Chesapeake Bay Beach Club Wedding | Kate & Aaron

October 20, 2017

Kate and Aaron’s Chesapeake Bay Beach Club wedding was nothing short of fabulous the first weekend of October right as Fall began.  Kate and Aaron lucked out with 99% clear skies and the rain clouds overhead cleared just in time for their outdoor ceremony. Alison Harper & Company made all the girls feel extra special and beautiful all morning at The Inn at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club.  They were wed under an arbor designed by Floral and Bloom Designs overlooking the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. They were piped down the aisle by a bagpiper to set off the celebration inside the ballroom, where guests dined on a buffet of filet and mushroom risotto. Later in the night they filled  their dessert plates with cookies from the cookie bar, a Pittsburgh tradition.  The guests danced the night away and bid the couple adieu under a bridge of sparklers outside the beach house.  Even though the day was unseasonably hot and muggy, the couple never missed a beat on the dance floor and the love in the room was palpable.
