Weekend Wedding in Annapolis, Maryland

I had the wonderful opportunity to head to Annapolis, Maryland for my cousin’s wedding in August. While the drive there was stressful to say the least (New York City and the Jersey turnpike around rush hour is no joke!) it was worth it.

We stayed at the Loews Annapolis hotel which is also where the wedding reception was. It was a beautiful hotel; rustic nautical elements around every corner. Just a step outside was the downtown area full of restaurants, shops, and the Chesapeake Bay. The town itself is full of charm. We had a little bit of time to explore before the wedding and even had a chance to try some of that famous Maryland crab. Yum.

My cousin’s wedding was one of a kind. The duo exchanged vows at the beautiful chapel on the Naval Academy. I have never seen such a beautiful church! The organ itself was like none other. It was simply a once in a lifetime wedding and I was so happy to be a part of it.

Our Engagement on Block Island

Last Saturday my boyfriend and I headed to Block Island to say goodbye to summer and enjoy a day of bike riding and sightseeing. Little did I know he had much more in store for us!

After getting off the ferry we rented bikes and decided to head to one of our favorite spots near the North Lighthouse. Not too many people head out to see the lighthouse since it is on the other side of the island and is quite the trek to get to. After riding out to it, we then walk for about a mile on the beach. Behind the lighthouse is a very private beach where we went last summer to look for seaglass.
