It was the perfect moment and just the two of them.

Many date nights were spent walking along the Annapolis harbor.  So, it was important their bridal party portraits included this special location.  Of course, it was only fitting that we stopped at the one and only Annapolis Cigar Company to document how these two met and with Sheri’s best friend that played match maker that one sweet day.

As we headed off to Port Annapolis for the ceremony, Sheri had one last surprise for Alex.  To honor his service as a firefighter, we stopped at a historic building that was once a fire department.
