We love a pretty Annapolis wedding! Kelly and Kyle were married on Kent Island, Maryland, with a beautiful ceremony overlooking the water as a perfect nod to their childhood near Annapolis.  To complement the venue’s nautical Chesapeake Bay-area setting, Kelly chose a navy blue and ivory color palette together with beautiful hydrangea floral arrangements.  Abby Jiu captured the gorgeous images from the day.

From Kelly:  Kyle and I wanted a relaxed, seaside wedding.  We wanted our guests to enjoy the water and the view of the Bay as we had during our years growing up in the Annapolis area.  We both love to be outside; and being outside on the water is even better.  We kept it simple so that our family and friends would focus on the beautiful setting.





The Silver Swan Bayside is a hidden jewel wedding location tucked away in a marina in Kent Island.  It was secluded and was all ours for the entire day.

We choose navy & ivory as our colors because we love classic, clean, and elegant décor.  I chose navy suits for the guys and navy Grecian dresses for the girls.  I wore an ivory lace embroidered gown by James Clifford which was actually on the Spring/Fall cover of The Knot magazine.

Our bouquets and floral arrangements were done by one of my bridesmaids, Heather, and were hydrangeas in blue, ivory, and green.  Heather and her mother own Willow Oak Flower and Herb Farm in Odenton, Maryland.

Hundreds of candles lit up the reception and we had chocolate crab lollipops from Chesapeake Chocolates as well as nautical cozies with images of the Bay Bridge as our favors.  DJ Kopec kept our guests (and Kyle and I) on the dance floor all night long!
