Taryn and Mike hosted a gorgeous waterfront wedding at one of our favorite venues, The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club, on June 9, 2012. Our DJ Mike Bell loved working with this sweet, madly-in-love couple from start to finish. Erin Rexroth of Erin J. Photography captured some beautiful, fresh images of this wedding (not to mention the ridiculously photogenic bride and groom!) and was nice enough to share them with us!
Check out this beautiful portrait from Taryn and Mike's "first look" before the ceremony! Taryn's beautiful hairstyle was courtesy of the talented ladies at Up-Do's for I-Do's.
We loved the subtle taupe bridesmaids' dresses and the bright, colorful bouquets, provided by Flower Follies!
The rose petals were a fun touch to this shot, but the faces on Taryn's and Mike's attendants made it priceless!
After a fun set of introductions (to Martin Solveig & Dragonette's "Hello" for the parents and bridal party, and Avicii's "Levels" for Taryn and Mike), the happy couple shared their first dance to "You Are the Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne.
Of course, a father/daughter dance calls for a sentimental song, and what song could possibly fit the bill more than Steve Tyrell's version of "The Way You Look Tonight," as featured in the remake of "Father of the Bride?" Taryn and her dad Mike made a great choice here!
Later, Mike and his mom Maria shared their mother/son dance to a really unique track: Dave Matthews' cover of The Beatles' "In My Life." This live track was one I predict will be a hit with many grooms (and their moms) at future weddings!
Taryn and Mike clearly had fun with cutting their wedding cake from Fiona's Cakes, after which guests happily dug in!
Finally, it was time for DJ Mike Bell to do what he does best: fill up the dance floor! Taryn, Mike and their guests had a fantastic time dancing to a wide variety of tracks, old and new. The night ended on a high note, with the couple's choice of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" for their last dance of the evening.
Thanks so much again, Taryn and Mike, for having us as part of your beautiful wedding. We wish you all the happiness in the world! Thanks again, also, to the wonderful team of wedding professionals, especially Erin J. Photography for the stunning photos!
