Bright Blue Skies and Bay Breezes at the Maritime Museum

June 17, 2020
What a beautiful day to get married! Laurie and Greg were blessed with a bright blue sky and puffy white clouds as a backdrop to the already gorgeous scenery provided by their venue, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum Wedding. From the boathouse and the docks, to the historic and picturesque lighthouse and skipjack, this wedding gallery from tPoz Photography is a dream-come-true!

From the photographer, Teri, of tPoz Photography: I couldn’t have been more excited for Laurie+Greg’s Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum wedding, and I was certainly not disappointed. I mean, this couple is gorgeous already, but I was obsessed with the attire and details that they chose for their wedding day! When Laurie told me she was flying out to LA to try on some Grace Loves Lace gowns, I was practically drooling with excitement! Similarly, Greg’s chic style complimented hers – those custom made pants with the Indochino jackets… on point!!
We watched and fretted over the weather that whole week, seeing potential storms, winds & cool temperatures. And although the clouds parted for the sun to shine, it was windy and very chilly. Luckily, their venue, the Chesapeake Maritime Museum,  provided several options for the ceremony location. As a result they decided to move their ceremony from the Tolchester Beach Bandstand to inside the Small Boat Shed. And it was even more intimate and cozy!
The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a beautiful Maryland wedding venue, and there are lots of little nooks to get some amazing wedding portraits! The Hooper Strait Lighthouse is an icon of the Maryland waterfront, and helped to create some light and airy photos. In contrast, the dark clouds mixed with the bright sunshine made for quite the dramatic backdrop to wedding party portraits onboard the newly restored Edna E. Lockwood skipjack. I loved the way the sunlight danced off both the water and the sparkly bridesmaids dresses! After the vows were sealed with a kiss, the party kicked off under a sailcloth tent on Navy Point.
