Chelsea didn’t think anything of it, but her first date with Jason was actually one amongst a bunch of friends, as they shared a meal together. After meeting through one of Jason’s friends, it only seems natural to be surrounded by those friends as their love progressed. And a little over a year later, the big question was popped in Ocean City! And those same friends were there to celebrate their amazing love as they pledged to love one another until the end of time at their Kurtz’s Beach Wedding.
What a perfect (albeit very hot!) day for these two lovebirds to join together in marriage at Kurtz’s Beach in Pasadena, Maryland! I met the girls at the hotel as they finished their wedding prep – there was so much love and laughter in the air, that I immediately felt like I had known them forever! There was an emotional moment for dad, as he had Chelsea put on his cufflinks for him. And then another one, as Chelsea and Jason had their “First Look”! I can’t say it enough – First Look’s ROCK! The looks on their faces got me a little choked up as they realized that this.was.really.happening and reached for one another for an excitedly reassuring embrace. We were able to knock out almost all of the bridal party & family portraits before the ceremony at the Kurtz’s Beach Bridal Cottage.
After a touching waterfront ceremony, and some beautiful toasts, the rockin party began! Dave Holmes from Event Entertainment kept the dance floor packed, and guests enjoyed the super-fun photobooth! Guests were instructed to use a special hashtag for any Instagram pictures taken with their iPhones, which I thought was really cool!! I was able to steal the new Mr.+Mrs. out for a few pictures of the incredible sunset over the water, which made the high temps of the day, worth it! A fun sparkler exit ended the reception, and signaled the beginning of the after-party!!
Chelsea+Jason – you guys share a love that is sweeter than Mouth Party caramels, and I hope that it only gets sweeter for the two of you. Thanks for allowing me to capture your big day!!
