Derrick & Leah's Elegant Waterfront Wedding, Pt. II: The Ceremony | Lynchburg Wedding Photographers at Silver Swan Bayside, Maryland

Derrick and Leah chose to have a Sunday brunch wedding, which was entirely as awesome as it sounds. (Who wouldn't want to have a heaping big breakfast and bottomless mimosas at their reception?! But we're getting ahead of ourselves.) By the time Leah and Derrick got to Silver Swan Bayside, many of their guests had already arrived and were enjoying the stunning view of the Chesapeake Bay. The morning ocean breeze whipped through the coral tulle that decorated their arbor as the 100 guests took their seats. 

He didn't want to see her until the moment her father walked her down the aisle (and watch for his secret handshake with Derrick!). The joy on their faces was unmistakable and totally contagious. Even their officiant was emotional, and by the time both sets of parents surrounded them and spend several minutes praying over them, there was hardly a dry eye on the lawn.

As soon as the ceremony was over, Leah kicked off her shoes and they went on their first adventure together... coming in Pt. III!
