Emily and John’s romance dates all the way back to 8th grade! John was the cute older boy Emily had a crush on but it was another three years before they actually started dating. Emily had just graduated from high school, John was home for the weekend from the Naval Academy, and they were both invited to the same wedding. They reconnected and the rest is history!

After meeting Emily and John at their Naval Academy engagement session in downtown Annapolis last summer, we knew their wedding was going to be incredible! Kruse and Vieira Events did the most incredible job with the florals and decor and Emily wore the most beautiful Steven Birnbaum Bridal dress with a bow detail below the open back. We had the most beautiful weather and after a ceremony at the Naval Academy Chapel and a few photos in the Superintendent’s Garden and in front of Bancroft Hall, we headed over to their reception at the Westin. It was an incredible day and we couldn’t be more excited for Emily and John to be husband and wife!

From Emily:
The Naval Academy and Annapolis has always been special to us, and it’s so beautiful we couldn’t think of any other place to get married in. I just started college at Ohio State when we started dating (why we chose buckeyes as our favors!) and I’d often visit him when he was at the academy. Since almost all of our guests were from out of town, we wanted the reception location to be close to USNA and convenient for them. The Westin was perfect because we could transform the room really anyway we wanted, and it would comfortably fit everyone.
 
We wanted to make sure the wedding wasn’t too nautical! We decided on soft blues, lush greenery, and neutral florals. The soft lighting and wooden tables gave the space a comfortable mood! Our planners Julie and Caitlin did a beautiful job with the florals and design, we couldn’t have been happier. My bridesmaids were really important to me; they all have such different tastes! Everyone wore a different dress, but they flowed together so beautifully.
