Can you guess where these two lovebirds got engaged? During an afternoon hike at Scott’s Run Nature Preserve overlooking the Potomac River. “Brian kept getting ahead of me on the trail until he decided to take a break atop an oversized rock,” Caitlin said. “I was hesitant at first to climb (more like crawl) to get to it, but he was adamant.” It was no surprise that their engagement session took place near the water too.  “Fun fact: The Chesapeake Maritime Museum is right next door to the Inn at Perry Cabin where The Wedding Crashers was filmed,” she said.

Veronica and Doyin were married in downtown Annapolis, Md. with harbor views of the Chesapeake Bay on March 2. The bride wore a Cinderella ball gown, accessorized with a jeweled embellishments, a black faux fur stole, and a vibrant bouquet of ruby red ranunculuses and garden roses, while bridesmaids wore long luminescent silver taffeta dresses, accessorized with bouquets of white ranunculuses and blush garden roses. You won’t believe Doyin’s facial expression as Veronica walks down the aisle of the church! Priceless. The reception was decorated with hundreds of floating candles to create a romantic ambience with blue uplighting, and family and friends were surprised at the end of the night when the newlyweds changed into traditional Nigerian attire.
