Today's real wedding was photographed by Robin Shotola Photography, who sent it into us for our feature today! The couple, Victor and Jenn had a waterfront wedding in Pasadena, Maryland at the Celebrations at the Bay which borders the Chesapeake Bay. Their August wedding was graced with beautiful sunshine and blue skies which not only makes the day easier but photos better as well!
The two self-proclaimed 'geeks' included superhero memorabilia throughout their whole day. You'll see it incorporated to the very beginning (with the groom's Hulk hands and cuff links), even the groom and groomsmen's socks followed suit!
Before the ceremony, the couple did their first look! These are always so fun, and it's so sweet to see the couple's faces as they see each other for the first time on their wedding day.
The ceremony was held outside right on the Bay with the crisp water and blue skies as the background while they exchanged their vows. It was simply beautiful! Guests were seated facing a gorgeous, flower-covered arbor that was simple but lovely.
The reception mimicked the ceremony decor with the floral arrangements and centerpieces. It was simple but chic with white table covers and the beautiful greenery in their flowers. Beyond that, you'll also notice the superhero theme carried throughout the reception with the place cards and the table numbers! They were very creative and it definitely showed.
After a delicious dinner with great company, the couple cut their wedding cake. It was a beautiful and classic four-tier cake, decorated with fresh florals and black ribbon. Yum!
The speeches of the evening brought lots of laughs and some tears as well. They were very sentimental and so sincere! It was hard not to get emotional!
Before you knew it, it was time for the first dance and then eventually a night full of dancing! The couple looked so adorable out there together and you could tell they were so deeply in love.
When asked if she had any advice for brides currently planning their weddings, Jenn advised, "Laugh!" and to just remember that everyone is there because they love you and want you to be happy. "It's the best feeling ever."
Congratulations Victor and Jenn! We wish you the very best in your new life together!
