First Wedding After the Move to Maryland

I had the keen sense to reach out to Jodie with Barefoot Beach Bride wedding planning services in Ocean City Md, before making my move to Maryland.  It turned out to be an excellent connection and not long after meeting with her, I got my first wedding in Fenwick De, only 9 blocks from my condo in Ocean City Md.  I wasn't sure what to expect, only having done full or half day weddings in the past, but this one hour ceremony on the beach was the perfect combination of elegance and intimacy.

The wedding was so sweet and intimate, only about ten guests and the atmosphere was relaxed and blissfully light.  Jodie officiated with words of love and life long happiness and only the sounds of the waves crashing in the background and the occasional call of a seagull were heard.

The brides chose to do a sand unity by combining sands of different colors into one jar to represent their commitment to each other and their new marriage.

After they kissed for the first time as bride and bride, they shared their first dance on the sand in front of everyone they loved and cared about most.

The way they looked into each other's eyes as they danced and repeated their vows, you could just see the incredible amount of love they shared.
