November 11 is a special day for Chelsea and Matthew. In 2011, it was the day he asked her to be his girlfriend; it felt “true to our hearts” to get married on the same date, Chelsea says. Throughout their Maryland wedding they also embraced fall colors, especially burgundy and gold, and the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. The couple especially loved their flowers, homemade framed love quotes on each table and their first dance to Kenny Loggins’ “Danny’s Song.” Their venues, St. Mary’s Parish in Annapolis and Chesapeake Bay Beach Club on Kent Island, are both special places to the couple and their loved ones. We loved their lace burgundy bridesmaid dresses and nearly naked wedding cake with fall blooms. Everything came together to create the perfect fall bayside wedding! We wish Chelsea and Matthew nothing but the best in their marriage!
Do you have any advice for couples planning their weddings now? “Take your time and enjoy it! Don’t get so wrapped up in all the small details, none of that ever matters in the end because everything manages to fall into place. At the end of the day, there’s only one thing that matters; that’s getting married to the love of your life! Soak up every second of the day because it goes by fast. If you pause to appreciate all the love, family and friends who are present and supporting you, it makes you appreciate everything so much more.”
