I'm Candace and I'm a destination wedding & portrait photographer based out of the Washington, D.C. area. Chances are you won't find me in the DMV for too long. Come and explore my corner of the world with me!
Lets go ahead and flash back to last week. Chris + Shannon threw one heck of a Chesapeake Beach Resort + Spa wedding and even though I’m a few days late with sharing this with you guys (heyyy sitting in Europe as I type this) but better late than never, am I right? These two are surrounded by nothing but love. From Shannon’s daughters, to their parents and their friends who surprised Chris with a surprise video chat with one of his best friends thats currently stationed in Japan, these two are so clearly loved by everyone they meet.
These two also left no stone unturned when it came to their beachy themed celebration. The views of the Chesapeake Beach resort don’t hurt either. Their beautiful, sand filled center pieces, the ADORABLE Adirondack chairs in the sand as escort cards and their beautiful cake that I assume was delicious (diet life). I loved every detail of their day. I think if I had to choose just one moment, I would say the first look that Chris shared not only with his new wifey, Shannon, but her daughters. You can tell how close they are together and watching them tap on his shoulder and him reel them in with a big hug tugged on the heart strings.
I also have to mention how much these guys party! The moment the dance floor opened up it was nuts. Crowe Entertainment had the entire dance floor packed and I think these could easily be some of my favorite reception photos ever. I love drunken shenanigans. Hoping these two are enjoying their honeymoon . I love them both and cannot wait to get these back to them. Enjoy this little glimpse into their perfect day.
