There’s something really beautiful about unconventional, intimate weddings. They’re less cookie-cutter, more focused on the details, more tightly knit. When Meaghan and Chris described their vision for their small, September wedding on the Eastern Shore, I knew it was an affair I wouldn’t want to miss—even though my newborn would be only three weeks old at the time.

So, camera in one hand and pump in the other, I made my way to the serene, waterfront property where the couple was getting ready. Right away, I could feel the sense of family that resonated among the guests, and despite having been hired to document the occasion, I was made to feel like kin. I was grateful to spend my first several hours away from my son with such a lovely crowd.

My expectations for the day were more than met. The weather was just shy of perfect; the bride was glowing in her handmade dress; and the couple hosted a meaningful, fun-loving event, DIY-ed to the very last detail. Everyone was simply brimming with love—and, of course, fresh Maryland crab. Enjoy! xo
