Couple: Darby and Jake Wedding Date: May 8, 2010
DJ: Michael Bell
From their first contact with us, it was obvious that Darby and Jake were absolutely wonderful. Working on their music was hardly "work," and their wedding was beautiful and unique. Photographer Larry Huffman captured some gorgeous images of this amazing couple's special day!
As always, the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club provided a spectacular setting -- "breathtaking" isn't even the word. The evening kicked off with a warm, intimate outdoor ceremony with unparalleled bay views. One really funny moment happened during the vows -- just as Jake said "I do," the wind gusted hard, getting a chuckle out of everyone! Just another memorable, touching moment of many throughout the night.
The reception took place in the Tavern Ballroom, one of my favorite spots within the venue. Teresa Hunter and her team at the Beach Club were accommodating and kind as always, and the service and five-course meal were second to none. Guests were also wowed by the couple's incredible beach-themed wedding cake, complete with sailboats and crabs, provided by Charm City Cakes. (The cake was actually filmed for Chef Duff Goldman's TV show "Ace of Cakes" -- can't wait 'til it airs!)
Darby and Jake shared their first dance as husband and wife to Keith Urban's "Making Memories of Us," and then guests kicked up their heels to all kinds of rock, country, oldies, disco and pop. At one point I was requested to play "Finnegan's Wake" so that Darby's family could dance a jig. It was a lot of fun!
Thanks so much again to Darby and Jake, and to the wonderful wedding professionals who made their day extra special!
