Matt & Annette, or their shorthand, MattNet were married on July 3rd at St. Pius X church in Bowie, MD and they held their reception in the beautiful ballroom of Holy Family Catholic Church in Davidsonville. Before the big day, Matt’s family brewed up their own special bridal shower at their Bowie home, where Matt’s father and brothers put together a feast that rivaled even a professional caterer.
On the wedding day, Matt & Annette prepared themselves at their local Bowie homes, concurrently. Taking advantage of the sentimental value in these locations, we captured bridal party formals with their houses in the background. Limousines Inc helped us make sure everyone was where they needed to be, and right on time. The ceremony, which went one a little longer than anticipated–but didn’t cause any major delays–brought hundreds of family members from all over the place and who posed for some quick (and big) family portraits immediately following the ceremony.
After the ceremony, it was off to Holy Family Catholic Church, where we spent some time with the Bridal Party in front of their beautiful sanctuary building. With time dwindling and appetites mounting, we let the bridal party go and had about 15 minutes to work with Matt & Annette in front of Holy Family’s historic cedar chapel.
The ensuing evening unfolded beautifully. To guest’s delight, The Chesapeake Grill filled everyone’s bellies with salmon and flank steak. Shew-sical Entertainment brought everyone’s feet to the dance floor, where Matt & Annette invited friends and family to participate in a dance the junior bridesmaids made up. Meanwhile, Party Pictures RVA set up their photobooth in the corner where guests got wild with the props. The gorgeous floral arrangements were provided by the Black Eyed Susan Florist, and the cake was made with care by Scratch Bakery–it was delicious.
