Monica and Pedro’s St. Mary’s Church wedding in Annapolis, MD was a multi-state, even international affair.  A Ceremony in Annapolis followed by a Manassas, Virginia reception is not easy to pull off.  Monica and Pedro did an amazing job!  They and their guests partied well past midnight.  More after the photos!

St. Mary’s Church Wedding in Annapolis, MD

We have photographed quite a few weddings at St. Mary’s and it never gets old to me.  It is such a beautiful church and I always find something new to love about shooting there.  The bride and groom got ready just across town at the Westin hotel which is a great place to prepare for a wedding.  Following the beautiful ceremony Monica, Pedro and their guests made the journey to Manassas, where they feasted on steak and lobster and danced into the morning.  They did an amazing job of incorporating their Portuguese heritage into the reception.  Did I mention the food? It was incredible!
