annie + marty: married!

weathering the storm.

mother nature couldn’t keep this couple from thoroughly enjoying their fabulous beach wedding in ocean city, maryland! the weather called for thunderstorms and hail at precisely the time of the ceremony…regardless, annie + marty proceeded as planned: fearless, and determined to wed with their feet in the sand, they tied the knot steps from the ocean, encircled by their friends and family. almost immediately after they said i do, thick, heavy black clouds rolled in, giving us mere moments to snap a few beach shots. as the bridal party ran for cover, annie took one look at the approaching darkness, grabbed marty’s hand and tore towards the ocean – i knew how much they wanted to run along the shore, through the water, and i immediately followed. i was running as fast as i could, shooting and laughing the entire time, feeling so happy to share such an incredible, exhilarating moment with two people so in love, so happy, and so perfect together.

the sky opened up and unleashed the fury of a thousand storms upon ocean city, as we escaped off the beach. the shuttle bus inched along coastal highway at 5 mph through the torrential downpour, escorting us safely to the reception…but not without our having to dash through the rain (yay for umbrellas!) before arriving at harrison’s harbor watch at the inlet. much celebrating followed, with beautiful toasts and incredible dancing – i loved every minute of it! around sunset the skies cleared, and we took advantage of the golden light for some amazing shots…

they kissed, and laughed as bystanders cheered from the boardwalk, and annie + marty had everything they wished for…and more.











and afterwards…to the boardwalk for some of my favorite photos ever!
