Genie and Jordan actually met over thirteen years ago when they both attended the same high school in Houston, TX. Even after he moved away, the two stayed in touch and continued to deepen their strong friendship. Their love continued to flourish despite the fact that Genie was attending college in Texas while Jordan attended the Naval Academy in Maryland. One November day, Jordan proposed along the water’s edge in Annapolis, and since the city has special meaning to them both, they decided to hold their wedding there on this beautiful summer day.
Genie and her bridesmaids got ready for the big day together at the Marriott Annapolis Waterfront Hotel. There they were professionally styled by Amie Decker Beauty dressed in beautiful coordinating floral robes. What a beautiful setting for a wedding celebration! After everyone was ready to go, wonderful professional photos were taken by Renee Michele Photography on the docks overlooking the Chesapeake Bay.
Their ceremony took place at The Naval Academy Chapel. Genie was such a gorgeous bride! Her delicate headband was the perfect accessory for her vintage style wedding gown. We can’t say enough how beautiful the beading along the top and sleeves and lace throughout the skirt were! Jordan was sure to wear his Full Dress Whites for this special occasion and of course, he looked so handsome. And with this being a military wedding, the ceremony exit concluded with the traditional Arch of Swords as Genie was welcomed into the naval family with that gentle swat!
After formal photos, we were off to the reception. The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club is an amazing venue, filled with nautical flair and gorgeous water views. The garden landscape and waterfront location was so lovely, providing wonderful areas to film the happy couple. Inside, the venue was beautifully decorated in the navy blue and corals found in the dresses of the bridal party. Soo Son of Silverstems provided beautiful floral arrangements for this occasion. And Entertainment Exchange’s Nightsong kept the party rolling and the guests enjoying themselves thoroughly on the dance floor!
Congratulations to such a sweet couple! We wish all the best to Eugenia and Jordan!
