I hope that you are ready for a sweet and personal wedding in Annapolis today! Leslie and Rick said “I do” their way at the courthouse in Annapolis, Maryland, where they wanted to have an intimate wedding ceremony. The couple opted to exchange wedding vows with just their parents present at the Annapolis Courthouse before heading to downtown Annapolis to be joined by oodles of friends and family and a much larger wedding reception celebration. Leslie’s bountiful purple bridal bouquet was just the hue she wanted, and it complimented her beautiful sweetheart neckline wedding dress perfectly. The couple didn’t need much decor at their courthouse ceremony, instead focusing on the ceremony itself, which left them to splurge on winter wedding decor for their reception. Leslie and Rich’s wedding ceremony may have been small, but you can feel all that love just jump off the page in these pretty pictures from DuHon Photography! I especially adore the giddiness of the bride’s face for their first look photos – a great moment between bride and groom!
From the bride: The main priorities for our wedding was the actual wedding ceremony. We take marriage very seriously and decided to have a private wedding ceremony with just our parents present. By doing this we avoided the pomp and circumstance of a wedding ceremony and instead focused on us. Royal purple and gold are regal colors and since we were married the end of winter it was the perfect choice for our wedding colors.
Congratulations to Leslie and Rick! Thank you for sharing your intimate Annapolis courthouse wedding ceremony with us. Stay tuned, up next we’re sharing with you their purple-clad ballroom wedding reception!
